    What's the one target you wish your range had that it currently does not? The answers to this are usually pretty interesting.

    A shoot and see type target that doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

    My range is in my backyard, so if there is a target that I wish were there, I either craft it or buy it. :)

    Well, let's see:
    • Shade
    • Something more than rocks to sit on.
    • Remotely resettable human silhoutte targets like we had on the range at Ft. Knox.
    • A 4x4 foot sandbox to the side of the shooter with removable screen to simplify brass recovery.

    Steel gongs. Lots of swinging steel gongs.

    I belong to 3 different ranges and what one doesn't have one of the others does. I just have to decide what kind of shooting I'm going to do that day or just go to all 3.:)

    A place to shoot rifles from field-expedient positions (e.g. not off of a bench).

    IDPA/USPSA/IPSC style targets. I have to bring my own paper versions.

    It's unfortunate that more ranges don't offer positions that allow people to shoot from prone, sitting, kneeling, standing and standing propped up with a support; you know, all the ways that you would actually have to shoot if you were trying to harvest a deer to make sure you had meat through the winter.

    I actually have that at the range on my farm because I don't have any kind of bench at all.

    A simulated tree stand so you could get used to being in an elevated position and strapped to the tree with a nylon harness.

    More room. I'm like GBE, I just make what I want. Just don't have the room to set it all up at home.

    I built a couple of these that can have you shooting from positions that you never even imagined before.

    That's a sweet bullet trap you have there!

    Air conditioning. I went to my indoor range yesterday to break in a new to me handgun. Was probably 90+ in the shooting lanes.
