Hey freebird63,
I live in Twin Falls. I've gone to the range at Blacks Creek but only to shoot their regular sighting range. The long range didn't seem to be open. Can you check around to find out when it is open and let me know? I know they have a full time Range Master out there from 8AM-5PM everyday and maybe have a Ph# listed in your phone book. They only charged me $6 for shooting and that included targets which I thought was real resonable but I'd really like to find out something about their long range facility. It looked like a thousand yard max and was pretty awesome.

Re: Idahoans sound off.

I have never shot out there, I usually go out into the desert into the military's playground. When they want there area back they buzz me with their blackhawks and I leave. I will have to go check out blacks creek. Most of the time I am too poor to pay to shoot at a range, if you don't mind stepping around a few rattlesnakes now and then. I have a nice spot where I have marked off to 1000 yards and have another spot where I think I can safely shoot to a mile.

Re: Idahoans sound off.

freebird63,
I'm in the process of building a long range target that will automatically reset itself after being hit. I was only able to afford a scrap piece of 1/2" AP400 that is a square foot. Would have liked to have got a little bigger piece, but this will have to do for now. I, hopefully, will have it finished in the next couple of weeks. I must admit that my welding skills are somewhat questionable. I guess you do what you can while you can. Doesn't it cost you more in fuel to drive that far out than the range would cost? The cost of fuel is getting so damn high again it's limiting my forries out shooting chucks to closer places that aren't nearly as productive. I could probably go less and shoot more but I wouldn't be able to get away from the warden as much, and that's worth a bunch!

Ya but where I shoot no one bothers me, unless its the military wanting their playground back. Do you know how irratating it is to have people drive right through where your shooting. Its nice and peaceful out there.

Re: Idahoans sound off.

Can any of you Idahoans suggest a location for some long range shots around the southwest area, say up to 750 yards. I have some long range pistols that need excersizing. I just don't know where to go legally.

Or, you could just head out into the desert. Lots of space.
