if anyone has a lead to a range that may be available, please comment.

Glad to hear this Brandon.

I will ask the range where I am a member.  They normally have very strict policies about non-members not shooting there, not even as a guest, so I don't know how successful I will be.

Another option down this way would be the Highland IL sportsmans club. They have had winter airgun silhouette shoots down there for years. You might want to contact Dave Rensing aka R Arms Innovations and see if he can help with that.

 Another thought ,Triennor air guns ?  I may be wrong mistaken but he may have 100 yard range, and has held a small gathering in the past IIR.

Carl,

I hope you can make it happen.  If it were a two event,  we'd bring our camper.  Maybe we could have a timed can shoot, Lilly would like that.
