    No more golfballs, no more clays on the berms. Half the fun (for a lot of us) was popping golfballs and clays. More fun than punching paper, but the new RO says it's too 'dangerous', even @ 50 or 100yds. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacement targets?

    Eggs.

    Better tell the range master to buy some roach spray though.

    You can get a really thin steel trashcan from Target for about... seven bucks that's more fun than a barrel of monkeys to shoot (man, that sounds messed up). Save all your 20 oz. soda bottles, fill them with water. They explode real good.

    Lollipops / Suckers

    They are about the size of a golf ball and the RO can't be worried that they will go anywhat the way a golf ball might.

    Thay are even cheap and easy to find in bulk this time of year.

    Crackers are an option, small and act well.

    Would ask why the change though?

    If the RO thinks popping clays is dangerous, then that rules out vanilla wafers and lollipops. Someone could lose an eye. :rolleyes:

    The range I went to had "used bowling pins". These are mostly wood with some sort of thin plastic covering. Is wood legal?

    Find out who the R.O.'s boss is - popping clays on a berm at 100 yards is dangerous? LMAO...

    Oh, and I second the ping pong balls. You can get real creative and put a small hole in them...fill them with baby powder...then reseal it with tape.

    Lots of fun when you hit it!

    :confused: I don't get it. At my club, the prez will even bust a clay on occassion. Our range rules are against cans and plastic jugs/bottles/cartons just because not everybody will clean up their crap. But clays? This club shoots too much trap to bitch about 100yd clays with rifles.

    I know the reason...

    And I'm guessing not a lot of other folks here go to The Creek...

    You know all those tracers you see ricocheting all over creation? Clue bat #1: The tracers are the only ones that are lit up... There's a whole buncha stuff bouncing around that people don't see...

    If the berms are not steep enough, you could get arounds going over 'em. Not a good thing.

    I agree with the RO.

    I feel your pain amigo!

    My d***** RO is the SAME way. First he tells me to"watch my muzzle" (whatever that means!)) Then he gets mad when I'm shooting while others are down range! I'm not shooting at them-just near them!!

    The last straw was when he freaked over me looking down my barrel! How the h*** do I know if it's loaded unless I look!

    Who needs him and his silly "range" anyway! Besides the watermelons are better at Walmart anyway.

    Now.....wheres my Lorcin......

    Clay pigeon shooting is dangerous? I can kinda see this with golfballs, but... ?

    Sounds more as if they want to limit the mess.

    I hear ya, man. My local range now explicitly bans tracers because of a minor "incident" I caused. SO uptight!

    That, and they INSIST I wear pants. Drat. :evil:
