I JUST MOVED TO THE STATE OF KANSAS RECENTLY (KANSAS CITY/TOPEKA/LAWRENCE AREA) AND WONDERED IF THERE WERE ANY LOCAL MEMBERS IN THE AREA? HAVE YET TO MEET A SINGLE FELLOW SHOOTER/COLLECTOR......
ALSO LOOKING TO FIND AN AR-15 FRIENDLY RANGE IN THE AREA......
ALSO, IF SOMEONE KNOWS THE LOCAL RULES/LAWS IN REGARDS TO "ASSAULT WEAPONS", (AR-15, SKS, G-3, CETME) I'D BE VERY INTERESTED IN ANYTHING YOU MAY KNOW............
PLEASE HELP ME MAKE SOME NEW FRIENDS AND MAYBE SHOOTING BUDDY, I AM NEW TO THE AREA AND HAVE YET TO MAKE ANY FRIENDS LOCALLY.......
MANY THANKS FOR YOUR ANTICIPATED HELP IN THIS MATTER......
I thought Kansas was so flat that the issue wasn't finding a range, but rather finding something that would serve as a backstop.
No knock on Kansas. I used to live in the Texas Panhandle. It's so flat there that you might have to drive 15 minutes just to get out of sight.
I used to live there. You need to become a member of the Capital City Gun Club (5 miles west of Topeka) and the Mill Creek Rifle Club (about 1/2 hr west of KCKS) ASAP!
Ed Krasny (785-232-1894) is your contact at Cap City, Dick Harper (913-432-7445) same at Mill Creek.

Kansas is VERY evil black rifle friendly. No CCW, though.
Jack, the Mill Creek rifle club is very nice. Ranges out to 600 yds. A little spendy to join, about $200 as I recall, but annual dues are much less. They are open 6am-10pm 7 days a week.They also hold high power matches. The Bench Rest National match was just held there also. Drop me a line if you need info. The range is located in Desoto KS, a few miles west of KC. Dennis
