    Hudson Farms

    Went to Hudson Farms this Tuesday, invited by a friend who had won a shooting session at a DU fundraiser. Amazing place. Was told the membership fee is $25 000. Annually...

    I used to spend a lot of time there as a kid. There's a little red wooded platform (or used to be) overlooking the pond by the road on the property that I learned to fish from. Lots of time spent catching sunnies there!

    The whole place was started by a small group on people from Chelsea, including my grandmother in the early part of the 20th century, basically as a retreat for city kids to get fresh air, swim, hike, learn a bit about agriculture, etc.... Because of my grandmother's founding connection, my family had a summer house there for many many years, one of the few houses on the property and I wonder if it's still there or if they tore it down. If I remember correctly from my grandmaw (who died at 99), it was a 100 year lease, and after that is when the hunting/shooting club bought it. It's kind of ironic that my grandmother helped found the place as a retreat and especially as a place for underprivileged children, and now it's owned by literally the most wealthy in American society. That would make her really sad if she knew.

    25k a year is big $$$$, what do they give you for that? Been there several times, gorgeous property, little to stuffy for the average Joe.

    I think she would be happy that they are preserving the land

    Made (not a stock item) a new firing pin for a SxS and opened the chokes on a SxS for me a few months ago, ready in less than 2 weeks and very reasonable.

    We are very lucky to have such a high grade gunsmith here. They are quick and no doubt, do excellent work. Otherwise, would have to ship outside the state. 8 full time
