I searched for an already existing thread but couldn't find one. I thought it might be interesting to see what people have done for ranges in their backyards. We might be able to give each other ideas on how to improve our own! I put it in the "gallery" section as it seemed appropriate.

So here's mine so far. Let me know what you think!

Man it sure would be nice to have that porch into backyard setup. Sit on the swing and take out squirrels at your leisure, all while staying toasty warm!
I thought this thread would get more traction than this. I'd sure love to see what people have set up so I could borrow some of their better ideas!

Here's the range I use with the powder burners.
We've done some more clearing and now have 1,400 meters.

Well unfortunately the porch is narrow. I basically sit on the steps going into the house and use a bar stool as a bench. I kinda stopped using it because it was too narrow to be comfortable, and to change targets. I needed to go outside, thru a gate and then to the target. I have a screen door that will replace that window. Though I might start using it when weather is bad.

But that's my home airgun range. I got 2 firearm clubs I'm member of. One 30mins away and another 10mins away.
