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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      I never made it out Monday was too tired from fishing Friday - sunday didn't feel like getting up early

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
