    I'm sure this has been done before, but this forum moves quick and some may not have seen it.

    I'm currently working on my range.  I've always had places to shoot, but getting squared up on a range here after years of living here.

    I've got 100 yards carved out, but the main part of the range is about 50 yards.  I use it for everything from airgun to pistol, centerfire and rimfire rifle and bow… havent set up my archery targets yet, but will soon.  Even got a throwing knife/hatchet target up.   It's right outside my knife shop so if the weather is crap, I can see most of the targets from inside my shop.  It's all a work in progress. 

    My bench for now is an old school desk I modified.

    Edit.. trying to add pics. Keep getting an error

    Nothing fancy here, but not too shabby either. 
    Really like that knife target, may steal idea. 

    Main shooting area, Have about 1/4 acre out back. 


    Main Rodent Attraction & Servicing area. I call them “Customers”

    Small portable target. Mainly used at shorter distances & zeroing new scopes, or travels etc. 

    Larger tire mulch target. Usually stays at 30 to 33yards max. this is as far as I can shoot in my backyard, so I sight in here before pesting just in case gun is off.

    @shambozzie, that is a sweet looking range you have. Very nice setting and shooting from the deck makes it nicer still.

    The main take away is to recognize that you are blessed if you have a home range… I feel very lucky to be able to shoot casually out to 70 yards or more on my property.

    @L.Leon    You are correct, sir!  

    All the ranges look great.  It was actually an earlier pic of Shams range that got me off my tail to start fixing mine up a bit.  I've still not quite figured out how to put the stream running through it..haha

    Hoping to find some more targets at the Hickory show this year.  Need to set up my archery stuff as well and throw up a 3D target out there.

    Thanks all for sharing!

    Ya'll have some really nice home ranges to shoot at. I'm happy with mine, but I will tell you what, nothing like the 5 acres I used to have. Nothing ever, even then, as beautiful as Shambozzie or as spacious as Fuzz. I may be able to squeeze 40 yards in my Suburban home, but would have probably never discovered Modern Airguns if it had not been for living where I do now. Heck, I get a little Jelly when I see some of the guys that can shoot in their basements, I don't even have that these days. So, yeah, I feel Lucky and Blessed to have my 30 yard range.

    Yes, I feel blessed too Christian. I used to have the beautiful brick home with pond in the backyard. But the home owners association pretty much ruined everything for me. Not to mention the divorce? LOL

    We live in a simple 16×60 singlewide mobile home on three 0.75 acre lots and I'm happier here than anywhere I've ever lived in my life. Location is everything to me. Hundreds of acres of forestry service timberland behind us, and 30 or 40 acres of farmland across the street.

    The place I had before was gorgeous though!

    Hey shambozzie!  Did you create that yard yourself, or did you buy your place from a Hobbit?  Beautiful!

    Okay I'll admit SHAMs set up is pretty.
    But I'm with FUSS all the way! I mean his shooting range has BACON !!!!!!!!!!

    And we all know the only thing that can make airguns any better is BACON 😊

    But seriously, they all are great if you have the ability to step outside your back door and plink.

    My home. We just moved here last autumn, so the shooting range is not yet finished (it's winter here in Finland). The max range on this plot is 160 meters (174 yards), but currently I have only 102 meters range (111 yards) from my front door.
