Next spring would be great . Do you think you could meet some of the out of towners at the air port ? This would save on having to rent a car for 3 days . You could charge for pick up and gas and your time of course. but it would still probably save guys like me in the end , compared to rental on a vehicle. I would really like to meet you and the fellas on this site in person. I would be happy with 2 steel gongs one at a mile and one at 1000 or so. Would you be helping the inexperienced shooters like my self or would we need 2 be prepaired to do all of the wind reading and field conditions ourselves ? In short would it be like a shooting school in a round about way ?

Jeff...

I'd be very interested in something along those lines, just near enough to some accomodations where after a few days, the stink could be removed via shower..........

There are virtually no places around here where you can 'exercise' a 338 lapua or a 50 Barrett without undue restraints and concerns. Possible, but hard to accomplish. I have access off the back deck in the excess of a mile sight distance but the land is flat and past that is population so a wayward projectile could be an issue.

Besides, we can talk shop.

I can fly or drive, preferrably drive (I dislike TSA and checking firearms). Again my issue is an ocassional 'flush, fill and fragarance'. After about 3 days, I'm not good company (unless you are upwind.......)

Ya know if we do it right you might be drawing some bear in by the end of a shoot and some of us could fill a spring bear tag

Re: Any Interest in a Long Range Shooting Camp?

i could set something like this up as well if i could get 6 guys that would want to do it. I have two locations one is a for sure thing. It can sleep 6 i can set up targets out to 2000yrd as i have a 2000yrd range where i do my shooting. i also have a 2009 crew cab hunting truck to ride around in. This location is in south Texas the ranch is 6000ac
The second location is in west Texas and is 30,000ac of west Texas desert the lodge sets at 6000' its nice and cool up there. its a true mansion its around 10,000 SQ feet 6 bed room and was built in 1913 by one of the largest cattlemen in west Texas at that time. my friend just spent over 1.5million rebuilding it after he bought the ranch. I could have all the meals cooked and have the hunting truck to ride around in as well. there is a lot place to shoot as for as you would want to as well up/down hill across canyons i could set up a bunch of targets and there is tons of rocks to shoot. you could shoot coyotes on both places.
