River Bend... 600 yd with potentially challenging winds. Find a member (new membership is currently closed) and go to it. There are a few members at just about any American Legion post that are usually happy to go out there for the price of ammo or a few beers. They also shoot several of the NM courses there once a month that are open to the public.

There's a 800-yard range in Lexington, Ga., due east of Atlanta, kinda close to SC. Gun Site Hills. I do not know how close it is to Atlanta otherwise.

BCO - for readability and credibility- for professionalism - use proper capitalization and punctuation. Typing on a phone is not an excuse, you haven't posted a lot, but I'm sure you've read enough to know that's something with which we have issues.

ETA- your post made my eyes bleed,because spacing and other stuff. do you know what I mean?please refrain from doing it in the future. kbailol.

FWIW, one of the reasons you may be posting on here, and getting butt hurt if people criticize you, is that you care about being heard and understood. I'd be surprised if I were wrong about that.

Text that is poorly punctuated and contains errors is difficult to read and understand. Guidance given on proper technique is done so with regard to the membership understanding what you're trying to communicate.

Look up any study in a professional science journal, for instance. The authors are careful to present their writing in a proper way not just to be understood but to appear professionally competent, and those aren't even people who write for a living.

I may be biased here as an English undergrad major, but if a piece of writing is difficult to follow or understand then I'm likely to not get the point or stop reading altogether.

Was it because it's a military forum and you're a civilian windbag who lacks the publicly available education needed to use punctuation and capitalization?

Or was it because you lack a minimal amount of fortitude and can't handle minimal criticism?

Either way, these are your problems.

OK, The guy can't write any better than a middle school student, and it seems he will never understand what difference it will make. His writing has not changed in 22 posts, and I doubt it ever will; a bigger dog pile won't make any difference either.

So...........back to the OP, or do not respond.

Hey there fellow Georgian. If you are looking for shooting advice and range recommendations then check this site out. Best of luck to you in future endeavors. Sorry you didn't receive a warm welcome here. They don't really care about grammar on the ODT and punctuation is simply a suggestion. But here you go. Link to Georgia Gun Trading forum.
