Who has their own range at home?

I have had an archery range for 6 years but I have been tired of lugging a lot of my AR-500 steel targets.

I have a Texas Star and Dueling Tree which are quite heavy and cumbersome for lifting in and out of the car.

I checked with local laws and I have a bit of land so I set up my own range.

I have a Last Stands Target stand that has several sized AR-500 plates. The dueling tree which can be transported since itís not too heavy (55 lbs). The Texas Star which would not be fun lugging to the range and calling for a cold range every other minute. I have a few other target systems such as Arntzen targets but Iím debating just bring those to the range versus keeping them outside.

Anyone else have their own range? I was inspired by Hickok45.

My "Own" range? Well, not really, but as it's BLM land, it's 'sort of' mine.

Only a few minutes from the house on BLM land (I'm a taxpayer, so it's 'mine'.) Lug the steel and stands out of the truck, and I'm in business. Tailgate for a loading bench, no rangemaster, no range fools to deal with, no kid next to me with an AK spewing brass either.

And all the brass left on the ground is mine!

Not as nice or handy as yours, but it's what I've got, and I'm very thankful for it. I really don't know how I handled living in the city for as long as I did. Been here 42 years now, and I'll most likely be planted here as well......near 'my' range.

We have family property about 6 miles away- 52 acres that is bordered on 3 sides by national forest. I go there to shoot- there is a nice clearing, with a clear ridge on one side. It is very isolated, so the noise bothers no one, and it is safe.

I just received my Rimfire dueling tree. Man that is some serious fun.

I donít leave the Texas Star paddles outside. Itís useless without them.

We do. I can shoot out to only 85yds but have 8 plates at various yardages and a few target holders so it works.

Yup, 0 to 100 yards right next to my barn..
Have a berm but not really needed as there's 1000 yards of woods behind it.

Wow, you guys must be related to Hickok45. I live in Cali where just possessing a live round requires that I register that round with ATF, CIA, NSA, NASA, The POPE, notify the authorities about my intentions with that round, make sure that it wont harm the environment, also the report can't be more that 88DB's loud. I have to collect the smoke, lest I offend those at the NOAA. and I must collect my brass for recycling. So I wish I could have my own range. but because there are regulations against shooting the soil ( I my injure a rock), I can't.
