Welcome to the Range

Before I get cranking on any range reports, I thought you might like to see the range.

Welcome to the range

I know, it’s not much. But it literally is my back yard. That’s one of the pros of country living – you can walk out your back door and shoot all day. Here in the Midwest, things are nice and flat. And since my closest neighbor is a mile away, I can safely shoot up to 300 yards on my property.

As you can see in the above photo, there is a fixed target area towards the back of the property. I also have a few different freestanding target frames that can be used in conjunction with the high-tech bench to efficiently shoot at any ranges <300 yards.

Yes, I know, the bench sucks.

In case you didn’t notice, it’s just a piece of countertop atop a couple of stout sawhorses. I have plans drawn up to build a new portable bench, but it’s going to have to wait for some warmer weather. In the meantime, this actually works just fine, and is surprisingly solid.
