Thanks, Chaser! I had almost forgotten those.

There are downsides though. Sometimes I have to wait until the critters get out of the way

You're killing me, TractorMan. As my students would say, that setup is "goals."

Thank you. The range was a long drawn out dream of a friend and I. We started out shooting 22 lr at a table in the yard on the grass. It was hot in the summer and my buddy said man we need to get the sun off of us. So we bought an umbrella,drilled a hole in the table and shot for another year. Then my buddy said man it would nice to have a breeze, so we bought a fan. Then we decided we were tired of picking up the spent casings out of the grass when we were done shooting so we poured a slab. We shot for another year and my buddy said man it would be nice to have a roof over our heads. I got to thinking about it one day and decided that it was headed in this direction so I got another friend to help me build the present shooting house. My shooting buddy did not know anything about it until he came over to shoot with me one day. He sat down looked at me and said I don't think we need anything else. I just laughed. We are blessed and we know it and thank God for the fact that we live in this great country and have the right to pursue a dream like this. Yes we are blessed!

I envy those with backyard shooting ranges. I grew up in a rural area, just outside Beckley W Va, where you could shoot just outside the back door. Now live in the 'burbs where I cannot even set up a air rifle range or the SWAT team would be raiding my property. Currently it is a 45 - 60 min drive each way to the club. We are having a new house built in a neighborhood that will be cut the drive down to 10 minutes but still in a 'burb. I lobbied for a house farther out, but darling wife, who is a city girl wants close neighbors

I live in a city of 20 thousand people and drive 30 miles to a range.
But once a month I drive 90 miles too my home town and my sister lets
me shoot at her 20 acre old hog farm.
Here is my Super Secret Swiss 25 yard test range.


Was a great wind free test range
But now look @ it.

Yah WTHeck that 1948 JD is under the crap....
At least my portable shooting table was not crushed.
The winter of 2018-19 was a bummer lots of snow and a few weeks of -30 below zero.

This a DYI shooting bench under a cover. It’s a 100 yard range. The cover is really nice during the summer in Texas. The bench plans can be found on a YouTube video.

This is my long range (up to 600 yds) targets. Hung the AR500 with bolts on soft metal plate. Then used used old firehouse to hang the targets on some 2” pipe. Set cut up utility poles in a 3’ deep trench as a back stop.
