Rifle Range Picnic Shelter Construction

Shelter Construction Update

As I write this, it’s 5am. And later today, I will be hitting the range to review the final phase of the new shelter construction. 

Initially it was spec’d out to be 14’x16’. But after some of the footprint was laid out, we decided to expand it to 14’x24’. That should give us enough space to allow a reasonable amount of shooters to stay out of the sun or rain if necessary. 

Additionally, the shelter is located between the main rifle shooting position and what we have referred to as “the briar patch”. So…not only could we use this as a staging area to service the pit, we can use it as a covered shooting position for the rifle range. Max engagement distances haven’t been officially measured yet, but I would guess it to be about 515 yards. 

Not bad. Not bad at all.
