    thanks lewis........

    so far we've got sighting/bench rest (2 lanes), practice range (targets and silhouettes) and a 30 target FT/HFT course. perhaps we will move the course out into "openish" field, as right now it's in a coffee plantation and the wind if any is dampened by rows upon rows of wind breakers.

    i like the idea of swingers at 5m interval, will definitely add that in.......

    strange? why can't i use "faclilities" ?

    Are there any clubs in the Pretoria or Johannesburg area that are generally open over weekends? Sometimes you just feel like going out for the morning and having a shoot.

    Guthries are in Midrand and very easy to find, and open on weekends. They have targets set up at 5m intervals, archery butts, and quite a few FT fall-down steel targets in interesting locations.

    Take Ben Schoeman towards JHB, turn off at Allandale, turn right and drive over the bridge over the highway, at the next lights up the hill a little turn right, and at the 2nd lights after that turn left into Le Roux rd. Guthries are just before the stop street at the bottom of the hill in Le Roux rd on the left hand side, there is a long gravel driveway with tall reeds on either side.

    Guthries are also firearms dealers, they have toilet facilities, an indoor firearm shooting range, and they even sell cooldrinks and pellets!

    Did you manage to get to Guthries at all? Luckily in our area there are quite a few cubs to choose from, I like Guthries because the shooting range is open all the time, not just for club events.
