2000yd exploding targets

Hi all,

I passed over an article that spoke of a long range shoot (USA) with targets rigged to dynamite.

I can't track it down now,

Has anyone got any hints for me? A link would be fantastic.

It looked like a great shoot.

Try looking up Gateway Dynamite shoot, Gateway Colorado it's the only one I know of. Having been a couple of times I can highly recommend it. Great folks having a good time. Targets to 1000 yards. I'd go every time but it's a bit of a drive, but it looks like a lot farther for you! LOL

Re: 2000yd exploding targets

I hear your gun laws can be a bit restrictive, how accessible is dynamite for the average Australian citizen?

Re: 2000yd exploding targets

I'm not sure if our laws would allow it.

Even if they do allow there are always those that will protest and portray us as crazy rednecks, or worse.

Our gun laws are pretty tight. All require registration and "permission to aquire".

Pistols are very much restricted. You need to be an "active" club member. "Active" usually means one shoot per month.

Semi-autos and pump shotguns (but not pump rifles) are very difficult to get. That does not bother me much. Years back when I had a few semi autos they stayed locked up for the most part. I like my bolt actions.

New South Wales has just passed legislation restricting licensed gun owners ammo purchases. You can only buy ammo for the calibres you have registered.

The "thinking" behind this is to make it harder for owners of illegal guns to get ammo. Given that most illegal guns are standard calibres I can't see this having any effect at all.

Re: 2000yd exploding targets

Restricting ammo sales to only registered calibers of the licensed shooter should stop all crime.

Imagine how impossible it will become for the baddies to get hold of .22, 9mm, ,223 and 12 guage.

All the exotic chamberings that illegally held guns typically come in.

No IQ test for politicians, unfortunately.
