    Decided to hit the range today so I load up and head down the road, only to see this.

    Right at the range. Some idiots from CA were there fucking around and one of the morons shot and blew up a propane tank out past the 300yd berm in the damn brush so now the whole facility is either burned to the ground or in danger from the brush fire. Just behind it is the city dump so lots of burnable fuel there too.

    We can shoot tanks and tannerite targets IF they are within the berms as it's all cleared away and the space is big enough. Outside the berms though is sagebrush and cheetgrass and it's pretty damn dry here this week.

    Talked to a couple guys that got out of there just in time (only 1 road leading out of the valley) and said it was another car full of hispanics from CA that brought out a BBQ propane tank but took it well past the berms and then hit it with an AR. it went boom, and then the fire took off.

    It was too far away for the guys to get to it with the extinguishers to do anything. Hopefully since we've been dealing with brush fires all last month the fire crews can get it controlled quickly. I want to go shooting this weekend damnit.
