Any North Phoenix folks?

Any of you FAL whackadoos in North Phoenix, or anywhere nearby? If so, I'm always game for a range trip and a brew after.

What days work for you? I can take the 303 all the way to the 17 now, much easier to get to Ben Avery. Joe Foss is open every other weekend now.

Sorry for the late reply. Weekends are usually open. I work from 9:30-6, so I could do early morning on a weekday.

The nice spots are a little further up north😁 if your into cool mountain air and such. Seriously everywhere is nice down there according to the time of year.

Anytime other than spring and summer is nice in southern Az.

I thought it was the Chiruchua's(?)

This time of year you need to get above the Mogollon Rim for a pleasant place to shoot.

It's too early for me to 100% commit, but at the moment it looks like I can be in Tucson the weekend of Nov 2 & 3. I have business there on Mon & Tues, and up in Phoenix on Wed that following week.
