My brother-in-law has a 200 yd. range set up on his property. He's got spinners and a small gong. We staple paper targets on the backstop. We only ever go there to shoot pistols and/or .22's. Always followed by a cook out.

Same set up at our son's. We shoot across the creek into the hillside.

In the Gone, Nevermore thread, the existence of rifle clubs in high schools should have been mentioned. Not just schools in rural areas, but some schools in large urban areas had them. Most were on school property. We'll never see that again.

I shoot on my land. It's a very secluded and safe shooting range in which we're firing into the side of a ridge as a natural backstop. We are very careful when we shoot (ear protection, no drinking, and you stand way behind the shooter).

We shoot 22's, shotguns and an AR15. The targets are usually plastic junk we retrieve from the garbage. Old milk jugs filled with water are a hit with the shot guns.

Given my poor marksmanship skills I like that I'm NOT shooting at a range.

Maybe Ill see you there. I go there every other month and then a couple times a year at a friend's house where we shoot across a creek and often use tannerite in the targets to confirm hits and for a bit more fun.
