Shooting at Tumey Hills

The Friday after Thanksgiving, Dad, Andrew, Rose, the boys and I head to Tumey Hills to shoot! Tumey Hills is about a 45 minutes drive south on I-5 from Santa Nella on the western hills of the valley in Fresno County. This land is owned and operated by the Bureau of Land Management. Here you can openly fire rifles in the canyons. Once inside the lands we drove to a large empty canyon to test out various weapons. I haven't shot a rifle in a couple of years and never shot a hand gun... until now. It was fun shooting various firearms likes rifles, shot guns, and hand guns.
