I was wondering how I missed this place since it's just around the corner from me and I realized that it just opened. I'll have to give it a try.

I made it out there a little over a week ago. I will be going back. It is only 5 miles from my daughter's house. :coolgleamA:

Seen this the other day. Great to have a range in the area again since they closed the old Ponderosa Range on Garrett Rd. Have to go try it out I only live about 2 miles from it. I remember back in the high school days they use to call Van Rd Monster Rd and there where rumors that a GoatMan lived down there. :shock: Hope to get by there soon. And good luck on the new range.

GoatMan, lol, I completely forgot about that until now. I recall being in highschool going out there, I new it looked familiar!

It's a great range with lots of room, I hope it's here to stay. :thumbs2:

I have met Darrel and Angelo through work. Angelo is quite a character and Darrel's a Ford guy, but nice enough guys other then that. ;-) Haven't shot at the range yet its a drive for us, but worth it to support some good guys.

backstops are higher and better formed now -- been a lot of updates and additions made out there -- behind is nothing but woods for long long ways then the river but it is way down and much lower level
