I get what you're saying dude but with THOUSANDS of acres of BLM and forest ground it's just too much area that we can get out and disperse and shoot when and where we want without having to monkey with regulations and stuff. I built a shooting bench and can travel 30 minutes and shoot in a nice safe area with backstop for 1000 yards plus. Why would I want to pay and be relegated to an organized/controlled area for the same thing? Drive 1.5 hours outa SLC and you can have the same. Just doesn't pan out to have a Govn't controlled range when doing it yourself costs nothing and can do the same. I know that it's not gonna be safe to shoot from late July to early September so I do my shooting outside those times. I do have safe areas during those months but find it's best to work around just in case. Anyways that's my thoughts on why we don't spend the $ as Utahn's--taxes and fees are high enough I think.
