    Yeah, so how much did all that cost you? Feel free to include all the time you spend on maintenance, too :evil:

    It just cost me a dead relative....and raising a bunch of goats.

    Sounds like you need some new friends with brains.

    A very high cost indeed. They spent a considerable amount of their life in order to leave it to you.

    Actually he bought the place in the 1950's on a VA loan for less than the cost of a new vehicle today. Lifetime ago. The land has done nothing but go up....way way up. I would not be able to afford this place ever. My family used to have a lot of land up Llano way...when I was a kid we used to go to a 1000 acre place right on the Llano river. I also used to hunt wild hogs at Packsaddle mountain on family land...way in the distance you could see Lake Travis. That place is famous for being the last battleground of the Indian Wars here in Texas. Yeah, as a kid you don't know any different and think everyone has access to land and places to go.

    Nothing.

    I seldom ever go to public or private shooting clubs.

    I shoot pistol and rifle at the Farm (I have 180 yards out the back door of the shop). I also have target at 25, 50, and 100 yards.

    Pistol plates:

    Rifle (presently at 180, I’ll push it back to 200 this winter)

    I can shoot out to 500 at one buddy’s place, and potentially out to 1,000 at another buddy’s place.

    I’m always looking for whenever AR500 plate goes on sale, I always like adding stuff to shoot at.

    The larger horizontal pipes are 2-⅜” fence posts. I use an EMT minerallac strap to clamp my chains to the pipe. I use a u-bolt to clamp the pipe to my t-post.

    My rifle target is currently made of chain link top rail. I plan to replace that with t-post and another fence post cross bar when I move it back.

    My 25, 50, and 100 yard targets are mounted to a standard t-post. I welded up a mount that slips over the top. I’m still fiddling with the design on those. What works really well for pistol, doesn’t swing enough for rifle. I have a new idea, just need some time to fab up a new mount system.
