What we're about

Improvised target shooting safely in the Butcher Jones area in the Tonto National Forest (at Saguaro Lake) for starters.

Firearms safety training, marksmanship, discipline & meditation for young and old.

The intent for this group is to teach "IRL" marksmanship skills to any wishing to strengthen the mind and body. "Ears and eyes" protection required. Mostly .223, airguns, bow and arrow, nothing crazy, however all guns are loud.

We also experiment (safely) with "backyard ballistics". I have a custom made potato cannon that is pure fun to show off and shoot. The DIY aspect of this group could revolve around making cannons and spudguns, if there is interest of course.
