    I wanna set up a real long range shoot. But

    Hello everyone

    Well the notion struck me that there are various shoots the go from 1000 up to one mile !! Well I want to upstage this and have a shoot that will wring out all the big boomers out there. I have access to the steel for a shoot of this size but haven't been able to find an area. So I am putting out a call to the shooters of Alberta to see if anyone has an area where we could hit 2400yds or more. I would think that someone will know of an area that this could happen . I have no problems doing the leg work to secure permission and ask people . I just need a direction to go. Something central Alberta would be best . But I would think that a shoot of this kind of distance would draw people from all over . So if anyone might have an idea of an area. Send me a pm and we can work on gettin it up and running .

    Come to BC...
    Sir Steve we can shoot mountain to mountain top.
    So much fun as the cross winds cause the bullet to be pushed around so much and with great glass it is so much fun watching them plink off the metal.

    I'm not trying to be the fun police, but I am curious.

    Can you go on crown land and do some long distance shooting at targets, lets say, in the foothills where nobody else is around? Reason I ask is because I have worked in places where literally, if you get injured, you will probably die. But, maybe I'm a pussy, but I just don't want to go out to those areas shooting in the rare occasion some officer happens to be going through the area or some helicopter spots me or something.

    I know I've found a few hill tops with spent casings on them, just not really sure the legality. Maybe I'm too paranoid.


    Either way, I'm interested if anyone knows a place. I know of a few that might work, just don't want to be the one that gets everyone in trouble. lol.

    I look for areas that are as contained as possible ! I have a couple spots where we shoot down a dead end lease road. Then we know that no trucks will be coming out , if there are cut lines crossing the road I will flag tape them with signs saying that we are shooting . It's just a matter of being smart and controlling as many variables as you can! As for being injured and dieing that could happen any place , any time

    I could get you 3800 yards I believe, though 3200 would be more practical. With another 1.5-3 km of empty space behind the target. The only stipulation is you have to do it before seeding, after harvest, or from an elevated stand with an elevated target. I also get to shoot whatever guns you bring I'm also in the middle of nowhere, Manitoba. Though WestJet now flies to Brandon, which is only 45 minutes from me!
