    In the early 70's, I had a 6 3/4" barreled Browning Nomad .22lr autopistol, with which I could reliably hit pennies at 25 yds, from a braced firing position. There was something about that AK-like...

    there's always some farmer or rancher who'll rent an acre or 2 for $500 a year per acre, so get a dozen guys to share the cost. Most wont make it out there once per year.
