    Any else on here live in Tucson or surrounding cities?

    Hoping to find some like-minded, fellow gun lovers around (as opposed to people who find out I love shooting, and reply with a blank-faced "...why?" With a solid sneer added for measure haha)

    Mahalo,
    Laura

    We are located west of Ryan Field by a few miles. My wife and I are new to shooting sports.

    Not quite that far, we are about four miles west of Ryan field just past Sandario south.

    Lived here 25 years yet I never remember where three points is, haha. Technically I'm in Oro Valley, so just South of Catalina and a while Northwest from Central Tucson.

    Speaking of, I'm at the Folk Festival to see a friend play, and I swear, every time I drive Downtown, it only ends in tears & ulcer pain. And it doesn't help when half of its under construction so the streets are blocked. Agh! :p

    Dang, Ryan Field? Yeah, Oro Valley is at the North tip of town, you're WAY on the other side haha. It actually surprises how close I usually am to that area & Ajo when I'm out (shooting, archery, doc appointments, etc)

    We like to go shooting up on BLM land. We take Sandario north from Ajo to Manville turn west and keep going until you run out of road.

    Just moved to the area not even a week ago! I love to go shooting but haven't really explored the area yet.

    Wow, Laura, you must live near me! I'm also in Oro Valley-- by Oracle Rd and Rancho Vistoso. I go shooting at the Pima Pistol Club in Catalina. Want to go sometime?

    Haha yeah! You're about 5-10 min from me. I live down Palisades at the intersection of 1st & Palisades, across from the big white Methodist church.

    I'd love to go! I've never had the chance to check it out yet, since I've been doing all my shooting at Marksman 2. But Pima Pistol Club is much closer. Send me a message and we'll set something up! :)

    My marksmanship with my Colt is decent, but with my Ruger I'm getting some good grouping but a lot of outliers, too...unfortunately I wear contacts with Torque (even though i only have mild astigmatism, my hobbies all require good marksmanship, hence the early measures) and while I'm waiting for them to come in, I'm stuck with contacts without Torque (not sure I'm spelling that right) so my aim isn't as good as I'm used to. SO frustrating.

    I don't know how to message you personally, but I pass by your house at least 3x a week... I like to go to the Starbuck's at 1st & Oracle :) Anyway, why don't you send me a message with a day and time to stop by or a phone#. I wanted to give you mine, but not to EVERYONE! Lol! If you live right at the intersection, I'm sure I can find your house. If not, I just make a fool of myself knocking at the wrong house... no biggie :) Talk soon.
