    i had a spot on 110 acres about 3 minutes outside of the city that i could shoot on whenever. I live on the outskirts of the city, so finding places to shoot is very VERY hard. the next closest place is about 50 minutes away. I could get from my house to this spot in 5 minutes.

    well, i took my new 10/22 out shooting today, and while i was shooting a big truck pulled up and asked me what i was doing. They told me they just bought all 110 acres and they're putting up townhomes. now i have nowhere close to shoot:wtc::wtc:

    i usually get out to shoot about twice a month, or maybe every week. now my range time is gonna go down a whole lot :wtc: fucking developers.

    wait...so you were just shooting on some random 110 acres? Did you not know the people that owned it?

    edit: I say this, because if you didn't know the people that owned the land, you shouldn't have been shooting there anyway. And i'm assuming that if you had known the people that owned the land, they'd have told you they were selling it.

    i know the guy who owned it, and i had written permission, but he's old, and he aint all there. he's never at his property, and i never talk to him so he didn't tell me he sold it.

    That sucks, its like a 40 minute drive depending on traffic for me to get to the outdoor range I shoot at, thats why i dont shoot as much as I'de like to. 3 hours to get upto my uncles property.

    Damn...that sucks then...but I imagine it was a good run while it lasted. Decent outdoor range for me is about 1.5 hours away, so I understand your frustration.

    The outdoor range I belong to is like a 40-50 minute drive away.

    It's not that bad but I wish I could shoot outdoors closer.

    There are some indoor ranges closer though.

    This is why those fucking hippy democratics need to loosen gun laws; people will start shooting up school because they have no where to shoot.
