    So not a huge range but fairly nicely setup. The public hours are different so if you end up out this way look them up before you go.

    Covered area is pretty large and concrete shooting benches are available at most stations. There is also an area with a simple platform to stand at. Paper targets can be setup out to about 100 yards and they have steel swingers setup at about 100 yards out to 600 yards.

    Cost was 6.00 per person and small 10 ring targets about 12" square were 5 for a dollar. The way they had targets setup was great though and may be something worth copying. I didn't get a picture but basically they set a couple pieces of steel rectangular tubing in concrete with a section of telephone pole in front of it and a small berm to pervert ricochet for someone with less experience. 2×2 frames were then made up to staple the targets to.

    Ended up leaving early as when there is heavy rain/lightning near by they shut down. We were stopped for about 20 mins or so at one point and then we're shooting till it started again and they called it for the day.

    If someone ends up it around tombstone or Sierra Vista and wants to go shoot a little I think it's worth heading over especially if you want to try a little long range shooting.

    Sounds great! And, that sounds plenty cheap!
