The range in Ames is AWSOME if we could get it. Only thing is that they DON"T allow full-auto fire. I really don't know if they would allow non-members to shoot there however. They do for the IDPA shoots, but don't know about something like an AR shoot.

I'm game. I missed the last group shoot. Finding that range is not that hard, and there are no membership issues. If you can find Panora you can find that place.

I was at the last shoot there,ok by me.The only thing I did not like about the set-up there is that the 200yd and 300yd shooting is over the 100yd bench,all are in line with each other.So, only one bench can be used at a time.It's out in the boonies and not many farm houses nearby.Nice quiet place(untill we get therehippie.gif

Unfortunately I still have not heard back from the Ames Ike club. I'll try my contact again this afternoon.

Hey guys,

I run the Outdoor Range the Ames Ikes. Todd has sent me a couple of emails about holding rifle matches or shoots or whatever you want to call them.

For the last two years we have held CMP Service Rifle matches (Garand Matches). Though originally intended for M1's, 1903(A3)'s, M1-Carbines's, etc, we allow pretty much any rifle, in an effort to encourage participation in these matches. The course is shoot at 100 yards only, with 10 rounds standing off-hand, 10 rounds rapid fire sitting, 10 rounds rapid fire prone, and 20 rounds slow fire prone. Rapid fire strings are 80 seconds and slow fire is 1 minute per shot.

We have also held IDPA matches for the past four years - I'm guessing you are familiar with that type of match.

What kind of course of fire are you interested in? Todd was leaning toward an informal tactical course of fire. I was thinking about using IDPA targets with various points of cover and targets ranging from 10 to 100 yards or so, with movement up to 100 yards. We could run the whole thing for time - basically it would be an IDPA match for AR's.

Any thoughts or suggestions. I am open to this, but need to know people will show up.

If you would like to be added to my IDPA list or want to discuss this match possibility, send me an email at outdoor_range@amesikes.org.
