CT here too. Shoot @ New Departure F&G in Cheshire primarily. Check out the State DEP range in Glastonbury. Open Sundays only. A poster here, Blackmanta, is a range officer there and trys to organize occasional black rifle shoots.

I shoot the pistol matches at the Connecticut State Rifle and Revolver Association range at Blue Trail. If I have time I'll go up to High Rock in Naugatuck to shoot the black rifle.

Used to shoot up at Blue Trails, but I joined the Niantic Sportsmans Club. Blue Trails was nice though. The sportsmans club is closer(10 mins), and I know a bunch of members. Buy my rifles through a buddy with FFL, or at Cubetas in Middlefield, and do a lot of business at E&B Sporting Goods in Salem. Bob is cool. It stinks though cuz he might go out of business soon! If anyone organizes at CT shoot, my black rifle and I will definitely attend!

Someone organized a CT shoot at the Glastonbury range over the summer. Unfortunatly I was on vacation and coldn't make it. I never heard anything about how it went. If anyone knows of a range where they don't mind rapid fire maybe we can get together. Blue Trail has those boards in front of the firing line so you can only shoot off the bench and you can't shoot rapid fire.

Do any of you shoot matches, would this be considered a shoot? Sounds like most of you are in the southern part of the state, I am in eastern by UCONN. [beer] Peter

Anyone else planning on doing the northeast meet in Albany in January?? [:)] The last one was great and B&J is as good as any we have around here!!![^]

If I am not in South America for work that week, I should be up there. Albany isn't too far a drive. 934

Ansonia Rod and Gun Club and at the indoor range in Bridgeport.

Racer hope you are around!! [:)] It would be great to get a good size CT contingent to go up to show support and meet, maybe it would help to get some sort of northeast shoot organized.[shock] For those that have not met the Avilla"s here is your chance ( although have not seen a post to say they are going to make it yet --- [but there local] HEHEHE!!)

The DEP range in Glastonbury is a good place to shoot. We don't mind rapid fire and targets like cans, bowling pins, and old microwaves are fine to shoot at (as long as it won't cause a ricochet). Also, as ZOG will attest, we get alot of SWAT and military guys there. If you're nice to 'em they might let you try out a few of their "toys." We're closing down soon because of the weather, but if some people want to put together a shoot on a Saturday or Sunday it might be fun.

I went to the AR shoot in Glastonbury this summer. Met some quality guys. Well worth the trip from NE CT. There is an indoor range in Woodstock CT at the Putnam Fish and Game Club. Right now it is 50' (10 shooting stations) but there are plans to lengthen it to 100 yards for high power.

Either Wolf's indoor range in Bristol, or High Rock range in Naugatuck...at least until I'm off the waiting list for Metacon in Simsbury.

Helldog, Yup, just alittle bit up the road from the 4 corners on 85. Yes their prices are still alittle high. I think the owner is trying to sell the place. Thinkin I just might go shooting their tomorrow!

You can visit a total of two times with a member in good standing. Then you have to join the club. It is located on Stone Bridge Rd. in Woodstock behind the Woodstock Fair.

Rag Metacon is a great club, heard they are trying to put 500 or 600 yd range in, would be great to have one in CT GW Used to party out in Norfolk, true New England country out your way!!! Chris Congrats on your first!! Not sure if I have met you --I do the pig roast now since Rod gave it up...
