Shooting Tunnel

Post by DavidABQ » Sat Jun 01, 2019 2:41 pm

I have had some questions asked about it so I thought I would share a few photos.

Now this is not nearly as impressive as Doodaddy's facility, but our gun-club is very proud of it and it is the only one that I am aware of in the area.

I'm not even going to lie. That is one of the more impressive things I have ever seen. :x

It is great for testing ammo! I feel fortunate that our club has it.

That's a great idea!

What is the inside diameter of the tunnel?

Thanks...

That's a much more effective tunnel than my place if you're looking to test ammo in the most controlled environment. I've considered building a clone of that on casters out of the plastic culverts before actually.

Not what I expected but much better, that is really nice.

It would be pretty hard to blame crappy groups on the wind when you shoot in it.

That is nice Dave, thanks for posting the pictures.

Kris, It is a 100 yard tunnel. I do feel fortunate that the club has it. :D \m/
