Yep! He got a wild hair up his nether orifice and took off on a road trip; ended up here and we went to Oatman to visit the wild, free-range Democrats. A good time was had by all, I hope. I certainly enjoyed it!
Hehehe... well, I don't have a problem maligning those wildlifes - burros or Democrats, they're all jackasses to me.
I haven't been through Oatman for about a year or so. The last time was probably Jan - Feb 2013, as I took my new Savage .243 Axis out for a test shoot after work one evening on the way home. Boundary Cone Road is the main road to Oatman from my office, being the original Route 66, but it continues on to Kingman and points East. Immediately after leaving the town, though, there's a dirt road to the left that goes to Bullhead City called Silver Creek Road. There are a number of spots along that road where it's safe and legal to shoot. I haven't fired it since, as I really don't care for bolt action rifles, and haven't had much reason to visit Oatman either. Since I got the .243 BLR and .30-06 BAR I've been really intent on becoming proficient with them, and that requires a formal range. Happily, there are two on Boundary Cone Road - one near my office, and the other in Golden Valley. The close one is good for general shooting, but the one in Golden Valley has a 1000 yard range, which both of my favorite calibers are designed to reach accurately. I hope one day to be competent to shoot that range with either.
