Hello there, i'm looking for Airgunners near Lucedale MS that would be interested to have some shootouts, and of course also a place where to shoot. Right now i'm living inside City limits in an Apartment complex and there is no outside shooting whatsoever.
So mostly when I shoot, it will be my Red Ryder inside the Apartment for a distance of 17 feet. It would be really cool, to find someone and someplace in a distance of 20 to 30 miles to go too.

Iím in Laurel which is about 90 miles from Lucedale.  I wish we were closer.  Iíve met several GTA members and had a good experience every time. 

Have you checked the member map to see if someone is nearby?  This sub forum doesnít get much traffic so it might be more effective to PM someone you know is nearby.

Yes, that's to sad, Laurel is a little to much out of my reach. No haven't checked the member map lately, the last time I have checked it was about a year or so ago, and there was nothing in reach either, might have to hear around locally with word to mouth campaign I guess.
But I agree, to bad we couldn't be ant closer.

Did that Avator, the closest I can find are at least 50 plus miles away. There is not really much people here in south MS are into shooting Airguns or not members of this fine and wonderful Community. Well I have to find a public spot for myself I guess.

Yeah looks like it, in them 2 plus years i'am on here I haven't found a lot in southern MS, it looks like here people like their PS's.
And you hear them shooting them around all the time, so I guess as long as that don't changes, they will have not much interest in Airguns in common. Well I have to see if I can find somewhere around a public place in the woods, where I can shoot, and also have to clear up the laws up for that here in south MS.
It is getting old only to shoot your Red Ryder inside your Appartmend, or the Daisy 880 with 2 pumps and pellets, before we moved here I was shooting daily out to 50 yards with my Benjamin Trail NP2 and my Crosman Fire NP. That shows you how pampered I was then. LoL.
It's ok. At least I tried to reach out.

And Shooting Ranges are not very plentifull either around here. In about 50 miles radius I could find only 3 of them and the prices are just out of reach, like $20 for 2 hours or $200 for a one year membership. And I don't know how they would welcome Airgun Shooters too. So that is for now not an option either. Plus the travel for it all the time. That adds up pretty fast too.

I started up a Facebook group called Gulf Coast Airgunners to see if I can get some people out . There has to be a way to reach out to all that's buying air gun at Walmart and other sporting goods store. They are even being sold at Tractor supply. There is a fun shoot next month in this group that sounds like allot of fun if you guy are interested.

Hello, Noell.

Where would be the location of this event? What kind of guns? What I have to bring?
Right now i'm a very tight on funds, so if it wouldn't be to far away I could attend.
My Guns are at the bottom of my post, that's all I got right now.
Let me know what the location will be at, and the things I have get with me, except ammo, I have there the basics of pellets for mine. Thanks for the information about this, I really apprechiate it.

God bless you.
