Starting the Ozark Mountains Airgun Club
« on: July 29, 2021, 11:47:03 PM »
A fellow airgunner, and myself, have decided to jump feet first into creating an Airgun Club for the area of southwest Missouri. And what's a club without an event to get it started on the right foot?

So the newly formed "Ozark Mountains Airgun Club" would like to invite other fellow airgun enthusiasts to the first ever squirrel hunting competition. The event will be held on October 2, 2021 at the Lead Mine Conservation Area near Tunas, Mo. There are campsites and a non staffed gun range available. We are planning on arriving October 1, 2021 for an overnight camp out and perhaps some fun plinking that Friday. 

So we would encourage you to come out the day before and camp with us. Give us all a chance to get to know one another. We plan on providing dinner (hamburgers) Friday night around the campfire.

This event is open to anyone else that enjoys shooting airguns, not just to those that live in the area.  The squirrel hunt will have 2 categories to compete, most squirrels and heaviest squirrel. The competition will also be in teams of 2. So bring your family and friends that you want to team up with.

So at this point, you're probably asking yourself "what about the prizes?" Well we've got that covered. Metal targets will be made by SweezC on agn (Casey) to give to the winners of each category. As well as our very 1st hats that will be made for the Ozark Mountains Airgun Club. But that's not all. There will also be even a greater prize! The winners will forever go down in the history books as the very FIRST event champions of the Ozark Mountains Airgun Club! The Fame! The Glory! The Book Deals!

So really, if you've got nothing planned for October 1-2, 2021, come on out. Bring your family and friends. Help us to bring together an exciting event with the opportunity to meet some new folks that enjoy what you do! I know SweezC on agn(Casey) and myself are pretty excited to see where this goes. We are already talking about a field target competition sometime soon afterwards.

Oct 1st we are grilling burgers for those that want to sit down and get to know some other local fellow air gunners. Oct 2nd is the squirrel hunt. Weigh in is at 3:00pm. Limit of 10 squirrels. It is the hunters responsibility to know the law and have the correct permits.

If you would like to attend, please send me a private message. And if you have any questions, I will answer them asap. Thank you

Sure sounds like a lot of fun. I'm stuck working and on the other side of the state or I'd be up for it. Maybe next go around!!
