Okay, so I know I haven't been posting here often, and I haven't made it to a single MODOCC shoot yet (still waiting for my AR to get shipped...stupid bank, hurry up and clear my check!)...but I have to ask...is there any PUBLIC land to go shoot on?

I'm talking about land where I could drive my Jeep out into the woods/plains and just shoot.

I just got back from a trip to Oregon to visit my parents, and there's a TON of public land up in the mountains that my friends and I just drove out to and hunted coyotes and shot squirrels on...I hadn't done that since high school and I had forgotten how much fun it was.

So, anyone know where to go?

In a word no... But there is a "Public" Unsupervised Conservation Department range called Pigeon Hill about 45 Minutes north near St Joe... Free to shoot just don't act like an idiot...

29 north to the Fawcett exit (Farris Truckstop) turn left follow to the "T" intersection turn right follow the road "A" I believe it is, north again, bear right at the "Y" and continue north you will see a sign on the right for Pigeon hill there is a Green house on the corner where they sell ammo and targets in case you forget.... follow that road til you see the sign for Pigeon hill again turn right go past the landfill gate follow the gravel road and follow the signs...

No Worries if you get a chance or can make it come out to CMMG on the 10th and enjoy an MODCC shoot much black rifle fun.....

There's another one by Concordia.
About 45 mins from KC also. It's unsupervised also. It's not uncommon to see shaving cream, steel plates, and bags of potatos around there.
It's also not that uncommon for 5 or more people to line up with AR's and AK's, while not observing any sort of "slow fire" rule.

Only if you are in the presence of Ranger Rick and his Tic Tac Dick.

Just a few more details to help out someone who's never been there ---

I-29 north to Exit 35 (Faucett) and turn left at the end of the exit ramp onto DD.
West on DD to "T" intersection.
Right turn onto 371 (heading north).
Bear right at the "Y" and go north on A Hwy (do NOT continue driving on 371).
Right turn onto O Hwy (green colored house at the corner of A and O highways).
East on O Hwy until you see the sign for Pigeon Hill --- then follow AFSOC directions.

I wonder if I've ever seen you there. I've taken to going to an even more remote place on Hwy 65 outside Marshall in the past year. But before that, it was always Concordia. We would usually hang steel plates at 25, 50, and 100 yards, on the 100 yard side.
Actually, we're thinking about heading out this coming Friday. Would you be up for some weekday action?

It depends on the mood.
Concordia gets crowded. The other one might not see another soul besides the the 3 people in my group for the whole day.
I tend to go for the semi seclusion. But that's mainly because I've gotten real tired of the crowd scene, where the "lonely guys" with nothing else to do hang out to have a place to feel included.

Which one is that? And do they have a Pistol backstop also?

I use the one 3 miles south of Marshall Junction (I-70 & Hwy 65) where they only have a 25 yard and a 50 yard berm. From morning till 3:00 it's often deserted on weekdays.


The Concordia one usually has the pistol range backer torn in two when I Go. But It's the only 100 yard range close to me.

Do you know a guy named Roger? He's always there. With the steel plates.
He's one of the guys I shoot with. We used to Concordia all the time, but have kind of taken to the seclusion of Marshall Jct. and the fact that the people who show up there usually like to just join in for a shooting party instead of waiting for the table to open up. It's much more fun to just stay there all day, and not feel like you need to pack up so that the other people can have the lane.

I'm about 50/50 on tomorrow <friday> as the rain seems to be looming.

I've informed the other managers at my work that I will not be available tomorrow to perfrom any Friday production miracles for them.
So, unless it's raining to beat the band in the morning, I'm there.

Yes I have met Roger a Couple times--He's the insanely accurate one with his ruger mark 2. Unfortunatly I work All day tomorrow so no fun for me, sorry. I usually go on Wednesdays, as that is my day off.

Yeah, there's something intimidating about a guy who can toss charcoal briquets up in the air, and turn them into powder with a pistol.

Anyway, I'm not gunna chance it with the rain today. Why waste a vacation day, only to wish you had it back when it's sunny and 50 later this fall.
