Bad weekend for me Ken But maybe some time in the New Year we can get together for a round of sporting clays. Thats always a blast and maybe I can rape someone for a few bucks$$$$ Plus some asshole scratched my baby Jag, and we need to do business

Did you shoot the AR15 in GAT or Gunworld or both? Also could you tell me how much the range fee is at Gunworld?

I found the following:

Dunes Rifle & Pistol Club
Hobart, IN
219-942-4514
little bit SW of Gary, IN

Warsaw Rifle & Pistol Club
Warsaw, IN
574-267-1972
further SW of Gary, IN probably too far.

Looks like Buffalo Pit is our best bet if theyre open.

That place in Indianna is pretty cool. It's a State Park I believe. I went there once last year. Just make sure you guys are all legal and stuff cause they watch you like a hawk out there. It's pretty far too.

Have a good time guys. My gun is still down.

Thanks bro,

I'll keep an eye on the thread to see when your going. If I can get away I'll go buy some ammo and come out.

I can probably worm my way down there. 80 to exit 23 I think... into town and take Rt 6 towards the Pit. Theres a sign on the road where to turn in. These may not be the exact directions but I can find it.

How many are going ?

That place in IN is a state park, I dont think it is the place SW of Gary. I know it is down that road that you go south on to get to that dragstrip that one of the stunt groups rented last summer to stunt on and dragrace privately. It is about 20 or so miles south of Shererville IN. Cant make it this weekend Ken, gots to do the old unpacking/cleaning/staking out squatter's rights on the shiny new doublewide.

Oooooh, look at the pretty colors

Shootin'?

Shootin'!

I love shootin'! ! ! Well, almost as much as riding & racing.

Anyone go to CCKC (Conservation Club of Kenosha Co.) ?

Right over the border in Bristol Wisconsin --> http://www.bristolranges.com/contacting_cckc.htm

If you don't, you should check it out. I know, I know. . . "It's too far of a drive." But not really. It's about 10 minutes (fine, 15 TOPS) past Great America. Exit Hwy, C and head west (left) towards Rt. 45. . . Turn right (north) on Rt.45. Drive a whopping minute (or a mile) and turn left on AH. Ta da! You're there!!! On your left (Saturdays and Sundays) is the rifle, pistol and shotgun range. One block further on your right (Wed. Sat. & Sun) is the shotgun range! Trap or Skeet or 5 stand ! ! ! Very nice folks and unbelievable prices!

For handguns or small bore (non military/assault rifle - whatever, it's a big corp. and they don't want the hassle) to med. rifles/ I really like Bass Pro Shops in Gurnee. Very clean and not too bad of a price. $8.00 an hour. (But they also have frequent visitor punch cards and once they get to know you, they really don't monitor your time that closely!

Lastly, if anyone has ANY more information on the "Buffalo Range" please let me know.

I've heard of it but have never been. Where is it? How much? What can you shoot there? Is it worth it/fun?!

Thanks in advance ! ! ! !

Its in Ottawa, IL. If youre in the north burbs youre definately much closer to the WI range. We'll have to hit that one sometime.

Ive heard rumblings that the Buffalo Pit might be closed for the winter.. what kind of range is that ?.. I believe it was $20 for the day to shoot with the longest shot being 100 yards, and theres only 2 lanes at 100.

How far can you shoot at this one in WI ?

Im in WI all the time on business(damn near every other day) Ill have to pack my stuff some day and take an afternoon off and do some plinking.

I wish I had some weekends free but the next few are taken up with the holidays and ice fishing trips!
