    I shot End of Trail from 1985-2004. First in Coto de Caza, Calif. then we moved to Norco, Calif. These are some pictures from back then. First, there was only One handgun, shotgun, rifle. Second, there were NO Gun carts, you carried your long guns and rested them on the toe of your boot Later some gun racks were placed for us waiting to shoot. Third, there were NO Posse system, you just lined up with your buddies and talked while waiting to shoot. Fourth, there were NO timers, we used stop watches or the second hand on our wristwatch. Fifth, everyone was a safety officer, we watched out for major violations, but there were very few. Sixth, everyone had a great time. Most showed up and camped for 4-5 days with tents, teepees, or camper vans, motorhomes. I hope you enjoy seeing pictures from Coto de Caza, End of Trail. just sayin' Big Jake 1001 SASS Life.

    Pistol 3-5 paces Rifle 9-13 paces (depending on whether rifle targets are dual purposed as downrange movement pistol targets) Shotgun 7-8 paces No target (regularly) smaller than 16x16 Knockdowns/ reactive targets may be placed differently based on stage design. Im not a big fan of needless swings or dead space; so I like about a 6 inch spread between pistol plates; 6 - 10 inches between rifle plates. We have a couple multi level target trees for varying heights on target arrays. We have taken great pains to build targets and hangers that deflect rounds downward safely. So are they safe (or as safe as we can make them?). Yes. Are they too close? Maybe Are they too easy? Maybe. The best shooters don't care; they will be successful at any range and array. The slower shooter group will always be clamoring to move them further away because they believe their accuracy will then overcome speed. But most shooters are average in skill; and the average shooter likes to hit targets and they like to do so at speed (speed is, of course, a relative term; but most shooters enjoy feeling like they are on their own personal ragged edge). Big close target arrays offer the greatest number of shooters the best opportunity to have their best shoot. And lest we forget; we are not a shooting sport... We are in the entertainment business. In competition not with IPSC and IDPA; but with movie theaters, road trips, underwater basket weaving or ANY other use of a person's discretionary fun monies. And when we cease to entertain our shooters; they will find other venues to enjoy themselves. Moving targets out a couple yards further won't change the order on the score sheet. It won't change the incidents of splatter or splash that occur because of poorly angled targets. What it will do is affect the "fun" that your mid pack shooters experience. It will affect the smiles and the fist pumps and the elevated heart rates that keep our shooters excited until the next time.
