I've seen the map grow with more users over the past year or so.

We should organize an "airgun day at the range" and we all show up at Lake City or something. They have a pretty nice 100 yard range there. Pigeon Hill up by St. Joe is an unmanaged range, if that is preferred. I've never had a problem at Lake City though, and it is quite a bit nice than Pigeon Hill.

I'm perfectly happy to meet at someone's property too, though, and would even volunteer a rack of ribs or a bucket of beans or slaw to make it a day. I just don't have enough room to do it at my house :)

I'm more than happy, too, to bring my rangefinder and chronograph, if anyone wants to use those tools for refining their guestimating and tuning! I've also got a torque wrench for scopes, some nice molykote77, and such...in other words I'm happy to help anyone in any capacity I can, with the tools I have available!

As soon as it warms up a little...

I believe there are also unmanaged ranges in Weldon Springs (near STL) and Jackson (near Cape Girardeau. And possibly in/near Eureka?

I'm up for a get-together this year.  If someone is willing to help I might even be willing to host one.  I'm located close to the middle of the state and have 20 acres to shoot on.  My first order of business this year is to get a house built on it and then I will be open to suggestions.


I'm hoping I can get an actual response from someone / anyone, this time.... I'm "new" here, both on GTA and in MO. (3yrs - through marriage, am from MT.).... we (wife & I) can travel to wherever in MO. for a get together and shoot... pretty well can meet anytime, Except on a Saturday.... which, I know probably throws a "monkey wrench" into it for getting together with most shooters, who ARE available on Saturdays, Only(??)... Basically, I'm / we're available for a "shoot" most anyday(s) of the week except for Saturdays.

I'm retired, and my wife just took an early retirement.. so we're both "game" to meet others in the sport... we're in the SW portion of the state, east of Branson, near Forsyth... if there is anyone in this area, interested in meeting up... or even down, into NW AR. - Harrison and surrounding area.      I've put twelve(12) other posts on here, and so far.. no direct response, so not sure what to think about all this, ????..... Anyone "out there"???  :-\

Oooops !!.... Don't know what I did wrong(??)... I pasted two "quotes" and replied to them, under the quotes, but it didn't post anything that I wrote... ????

Anyway, long story short... am "game" to meet up with any other serious air gunners for a "shoot"... I (and my wife) am from the SW, MO. area (east of Branson) and FREE TO TRAVEL, WHEREVER to a meet.... any day, Except Saturdays... sorry.   I have various Multi-Pumps, Springers (break barrels, under & side levers) and PCP's in all four small bores, .177, .20, .22 & .25... also an assortment of paper and steel reactionary targets that I could bring along.   

IF... there is anyone in the SW portion of the state (from Springfield "AREA", and south... on down to the Harrison,AR area) please get in touch with me here, if interested in meeting up.. or at least let me know that "your out there" and maybe we can work something out.   

I am retired, and my wife recently took an "early retirement", so if any of you have wives that are even remotely interested in shooting together with us, my wife would love to come along and be involved as well... and has a few airguns, herself.... although, "new" at this sport.. she wants to really get some fun target time, in... and would love to meet other women around who are into it, as well... so if any of you guys have wives or girlfriends with an interest and wish to participate in a fun shoot and meet new friends... we're "up to it",  but it won't happen if we don't know who's "out there".   ;)     Hope to get some "feed back" from any and everyone... thanks.    Shoot straight and may you always hit what your aiming at.   ;D ;D

Hi There...VERY INTERESTED in getting together with other air gunners in MO. (read my other posts).... Can Travel ANYWHERE, ANYTime, EXCEPT for Saturdays   :-\ .  Would LOVE to hear from you, and meet up... am retired and wife is recently so... and also has a desire to get into this as well, and has several airguns of her own, already.... at least she wants to try.  ;) ;)      Hoping to hear from you.... ANYBODY..... it's fun shooting by "yourself"... but, Not the same as spending a day (or two?) shooting & sharing the fun (& competition) with like minded new friends.

Another option,
Shane Seals here and I own the Josephville Gun Shop in Wentzville, Mo. On Friday mornings I host and indoor air rifle shoot. We shoot pretty much every Friday unless it is a holiday week end. We shoot the Gammo target at 33 feet indoors not many rules. Some brace off the door frame and some shoot free hand. Usually 10-15 shooters, we start at 9:00am and quit at noon. There is no cost involved. I supply the targets and coffee and some one usually brings donuts. Bring your rifle and pellets or shoot one of ours. It is all about bragging rights. This is a very informal shoot, mostly a bunch of us old retired/retarded guys but some of the younger folks also. It started out as something to do inside during the winter for a few rimfire shooters and has grown from there and they will not let me stop it. All are welcome if it gets too big we can just shoot longer.
 I am about 40 miles west of St. Louis Missouri just outside of Wentzville not far from the General Motors plant. Take Hwy 70 to exit 212 which is Hwy A  go north on Hwy A to the third street on the right, Josephville road turn right I am 2.6 miles down on the left at the corner of Josephville and Wortman roads. 1561 Josephville road. call first if you are traveling far to make sure we are shooting that Friday 636-332-5450

I am waiting till the weather warms up and see where the home construction will be.  If I am able to do this it will probably have to wait until late summer due to construction and moving.  I will let everyone know.  Thanks

I am new to GTA, but ready to put in some trigger time this spring. I live at the Lake of the Ozarks and enjoy a 25 yard range in the back yard with about four other friends that enjoy their air time. I would love to get together and meet some more shooters in the area(state). I will look into a larger venue in the area. I've heard of a decent unsupervised range in the area but have not found it yet. Let's keep the momentum up until we all get together.

Welcome, "Hangloose"...am pretty "new" on hear myself,  just a few months, now.   I and my wife, live in the SW portion... east of Branson about 30 miles.  We were invited up to Josephville,MO (just north of Wentzville, on I-70... west of St. Louis about 30 - 40 miles)... a few weekends ago to the Josephville Gun Shop, where a sizable "small" group of about 15 guys (& wives, to!) get together every Friday morning for a 10 meter Indoor shoot.... My wife an I Never have done 10 meter before,  and especially with "springers" that are just Not made for that style of shooting.... It was EMMMMbarrassing !!!.... to say the least.   :'(   But.... a Really Great bunch of fellows (and gals), and they let try (1st time for us) some pcp and single pump 10 meter guns.... WOW !... What a difference,  and because my wife and I drove for 4+ hours to get there... they held a 2nd shoot on Saturday morning..... Wonderful folks !!

Anyway.... just read your post, here.... and would Love to hear back from you in regards to getting together for a shoot.... "Have (air) Guns, Will Travel"   ;)      I'm retired, wife just took an "early" retirement... and looking for folks to shoot with.    We are BOTH, "new" to air guns since 2013... and so far... "we" only have 19 to play with...... this isn't a "sport".... it's a "disease" !!!   ::)

Please write reply back.... I generally watch this page at least three times a week... so, will reply quickly to you... or, Anyone else who wishes to chime in.... always on the lookout for new shooting friends.

Outlaw, where are you east of Branson? I work in Branson and live about 20 miles east on 76.

Maybe near Bradleyville?
