I'm in northern IL. Round Lake Beach.

remo09: Juda is about a 2.5 hour drive for me. Not something I could do all the time, but it might be fun to meet up and shoot now and then.

iron: Whereabouts in WI are you?

I'm just west of Milw. I shoot my Tau 200 Senior on a 7m range in my basement to practice for indoor smallbore gallery matches and Highpower matches. Daniel Boone Conservation Club near Holy Hill has Saturday morning air pistol and rifle leagues during the winter. If any of you are smallbore shooters, we shoot in Waukesha on Thursday evenings Oct-Apr.

Jim,
The place you mentioned looks very nice and is very close to my home. But I shoot RWS 48 .177, not a serious match gun. Any activity use this kind of air rifle in your club? and when is the range open to public, I see they have a 200m range and indoor range mentioned in their front page.

Boone is a members only range, but you can stop out anytime to look around. I don't believe they have any "Hunter" air rifle leagues.

Im in Wisconsin, New Berlin. No one I know of shooting around here but I am very new to air guns other than my daisy powerline that took a rabit and a bunch of moles about 15 years ago, mom and dad were lax and let me hunt anything that hunted our landscaping lol. I mainly shoot target in my apartment and brother in laws back yard. I plan on getting a hunting license and going after small game asap. Currently learning how to shoot a Stoeger X20 and a Crosman Optimus(fiances gun).

What are the guns calling you? I am now looking for a cheap Chinese gun to learn on/plink with. Anyone in Wisconsin know of any places that sell such rifles? I am in the Milwaukee area but love road trips so driving is no big deal if there are cheap rifles to be found.

Note to all, if you have not been to Gander Mt.'s new Gun World they have an excellent selection of firearms and a fair amount of AG's. The prices on the AG's are pretty lousy though. For instance I was looking for a cheap dot sight for my 1377 and found Daisy's for sale for $5 ABOVE retail aka 20.00. Now I understand a brick and mortar selling for retail but above retail is a little ridiculous.

Stay warm WI.

Cheap chinese guns can be had at Walmart. There probally your best cheapest bet. The ruger air hawk and beeman duo caliber are a good start. Break barrel spring guns require a special hold. Look up the artillery hold and practice it. Also walmart carry's crosman premium ammo. And they do work great in most of the chinese guns.
Good Luck, shoot straight, God Bless.

We used to have one going at the range in Bristol Wisconsin.  I haven't been for a few years.  I'll have to check it out and see if there is still something going.

Hello everyone,

Smokin Paul from Milwaukee Wis.
Just got back into airguns after discovering all the awesome airguns that now exist. Bought a Crossman 760 and found out they are mostly plastic! Bought several more airguns and looking for someplace to shoot my .22 Crosman Titan Nitro.
Would love to get together with other air gunners if only for a cup of coffee to talk air guns. If you have a place to shoot I would love to hear about it.

Leave 'em in your smoke!

I am from Kewaskum, about thirty miles north of milwaukee. No shortage of places to shoot round here, the hard part is finding time. If anyone locally looking to buy a gun I am thinking of parting with a b21 177 caliber. I am always willing to meet other shooters who enjoy the hobby.

Last fall I bought some lake property in Mercer, WI. I'm up there once or twice a month during the summer. See my other post on this board.
