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?
