I live right down the road from Rio. HP ranges goes to 500m. Just picked up an FNAR and look forward to lots of fun. Not sure I like the .308 cartridge, I'm an old fart and can't take too much on my shoulder, so shooting sessions will be short.
Hello Az. New member just south of you in Casa Grande, dont get to the ranges much as Im lucky to have a shooting lane right here at my house. Any 5.7 related chatter please let me know, also theres a new gun store in Arizona City with some great prices on FNs and allot more.
Check your area there. Some of that area is inside of the City of Peoria and some is within the Lake Pleasant park and both Peoria PD and MCSO take a no tolerance approach to shooting in the city and inside of the park.
Good to see Arizona is present and accounted for on site.
blueiron is correct on the Lake Pleasent Area, west of Castle Hot Springs Rd. was annexed by Peoria some time ago and they have beefed up patrols due to the jackazz shoots who trash the desert. There is private property along with BLM trail systems in the area where I have found shooter firing into the wash as downrange.
As much as I enjoy the BA Range, some times a private set up in the desert is nice but I always pack in and pack out!
