Hi,


Is there anyone in levittown/bellmore/wantagh area who can suggest a place to plink? I have a Storm XT and would like to mount the scope or just use the open sights, but 15 bucks an hour to go top mitchel field is insane.

If you have a place and do it during the week and need shooting partner please do drop me a line

thanks

We were helping out a family member who needed severe intervention/encouragement to have a rather invasive operation, we were out of ny, so I never saw this post. I am interested if you are headed oiut and I found a shooting group that meets there.

http://www.escaaclub.com/field_target.htm

They seem very friendly or at least the gent I spoke with on the phone did. They also shoot at Smithtown. I have a few toys not tuned, or too fabulous, but for me at the moment they are fine. One day tuning and retriggering will be done. "Crosman Creep" is just horrid.

If you are near Wantagh perhaps we can get together one day and plot out a day or two for shooting. The range is a long ride, but it is what it is.

EBB's sometimes confuse me and I do not always see updates or forget where to look. This is user error, not a design flaw. Drop me a line if you wish to chat on line or meet up at a diner for a cup'o'caffeine.

Thanks fer the invite, but I did not see it, (my fault)

PS oh the surgery went well, took a chunk out of the inside of his ventricle, the size of 2 chicken McNuggets. He actually eventually called to thank  my wife for encouragement and arm twisting.

Hi DH,

well you are closer then where one of my kids goes to school, and every time I go there I try to get in "lead time" with a high school bud who lives there! If I can figure a way to roll it in with my trip to Syracuse as well as others  who have posted here, it might be doable. I can always go camp at Harriman over night. Give me an excuse to camp. Thanks fer the offer. I will be going out east from me to shoot at a range. The one that is near me and good enough to get some trigger time, is just tooo expensive. 500+ bucks first year, after that it is not cheap, but available. Out east it is cheap enough , plus gas. but to you is expensive, hence tying it to a trip to see the kid. Still it would be fun to come up your way!!

I will see how the summer progresses.

thanks fir the invite

Hey Brent, Hopewell junction is only 61 miles from me in Oceanside, NY. I travel 55 miles to Brookhaven range. I would love to meet up some time for some shooting. I know I'm late to this thread but it tough in Long Island to find a place to shoot.

I have been thinking about traveling to the Catskills Vernooy wild Forest or Big Indian wild Forest to find a nice quiet place with 125yards or more to shoot and do my Airgun reviews.but the laws regarding target shooting on state land is confusing. I've spent hours on Google maps trying to find an open area secluded enough to shoot. If anyone has any information regarding upstate NY and shooting Airguns or knows of a place I would be grateful for any information.

Unfortunately we lost our airgun brother Brent on 3 Feb 2016. I'm sure there are others here that would be glad to gather to shoot and enjoy sharing airgun experiences....and tall tales of those impossible shots.

Sorry to hear of Brentís passing,  :'(.  RIP.

Stephen, let me know if you find anything out regarding state land upstate, Iíll even drive, plenty of room in truck for gear!  Iím looking into some land out east by me for some long distance shooting, not sure what will come of it though, gotta convince the land owner first.  Otherwise, Iíll see you at BH range!
