Big oak tree and 30 yards of "brush". Did a bullet actually get past all that or did you just not see the turkey hunters? I wouldn't beat myself up to bad. Nobody got hurt and I have no doubt you will have a little better look around next time. As much shooting as your doing I am surprised you haven't built yourself a backstop someplace.

My favorite place to shoot is down by a local river. Spot floods a lot. Railroad built a berm about 12 feet tall to put their road on. Makes a great bullet stopper. Its pretty easy to tell when a train is coming. They blow that whistle at every county road crossing.

A few years ago i watched a show on tv(guns &ammo i think) it was on home defence but after seeing it i hoped it opened a few peoples eyes up(and not what they see in a movie) anyways they made a bunch of random walls standing about 10ft apart and fired different calibers basiclly to remind people that bullets dont stop after the first impact if i remember correctly it was only bird shot that was safe to use in a house and not put your family in danger from friendly fire i think buckshot travelled through two walls


shooter-10ft of travel-wall-10ft of travel-wall-10ft of travel-wall- etc

i know this isnt open range but still knowing what is behind your target and beyond is a must

Yes, yes, and yes! My Father instilled those words in us kids from day one. He's been gone 30+ years now and i still live by those rules.

Sounds like he is saying not needed leave it be.


If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom - go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
