There are a number of us here and I'm sure there are some around your neck of the woods. I'm up in Prescott so I can't help you with the local stuff, but you'll find most shooters in the Tucson or Phoenix areas just go out into the desert to shoot. There is plenty of that where you are. I'm sure someone local will chime in or you can go to the other Ruger Forum at Rugerforum.com. There are plenty from the Tucson area over there. Welcome to Arizona. Hope you like it as much as I do.

WHAT !!! ? You ain't takin us ??
Vale ?Just don't blink.It's that small.G/F's nephew lives there.
(Been sending resumes to AZ,NV, and MT)
You have a good one in AZ !! Have several pards:near Show Low, and Wickenburg, and not too far from Eloy.
When we returned to Modesto,I told my G/F after getting off Hwy 99,Mitchell Rd,that I was going to have to get used to Modesto all over again.
There's lots of mines,buried loot, and ghost towns.

I used to live in Tucson, spent some time there thanks to Uncle Sam. No, I'm not Air Force, read my Profile.
Vail is the "eastside" of Tucson now. You are real close to I-10, so commuting to downtown shouldn't be a problem. Shooting in the desert is OK, if you know where you are shooting. Lots of places I used to shoot at are now "State Trust Land" run by Game and Fish, and target shooting is verbotten on that land. :(
There are two indoor shooting ranges there, eastside and westside. You will be near the eastside range. Mt Lemon is fun if you like playing in the mountains. There's a lot to see and do there, enjoy and have fun.

Always loved that area. Hope one day to move to Az or NM. May never happen but that's my wish. I ran the desert whils living in SoCal and it got in my blood. Lots of ghost towns, mines and neat places to explore. Coffee Pot's territory is some of the prettiest in that state. I am envious of your move and wish you the best. As you find new adventures, make us a part of them.

There is a good outdoor range on Valencia east of the Pima Air Museum and Boneyard. Will be on your left heading toward the mtns. Not real easy to spot unless you are looking for it. Look for large concrete pipe sections.

Think it is a pay range but not sure. I live up in PHX but my best friend used to live down in that area and shot there but I don't have any details.

Great !!
For some sight-seeing,about roughly 20 miles east on I-10,Benson.
Hankerin for Tombstone ? Follow the signs.Nice 17 mile drive (there about).And spend some time there.
Yep, those guns are real.There's a guy by the name "Johnny Bones"a
street entertainer.Can't find his website.Has one.Nice guy.
Good food;Nellie Cashman's Restaurant,Long Branch,The Silver Dollar...
AND !!! Good people ! Spangenburg's Gun Shop on,think, 4th Street.
Brunckow's Cabin (look this one up !)BootHill Cemetary as you come into town,on the left.Big Nose Kate's Saloon...many stores.
A lot of history there.
Let's say a visit will keep ya commin back for more !
G/F (future wife) wants to go back,and see Bobby the singer at the Silver Dollar.

You betcha !
Lot's of fine people there !:D
Looks like now,in for the duration.
Don't look like anything is going to happen any time soon.
Guess, I can thank the ARM's (Adjustable Rate Mortgages)for this
"trickle down effect".
Soon,looks like I'll "fire" EDD (unemployment).Been over 2 weeks since my claim was sent in.4 checks hasn't shown up.Had this as a backup:
G/F isn't in the best of health,I can do the "In Home Service".She would be my boss.(Ain't she always ?)Get paid by the county.
When I do,I'll lose my financial aid for relocation.Oh well.
If those bureaucrats would have their checks held up for some reason,they'd sure wouldn't like that.
Enjoy Arizona.You do have some elbow room.:D
