Firearm training on personal property

Postby Prepared82 » Thu Feb 09, 2017 1:39 pm

Does anyone in the central/SE portion of the state do any type of firearm training on their own property? Trading at an indoor range is great but not realistic in a SHTF type scenerio. I'm moving up to the colchester/east Hampton/Hebron/Salem area this summer and am hoping to obtain enough acreage that would allow me to set up my own personal small range for firearm training. Not sure if this is a realistic hope/goal. Just wondering if anyone up in the area has any personal experience, thoughts, opinions.

Lol CT being the way it is Id be happy if I could get away with running small pistol drills inside of 20 yards. Drawing from concealed, working on target acquisition, etc. Do you currently reside in this region of CT?

No sir I do not. I'm in Yuma AZ. Just curious what you considered training. Look into something like gunsite or the like, but closer to your area to get the training you're looking for. Don't pay attention to the YouTube commandos who "train" with firearms. 9 times out of 10 it's some guy who watches and parrots other videos from Chris costa when in reality what they do will get you shot up...

A realistic goal is to get out of CT.

Or you could go down to Reb's and do your shooting. One day down one day shooting and one day back. Don't forget to police your brass.....

Hardly a day goes by without the sound of gunfire around my place. Lately, it's seldom mine.

loves the sound of full auto in the woods out back :gunsmile:

How far are you from Epping, NH?

The Sig Sauer academy should be pretty close to you, two and a half hours from Hartford.

If that is not an option, have you considered air rifles or pellet pistols?

In the off months, I practice with a IZH 46M at ten meters.
Beware of the guy with only one Cast Iron pan . . . he likely knows how to use it.
