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!

I found this
check each club's website to confirm before heading to a match:
PRGC Phoenix Rod and Gun Club | Serving the Valley of the Sun since 1937
RSSC Rio Salado Sportsman's Club – The East Valley's Premier Outdoor Shooting Range
BASF Desert Sharpshooters Rifle Club
TRC Tucson Rifle Club Index Page
AZLRPS AZ Long Range PRS

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. :)
