    I did about 3 years ago. I think we gave them a heads up when we paid.
    It was a Saturday morning and there were several spectators gathered around. [​IMG]

    Outside of making a lot of obnoxious noise, why on Earth would you shoot a .50BMG at Banner?

    It was 100 yard rifle range back then. Not much of a walk to tape your targets and you just multiply your group size by 5 to get a normal distance result.

    That is a 500 yd minimum gun. Chip shot at that range.
    I can see wanting to shoot it at any distance. It's a hoot. I hope everyone was double muff and plugged.

    I've heard them there before a few times from the trap range to the west.

    off topic: Rilfes can shoot better or worse at increased distances. That's not a great way for accurate results btw... because it groups well at 100 doesn't mean anything at 500. I just wanted to point that out incase a new shooter saw that...

    FoulBore Precision in Ninekah has steel out to 1360yds. I believe you can shoot there with a 338lp or up from 500yds(minimum) and up. its cash only btw, kids 16 & under are free.
