    its true. when we get old , we tend to forget things. and this is what happens when you travel the country shooting and forget to label pictures.

    WHERE WAS I?

    anyone recognize this range?

    what little brain cells remain, tells me it might be northern ohio near sandusky maybe?

    never thought i'd see that saying come true...but now im one of those old guys that has forgot more than some of the younger guys know.

    let me know, all you guys......with more brain cells than me!

    Yes the brain starts to fail in too short a time . I went out for Chinese last week with the intentions of getting what the wife wanted -- Egg Drop soup and Beef on a stick and in just 15 minutes it turned out to be Hot and Sour soup and Chicken on a stick . Mine was right ??? Spare rib combo !!!

    I don't suppose you would remember if there was another trap to the right that sat somewhat lower than the other two in the pic.

    The sheltered structure behind the one trap reminds me of a club in PA. I believe it was called the New Oxford Gun Club.

    Does your camera supply GPS Coordinates? Just a thought. If you took it with a phone those Coord's would be there.

    I've never been to the Oxford Gun Club, but the satellite photo on google maps shows trap fields without walkways between the 27 yd stations.

    I wish I had been to so many clubs that I couldn't remember them all by picture.

    this pic was taken around 1993. it was taken with 135mm snapshot. i took a pic of a pic for you. no gps on this one folks. the pick was taken while i was standing under a shelter. there was a quarry or a pond across the street behind me. i know the road was real close to the traps. i only remember 2 traps. and it had pistol and rifle range. btw, that white stuff was wet snow! my camera fogged up.
