Man - I just saw the post of the Halloween shoot at TOM BEAN.

I have to say - there are a ton of inconsiderate people out there.......
(Not commenting on the AR15 people shooting that day - unless they did not pick up trash either)
- But man that place lookd horrible with trash everywhere on the berm.

I cannot believe that there was soooo much trash and garbage out there on the berm.

It has been a few years since I have been there - but man.

Hope those nice people don't get sick of all the crap behind their homes....

How about a range cleanup day?

A couple folks bring pickups to haul trash, some trash bags, rakes, and a dozen people or so and we could fix the trash issue real quick and easy.

I'd be more than happy to pitch in.

Side note: Somebody left a crap ton of shotshells out there. Picked up as much of it as I could.

Yes, we picked up the pumpkin pieces.

There was lots of wood pieces and cardboard on the berm There was also the remenants of some kind of electronics and a brake rotor. There was other garbage on the berm as well. We put out the clays, a box, and the pumpkins. We picked up all the big pieces of the pumpkins, the boxes we brought to shoot up, and some of other peoples trash.

My friends and I do not make it out to Ralph's range very often and if he thinks that we did not do a good job of cleaning up, we will gladly return.

I have, once. Most of the time I go down there are a bunch of shotgun hulls, plastic bottles, parts of various electronics, etc. out there.

My son and I hate picking up brass. Problem solved. Our targets are simple. We use the cheapy "garage sale" type wire stands and old political (especially democrap) or whatever corrugated plastic signs.

Stupid photobucket.

OT- But, tell that young man to lengthen his stock a little. His neck and shoulder will feel a whole lot better after his next range session. Them things are adjustable for a reason.
