It has been my experience that you do not see most of those kind if you go to the 300 and up ranges.

Unfortunately, here in Illinois, if you are lucky enough to have a 300 yard range, the 100 yard benchs are usually only a few feet away!

Re: My time to bitch

I have had that happen on occasion. Good news is that they usually blow through their ammo pretty quick. I have also found that it isn't that they are inconsiderate, but they don't know any better. Depending on what my shooting plan was, I either wait them out, practice shooting with a distraction, or explain to them that I'm trying to shoot for groups and ask them to give me 10-15 minutes. Most always, they are pretty good about it. I save my hatred for the likes of Diane Frankenstein!.

Its great when people just add a little courtasy to the moment. We had just set our targets out to shoot to 750 yards @ the local State land public spot.When we turned around there was a guy parked @ 500 yards=right in the dang way! When we got to his truck he was just getting done setting up 150 yard targets in a different canyon 90 degrees to where we planned to shoot=No problem, I borrowed him my rangefinder so he could set his bench up 100 yards from his targets and we set up with his truck between our muzzles and his bench. Then after makeing sure he had ear protection on we proceeded to shoot to 500 yards instead of 750. He warned us he was going to be shooting his 340 and we laughed as we put the 338Edge on the hood=He got done what he was looking to do and we practiced at 500 for a few rounds then went to 1250 on some rocks.
The biggest bitch I have with some of the blasters is they have a bad habit of bringing a TV,washer,dryer or whatever out=shooting the heck out of it and leaving it for me to take to the dump!
I used to have a neighbor that sold realestate, and she was always giving me old signs to use as targets. 3/4's of the time I was out shooting guys would show up, and I'd just let them have the sign bracket. Probably gave a hundred of them away! I hate the guys that bring cans and glass bottles, and leave their trash for somebody else to pick up.

This is not anything to do about our elected officials it is about free targets.I park old vecheiles,used machinery,washing machines,dryers,stoves,ect,and shoot them to.... ,then crush them with my Cat and haul them to the dump,but I have a farm,so I am lucky.
