    Just checking for interests for now

    How many would be interested in attending if I hosted a day at our range for your long guns??

    400yd range with backstops at 100yd, 250yd, and 400yd.

    Over near the GSO Airport

    Checking interests before planning anything for when the weather is perfect.

    I'd be interested, but won't be able to do it for at least a month.

    Same here...

    The rest of March, and the first two weekends in April are already booked full for me...

    There isn't a range that I know of... this would be on our farm. Wouldn't cost ya anything as long as ya brought your own targets and ammo...lol

    Maybe even go for lunch before or after and exercise some OC rights.

    Count me in. I have finally got a load worked up for my 308 since I put the brake on it. shoots pretty good (1/2 MOA) 4 shoots. Cant find a longer range without driving hours. I can bring extra ammo if anyone is interested. Click image for larger version.

    It's a little bit of a drive for me but I may be interested, depending on my schedule, since I rarely get the chance to shoot beyond 100yds.
    I have 10" square and 6" square AR500 steel targets I can bring too.

    Where'd you get 'em? My mild steel 3/8" will only handle pistols

    I had a couple 4x8' sheets cut up to get exactly what I wanted and sold the rest on a few different boards for MUCH less than any online sellers were charging. I did 1/2" AR500 with 1/2" mounting holes at the top corners. I've tried to do another run a couple different times since I've gotten so many requests for more but getting the material at a reasonable cost has been very difficult. They've been hit with almost everything(M193, M855, .308, 6.8, FN5.7, 6.5G, .45, 9mm, .22lr, .17hmr, 6.5swiss, etc.) as close as 25yds with minor cratering and at 100yds with no damage at all.

    I'd love to do this, and I have several children that would also love to.

    Please count me +at least 2 possibly 4+.

    Wanted to find somewhere to shoot at longer distances close to home.
