Where to go near the metro to pattern the gun

6 posts in this topic

I have been looking around and talking to some of the gun ranges, but many aren't open to the public or don't provide facilities to pattern a gun. I don't know if they're pulling my leg or what. I do have a place to go if necessary, but its 2 hrs away. If I can I'd like to save a few hours of driving since all I am doing is sighting in. Its finally warm enough and I got 2 different chokes for my 20ga.

Has anyone found someplace within an hour of the metro? Any people members of a gun club that wouldn't mind a tag-along? I'm looking to do it this weekend. 4/20-4/22. I have all friday and all sunday available and some of saturday.

Metro gun club by 95th and 35 W. Went there last weekend. Costs three dollars. No. 5 shot or smaller allowed only.

My brother and I were the only ones at the pattern area on Saturday which is to the left of the trap and skeet area and no we aren't members. Good luck

NO SHOOTING AT CARLOS!!

There is no non-hunting related shooting allowed on state lands unless its a dedicated range. In the regs its called indiscriminate shooting. That includes clays and general plinking.

I'm looking into something else, but I may end up at Metro sunday if it doesn't work out.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
