The Army has tightened the rules on bringing firearms onto the base. Because Pedneau is not on the main base, we do not have to worry aboutthem. If you go through the main gate you must register all firearms.

Wow, sounds like fun, wish I was up there.
This should be fun. Heck I killed my moose at that range. I have had folks talk about shooting their Caribou a lot further away than that. How hard could it be? I bet that some of you other hunters out there will show up and try your luck. I wonder if the Tacti-cool shooters will come also? After all, It's just a piece of paper with a big black spot on it. Nothing as tough as a steel plate--right? Oh, I forgot--the distance will be in yards--nothing as cool as meters. I'm going to bring my .338 Lapua. Hope that you all will "man-up" and show up!
What ammo would you have for sale? In 30-06 for a Garand?
What targets will be used?
check w/Mark on the ammo
target is NRA MR-1 standard 600 yard with black 7 ring, that is 36inch diameter
bring bug dope, water and tp for the head...bugs are hungry at the range
optional, but nice to have: optics help for scoring, good spotting scope and tripod is best /binos can work;
expect to stay until all the gear is restowed, allow for 3 hours minimum thanks
