1600 Yard range need your input please!!!

Ok. So I decided to get serious about a shooting range here in Northern Utah. And so it is!!!
I need your input because I have never been to a range just shoot here on my pace.. I never do things half a$$ed as my dad would say sooooo. I poured a 12x90 pad I'm enclosing 45 feet and just putting a roof and benches over the other 45...On the enclosed part there are 6 shooting stalls each 6 feet wide and one and the end 12 feet.. so please help me with the inside layout/input, shooting windows are 5 wide 4 high see pics. I also dug pits ever 100 yards out to 1600.. one small problem is the way the property lays out only the 12' stall can shoot 100 yards, all the rest start at 200

I got very sick last July and that's what prompted all this... Ya only get one life
I built 1 50x100 barn all enclosed and finished off half of it... Now 2 years after buying this victor lathe. Time to build my first gun..

Thats pretty darn cool! I agree with the "you only live once" idea. Looks like you're doing it right.

That's one hell of a Man Cave!!! Are you looking at having benches that will accommodate a right and left hand shooter, or for rt hand shooter and spotter? You have quite a spread. If you aren't careful, you are going to make lots of new friends
