    I know there is a trap range somewhere near Buena Vista, Colorado, but not sure where. I'll be in BV this week & wondered where it is & when do they shoot.

    I think they have a new clubhouse now. This picture is several years old.

    Bluehaze, I bet someones great - great grandpa is in that picture. Certainly its from the late 1800's mining days.
    If your in Colorado, Leadville is not far away, its home to a very old trap club that is the highest shooting club in the world, over 10,000 feet I believe.

    I've actually registered targets there. The last time I was there, the clubhouse was a trailer. They had several traps as well as a sporting clays set up with a tower right in front of the club house. Had a good time.

    They are located on the south edge of the fairgrounds/rodeo grounds on a county road (don't remember the number but it is the shortcut between BV and Mt. Princeton Hot Springs) just off the southwest edge of the city and west of the airport.
