FYI post. I was there yesterday. The club is now operating under summer hours, 7 - 3 rather than 9 - 5. Qualification for shooting at 600 is shooting a 6" group or less at 300 and knowing the dope to get to 600. There is steel at 200 and 300 on the public line. Every distance on the public line has huge berms now.
The PRS match is the 1st Sunday of every month so the next is the 5th of August. The 600 line should be open after the match.
"Bold move West...", has a nice ring to it. Getting out of NY was mandatory. The high desert is an entirely different world. The thing about this part of AZ is that it's a lot like Florida; most of the people started out in another state.
Still shooting .260, same old Ghost Dancer. Really getting hooked on ARs, two 24" Stag Model 6's and three 16" Uppers.
Recently cobbled up a pair of Savage 24" 11VT's, identical except for chambering, 223 and 308.
223 at 600yd is the bees' knees.
Finally bought a handgun, Ruger American Pistol 9 Pro. Looking at the LCR9, may outfit the household with them.
Latest additions to the house, Granddaughter 21, just started yesterday as bartender at the VFW. Daughter and Grandson 19 arriving first week of October, both staying for good. Great to get the family o/o the Cuomo Evil Empire State.
The Quarters will be a tad packed for the near future, but having the young 'uns near to hand will be a very refreshing experience for this Elder Fart.
Sounds like life is great out there! Enjoy the bedlam while the Grandkids are there!
Our girls are grown and moved out. Our oldest is nearby, our youngest in Jacksonville.
I've been derelict in my shooting over the last couple years: A lot of Drama at Manatee and the club I shoot at in St. Pete has many rules to comply with... I need to become successful so I can buy a plot of land somewhere off the beaten trail.
I have not read this whole thread, but why does Florida let people shoot at Manatees? Seems cruel. Or, for that matter, I think it is nice that Florida has a gun range for Manatees to use, but I always have had the impression they are peace-loving pacifists by nature.
