Where to go near the metro to pattern the gun

Recommended Posts

Powerstroke

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.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
