Trapshooting snowbird destination ?

Is southern Nevada (Las Vegas) or southern Arizona (Phoenix/Tucson) a better destination for trapshooting snowbirds ?

Arizona runs about eight degrees warmer than Nevada during the six colder months.

Nevada has no state income tax.

Nevada currently has a much cheaper housing market.

Arizona has three major trap destinations -- Ben Avery, Casa Grande, and Tucson.

Nevada has the very nice Las Vegas range, but it has not yet developed much of a ATA registered schedule program.

Thoughts ?

Trapshooting loading component cost and availablity may be an issue, but to some degree that might be more of a national market. Don't know.

Practice tickets at the Las Vegas trap range cost more than double what I am used to paying. Can't remember what the practice tickets in Arizona ran ?

The Las Vegas trap range closes at 5 PM (awfully early it seems).

Florida, no income tax, no inheritance tax, veteran & senior citizen real estate tax exemptions, to state run liquor stores, no personal property taxes---only negative higher costs to shoot than cheap local clubs up north. But, financially you're way ahead in Fl.

Tennessee offers decent weather and retiree advantages in taxes and cost of living with about 9 solid months for trap shooting and many days over 50 degrees in the 3 month off season. Oak Ridge Sportsman's Association features 2 new Promatic traps at $3 per round. Three skeet fields, 1000 yd rifle, indoor pistol, plinking, and archery ranges are part of the offerings. Best club, climate, and people in the region. New trap shooters always welcomed! Ralph

You can shoot just about every day in AZ during the chain, Spring Grand, and AZ State shoot time frame. You can also park an RV at most of the clubs.

Lots more to see in AZ, too.

Near Silver Dollar this year. Spent last winter in Tucson. I like the low humidity in AZ. Shooting is about the same. Shell shortage has been better everywhere we have been this year over last. Fishing is better in Fla.

Does Las Vegas and Clark County (which stretches from St George, Utah, to the California state line) require handgun registration like New York City and Chicago ?

Hammer Clark County stops in Mesquite Nevada and then you enter into Arizona which runs through the gorge and then you hit St George. If you move to Las vegas you are not required to register your hand guns. If you guy a gun from a gun dealer you go thorugh a backround check and the gun is rgistered. If you sell a gun to a private individual you are not required to have it registered, but many people do the sale thorugh a FFL dealer.
