Upper Middle Georgia Head Count
« on: December 17, 2020, 05:03:59 PM »
I am in the Barnesville area and taken a new interest in the sport. The pandemic has put a damper on my normal powder driven practices, so I have invested time in picking up some air gunning. I just wanted to see who or what is in the area and reach out to the community in general.

I know there is a regular shoot up in Covington on Saturday mornings, that always sounded like fun, but the drive mitigating ATL traffic would make it a rare event. Saw a couple of fellers down in Warner Robbins are shooting some, which would be closer and more accessible, and there is a Krispy Kreme on the way. I am wondering if there is anything more in my neck of the woods, the community has to have grown recently.

I have a farm and thought about offering a field target match or two for fun, nothing serious or formal, it has a good layout for it.

@cast -> Lithonia is not nearly as far away as I previously thought it was, eastern Dekalb. We will definitely have to stay in touch. I have read there is a weekly tournament in covington offered by atlanta air. Have you attended it? Any thoughts?

@EdinGa -> The big little city of Maconia, I head that way nearly twice a month and make a pilgrimage to bass pro for shooting supplies. I should add a monthly visitation to Nuway while I am at it to get my chili fix. Out of curiosity, where do y'all normally shoot at? I read there are a couple down in Warner Robbins. Have you ever done anything with them?

I had more to inquire about, but honestly all that nuway talk made me hungry.

Mainly at my range at home, but I'm limited to about 60 yards or so. I have a membership at Griswoldville gun club if I want to shoot farther than 60 yards. I have a buddy over near Lake Tobosofkee that I shoot airguns and powder burners with.

Let me know when you're going to be at Bass Pro and maybe we can hook up there or at Nuway sometime.

That sounds like my kind of shooting. I don't care much for competition anymore, but I do like to have fun and challenge myself.
