I have frequently marveled at your use of the English language.

What’s the deal with landfill shooting anyway? When I was a kid (22 year old USMC vet) we used to drink beer and shoot rats at the dump with 22’s. Don’t think I’d try that with a 45-90 though…would skip the beers whilst shooting too, but back then I guess I knew better…

Now Jonny, remember, some people grew up privileged. Fancy shooting ranges, everything could be bought on the spot,

Poor souls never learned the fun of just going out and breaking bottles or whatever else you could prop up to blow away.

Appliance doors are the original "shoot -n-see" target. The way the paint and enamel flakes off is a great aid to long range spotting.

Sounds like LUKE has a problem with obtaining permission from his wife to, "play with the cool kids." That is perplexing. :?

The question now is, how do we break LUKE free from this perceived yoke of suppression he FEARs ? Fear is a reaction, courage is a decision.

Obviously, LUKE hails from Missouri, The Show Me State, just like it says on their license plates. Perhaps the solution LUKE is to SHOW HER? :wink:

You see LUKE, I-44, I-40 and I-17 will transport you from Missouri to Anthem, Arizona, and the Ben Avery Shooting Facility by ordinary automobile.

There, between April 1st through April 8th, 2025, you will find an aggregation of Long Range Black Powder Target Rifle shooters, the finest folks in the world assembled for the sole purpose of enjoying the pleasures of shooting their black powder target rifles at targets.

Be aware though that they do have their preferred pronouns and if you are not familiar them it could prove embarrassing for you. Some of their favorites that you should be familiar with are: Sharps, Remington, Swiss, grease groove, Winchester, paper patch (not so much), Starline, SPG, cross sticks, Kowa, Spotter. You have time to brush up on these subjects. And, these men in particular are virtual Choir Boys, paragons of personal morality and behavior, (with maybe a few exceptions), so you will fit right in. :wink:

Once your wife has personally experienced the Event called the Desert International she will want to accompany you in your sojourns among the cool kids. Trust me :mrgreen:

Well, CinCHome let me get a camper and the truck to pull it. Further conversations shall take place next year upon retirement. Orders shall be cut when the 1877 arrives.

I should be able to convince her that most of you are relatively harmless.

Pretty sure this years winner is from Florida. Might be some other east coast guys as well.

That's why the US Forest Service is dead set against shooting in the National Forest here. I am too after the amount of appliances - washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc - left in public picnic sites after having a couple hundred rounds pumped through them. Oh yeah and the broken bottles and shredded beer cans left in piles for some else to clean up... or somebody's kids to step on. And let's not forget the trash targets set up (and left) with no backstop behind them. Or the bullet holes in all the Forest Service road signs on the way up the mountain. A real testament to the maturity and ethics of shooters in a state that had proposed 9 anti-gun measures in the state legislature this spring. One of them was to ban outdoor shooting including on private land which could have meant we would lose our private land shooting range. Do what you want on your own land, but don't do this crap on public land then expect the anti-gun measures to be defeated. I know most of us don't do this kind of stupidity but obviously a lot of people are doing it. They need to be "counseled" to knock it off and shoot responsibly.

Which has nothing to do with our conversation here.
Slobs are gonna be slobs regardless of what they use for targets. I see it all the time at the shooting ranges.

I'm in charge of the "public land" I shoot on and clean up after myself regardless of what my target is.

Sooner or later, someone gets offended at anything. Can't even tease Semtav about his landfill shooting prowess. The Out of Context Quote has become the death of public discourse.
