-------------------------

our second ftf shoot was a success. so by popular demand and for the ones who couldnt come in oct, im offering it again in apr. start planning now!


i enjoy bringing cyber posters together to share something in common, shooting! being retired military, i have a lot of free time to devote to my passion, shotguns and people. i enjoy it so much, that i bought this abandoned range a few years ago, just to have people come out and learn to shoot. it also gives the locals something to do after those long hard days on the farm. i live in va.. so i only visit up to mo. twice a year. so i'd like to offer you all a chance to come meet me at my place for a great little getaway which i promise will be worth your time.
i use to shoot on the navy shooting team, rifle, pistol, and shotgun. i was on the world champion navy skeet team that won gold in san antonio back in the 90's. i know the game.
to make your visit to the ftf meet worth the trip, im offering free instruction and coaching to all that sign up.
i prefer it to be 'bring your own shotgun and ammo,' but if you dont have either, i will ensure some will be here for you to borrow. and too, others will surely bring some to loan as well.
i will open my clubhouse for free as well.
it has a kitchen, so anyone is welcome to use it to cook. i cant cook for you guys....i'll be teaching on the range, so if you want to bbq or eat grub, bring your own food and cook it yourselves.
the range parking lot is big enough for campers. i dont have sewage, but i do have electricity and water hookups. bring your extention cords and hoses. so if you want to bring a camper to save on motels, feel free. pitch a tent too if youd like.
i dont have a real gas bbq grill, i only have an old girl scout pit, so someone will need to bring one if they want to grill.
the clubhouse is knotty pine, has running water, toilet, heat and ac.

weather is always the stick in the mud, so we all really do need to plan this as a weekend event. banking on one day is a gamble. so plan it as a weekend getaway and enjoy some of the sites around here if it rains on 19 apr. if you can get here friday, it will give us wiggle room. if you leave monday morning, even better. but i understand most of you must return for work.tickets are 50.00. the reason you get tickets in advance is i must order targets by the pallet. a pallet of targets is 1 ton and costs approx 650.00. it needs to be ordered a month in advance to be on site for the shoot. as you can see, if only 5 come, im out almost 400.00 with targets sitting. this is why im trying to get 10 guys to come to these meets. it makes the pain less. so kick around ftf and see who else you can get to come.
bring 10 boxes of shells.
as you can see, with the costs going to targets, the match and trophy is free.
this match is designed for beginners to get a feel for the sport on a budget. of course if you can shoot, come as well! but to ensure there are no ringers, the top score must shoot against me in the last event if they want to win; because, i shoot in proxy for last place. if i win, last place wins the match. so dont be scared away over a match. its a lot of fun.
so get out there in the ftf forums and send people this direction.

i have to decide how we will do this.... if the ones who've done this already need to come on their own day or own weekend? if we lock in the next match with people who've been here already....it makes no room for new guys wanting to learn. we need to discuss this.
do we need to have a prepaid shooter weekend meet AND another weekend for new shooters? i dont mind. let me hear your ideas.
or...since some of you shot already...come saturday or sunday and have range 1 to yourselves?

good thing about sunday noon is...steakhouse isnt open on sunday...so we can stay and shoot way into the night LATE....and eat from the kitchen on site or on the campfire.

Wife and I each have a vote for a two-day weekend event. Everyone is there Saturday morning and ready to rock! Even when not shooting, there is a whole lot of fun to be had in the Club House and interacting with others.

Gotta do the steak house Saturday night, but I'll get a heckuva bonfire going to cook over Sunday!
