    Hey, There.

    I'm a new transplant to the Yuma area. Moved here July 2011 (yeah, I know, what was I thinking).

    Anyway, since we have this new forum, how about folks posting where they go to shoot in the southwest corner of AZ.

    No he shoots straight up and catches the bullets when they fall to reload them again. You're welcome to come up here and shoot. We just shoot out in the hills like most everyone does. But please pick up your used targets.

    Also a somewhat recent, part time, transplant to Desert Hills, AZ. It's quite a difference from home, where the population is somewhat less than a 100 people. The people are friendly here and places to shoot are not too far.:)

    Lake Havasu City for 6 years, here in Glendale for the last 15.

    For Yuma have you tried Adair Park Shooting Range? It's just north of town off 95. They have a range out to 1,000 yards, but you have to bring your own bench, target frames, pretty much everything. They don't offer much in the way of equipment.
