    Here's the deal-

    Saturday, Dec. 5th, I reserved the Provo City range for the day for my family. The whole thing, dawn to dusk. It's in my name, but anyone from here is welcome to come up, OC is, of course, just fine. You will need to supply your own targets, eyes, ears, etc.

    Bring whoever you want whenever you want, pack a lunch, bring your barbecue or dutch ovens if you want, etc. Bring chairs if it's warm enough to sit and visit, that kind of stuff. Just a family friendly range day.

    The only things we need to abide by:

    1. NO GLASS TARGETS

    2. NO ALCOHOL

    3. We will be following the 4 rules.

    4. Everyone on or near the firing line needs eyes and ears, so make sure you bring enough to cover your group.

    5. No shotguns are to be fired at the city's target backers, it tears them up too badly.

    6. The skeet and trap ranges belonging to the Provo gun club are not part of the Provo city range proper, and as such are off limits to us unless they are holding a meet and will allow us to pay and participate that day.

    I also posted this over at http://www.wethearmed.com and http://www.thehighroad.org . So I'm expecting a decent sized turn out. Let's just make sure we do it SAFELY, eh?

    Would you mind if I posted this on utahconcealedcarry.com?

    There is one shotgun position on the berm west of the pistol range if anyone wants to bring a thrower. There is a post to mount a mechanical thrower or you can use a hand thrower. It isn't a big space but can accommodate 2 or 3 shooters at a time.

    SGTJensen, what restaurant were you thinking of? If it is the one between 100 and 200 North on 200 West (behind Zion's Bank), it has closed.

    Also, did you reserve both the rife and pistol ranges?

    Edit: spelling

    No, it is the I Buffet (International Buffet) between ShopKo and Movies 8. Lunch is $6.99, and Dinner is $9.99.

    Yes I did. The whole range, for the whole day.

    It was in the thread title the whole time, Mr. Sparky! :P At least you didn't judge this book by its cover.

    Update-

    Talked to the president of the Provo Gun Club yesterday. They'll be there. So if you want to shoot trap, skeet or 5 stand, bring your shotguns, 7.5, 8, or 9 shot loads and a little money. It's something like 5 bucks a round for trap is all. So it's pretty reasonably priced.

    Info is here.

    Basically $10 for each range, but you have to go to downtown Provo to pick up the key and again to return it. Great place to shoot.

    B1ack5mith, it would cost you money if you reserved it yes. But I did, so you can't, but I can let whoever I want to shoot since I reserved it. Make sense now?

    EDIT: And by that I mean I want anybody and everybody that wants to come up and shoot that day to do so!

    Well, not many replies but with over 400 views, I'm hoping for a decent OCDO turn out. I know I've got a good contingent from WTA coming........

    I don't know if they were taken in for the winter or what, but I was up there last week and all of the movable target holders for the pistol range are gone, so if you want to shoot at less than 50 yards, you may need to bring target stands.

    Take the 800 North Orem exit (exit 272), go east 3.7 miles and head up Provo Canyon (left lane). Take the Squaw Peak turnoff (1.9 miles) and go 3/4 mile to the gate for the range.
