Re: 1000 yds + in SW PA

Hey guys, Also if you can. Can you send a list of people to me you think would be interested in this club? You dont have to send full names and contact info if you dont want to. But i would like to start getting an idea of the number of people that might be interested in this. The property where the place is is near Clarksville, PA. Off Rt 88. Which is the continuing road from the new 43 road. I will take some pictures soon and post so you got an idea of the layout.

So just message me, or email me at tedy4545@hotmail.com

Thanks everybody, looking forward to possibly shooting with you guys in the future.

Ted

Ted, Clarksville is close to me and my range is getting messed up by drilling and I'm always looking for a place to hold schools. My phone # is on The Best of the West website under shooting schools . Also know quite a few in this area that are looking for a place to shoot.

Re: 1000 yds + in SW PA

I don't mean to be a downer but there's a whole lot involved with building a 1000 yard range all of which adds up to some serious costs. Everything from legal advice to potential platt approvals to public comments, and then there is the construction (baffling and backdrops and shooting stations, etc) followed by the technical stuff (targets, shooting platforms, etc). I watched this take place at a range which opened nearby.

Here's a suggestion which might save some $$$. Contact the NRA and see if you can obtain some freebie advice on what's involved for a private range including legal issues, etc.

Best of luck.

Re: 1000 yds + in SW PA

If you decide that the hoops to open up a "range" are to much of a P.I.T.A. and just want to set it up to have a few people over to do a bit of gong ringing on private land over some burgers ect. Now that sounds like a good time to me. I am in either way....
I can bring a 4x4 quad to run things out to distance and back.........

Hmmmm..... good idea Armored Transport. I think this spring I will organize a shoot with a cookout. That way everybody can see the layout, have some fun shooting, and we can brainstorm ideas for the place. Maybe even have a little competition. I am willing to buy the food and drinks in exchange for the free advice from everyone . I will start another thread when I figure out the date and time. In the meantime feel free to give suggestion as to what targets, competitions, or anything else we can have at the shoot.
