welcome aboard!

the NE HTF is pretty quiet.  for long range, i would suggest Lincoln Izaak Walton, near Bennett or Eastern Nebraska Gun Club at Louisville or maybe the range near Weeping Water.  I have shot at the Lincoln Ikes and ENGC, but not Weeping Water.  any of them would be just fine i suppose.

since you're new, have you joined the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association (NFOA)?  we are a 100% free, 100% volunteer based gun right group.  we are on Facebook, Twitter and MeWe.  we also have our own forum where lot of Legislature bills are talked about during the session.  nebraskafirearms.org

What's up Nebraskans!

I stumbled into this section and thought I would chime in.

I'm a born and raised Nebraskan who lived in and around McCook for most of my life. Recently moved to Grand Island for work but McCook will always be home for me.

Any others from around McCook? My family had a car dealership in town for many years.

Here's a very armature cell phone picture of my 1911 because why not.

If you're new to GI, you owe it to yourself to visit the Heartland Public Shooting Park.  Lots of fun stuff to do.

And don't eat on 281.  There are some great places downtown - Wave Pizza, The Chicken Coop, Kinkaider Brewing, McKinney's... just to name a few.  

I'm 30 mins. down the road in Hamilton County.

IMHO, in Nebraska the NFOA does more than the NRA and NAGR and GOA.... but thats my opinion.  I have financially supported the NRA-ILA and SAF in the past.  the NFOA and SAF have worked together and done some great stuff in the past.

Signed up with the NFOA.  Finances are a little tight right now, but  I'll start sending them some money when work picks up and I get overtime again.

thanks, i saw your username over there.  make sure to be a Full Member, it unlocks more secret forums and thats were the bills and other good stuff happens.

money is the least of our worries, yes its great (its pays the bills, etc), but we need volunteers and time.  no one, not even board members get paid.

Already a full member.  I'll be checking in on volunteer opportunities next then I guess.  Any suggestions?

Being an active member on the forum is a good start. Contacting your elected officials is great too. We are in need of a video editor. If you want to help out, contact Rod or Trish on the forums, they can get you started.

Welcome to the forum!

For ranges, a good one ENGC near Louisville. It's members only, but pretty good. There's a slew of them in/near Omaha.... Like 88Tactical, Marksman, Omaha gun club, etc.

Also, Please join the Nebraska Firearms Owners Association (NFOA). It's 100% free and volunteer run.

My name is Johnathan and I just moved from the Pacific Northwest a little over 11 months ago. Wasn really into firearms until I moved here, but I am enjoying learning about all the different variants.

Currently, have a CZ-P10 (No Mods, yet) and just built my first AR-15 (Anderson) I am ashamed to say this, but I still haven't fired the AR-15 yet since the weather hasn't been cooperating with me, so I would openly welcome any ranges in Omaha that I could go to, to fire it off for the first time.

Also, I am always up to meeting new people since I am new to the area, so please feel free to send me invites to meetups.

Nice meeting everyone, and this looks like a great place to chat.

Welcome!

Have you heard about the Nebraska Firearm Owners Association (NFOA)? Please join! The Unicam just started a new session. We can use all the help we can get!

There's several threads in the NE HTF about Omaha ranges. All ranges will require soft tip ammo for rifles.

I don't think we've ever really done a hometown shooting. Not enough people or time. I've met several arfcommers and they usually don't stink too bad.
