    Shooter count rising Daly. Will easily make 80! Time will tell if we break 100. Will be a very nice prize table also!!

    This will give travelers some idea of the geography of the range what to watch. Those cuts for the other firing lines funnel wind. The berms in front of the 1k line give vertical if theres a tail wind.

    What a beautiful place! Thanks for the great video Alex!

    Can I shoot at 100 or 10 yards against the 1,000's next August?

    That drone camera got me scared of flying again. Actually got disoriented watching that. Time for a drink.

    The range sure is expansive. See that the 1,000 has to be shut down when all the other side ranges are in operation. Guess that part is only open at designated times as the entire complex has to be shut down to do the 1,000. That idea does have merit though as it better utilizes all the available area for different distance and format usage.

    Sure is a nice place. Just keep that snow there. Do not want to deal with that. Looks super enjoyable for those that can make that shoot.

    I've been there 2 times and it is one of the most beautiful ranges to see and shoot. Yes, a few of the fast 360's got me wobbly. :eek: Thanks for posting. Steve

    Tom, I hold you fully responsible for making sure that it’s flip flop weather! You know Ga boys only shows out with our ugly toes out!
