Nice job! What’s not to like about it? Shaded pavilion, good berm—your daughter is a lucky woman.

Nice range. Nothing better than plinking a few (hundred) rounds with friends and family.
In that first pic, it looks like there is a great pile of scrap wood to be sorted through…..or burned!

Nice range set up there Dudley.Having a range right on your own property is a lot more convenient.I like the padded rest idea, and the single rear post idea is smart to avoid obstructions.Good job my friend.

Very nice range, and since I also spend some time with my beautiful lady trying to put little round holes inthe center of targets, I appreciate having it easily available. I bought a set of dueling targets 3 years agoand while a little beat up, it still is a lot of fun.l

Looks great, but you’ll probably get fewer unannounced neighbor drop-bys. You may want to check with NRA or other shooting sports organization for a plan drawing of recommended range dimensions. They have recommendations on berm height, shooting bench field of view, dimensions of a shooting station for all lpositions and a list of range commands. I shoot mostly small bore but practice with the hand cannon (44 Mag) before big game season. Be safe and chart your improvement. Good luck, spj.

County sheriff came out and approved it which is not necessary but when neighbors call in they will be told that we are legal and safe.

Had a contest going at Sunday’s shoot. Taped a token about the size of a half dollar. we all put a buck in the pot and you get one shot at it. If none hits on the first round, we start over. A gal that has only fired a firearm twice in her life was shooting my firearm. She said to me, put the lucky bullet in it. I said it’s in there. Don’t ya know she blasted the coin and we haven’t found it yet. We all had a good laugh.

Great range, thanks for sharing

It is the way with some new shooters, they are not nervous and follow directions, line up the sights andgently squeeze the trigger. I have to tell myself to go back to the basics every now and then to improvemy score.

Nice set up. Not often you see some one that has their own shooting range.
