HOW FAR DO YOU HAVE TO TRAVEL TO PRACTICE SHOOTING YOUR CB?

Post by amythntr » Mon Jul 15, 2019 10:09 am

.....I have always been curious of this question.

.....In The Peoples Republic of NJ at a minimum I have to travel about 30 minutes to a range that I belong to....and sometimes the archery range is closed to accommodate the youngin's who are taking free archery classes....If they range is closed I have to travel to a sanctioned TPRof NJ range but you must carry a valid hunting license in order to use the range....and I have been checked twice already!

I travel about 24 miles too, sometimes farther when I also go to the gun range outside. I can go to my in-laws about a mile away when they are not outside, or not home.

I’m great full that I live on an old farm. I go out the door and walk about 20yds and can start shooting. I can shoot between the buildings out to 125yds or along a field for about 300yds. It’s also very nice hunting land up here in Wisconsin! 👍

Outside. I've shot in the front and back yards. My preferred place is the back yard where I have a picnic table set up in the back corner next to my privacy fence. It is roughly 70 yards across the back so I can really stretch it out if I want to. It also helps to hug the fence when the dogs are outside. They go into hunt mode any time you shoulder a weapon so you end up with critters down range that want to help. :roll:

I'd have to travel a mile or so down the road if I wanted to shoot farther than 70 yards.

twenty minutes out the back door and up the mountain.
Can run them out over 100 up there.

Other place we often go is a Rancher Buddy's place - about 45 minutes away.
Same range distances.
For him just out the back door.
For us, it's fun with friends...

Cheers,
Nog
