Small get together this spring
« on: April 26, 2019, 11:31:23 PM »
Was thinking about a small get together to do some shooting this spring if anyone is interested. I have room for a shooting line. Even room for people to camp out if need be. Just throwing it out there if anyone is interested. Look at map to see my location.

I'm interested too. It's close enough where we wouldn't need to camp.

I would definitely be interested, I'm not too far away. I didn't have anywhere local to shoot until just a few days ago, some friends about 30 minutes away said I could visit their farm anytime. Was going to go today, but not with the rain & snow that's coming. But a little meetup with other airgunners would be fun too.

Ok great sounds like most of you are interested and not supper far away from me. I can let you know a closer date once the weather straightens out haha. I believe we could have a 50 yards and 100/150 yard shooting lines. I have a a shooting backstop if anyone wanted to bring out big bore you could shoot them too. Wife gave the all clear...so making progress haha

Still planning on it, having a hard time keeping up with the grass this year with all the rain. If all goes well I should be able to work out a date. Wife is going to visit her dad with the kid sometime soon.this is when I am planning on having everyone out. Would every one be ok with 50 yards then later we can adjust to 100+ yards later in the day for the range?  Would be a morning start and go til whenever.

Also would depend on weather, can't do hot with my MS. Finally got yard mowed yesterday and the whole time was thinking about how to set up the range. What day of the week works for most of you?

Just a quick update, i was offered the opportunity to shoot at another members property. He has a nice set of different distances on his range. Biggest plus is we would be out of the heat and in a air conditioned building! Sure cant beat that offer. Aiming in on mid to late July for date.
