    ICAN where in western NY are you at....... I'm half way between Buffalo and Rochester NY. Let me know maybe we can get together and do some shoot. I have a spot that I think I can get 1000 yds I have to rage it when I get my new range finder tomarrow. We just need some warm weather and no wind to work with. Tim

    Im looking for a spot. I just recently joined the Niagara Sportsman Accos but they only go out to 300 yads :(. There is a range in Olean that goes out to 600 yards which isnt so bad. Let me know if you guys want to get together and do some shooting.

    I live just outside of Lockport. I am always looking for a place to shoot longer distances. I haven't joined a club here just because none around here go out very far.

    Wow this is an old thread one of my first I think. I have yet to find any range thats more than a farm feild in most cases. There are 2 ranges down on Honeoye lake that go 500 yards put they are private and need to be rented by the day. 1k in saryacuse and willamsport pa

    Yeah there aren't too many places in western new york. I was afraid of that. I guess our best bet is to get some private land haha. I will probably end up joining Olean gun club and for now stick with the 300 yard range at Niagara country sportsman. I just picked up a new .308 savage fcp-k and I waiting on Vortex PST glass for it. I definitely want to reach out to 1000 yards with it.
