He didn't lay out all the rules for me then, but I've since looked them up and it's not exactly crystal clear. He did mention to clean up my mess.

    As far as the no shotguns vs. no "shot" ammo, I've been through that too and was told slugs were ok. You'd better get your own confirmation on that though. Regardless of where you shoot, please remember to clean up.
    1- He needs to fired because doing that is bluntly forbidden.

    Your only allowed to target shoot at the ranges.

    2-The same link shows the rule is muti projectile ammo, not type of firearm.
    They put up the no shotgun sign because people don't seem to need to read the orange sign so it's just easier to post the shotgun sign.

    So where- Read up the posts and I say were the closest shot legal range is at. It's really a skeet range but it's better than nothing.

    I was told that it doesn't even need to be at a shooting range, you can just got to SGL and set up a target and pattern. Target can be against a tree or anything and you need to clean up. No damage to the woods and the loads have to be hunting loads and hunting weapons so you still have to follow all hunting rules.

    *sigh*
    I gave you chapter title and verse in the hunting rules for why that's a bad idea.
    I can't cut and paste it, it's on the right side 1/2 down.
    So you can PM WCO on here and ask him, or plan A where you do what the fuck you want despite that. Some of those instructors still insist you can't carry when hunting despite the chapter in the game rules that does say yes and how.
    The dirt road might be still open past the range, go up on Sat, drive up a bit, set up, start blasting. Let us know how it turns out for you. Be sure to inc fines and hunting lic susp times.

    If you don't like the link Rosco provided , which goes straight to the Hunting and Trapping Digest, here is a link to SGL range stuff on their website http://www.portal.state.pa.us/portal...=937862&mode=2. As both yard and Rosco said , it does not restrict by firearm type but my projectile type.

    The following copy/paste is from page 19 of the 2014 2015 hunting digest. The page is titled "State Game Lands Regulations" It is a bullet point under "the following activities are prohibited:"
    ___________________
    Target shoot with firearms, bows and arrows, or devices capable of
    launching projectiles, unless the person is in possession of a valid
    hunting or furtaker license signed by its holder
    . Exercise of
    privileges shall be done in a manner as to not cause injury to
    persons or property, or on areas not otherwise posted closed to those
    activities.
    ___________________

    I added the bold.

    I don't mean to stir up trouble or be contrary, but the above seems to support what the instructor told me when I asked.

    next para has except at ranges it has to be a "hunting gun" with hunting lic so ok it seems to ok it but not during hunting season. See page 29, "random shooting" I would like to put this to the PGC before I put it to a test.

    Nevermind the weather going to sux balls on wed to go shooting.

    Another fine day at Toby. In the last week someone fixed the frame on the short pistol side and replaced the backing. You could build a shed out of all the steel cases laying around, and it really needs a trash can or two, but those are minor issues. I met a very nice couple with a pile of nice guns, got to try a Sig P320, Ruger SR9c and an LC9s, and gave them a taste of the PPX. The LC9s has a much better trigger than the previous model I handled, I imagine the Pro is even nicer without the mag disconnect.

    I was thinking going on Sunday to try my reloads in 308. Is the backing on the 100 and 200 are they in good shape. Do they still have the rule at noon you can start shooting. I will have my chrono with me to test these little guys.

    Yes the Noon rule still applies. Also the rifle benches are 50/100yds. Not 1/200 just a heads up.
