Re: Missouri shooters

Thanks, I do know about big piney but I wasn't too interested in what they have going on on the 17th. I was hoping to stretch out a little more and not participate in a organized "bench rest" competition. Their tactical rifle comp on the 18th interests me, but I'm unavailable on the 18th.

Heard it's a pretty good deal. </div></div>

Looked all through their site and yes it does look cool. I will have to go check them out once college starts back up but unfortunately, I didn't see a course to teach the marksmanship say out to 800 or 1k. The Designated marksman goes out to 300 and sniper 1 starts with being good at an 800 cold bore and making weather adjustments.

That is what I need.

Re: Missouri shooters

Is anybody a member at bullseye gun & rod club in Fenton Mo? Found it on the internet. But no phone number. Does anybody know it and what it cost to be a member? Thanks

Re: Missouri shooters

Was out at Parma Woods for the first time with my old man and he said that is one of the best outdoor ranges he has ever been to and was in town for the weekend. I live in downtown KC and don't mind the drive out to Waldron but I wanted to see if there are any ranges that go out beyond 100 yards. I have heard of Mill Creek down in Olathe but wasn't sure if it is private and or if they are accepting new members.

Any ideas where to to shoot past 100 yards in the KC area?

Re: Missouri shooters

ok this sucks, I joined this thread 2 years ago and still havent hooked up with anyone to shoot with or a place to shoot past 100 yrds. I thought for sure when I got my rifle built and saw how many KC people were here that I would get into a group who went somewhere to shoot on a regular basis.

Re: Missouri shooters

Big Piney has had several matches over the last 2 years. Did you go to any of those? I've hooked up with several guys, however not very many shoot anywhere near as regularly as I do.

I have private land about 40minutes east of my place (i'm in NE KC) that I can shoot any distance up to 1200 yards, or some odd increments up to 2600. I would love to be able to take a group, but the owner doesn't want that, he's told me I can bring 1 or 2 at a time, as long as i'm there he's cool with it. He's .50cal friendly too, which is a major plus. With the weather cooling off, and hunting seasons coming up, planning trips out there gets a little more tricky.

Re: Missouri shooters

All the KC guys, i'm going to be at Parma Saturday 9/18, somewhere around 11 to 12 most likely. I know it's only 100 yards, but trigger time at 100 yards max is better than no trigger time at all.

This time of year is the best time of year to train up. Winds get a little hairy, and not a lot of people like to go out and shoot when it's cold. I was out today shooting in the wicked wind we had. Shot 100, 520, 668, and 1000. 1K was less successful than 668, but still 5 out of 12 shots on a 12" WIDE target with 15-18mph wind is good enough for me!

It gets pretty windy out there. I still need to take the chrono and Sako out to Parma for load development!

This next week is bad but would you like to try and hit up next week sometime?

Anytime....bring it! I just went over to the FDAC thread and jumped up on my soap box again. You don't have to ask me if we can shoot, tell me when we're going, and we'll go. Asking me if I want to go shooting is like asking me if I have a unhealthy love for McD's french fries and Frappe's.

I'm trading a monitor for a larger piece of steel, 16" by 24", going to have it setup 24" wide so that wind issues at 1,000+ don't only result in a miss. That 12" wide target at 1,000 yards gives very little margin of error.

Re: Missouri shooters

Yep, it's going to be 1/2" mild steel. He's going to put the necessary hanging hardware on there for me, and the stand as well.

It's going to be nice having a larger target to shoot out there. Maybe then we can go a little further back and start doing 1200+. We'll have to figure out a way to see where we're hitting though.

Damn you. I want to get a full day of work in to get more of that suppressor money in. Sigh.......decisions, decisions, decisions.

BTW, .300WM? With your shoulder? C'mon now, be realistic, lol. The Serbu with the 800gr Spotter tracers kicks less!

New range in SW MO?

A friend and i have been working on a business plan to open a new gun club in the Springfield, MO area. We are working on getting our NRA certification to teach classes as well as obtaining type 1, 2, 6, and 8 FFL. In a perfect world, it would have a 500 yard range as well as smaller ranges for archery, sighting, trap, and indoor for pistols. What kind of interest is there in the area? What would local enthusiasts like to see in order to ensure frequent customers? Any input from people in the area would be great!

I live in Lebanon. Id like to see 500+ for rifle, trap.skeet, pistol (indoor/outdoor) wouldnt matter. I do believe if you build it they will come. Springfield is big enough for plenty of shooters. But the outlying should draw in alot of shooters for you. Id like to see this happen. I like Big Piney but I havent gotten out there much this last year.

Also if this looks like you can make it happen, then start a site with a forum so ppl can talk about it and get the word out for you.

Re: New range in SW MO?

I'd call Scott (El Presidente) and bend his ear a little (he likes to talk). I'd imagine that the folks in SW MO have similar requirements to Central MO, and Scott has a pretty good handle on what our members want to see in a club. He might be able to give you some ideas.

I would like to see any long range facilities, the more the better. Running monthly comps (not on the same weekends as Piney) would be cool.

Agree completely. Go as long as you can. Also, get your FFL and sell high end rifle/pistol and reloading. Get good optics brands like USO,NF, S&B etc

That's a pretty tall order LOL

I hit the Sedalia Rod and Gun Club range on black Friday. Nothing further than 100yds but not having a RO was great as I was able to run CQ carbine drills all day long. Ran into three other members who were all on the 50yd range while I stayed on the 25 doing stuff like pistol transitions, multiple target engagements (box drill) and shooting on the move. Still on the look out for something closer than BP for longer range shooting though.

Re: New range in SW MO?

Four of us showed up to shoot. It was 19 degrees out so it was a very good day to get some cold weather data. The wind was gusting pretty good at times from both the left and the right. I shot a Savage model 12 varmint in .223 loaded with 69 grain matchkings, and wasn't doing too bad until the 600. There the wind blew my bullets all over the target.

Re: New range in SW MO?

Hello everyone. Shooter from KC here also interested in some long range precision shooting. Sounds like the place in Marshall would be good to go. Hey MidwestPX (Ty), it's me Eddy. I met you at Lake City range right before deer season and I bought a converted mag for my 6.8 AR from you. Good to see you here!
