I am all alone here in Fond du Lac also guys.Airgunners seem to be as scarce as members of my other shooting types.

i know. i live in casco, just east of greenbay. i get my tank filled in g.b., and so far, i've only heard of one other airgunner in the area. can't get the dive shop to tell me who he is, though. not that it really matters much. i drive a truck for a living and i'm gone most of the time. no time for a social life. by the time i get home, i've usually got a "honey-do" list a mile long, especially in the summer. i still manage to get to the range quite a bit,but, not so much hunting lately. seems like every time i've been home lately, the weather has been &^^&.

I've been on these boards for over a year and just now noticed this thread. I'm in north east IL, but if any of you are getting together and wouldn't mind a flatlander, I'd love to come up and do some shooting/hunting. Just shoot me a P.M. since I almost always forget to check this part of the forum.

I was up there icefishing at the end of Feb.  Minona and Wabesa.  Had to leave the day the storm rolled in, so missed out on Mendota.   I wanna get back for some summer fishing on the Madison chain.  Spent a lotta good days up there (Kegonsa and Wabesa), as a kid, in a bus camper.

I live in Waupaca where I belong to the local Conservation Club which has a very good outdoor range.  I also set up a 7m range in the basement for fun and games.  On the down side, I also have a home in Sheboygan where airgun firing is prohibited.  Sheboygan will allow airsoft guns under ridiculously strict rules.

I've always found that twice as good costs four times as much.

I caught my first ever muskie in the Madison Chain (back in the 90's) and I've been fishing for them ever since.

Hey all,
Pleasant Prairie area, There is a Field Target club in Bristol called BAGA. Right now it shut down for work on the Field Target Range but it will be up and shooting by the end of August. Supposed to be a great place to shoot.

BAGA is a phenomenal place to shoot. I started shooting FT there and really enjoyed their course. Once they get it back up and running anyone who can make it should definitely come out. Top notch guys a really great place to be. I believe the sight in range will have up to or maybe over 100 yards so all of you long range bench shooters feel free to come out too!

Cornwellkidd here dead center of wisconsin I live on Castlerock lake. I can shoot out my back just about anything I would like to have a mile of woods out the back door. I have been looking for a tuner close for a gamo would like a G4 trigger installed also I don't want to do it myself. If I break a small part I find that there no replayments Per Tuna.

Welcome from WI.

I did a 5 year stint at Walker Stainless in New Lisbon.  Aiming to get a new trigger myself, just haven't pulled the trigger on it yet :)

I'll tell you that it is not Near the problem, that you may think.   If you know anyone that is halfway mechanically inclined, you 2 will easily do it.
If not, and you want to spend a buck... you can contact Mike Mellick, in Iowa, and send it to him for some work.  He's a member here, and has a gate here as well.   Look for the Flying Dragons Air Rifle Gate, and ask Mike personally.

I'm here in Belgium, WI. Been shooting in the basement - just waiting to get outside and get acclimated to my springer rifles.

Hi all, Saukville checking in here, just north of Milwaukee. I don't mind shooting in my basement but wish their was an indoor range close by. once spring arrives the opportunities will open up.
