I live in Lowell, but am happy to drive up to about an hour or so to make it to regular meets. Ocassionally the three hour drive could doable.

I see this post is almost two years old but I'm in Tewksbury, exit 39 off 495.  Are you still in Lowell?

Hello, im in bellingham. I shoot my back yard and hunt in the woods around mit neighborhood. Plenty of opportunity for some good target shooting, people have already set up makeshift ranges for powder burners. I went up to Hudson for the first time a couple weeks ago. Had a great time. I'm planning on going back up this sat. Evening or Sunday morning. I'm very interested an indoor league and in doing some field target

Hi fellow Massholes- I'm in Barre- out in the sticks  on 26 acres with 100yd. backyard range- My only problem is my woman not being acceptable to gatherings, but I could bring in 1-2 people at a time this summer - only other problem is me working weekends. I have 9 pcp & 3 springers & air supply & love to shoot.

I bought the annual membership at NEAG after researching the indoor range at Riverside. My two favorite airguns are against the indoor rules. Both my PCP and my springer are .22 models. I have several friends and neighbors who are Riverside members. Two of the neighborhood kids who learned to shoot in my back yard many years ago shoot skeet up there and one just became a Framingham cop.

Shooting 50 yards from the bench with the PCP is fine. I really need the most practice at 40 and 50 yards. I have 25 yards at home.

 I'm a teacher, so I can make some late afternoon shooting sessions. Tuesdays are my shortest days.

I'm getting really tight groups with the GTO 11.75g pellets with both my Buccaneer PCP and my Prowler NP. There is only a difference of a few clicks on the scope from CPHP 14.3g. There range is only 50' so It's hard to predict longer distances.

 I'm sure you know the kids from my neighborhood. They tend to shoot skeet as a group. Blaise, Brendon and Joe.

Well all right then. Those GTO's are flying well for ya.  I recognize the name Blaze sounds familiar...ya don't forget that name quick.   It's probably best to stick with lead for outdoors anyways.  A little heavier is always good in the wind.  It would be interesting to see how they do at the 50 yds.

If ya ever want to touch base you can reach me there.

Guys, if you are going to meet-up anytime this spring/summer let me know. I’m near Natick/Framingham. Time allowing I’d love to meet other airguners nearby.

Stay warm,

I’m planing to check it out one of these weekends, a bit of a drive for me but I’d like to see their facilities. The closest outdoor range to me is the Wayland Gun and Rod club, has anyone tried it out before?

Wow, that range is only 4 miles from my house. I never knew it was there. It is interesting they mention airguns on one of their pages. The application seems to want your FID card number, so it rules out an airgun only membership. I could get an FID if I spent the money on classes, I just choose not to.

 New England Airgun has a decent 50' range and they keep the place warm all winter. So far the yearly membership has worked out well for me with the gun and pellet discounts I get.

Isn’t NE a lead free range, how is their pricing on the lead free pellets?

Thanks,

The same prices and deals as Pyramyd for the most part.
The range is lead free due to board of health requirements.
