And unsafe, what with the rangemasters ending ceasefires with people still downrange
I vote for panoche also for 1000 yards. I have a 1300 and 1770 yard range out there. Just cruze google earth along the main and side roads, you'll eventually find a good spot to investigate when you drive out there, including GPS coordinates, tracks, street-level views, etc.
Panoche for me is EXACTLY 2 hours by car if we take hwy 5, and if we take little panoche road to Tres Pinos it's 1 hr 50 minutes.
