    That is a beautiful place to shoot. Shooting North I guess and grass. We don't have grass on our range here in San Angelo but we do have wind.

    It’s not grass as of yet. It’s that green stuff impregnated with seed that they spray on to facilitate rapid growth.

    We are in the target frame planning stage now. The fact that we don’t want anything metallic on the frames presents a little bit of a challenge.

    An update

    The dirt work is complete. Grass has been seeded and the rye grass is showing up in places. The bermuda that was also seeded probably won't be coming up until later in the spring. HOPEFULLY we can get it all growing and have green pretty much everywhere by Summer.

    Several of us built and installed backers today -- 200 yd, 100 yd (movable), and 50 yd ones. We had to deferr on the 25-yd backers to see how high they needed to be, waiting on the installation of the 50-yd backers.

    Pics are attached. I'm not sure when the range will be re-opened -- hopefully really soon. It looks a lot different, as those of you who have been there can see.

    We were out today, just to check on some things. The club President said,......””try it out”.

    So Ed Bernabeo, Jim Moore, and I shot most of rhe afternoon.

    We have a very nice range now. The Burms meet all of the latest height requirements to insure bullet containment.

    are the 200 yard backers on a different trajectory than the 100? meaning.... are you hitting the 200 yard backers while shooting at the 100 yard?

    Yes. There is no way to avoid it. We have to have the 100 yard backers at least 70 inches above ground in order for bullets not to hit the ground in front of the Burm. The only way to keep the bullets from not contacting the 200 yard target frames would be to make the 200 yard frames 8 feet tall, making target changing a real chore.

    We do have the 100 yard frames situated so bullets will not strike the 8x8 wood poles that the frames are mounted on. Of course, some will, but our main goal is bullet containment.

    Lift the front/back frames (those that don't have targets) and lay 'em on the ground?
