I'm curious about competitive shooting. I am still pretty new to handguns but that's more what I'm interested in than rifles.

I guess my question may be too broad but any info will help. I'm in the Detroit area and want to know if there are any competitions or anything held around here? Or where would I find info on types of competitions held in Michigan? Or anything related to anything.

Like I said, I'm still new and plan to take a few more classes to hone in my skills. I don't want to get into anything that involves using a multi thousand dollar set up either. Just looking for competitions with a wide range of entrants with all types of handguns.

Mi Gun Owners just had this discussion.

Blue Water Sportsman Club has something going on

Wayne County Sportsman Club has a weekly .22 shoot, but I would not recommend it. That's where the guy had a ND right in front of me, with the muzzle pointed somewhat towards me. Safety takes a back seat to being one of the good ole boys.

Taylor Pistol Club has several competitions, I'm thinking of signing up there. I've competed in their PPC match, which was a blast.

Washtenaw has a LONG rifle range. I've never shot there, heard mixed reports on how they welcome newcomers.

Detroit Sportsman Club (north suburbs), is supposed to have weekly competition of some sort.

I was just actually going through the mgo forums. I've shot skeet and sporting clays at dsc before. I want to try their 3d archery shoot. Their pistol range times are way too limited for me to make it out there.

I'll keep looking around at the mgo forums and see what's up. Thanks.

I looked into the bowling pin shoot in Taylor. Thats the competition that would probably be one I'd like the most. Unfortunately one of their rules is that you have to use hollow points if you're using a 9mm.

I can't afford to shoot 150-200 rds of hollow points at a time. And my only other handgun is a .357 5rd revolver. Don't think I'd be able to reload fast enough to compete

""Washtenaw has a LONG rifle range. I've never shot there, heard mixed reports on how they welcome newcomers.""
above from post #2

You cant delete a range/club for the actions or lack of action(s) of one or two individuals.

I belonged to a club that had a board member (former Pres) that was just an xxxxxxxxxx.

He liked to work at the clubs 'sight in days' the week before deer season. He was just a ja55. A couple of us finally asked "how many potential good members did he run off" by his mouth?? Never got an answer and he is one reason why that is a former club that I belonged to.

This was/is(im sure) a shotgun club that happens to have a rifle range. Im sure there are many members that know of what I speak, in that regard.

You're right.

I need to step up finding a new club. Discovered one just a few miles from my house that I'd never heard about. Worst part of that club, no indoor pistol range. Friend took me to his club which is a bit of a drive, but the rifle ranges are nicely set up. Biggest problem, apparently some old timers freak out if you're carry firearm is exposed???!!!

Get hold of MI Open Carry and have them come to the club and do a presentation. Or email and have a supply of their handouts that explains the OC laws, or lack of em.

Private property rights. As it was explained to me the board voted to keep their current rules in place.

Agreed. Need to find a different club of real shooters not hippocrits.

Thoe are the kind that keep anti-gun politicians in power.
