    I'm planning a trip to the range on Saturday July 13th. I'm thinking either Caswell's Indoor Range on Stapley and the US60 or Usery Pass in North East Mesa. I'll be heading out at noon. Just thought I'd throw it out there in case anybody wants to meet up. I'm open to either location or name another location close by and I'd be glad to meet there too.

    We went to C2 Tactical yesterday and loved it. New place, great climate control (Caswells was a snow storm last time we went), 15.00 per shooter and you can bring your own ammo. They usually have some type of food truck there for lunch (it was good the 2 times we have eaten there, BBQ joint and grilled cheese truck). Friendly people and one thing I liked is they have a bench seating area for re-loading, waiting your turn if you are sharing a lane, sitting your stuff down etc.

    If we can round up some more 9mm plinking ammo, we are in. :)

    Were you thinking rifle & pistol or just pistol lanes?

    Thanks!

    I'm thinking rifle and pistol's. I have some .223/5.56 but I'm still trying to round up some more .40 and maybe some more .380.
    I've never heard of C2 Tactical. Where is that?

    Edit: Googled it (C2 Tactical)...it's by Ikea. That would be doable as well. I'm down for any place that isn't too crowded.

    I am always up for having AR fun so that would work for us. Seen 40 Tula at our local WalMart for 12.00 for 50 rounds today but we have 9mm. Pistol Parlour, Healy's and AJI (AJI highest of those) have had 40 everytime we have gone there in past 2-3 weeks.

    I do most of my shopping at Pistol Parlor. Last time I saw .40 there it was $29 for a box of 50. (American Eagle) Hopefully it comes down a little soon. I haven't been to Healy's yet but it's close to my house so I'll have to pop in there and check it out.

    For Saturday July 13th, I'm able to meet as early as 10am. If anybody is interested in meeting up let me know. Also any of the mentioned East Valley locations are fine by me. Let me know your time and location preference. I'm thinking Caswell's since its so close to my house.

    Any takers? Queenglamis are you still in?

    Sorry y'all, can't make it this weekend. We have a group going to C2 on the 27th, mostly from my work but others are welcome to show up. We have 1 newbie and we offered to share guns and ammo (1st trip is free!) so can't use up all of our target ammo in a month. :D Thanks for invite, was wierd timing as I have been trying to organize a work shoot for sometime and it just came together this month.

    No problem. Maybe next time we can get a larger group together and take over a range. Even a desert shoot would be fun.

    When you're worn out it can be a long drive down the mountain and back! It seems like every time I travel the 17 there is a horrific accident. I definitely have respect for I-17.

    We'll get it together!! More time to plan means a better Meet-up when we do! Then again if folks wanna go to Ben Avery...where ever is best for all of you since anywhere other then around the corner for Us is 2 Hrs. Each way....

    What I'm hoping to do by then is to be able to have enough extra .22LR to "share" so you all don't feel bad about bringing your rimfires to shoot! I also just ordered a few of the Mossberg 702/715-718 Ext. 25 Rd Mags.......so by then they will be here....

    I ended up going out to the Usery Pass shooting range with my cousin. I was finally able to sight in my AR at 100 yards. It was also fun hitting the metal plates at 200 and 300 yards! It was a pretty nice day. Probably somewhere around 85 or 90 with a very light breeze.
