|50, 100 and 250 yard lanes|
I hope this becomes a regular event because this facility was excellent!
We met at the Peacemaker National Training Center in Inwood West Virginia. This is a new facility that has recently opened this year. It has several ranges for handgun, shotgun and rifle at various distances all the way out to 1000 yards. The staff was very friendly and helpful and were obviously shooting enthusiasts themselves.
The range we were set up on had a handgun range and rifle ranges of 50, 100 and 250 yards. It was a beautiful sunny day but a bit cold. Everything was frosted when we arrived. There was lots of rifle stations for everyone. I ended up sending over 800 rounds down range during the day. Mostly .22LR because I was airing out my new Ruger 25 round mags (more on that later).
We all were enjoying ringing the steel target out at 250. Old NFO brought some more of his sweet gear. His sniper rifle had the best scope and trigger I have ever used. I never missed using it. I also was amazed by the fact that I rang 250 yard steel, 4 out of 4 times, with the iron sights on T-Bolts Sweet M1A. I even managed to hit it with my Cx4 carbine and my Ruger 10/22 with some help from a spotter. It was big damn fun.
