Get yourself a good Pelican case for your guns and come out to Arizona on a 3-Day weekend. In the West Valley (Phoenix is centeral) you have Ben Avery Shooting Facility and Rio Salado Sportsman's Club in the East Valley. Both ranges offer 200+ yard shooting however, the 300 yard range at Ben Avery is only open several times a month since it is shared with our local DPS and a few other users if I'm not mistaking. Rio Salado on the other hand offers 300 yard shooting on their small bore public range but there are only a few lanes that can shoot that far. Personally I prefer Ben Avery because the small bore public range has approximately 60 shooting lanes, where as Rio Salado has half as many lanes. A side from the shooting ranges there is always something going on around Phoenix whether it is car related, sports, concerts, etc. Once a year Barrett-Jackson auction is held in Scottsdale along with a variety of other prestige car auctions. Coincidentally, a later there is always a PGA tournament held just down the street from the auction site. If you're really into automotive racing, Nascar, NHRA, Drag Boat Racing Series and Off Road Racing Series all race out here once at least once a year. I mention all of these things because while the shooting opportunities out here are great, Arizona has more to offer. On a side note, I am very amazed at how the Beretta 92 platform continues to evolve. I've gotta give credit to Beretta for continuing to find ways to make the 92 relevant even in today's polymer heavy market.
