Tried earlier this year but nothing came of it due to a lack of shooting locations. Anyone here have some private land in the area that is willing to host a shoot. I was thinking something in the lines of a cookout/shoot some time this fall. Does not have to be on private land (ie. a range) but somewhere where AR's and the like are welcome. Post'em if ya got em. If you are interested or would like to go pending the location put it here. Thanks!


ETA: I'm in the Cambria County. I'll look into renting the range at my local sportsmans but I need to know how many people would be interested in going, or chipping in a small donation. If you are willing to donate you wouldn't have to do so until the date of the shoot. I can pay for it in advance. I also need to find out how much it is... will post an update when I know.

Only public ranges in the are I know of are game commission run, which either allow one single rounds to be loaded into the gun or prohibit any "assault" style rifles.

Does your club allow you to set up multiple targets at close range for CQB practice?

Whatever you guys decide I am probably in.

depends,if its not buzy....ive set up many cqb targets in the past...when we had the rifle range too ourself.its a really great club....follow the simple rules, practice gun safty...and you can do pretty much as you pls....full auto is allowed durring the daytime hrs 10 - 3 m-ths.if i can talk to the club prez...it might be doable...i dunno the time frame tho....its the only club ive found that dumping a few 100 rnds down range on semi in a few miutes is a ok....we have 2 kill houses for pistol cal and shotgun...thats fun!lmk

how far from Philly is your club? I have been looking for a club that lets you shoot CQB and the shoot house is a huge bonus. It's sounds like a place I would love to join.

Do they have a website?

Thanks, Bill

thezman beat me to it...its VERY EASY to get to from philly...one u get off the hbg. west exit,it takesabout 10 min to get to.is so friggin easy to then get back on the tp....
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 4:48:27 PM EDT
Thanks for the info , I just checked out the website and it seems like a pretty good range the only problem is I got the directions on mapquest and it 106 miles from my house. It a little under 2 hours away which I don't completely mind but I don't think it will be worth it to join. I would like to go up there one of these days and check it out though. If any of you guys in the Philly area want to go over there some time within the next couple of weeks maybe we can drive together.

I'd be interested in coming.

Sounds like a good idea....I can help with the cookout part of the event too.
There is a NEW indoor handgun range going up as we speak. Suppose to be done sometime in Nov or Dec 2005. I spoke to the owner today in Williamsport. He is real excited about his new place and said its gonna be real high tech and affordable for all.

I am always looking for new places to shoot the ar and the handguns.
Im me if you get a date and a place organized and I will come and help too.

fslint,

A good range in the Williamsport area is the Lycoming County Consolidated Sportsmen's Club. They have everything from 22 ranges to metallic silhouette ranges. I'd belong there if I'd live closer. It's outside of Williamsport on route 87. They also do DCM shoots and a yearly machinegun/car shoot.

okay zach, don't spend all your money on ammo. The kid still needs to eat.

That's the way it was when I belonged there. Especially during the week. You could spend the whole day there going from the 100 yard range to out where they have the silhouettes and bang away at targets over 500 yards away, then go to the handgun ranges and never see another soul. Plus it's in a nice area!

I can only imagine all their weekends are filled up with some type of competition or another, but it wold be a great place to hold a shoot!
