It was perfect! No mud/no rain. Pretty windy though...

If you haven’t been before please go 5mph once you turn into the access road... the grooves in the dirt road are brutal! I could see someone breaking down because of violent vibrations.

Not a lot of people out there either! Some what suprised.

I drove a Fwd suv and didn’t have an issue. The dirt was a little soft at the shooting site but nothing to be worried about. Guys driving in front of us had a old 4Runner and an older 2wd Tacoma and they were doing just fine

Question- has anyone heard of any violence up there? I personally carry my rifle on a sling when I reset targets because I’m worried someone could run up and rob me. Prob just Paranoid but with all the new gun owners and how free it is out there it makes me extra cautious of my surroundings.

I was at Tumey's about a month ago and it was PACKED. I mean...literally people would drive in and have to drive back out. Panoche is much better because access is further in and "harder" to get it. IMO, Panoche is worth the extra 30-45 min to get in.

I've been to Panoche and Tumey's countless times and never had any issues. However, on two occasion there were some shady characters coming through. But we were in a large group all strapped up so they can try at their own peril. I would be more worried at Panoche than Tumey given that Panoche can be much more remote. I think it's just a bunch of urban legend that get passed around regarding cartels going there. However, I believe I did read something about how a body was found at Panoche once and they believed that it was related to some hispanic gang. Don't quote me on that one.

This is really good advice if you're in a car and don't do much dirt driving. In a even mildly build truck you can air down once you get off the pavement and bomb everywhere at 45. It's just funky washboard.
