    I'm looking for some mid-long range places to shoot/learn at in the Fort Leavenworth area. I'm a responsible shooter who cleans up after himself (I usually bring trash bags with me to public ranges to clean up others and my mess). I enjoy shooting and understand the need for responsible care of the places that we have left to shoot at.
    If anybody has any information on places to shoot at or trainng in the Fort Leavenworth area that is available to me I would greatly appreciate it.
    I should be there next week but I will be busy with my household goods getting moved in as well as inprocessing for school and such.

    Very Respectfully,
    Stefan

    I'd contact the local Rod and Gun Club for Fort Leavonworth.

    The club's membership is over 380 and growing. The club is family oriented, so bring your entire clan and join us.

    For more information call 684-1703 and for the kennels call 684-3461.

    ther's a controlled range right down the road called parma woods, but you gotta pay and the range guys lean towards the third reich side sometimes "you're shooting too fast NO RAPID FIRE"

    There's a Missouri conservation range near gallatin, MO. It goes out to 200 yds. There's also many others that are only 100. Mill Creek gun club in Desoto Ks has 500 yds, but its not open to the public. I know of some other places if you're willing to travel a couple hundred miles. PM me if you want directions or any other info.

    I "had" access to some private land that shoots out to 1200 yards, however it's a bit underwater right now as of the last time I was out there which was 1 week ago. We have't gotten much rain lately so i'm hoping it dries out really quick. I'm going to keep tabs on it to see if it gets better, once it's accessable i'll be heading out there for sure.

    Sounds like some nice shooting once it dries out.

    Let me know if you need a shooting partner.

    Well I'm at Leavenworth now. I have to inprocess, take care of housing and transportation along with a bunch of other stuff.
    I'm still waiting on my optics but I was told that my rifle is here waiting for me!

    Post it back on here if you find anything near leavenworth. I work up there and drive all the way to st. joe, mo to shoot. Parma Woods is a nice place but has to many rules. The bullet hole has to many dumb kids running around. I'm almost to the point that i'm going to use my VA home loan to buy a big field to shoot in and live in a tent with my toys.

    Re: Fort Leavenworth KS????

    That IS the place to practice brother! meaning the monthly IDPA matches. One thing I've learned in competition is to never be intimidated or worried bout gettin yer butt kicked, you will always do way better than you think, and the others will always do worse!

    oh and yes it's no problem to go to watch, just have to sign a release saying that if I was to blast out of my bay and hit you that you wont sue Bear Creek

    I agree but it's always good to do a little recon on an objective before you dive in.

    Not sure you got it, there are 4 months every year that have 5 weekends. July and October are the only ones left this year. So it's feasible to hold a match on the 5th weekend of the month...this month.

    I'm at Leavenworth and will be heading to Parma tomorrow to shoot the Sako, and Remington.
    I would like to reconfirm my base line on the Serbu but I doubt they will let me (I changed out the rings to some better ones).

    My internet is finaly up but no household good for a bit (the computer screen is sitting on a cardboard box with the keyboard and mouse).

    I need to pick up a 1/2 socket to torque down the rings (all my stuff is in trans) so I'll probably be there at about 11ish.

    Is there a caliber restriction out there?

    Re: Fort Leavenworth KS????

    I know of one shooter on this site "srv565s" who has told me that he's shot his 50 at Parma, just make sure that it's ball ammo. I don't own a .50, nor have I personally witnessed somebody shooting one. Other than that, I don't know of any caliber restrictions. I would say bring it, if they say no, then they say no. I'm shooting tomorrow, getting ready to load up some more rounds here in a few. Wanna meet up?

    Branden, had a great time! Thanks!
    Looks like I need to get the press back together, start reloading and shoot a lot to get some skill back!

    Likewise, I had a good time as well. I just always wish that I was allowed to shoot prone when i'm there, I could shoot a lot better if they allowed it. That Sako rifle is a snazzy rifle, feel great to shoot, and I love that action..so smooth!

    Sorry that I couldn't stay as long as you did, still didn't get anything done at the house once I got back. I ate lunch, and my in-laws called said they were headed to the lake, so the girls and I changed into our suits and off we went again!

    We'll get together again sometime and shoot somewhere from the prone, and somewhere that the big .50 can bark. I need to get a lot more practice for those matches coming up in August that i'm planning to attend.

    We might have to talk about matches. I would like to see and do some shooting. It might be hard since I'm working on a masters while going through CGSC but a couple would be nice!
