So where can you shoot in Arizona?

I feel sorry for people who have to drive a "fur piece" to shoot. I moved from the Northern Shenandoah Valley in Virginia to a small desert town in Nevada just to have place to shoot this big target rifle about which I dreamed and eventually built. Things were great between September 2004 when I got here until November 2018. We elected a Vegas thug who demands under-the-table payments to issue building permits, easements or variances, et cetera. Our State Legislature is all Tyranny-crats now, too. If Carson City begins to stick California-style firearms laws up our assets, I'll pull my stakes and head to Utah. I love Nevada, but I also love my Liberty to own my various firearms. The beauty of federalism is that I can move to preserve that Liberty.

I was fortunate to live close to a site that was managed by the Oregon Dept. of Forestry and frequented by a lot of NWFA members who took very good care of the place. Sure, we had the twits and tools show up there and trash the place from time to time but we took care of that as well.

We just moved to Arizona in February and, fnally, we are fully settled in and my firearms are starting to demand some time on the range. I'll do some indoor pistol (.22LR & .45ACP) shooting this summer. Eventually, though, I'll want to break out the larger calibers with longer barrels and use those.

I understand that it's hard to find outdoor places to shoot these days but I hope to start finding and using some spots this Fall.

It's been a while since I last posted. This past Summer my wife and I sold our home in Glendale, and bought one in Lake Havasu City. Since then I joined the Lake Havasu City Sportsman's Club here. It's a fantastic range that has rifle, (out to 300 yards), Pistol, Trap, Skeet, and 5-Stand Sporting Clays. It's a fantastic place to shoot.

It's very friendly and a single membership, (member & spouse), is only $75.00 @ year. It's located in Sara Park, just as you come into town from the south. There are also nice ranges in both Kingman, (Mohave Sportsman's Club), and Ft. Mohave, (Tri-State Shooting Park), off Boundary Cone Rd. in Ft. Mohave. The Kingman club has a very nice 1,000 yard range.

The Shotgun ranges here in Lake Havasu have been closed because of Corona. But I'm hoping they'll open soon so I can smash some more clay before it gets too hot.

I realize the original posting may need some updating. My old neighbor complains many of the indoor ranges are closed or operations restricted due to the CDC warning.

When I lived in Buckeye, I would go to the Joe Foss Shooting Complex. A great bunch of folks there and the daily fee was very reasonable.
