    Oops lafayette indiana
    There is a local range open to the public on the weekends. On us 231 south of romney indiana, thought that might be a good place kinda nuetral. I was thinking pistol , rifle, and we could get in the trap and skeet if anybody wanted to.
    I grew up with hearing my grandpa say, there no such thing as strangers just friends u aint meet yet. Its in Linden indiana , i could get there early and kinda secure a bay to shoot in.

    Does the place your thinking of allow for more reactive type targets than just punching paper??

    I'm game...i aint all that good, but i like to shoot. (read: burn powder...cause i cant hit much ;))

    If nothing else its a chance to meet folks, possibly shoot different guns and at the worst its an excuse to drink cold beer!

    NE of Warsaw, you talking about Tri Lakes F&W?

    Range was clean but small IIRC.

    Winamac has more space but gets a lot of shooters. IIRC they're closed on Mondays too (but don't charge like the range at Huntington- which is dirt cheap, and a bargain..........but not "free").

    I shoot Elwood CC, sometimes Bass n Bucks, but most times Winamac (if not on a private individual's range close to my home).

    IIRC?!!?

    Yeah, I do a lot of shooting at tri county, but paper punching is as far as it goes. During the weekends it gets pretty busy and the idiots come out of the woodwork.

    Huntington is nice...but thats paper punching only as well. $4 a day with a range master on duty, 10 minute shooting sessions with a called cease fire to change targets.

    I hunt a small place kinda near there, so cuz and I went by and checked Tri Lakes out once. Looked like a decent duck spot, but not the place for late season yoting ;)

    That be the "IIRC" ;)

    Winamac doesn't have a RO per se', but they have a DNR person there to keep the riff raff out.

    The ranges are all paper only..........but I've smoked a few plastic water bottles now and then, but I always put my trash up (even my paper targets) and have for 30 yrs. That might let me get by with some rule bending, has so far.......but haven't tried it in about a yr.

    Could get some new hardarse RO type.............that isn't friends with my dad ;)
