    Post a pic or two of your favorite outdoor shooting spot, whether it's an established range or just someplace out in the boonies.

    If I'm not going to the range for target work, my favorite spot is about 30 minutes from the house on BLM land, back in the hills five miles from the nearest paved road. When I want to get out and just have some fun with my truck and my guns, this is where I go...

    Very similar to the place I go. My only complaint is the 100 yards is about max and sometimes there are some dirtbike weinies out there. I have no problems with dirtbikes but they have a ton of other area to ride in the area, this is the only approved shooting spot. I will have to get pics next time I am out.

    It's pretty much impossible to tell, but there's targets up all over this hill and we have different landmarks measured up to 800 yards. If you look at the clearing on the left side of the picture you can see a few squares and circles that are targets. I believe the gong next to the tree and slightly below that smaller trail at the top of that clearing is either 400 or 500 yards.

    Las Vegas has whats called "the washouts" by some. My circle of friends call it "mile marker 103". Off in the distance you can drive into the washouts that are about 20 to 30 feet deep little canyons.

    Very nice pictures.:)

    I have two ranges.
    The backyard range is good for handguns and 22 rifles out to about 50 yards.
    The dirt pile covers the storm shelter and is just for safety incase the steel is missed.
    Since I'm retired, most days, a couple times a day, I grab a gun and do a little plinking.
    It's also a good setup for low light and dark laser/light practice.

    The other range is several hunderd yards from the house.
    It's a work in progress, so everything has to be moveable until I get it the way I want.

    On the lower end we shoot back to 52 yards.
    The young lady is shooting at that white foot square target, and hitting it. To show how much confidence I have in my friend's shooting, my tractor is down there by the berm.:)

    The furtherest distance I can get is 115 yards.

    Must be nice to be able to shoot without driving anywhere.

    Yes.
    I'm a member of a real nice outdoor range but I haven't been there in over two years. It's hard to get the motivation to drive 40 minutes when I can walk 30 yards and start shooting.
