    I'm looking for a private place to do some target shooting. I don't like going to the public ranges. It would just be my wife and myself, shooting rifle and pistol. Looking for someplace with a good backstop and flat ground, atleast 100yds. I don't know anyone who has any land to where I could do this. We would just be shooting pop cans and plinker targets, all targets And brass would be collected. I live in the northern Kentucky area. I can fix just about anything in a home if you ever have something quit working.

    kymike, I shoot pistol in the back yard and am setting up my rifle range now, though it is somewhat downhill (hard to find level ground in KY) I'll be able to shoot out to 150 yds, I am south of Glasgow about 14 miles dont know how far it would be for ya.

    I'd have to bring the tent to come down there. Lol. How are you setting up your range, prone shooting or bench?

    Thought I'd build benches at one hundred and one fifty yards, with the hill a guy could shoot prone at one hundred.

    That is pretty sweet. Did you design it or find plans for it.

    Any one know of other outdoor ranges near Louisville I typically go to knob creek but they can get pretty pack and gets a little difficult to practice pistol

    Randy's range near Sparta. Can sometimes get busy on weekends in nice weather or deer season, but you can either shoot his reactive targets or bring anything you want as long as its not tannerite or glass. Very friendly, affordable and non-pretentious.
