    Thanks to PhillipD, we now have several new steel targets at Magnolia. There are two new plate racks on Range 1A and two new static rectangular gongs on both the 200 and 300 (Ranges 4 & 5). The targets look really well designed and constructed and should provide many years of use for our members. Thanks to Phillip, Kevin, Eddie, and all others involved in these range improvements.

    Now the trick is to get some folks to hit the plates & not the stand base.

    So... to miss a target by three feet at a distance of 15 yards... 238.125 Minutes of Angle? Is "Hours of Angle" even a real term? Might want to tighten up those groups a bit.

    PhilipD, maybe we need a quote on how much AR500 it would take to put in a floor and a ceiling on Range 1?

    It would be safer for all if some folks would just stick with Nerf guns.

    I think we have figured out who can't hit a plate rack at 10 yards...

    I use to haul the welding machine up there at 4am to weld up targets and fix them.. It become to big of a chore to fix screwups from idiots so i just quit. Some people are just too stupid.

    Mr. John we could do it, but I doubt it would be cheap
