Hi everyone - I know a lot of you have a lot of knowledge and I have next to nothing about rifles, so here goes. I bought a used remington 700 270 with nikon scope last year. It is a beauty but still sits in my closet unfired by me. I'm an older guy, late 50's, and always wanted to get in to shooting. I tried many other gun websites but I don't get many answers to my "dumb" questions. I live in upstate NY near Rochester. Does anyone know if there is public land where I can try my rifle? Like I said I'm a novice. I joined the NRA in January but don't see much on their website about upstate NY. As to gun clubs near Rochester they don't say much about rifle shooting. No one in my family is a hunter or rifle, shotgun owner. I don't know where to start, any suggestions or help would be appreciated! THANKS EVERYONE!
