I was over on that Arizonagonowners site. Man, talk about a cold shoulder!! Sit around for six months & make 100 posts to be able to see a map of shooting spots??? At 74 I could be dead in six months. That was the other negative about Joe Foss range. After chatting with Stan in the office for 20 minutes I got 1 hello & 1 nod on the range. About 20 shooters. Oh well guess they didn't have their coffee yet!

The last one CMP might rattle something in the back of some brains.
I have never been much of a joiner. Todays nonsense about databases, I am very sure I do not want my name on some roll that some day might make it hard for me to breathe. I would like to be that anonymous person that no one knows much about.
Shooting spots can not be much of a secret. After all you looking for a large open area with a back stop.
Have you visited with local LEO's? I have found some interesting things when talking to them.
Thank you. I think I've visited these web sites. Most are shorter ranges or high power matches. I just shoot benchrest. Can't crawl around like I used to. 37 years in construction has ruined my body. LOL I'm not much of a joiner either. I do shoot a match at BRPC once a month but that's it for comp. I did talk to one Buckeye LEO. He said I can shoot in the BLM White Tank land across the road from our community. But to watch out for hikers & off roaders. I find that difficult at 1000 yards so I'll just avoid that area. Don't need jail time.
LOL I wouldn't call them names but they are kind of standoffish. Back in PA where I grew up we encouraged new members to our groups. Yeah I get the "meathead mentality of not cleaning up after you're done shooting". Been on a few cleanups in Nevada desert with the BLM. PITA But It's their forum so their rules. Just hope I don't meet one that needs help.
