Shoot 'N' Plink

Dan's Dad taught him to shoot early in life using a Stevens model 55 single shot 22 rifle and spring action BB gun. By the age of 12 his parents got him his own 22 caliber rifle - a Remington model 514 using Green Stamps to pay. He still has both of these rifles, which are some of the most accurate that he has shot.

Dan always enjoyed target shooting and plinking, and when Henry offered him the chance to obtain a Frontier lever action model it started the passion again. Within a couple of weeks the idea of having the spinoff from Dan's Fish 'N' Tales popped to mind, and off it went.

By 2018 Dan had a piece of property that he was going to use for his own shooting range. However, there were boundary problems. In 2020 Brandon Rogalla and Dan found the remaining property stakes. At almost every corner there were cedar trees, and the rest of the property was filled with old oaks. As a result it was named Cedar Oaks.

Brandon made a Cedar Oaks sign, and in March of 2020 the sign was hung to officially start Shoot 'N' Plink's Cedar Oaks firing range.

Shortly afterward Dan started the digging of the pit for building the backstop for the 25 yard range. Then, in 2021 it was decided to expand the ravine range to make it a 50 yard lane, which is the maximum for this wooded area that is surrounded by another person's property.

There is now a backyard air gun and knife/axe throwing range, and Cedar Oaks for small bore and pistol caliber firearms, all of which is what this is all about - target shooting and plinking.

Here you will find photos of the building of Cedar Oaks, and products used for reviews and other article/video ideas.

Until next time, shoot safe and have a great day of plinking.
