F is for Firing Range.............
It was right before hunting season started, and the boys needed to sight in their rifles.
We live in the country - but it isn't rural enough anymore that we can just set up a target in the backyard.
So, upon calling the local police, we discovered that the recycling center for our town had the outdoor facilities for the state and local police to train and practice.
We just had to fit ourselves in around their schedules, get the correct signed permissions, and we use it.
They really had quite a set-up down away from the where the public goes to drop off their trash and recycling.
Aside from these stationary targets, there were a couple of buildings and blinds that were also used.
Off to one side, there was a whole course with jumps, fences, and tubes set up for training the police dogs.
It was really kind of cool to see all this set up.
The boys accomplished their sightings while I combed the area with my camera.
I got some strange looks from some of the locals visiting the dump since it isn't the most prime spot for taking photos, but the stock photographer in me couldn't have cared less at the time.
The boys were having fun, I was having a ball, and we were all cleaned up and out of there before the next round of troopers arrived.
This is the fourth round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.
