After much discussion with the Wife and kids, we're seriously considering a move to Lake Havasu, AZ and kissing California goodbye.
Of course, my first thoughts also held "Any good shooting ranges/areas" within the area?
Any AZ members from Lake Havasu that I could pick their brains about the various logistics?
You will need a boat. Trust me.
It gets hot there. Phoenix-hot.
Houses aren't as cheap as they were, but still much below CA.
Make sure you can work there.
Try 10+ degrees hotter than Phoenix most of the time. We may hit 115-116 for a couple of days during the summer, but it's pretty rare that we get into the 120s like Havasu does.
The boat comment is right on.
Oh, keep a couple of cameras around cause the pasties are simply amazing!!! Havasu can be quite the pie-fest (on the lake, anyway).
I'm right up the river from the lake. Go talk to Sam @ Sams Shooters Emp. on McCulloch.
He's got a range right at the shop. I bought my F/A Uzi from him, he's the fat bald headed guy.
He's a nice guy,but keep your hand on your wallet
Real nice town and +1 on the boat.
Edit to add: Alot of desert dwellers just hit the desert to shoot but in the summer
it's nice to be inside.
