Hi Mike Next time we get down your way we'll stop by and say Hi. Or maybe we can meet at Ben Avery and shoot a while.
Unfortunately, Galco is no longer open to the public, so you'd be saying hi to a locked door.
I don't usually shoot at Ben Avery because my shooting tends to be a bit more...active...than a square range likes. Feel up to some practical shooting in the desert?
(1) Sorry to hear about Galco's closed door policy. I talked to Gary @ Az Gunrunners this morning.Originally Posted by Mike Barham at Galco
(2) I like to use the benches and 200 yard range for chronographing and load developement. As for desert shooting, SURE!
Ah, yes, the rifle range at Ben Avery is good. I thought you were talking about pistol shooting (since it's a handgun forum). I actually live closer to the Rio Salado/Usery Pass range out in Mesa, so I usually go there to shoot long range.
I live near Williams so Avery is on the way into town for me. I'm also a Range Safety Officer there.
I was just in Vail earlier this week. How did you like that "little" rainstore they had?Originally Posted by David Hill
I'm here in the Phoenix area. Shoot a little of everything. I've shot IPSC since 1980. Like to go up north and shoot prarrie dogs. Have tended to load anything I can get my hands on and am using 7 or 8 presses at this time.
Welcome GL, glad you're here.
Where "up north" do you shoot prairie dogs?
Cascabel,AZ. north of Benson
How's Cascabel these days? We lived in Benson for a couple of years.
Greetings and Salutations.

Howdy Guys and Gals,
Don't know if anybody looks in here anymore but here goes:
I am in the Blue Ridge Happy Jack area 1/2 way between Payson and Flagstaff at 7000 ft. elevation.
I got tired of the Desert heat so retired up here.
I,ve been shooting hunter style for 50 + years. A friend got me involved in IPSC shooting and reloading this past summer and I love it. The only problem is I am now an "Old Fart" (TOF) and am too slow to get good scores in IPSC. That doesn't stop me from having fun though.
We get over by Happy Jack 3-4 times a year. We cut our Christmas Tree over by you last year, it's a beautiful over there. Does The Long Valley cafe still make a good breakfast?
My wife makes a better breakfast than the Long Valley cafe so I don't stop in there very often.
The Long Valley Gas Station and Store however are what we on the mountain refer to as "The Mall".
We have to go to The Mall at least once a week for entertainment.
I hope you were able to get one of those great Fir trees out on Dane or Hospital Ridge.
I'm in Prescott Valley
I'll be down there tomorrow, I'll wave when I go through.
Im from dolan springs
