Just dropping in to say hey to all the CO mini-14 shooters out here. I just bought mine at the Tanner gun show in January. I wanted something with a little more oomph than a .22 but not as expensive as my 30/30. My dad always wanted a mini-14...so like father likes son. Now I have to decide where to spend the money on mods! See you guys around.

I'm located in Aurora, not far from Golden gun club.

Hi all from WY, with the lack of population in the state, seems that everyone has more fun than we do haha. Got stationed here in '06 and retireing here in June. Stinks that we have to go to Ft. Collins to find an public indoor range. But atleast we have Vedavoo for the outdoor stuff.

There is another one "in Longmont", that is actually at Hwy 119 and I-25.

More than a little expensive.

If they can get you to ask the wrong question,
it doesn't matter what the answer is.

Had another thought, why not buy one of those old missile silos and convert a portion of it to a shooting range? Seems I saw one article where the guy got one for $40K, then paid another $200K to make it into a livable house.

Hello All

Just saying Hi from Chaffee County. We have a great free range here if anyone gets a chance to drop in. Just got a mini 14 and love it. Guess my handgun barrels will get a chance to cool off now!

I'm currently living in Western MO but I do come out to the Colorado Springs area twice a year. Are there any places to do some shooting either inside or outside in that area. when I lived in the "springs" up until 89, we would go up on gold camp road or somewhere up & behind the broadmoor. can you still get up there into the natl. forest ? also, was wondering if anyone out there has a Tactical Mini-14 in 30 caliber & how is the accuracy??? Are you shooting steel cased ammo or brass??? Tom

Was that the "581" series you just got or one of the older models. Not that it matters. The mini is a nice package. I had an older model that I added a "williams" peep site on so that helped. my rifle seemed to favor most ammo in the 55gr range. I now have a "tactical" mini-14 & love it. the heavier & shorter barrel really feel better when bringing it up to the shoulder. Tom

Shooting outside the springs has changed much, there were ranges up rampart range road and dragon man off of hwy 94. Behind broadmoor is more houses..

Derk from colorado springs here, spend most my time at the brothers spread outside of guffey where open carry on a atv is the standard. Love my glock 45, my s&w 44, my mini 14 almost as much as my wife and kids.

Hi Derk, Hoping to get out to the "Springs" in the Fall. Don't know if I'll get any shooting in. I do go up into Teller County quite a bit and points in and around South Park. Will have to check & see if that range SE of the Springs has gone in yet. Tom
