Registered on here just to give my support for the range.

I am very excited to see this coming along.

I'd buy a membership now if you guys had one available.

Thank you folks; I'll post what I know as soon as everything is worked out.

But, progress is progress; I figure we're maybe at the 20% mark. Of the four principles, I'm the only one "retired", two have full time first responder responsibilities, and our main principle has so many projects going he sometimes waves to himself traveling the opposite way on the road.

Moving right along; portable range delivered yesterday so we can begin CCW classes when both our glorious state comes thru and the retail/training areas are ready. Lots of progress on range walls and filling.

Personally I'm wondering if we couldn't come up with a better name for the facility.

Every range needs one of these. We'll move it out of the handicap space as soon as the wheel is repaired.

Still on track albeit it slow. Intermediate wall between 5 lane and 6 lane bays got finished today. Latest on range is around 5 months.
