Rebuilding the range backstop
Doing some much needed repairs to my backstop. The rear wall railroad ties are getting chewed up. I am making it deeper so I can add more dirt to absorb the impacts instead of the ties in case of a miss. A must for rifle rounds. You may think it is an overkill but better safe than sorry.
Very very nice range and I like the roof to prevent over the berm flyers. Peace To All!
Nice improvement on the shooting back stop! Getting harder to shoot close in around Las Vegas anymore. Nothing political just a function of population. When I first moved here almost 22 years ago the population was around 500,000. Clark County is now at 2,300,000 and still growing! Sadly it's mostly leftest Californians that have moved here. They leave the liberal shit hole they voted for and paradoxically they are incrementally trying to recreate it here! Wish I had enough property and in an area like yours to shoot out my back door. My wife and I are willing to bug out but we got hammered pretty good when the real estate market collapsed back in 2008. We bought our $500K house in 2005 putting half down to keep the monthly low. We had plans of downsizing and making a little after about ten years with more property and less house. We saw the market turning downward a little when we bought but had no idea how bad it was going to get. Well, here we are 12 years after the market tanked and still not in a position to sell. Las Vegas really got hit hard! Don't want to sound like a whiner as we do have a nice house and so far both myself and wife are in good health with plenty more to be thankful for... just things not going according to plan, LOL! Sorry about the rant!
I wish I had a personal private range again like I used to. Mine was not as sophisticated or as expensive as yours, just one big dirt berm that was the dirt pile dug up on one side of a big garbage pit. I pay a whole lot each year for range membership. Thanks for sharing.
