Old Guy:  Do it long enough and you get really good at it.

Rifleman:  Sacramento:  Four Ought Nine
Full Distance:  Red Bluff:  What year was that?
Pistoleer:  Hat Creek:  Three Twenty One

Make yourselves good scouts and good rifle shots in order to protect the women and children of your country if it should ever become necessary.

The presence of the two red sports cars, which have only co-existed with the green Appleseed trailer on that singular weekend.  (3Huzzas and ScoutCamper)

At a couple of ranges I frequent we've worn the grass so well there's a permanent firing line that can be seen from space. Appleseed is making an impact!

That's an interesting range layout - there's a parking lot and another shooting bay directly behind the target berm of a rifle bay?  Don't believe I've ever seen that before.

Yep, what's back there is 'Cowboy Town' for the SASS types.  You can often hear them plinking away during the AS ceasefires.  It's a tall berm in between, and we're required to post targets all the way downrange against it.

There is a private range in Kentucky where a public road is about 50 yards to the right of, and perpendicular to, the firing line.  The only thing between the rifles and the cars on the road is a guardrail.  I have not scheduled a shoot there in a couple years.
