Where to Shoot 12ga?

I recently got a Mossberg 590 12ga Shotgun. I was hoping to take it out to Buffalo Range but they are closed. Where else can I shoot it. I know you guys sometimes shoot clay but she is a 20 inch barrel with a pistol grip/ folding stock so I don't think it would be much good for me to go out to shoot skeet.

Thanks in Advance.

lucky for you, ive been shooting differant loads...#5,1 once loads works pretty nice, havent seen what it does to a bird yet, but it shouldnt mess it bad i think, and it does good on clays.
to me its like shooting a 7 1/2 with a choked shotgun.

Ken,

Thanks for the advice on the loads but I was wondering where to go shoot?

Closest place I know for the Northern burbs is Bristol Wisconsin @ Kenosha county Sportman & conservation club.

Look, I can appreciate this. I was young too, I felt just like you. Hated authority, hated all my bosses, thought they were full of shit. Look, it's like they say, if you're not a rebel by the age of 20, you got no heart, but if you haven't turned establishment by 30, you've got no brains. Because there are no story-book romances, no fairy-tale endings. So before you run out and change the world, ask yourself, "What do you really want?"

I might take you up on that.

I am going to need some guidance as this is my first gun.

yeah no shit, theres that place we have been going to, need a thrower...and no problemo between us all youll be just fine, just remember the 1st rule.
treat a firearm as if it is loaded at times

which means keep your finger AWAY from the trigger, and NEVER point the muzzle at anything you DONT want to DISTROY!

Ok well all drunkeness aside. I'm in for the next time you guys go shooting, as long it is on a Sunday. I work on Saturdays

Just tell me what I need to bring. I'll change my stock back to the standard one instead of the pistol grip.
