When in Salt Lake City – Try out Something New

Recently Carducci Tactical had the opportunity to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah.   It was our first time visiting the great state of Utah and we were not disappointed.  From Rifle Golf at Spirit Ridge to trap shooting at the Bountiful Lions Club, we found shooting activities anyone would enjoy.

It’s been described as golf with a gun, an ATV and no dress code.   Until our review you can check out their website and if you are in northern Utah – don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to shoot up to 1,300 yards!

A Young Shooter Takes Aim at the Lions Club Range

Amy had the opportunity along with Danny to try trap shooting at the Bountiful, Utah Lions Club Range.  Who could turn down shooting trap while over looking the Great Salt Lake?   The Bountiful Lions Club has  a long tradition of serving the community and helping with sight conservation.  Through fund-raising projects the club is able to donate money to charitable programs for eye centers, leader dog training, eye glasses to underprivileged children and more.   Since 1941 the club has attracted shooters from all over the Salt Lake City area.

While in the Salt Lake City area head north to Ogden and check out the John M. Browning Fire Arms museum and see the original 1911 among other important guns designed by Browning.  Did you know Browning was born in Ogden, Utah?  Browning’s inventions dominated the field of firearms during his time and are the basis for many weapons still in use today. Got time left?  In Ogden you can hike, fish, mountain bike or sit back enjoy the view of the Wasatch Mountains.   A unique visitor’s attraction is the Eccles Dinosaur park.  We spent an afternoon dwarfed by life-sized reproductions of dinosaurs.

Utah takes pride in having an outdoor activity for everyone.  From shooting to hiking or shopping – we found it all while surrounded by beautiful mountains and friendly people.  For those looking for a new adventure try rifle golf and to start off 2012 with a bang – check out the Expo in February.   We can’t wait to go back and we didn’t even mention our day spent on Antelope Island watching the bison or our trip to the Snowbird Resort for Alpine sliding or the zip line.  Utah really is an outdoor lovers dream come true!
