So it seems.   I really need to get to the rifle range.  The problem I have is that either range is at least an hour’s drive.  Sometimes there is a significant wait for a shooting position to open up.  And the ranges I can use only allow shooting from a bench rest.  That is fine for sighting in, but as for serious practice from various shooting positions, it is worthless.  I can’t shoot prone, kneeling “rice-paddy prone” or sitting from those ranges.

Years ago, my family owned rural property that packed up to a large hill/small mountain.  My brothers and I set up an informal range that had distances marked out to 300 meters.  We got to be right handy with our rifles.

How I miss it, now.
