    The BLM lands are currently closed due to fire restrictions! COntact the Phoenix or Yuma offices for information as to any areas open for shooting...

    Correction to directions. skip step 9. That is to a backup site which is sometimes closed. Instead of step 9, go straight back on 83rd until you reach the hills.

      Great directions Marc. I hope to get out Saturday or Sunday. Depends on who I can put together for it. I hear that we might have some rain this Saturday. That would be the perfect opportunity to shoot ammo that I can't shoot at a range. If you're (or anyone else reading this thread) interested in going out Saturday am, met me know.

    I'm wondering if anyone can share directions to this site. I am looking like crazy for a place to shoot without some of the restrictions at Rio Salado. If you have directions and can share, please send to:

      Whoops

  • Charley

    Sending an E-mail to everyone that has RSVP'd; ping me a reply so I know you received it... A normal car can get there, soem soft sand near the shoot area not deep, road is wide and not real rough. I will have my handheld walkie talkie use channel 15 if you have one. Cell phone is spotty.

    January 8, 2014

    • Daryl

      Charley, I got mine. My spam filter grabbed it but I got it. Looking forward to the shoot. The radio channel 15, is that a CB channel or a FRS channel 15? I got the FRS radios..... Daryl

      Thank you, Charley. I received my e-mail.\

    I'm a new member. So does anyone have GPS coordinates of the location? Also, if you're in the West Valley and you're interested in carpooling, then contact me.

    January 6, 2014

    • TJ

      Thanks, Rod. I don't drive an SUV/truck. Do you think a normal car would get stuck or have problems?

      January 8, 2014

    • Rod R.

      It's all dirt road off of 238. Last time I was there it had rained and were some deep ruts to navigate around. Road maintenance appeared to be hit and miss. May be better now. Probably doable if your car's clearance isn't too low.

      January 8, 2014

  • Jeff

    New member, i'm going to try and make it. I will RSVP by Friday.

    January 6, 2014

    I am interested in carpooling. I live near Bell Rd and Tatum 85032. Message me if interested.

    Yes we will post signs; It is easy to get to. I will send out detailed info as we approach 1/11/14

    December 30, 2013

  • Greg M.

    I assume you'll have signs on 238 pointing to the road we need to turn on to, right? Still cannot commit, no grandson yet, he's stubborn.

    Can't this time

    December 23, 2013

  • Andy N.

    Sorry you changed the date. I think everyone would have liked the toys I made that were used at the 2For. With the change in date I need to pass.

    December 22, 2013

  • Ron S.

    looks like fun and I want o come but can't commit at this time till time is closer

    December 21, 2013

  • Charley

    Just got notification my sister will be in town January 4th, haven't seen her in several years! Changed the date to January 11th! Hope noone has to cancel and affords others to attend...

    December 21, 2013

  • Andy N.

    I'm a maybe for now, but leaning on going. If I can make it, I will be bringing the metal targets used at the 2for handgun Shoot-Out. I like the idea of going to new places and meeting new people, but from where I live it means having to have my passport checked more than once. What's a little (long) drive to have fun...

    looking forward to meeting everyone

    December 21, 2013

  • JasonC

    Maybe. The location is an hour and 15 minute drive for me...

    December 21, 2013

  • Greg M.

    Cannot commit at this time. Have a grandson due anytime now in another State and we are always there for all the grand children's births. We're hoping he comes tonight so she can be home for Christmas but......

    I have a small steel spinner I've been anxious to try out. I need to remind myself to find the note I wrote reminding myself to buy spray paint to touch up the spinner.

    December 21, 2013

  • Charley

    Been out of touch for a long while; back in the main stream hope all are well and prospering. Hope you can make January 4...
