Sorry folks, park’s closed………………

The Moose out front should have told you:

I am very late with posting this.  The month of December found me being not very well.

The entire month of October was wet and cold and it wasn’t until the end of November when I was able to help finish closing up my brother’s outdoor pistol range.

Both sides are closed off with dirt filled in.  The logs in front are about 18 inches thick and we really only shoot 9mm and 22lr  so as long as were are on target, there shouldn’t be any worry about stray rounds.  Also cut the ears off the tops of the telephone pole to neaten that up.

My brother just can’t stop adding things.  As it was, we would have to carry out a small fold up table to put our guns and supplies on and to reload at.  Here we have added what will be a small shed like building that will have a waist high shelf in the front and will put a roof on it in the spring and maybe close up the bottom third.

I think the front of the shed is 45 feet from the backstop.  My brother wants to put targets up at 25-35 feet rather that directly on the backstop.  Some good and bad in doing it this way.  Will also get another couple of loads of the crushed blacktop and put that in all the way to the shed.

This is how it looked earlier in the summer.  We finally cleaned the mess away on the left
