It really is the nicest range I've ever been on.  It is also the strictest range I've ever been on.  Which is fine by me, just means it's safe.  You can see that yellow line on the ground behind the benches, when the range master says to stop firing, you have to open your bolts etc, and everybody moves behind the yellow line. Then he walks to every station and visually checks each gun to make sure they are emptied.  If he has to tell you twice.. he's not nice!  lol

Pyro I really likethe openness of your range!  Mine runs along the side of a ravine and we shoot into the dead end, max 300 yds!
 
Scooter that is the most elaberate range I've ever seen!  Very nice!

Yes.  The picture distorts the amount of clearance.  The state of MI built this place and farmed out the design and I think the mgmt of the skeet part to ... someobody that is famous in those circles... i'll go look it up. 
 
The benches are nice that the seat swivels to accomodate left handed shooters, as you can tell by the table tops.
 
The only complaint I have is no long range.  100 yards, 50 and 25 is it.

I have been debating clearing my shooting lane out to at least 800 yds, maybe go ahead and go to 1000 but depends on the brush and woods I have to clear.  Only thing stopping me is the time to do it.

that range in wyoming where i lived had gongs all the way out to 500 yds, if you wanted to shoot targets further than that, you had a long walk up hill to get further. not bad for a town with 1000 people. nice thing is that its open to the public year round for free.

Nice range there Scooter, I wish we had one here. I have to use gravel pits and all but one of them has been locked up because of vandals, nice!
 
I would like a place to shoot out to 600, there are several ranches around that have em .. All are private.
Gotta Goooooooo!

Very few ranges exist that have a 1000yds availible.  I "WILL" have one, one day, and of course all you are welcome to come.

There are some employees here that play all day, and while it may appear that i do, there is always a time I am working, when i do work, I work deligiently, as in i get it done and do it right.  There is one guy who has a total of 3 mortgages in process right now, I have 14, his are constantly behind in working towards closing and he has even delayed closing several times..  I work hard, when i work, i just have plenty of time to goof off too
