I live out in the woods of middle Bama , range used to be off the back porch till the wife and dawgs complained .. I'll not pay to shoot unless I have to .. I have one range at a WMA forty five minutes away and another on Federal land about the same distance in the opposite direction .. They are both remote , and for some reason the one on the WMA attracts all the Rambo types , set up targets at twenty feet with the AR's and blast away a few hundred rounds in their battle gear , thinking they have really done something ... All they do is annoy others and leave a pile of brass on the ground .. At least they could leave some brass that I reload .. Now I have no issue with the black rifles , I want a 458 Socom truth be known .. Just the mentality of it all .. Crazy ramblins of the old guy ..

The range that I prefer is free to the public and is on BLM land. The same agency also built it. With a very long roof with numerous stations. Not attended so all users are on the "consideration" plan. Considerate of all there and when there is a lull in the shooting, the call goes up that it is ok to check targets, when done "the range is hot" is heard. I refuse to pay to shoot. If no public ranges were available, then it's simply a short trip out into the boonies to punch paper or whatever. Or just to walk around killing rocks, tree limbs, etc.
