    - Schuylkill County, PA- ;D

    The purpose of this post is to check the level of interest in a new Extreme Long Range Shooting Area. Range will be private and access will be limited to "members". Tactical classes will possibly be held here also.

    A small group of competitive long range shooters are considering setting up a range in Schuylkill County, PA. This range will allow shooting from 100 yards to 1,760 yards or 1 mile.

    Also provided will be grounds to practice tactical shooting with varying yardage and angles.

    Hanging steel, paper, and tannerite will be the primary targets at this location.

    If you are interested, shoot an email to Josh at JMTC1230@VERIZON.NET.

    I have no information to offer more than what you just read. I am simply looking for interest.

    Thank you.
