I was out tooling around in the desert west of Maricopa and pulled up to a locked gate with a sign saying its a private range. South of 238 near Mobile. Google earth shows what's obviously a professionally built range.

Anyone ever been out there to shoot?

You nailed it.  Flying Bucket.  Has Chris Dillon's name on it.  if you zoom in on google earth, it looks like some test facilities and a runway near by.

The place is called Archangel Companies Here

Few friends and I would go out there a few times a year as a group.  Its not bad but a small drive for us north/west siders. Owner is super cool. You can shoot f/a, 50 cal, ect.

Its not Archangel, I've been out there. That's on the north side of 238, this place I'm referring to is on the south side. And yeah it looks like the Dillion guy owns it

Yes, flying bucket ranch is owned by the Dillon guy. I helped build a huge berm there a few years ago.
