I posted about this a few years ago. On and off, I've kinda been doing my own thing, but doing it all by myself with a few friends is a lot of work, but I would really like to spread the load and have bigger groups to shoot with, just so we can do more stuff.

One of the events we do is "rifle golf" so setting up targets out at a distance with a safe backstop, and then dropping cones at intervals of 50-100m moving out to 300-500m from the target.

Rules are simple. Big difficulty was getting everyone to see the target. and on our first outing we had a few issues with the target set up, which has since been fixed.

Right now I'm trying to gauge interest. I'd like to find locations where it's reasonable to get people from LA/OC/LV and other nearby places. I do have an area near barstow I can work out a deal with the landowner to use.

Having other chronic health problems in the middle of a pandemic can really eat up a lot of your time.
Tell me about it! Bladder cancer operation in October 2021. I'm now blessed with having to find a porcelain convenience about every hour. Feels like five gallons; it's actually about half a cup. I wore absorbent underwear until just this week when I said to helsinki with it. I've had cancer twice in four years (kidney and bladder). It's such a pain in the posterior that I've decided if I ever get it again, I'll just let it kill me. I'm 64, not married, no hair and nobody gives an airborne copulation about me. Some would ask, "Why so fatalistic?" The answer is because I just don't give a da-mn anymore. I just don't. I'll work to keep myself alive but if Death comes calling in the form of a third attack on me by cancer, I'll just let it have me...

I had a heart attack a few years ago that nearly killed me, about a month after my 40th birthday. Last year my heart got so bad it was about to finish the job, and the docs put a new one in. As my heart was failing it started to take other organs with it first, including my liver, so I got one of those too. Spent a few months recovering and learning how to walk. I'm still recovering, but I get stronger every day.

I'd say you got triple super-lucky to get two vital organs in one operation or in one year, whatever it was. The cost had to be just slightly less than launching a Saturn V rocket to the moon. My kidney cancer of June 2018 was $66,000; my dad paid it because I had no health insurance. The cost of my bladder cancer of March 2021 is unknown to me, other than approximately $6,000 left to me by my health insurance company. As you might surmise, my opinion of my health insurance company is not one to be heard by toddlers (they repeat everything they hear) or kids in grade school...

"God has special provenance for children, fools, and the USA" I must qualify as one or several of those, God has definitely been looking out for me.
