We could setup balloons at 300 yards and shoot it all day (I mean, lots of balloons). That way, we don't have to walk and check every now and then if we hit paper. My .300 Win Mag's barrel needs to be warm again. I'll bring the brats to be grilled.
I have offered that before many time and no one has taken me up on it. Spring is best. There is no walking out to set stuff up, I have ATV's.
Balloons are fun but I have steel targets. Another one that is super cool is save up your used bottles and fill them with water. It is super cool to shoot them with silenced rifles, watch the target explode then hear the impact about 1 second later.
I only have one spare couch but I have lots of "camping" room.
I even live 15 min away from a diveable body of water, Lake Roosevelt. There is not much to see and in the spring the water will be WAY down.
I don't know jack about rifles or shooting in general, really, but that sounds like a lot of fun.
Pitch in for some ammo and we can shoot my Remington PSS .308. It's a tack driver. Not much fun at 100 yards, because all the bullets keep going through the same hole. At 300, it's a lot more about skill.
