We're a quiet bunch. Totally unrelated, I'm stoked to be checking out the Hartford range today for the first time.

Did you shoot on the 600 range? Someone told me you have to prove you can hit at 200 first? True?

We shoot at 200 regularly, but would like to practice further.

We set up, shot steel at 200 then started working our way to the 300, 400 and finally the six. No one said anything to us, so I'm pretty sure you'd be good to go. I think as long as you're not an asshole they pretty much leave you alone.

Fantastic!

Look at us go, Meltdown. Like a regular group of chatty hens.

I havent been to the range portion just shot the sporting clays for a few events.

Fun course although there are a few spots where with the wrong wind they have to toss clays differently which leads to pelting other station shooters.

I caught a few BBs last time I was there and they sting

The owner seems like a real nice guy and personable.

I just got back to Missouri from your state. I popped a few prairie dogs while there, camped in spearfish canyon, visited Mt Rushmore and had a catastrophic electrical failure in my truck. It still sits at the shop in rapid city, they cant seems to get it squared away. I'll go back out in a couple weeks and get it.

I can second what you said about sporting clays. I have also used the rifle range and it is a nice set up but the per day fee is a little high for me.

Link Posted: 6/30/2016 7:16:47 PM EST
The daily fee is what has kept us away until now. We have access to 200, but need to stretch out before a western deer hunt.

Truck is ready, looks like I'll be back to your state soon!

I suppose everyone is too busy prepping for hunting season to talk.

We got paddlefish tags!

We're busy trying to squeeze in as much motorcycle riding and shooting as possible before winter hits.

Looks like most of the activity is on your side of the state. Not much out West for ranges or events, and they are usually poorly timed for me.

*bump*
Link Posted: 8/23/2016 9:14:00 PM EST
I was just out west last week doing some fly fishing(some work mixed in there too). Weather was perfect and looked like the tourists were starting to clear out.

Didnt want to come back to the cornfields

I visited two relatively new gun shops last week. Blue Collar Tactical in Sioux Falls and Gunway in Harrisburg. Gunway has a cool simulator and live fire all in one setup. Looks very interesting.

Blue Collar Tactical had a good inventory and prices to match.

Now is the time to buy.

I am not affiliated with either entity.

SoDak Sports is opening a shop in Mitchell. They are based out of Aberdeen and are fantastic people to deal with, probably my fav gun shop in the Midwest.

I would recommend following Blue Collar Tactical on Facebook if possible. Posts deals all the time on there! Best for FFL transfers in the Sioux Falls area IMO.

Any of you fellas live around Deadwood? I'll be cycling through there Tuesday, looking to grab food and drinks for dinner. I'll prob be getting a beer in Sturgis as well.

I live in Rapid City but I have that pesky work thing on Tuesday. The weather forecast looks like the nicest day of the week on Tuesday. Ride safe.

Thanks. I'm breaking outta enemy lines in a few hours, heading to the Badlands and then going to mosey around Rapid City to refill on coffee and whiskey. I look forward to taking the road bike around the Black Hills for a few days. I'll definitely report back on the brewery thread on where I chose to visit. I hope the Black Hills Burger & Bun burger isn't a let down!

It is not. Be prepared to wait for seating.

As someone in Rapid City this place sucks for ranges. Luckily I can just run home to Lemmon and have all the public land in the world to shoot dogs on. Wouldn't hate making some shooting friends though!
Link Posted: 11/8/2016 6:17:39 PM EST
Miles of public land around Rapid.
Link Posted: 11/8/2016 7:17:46 PM EST
Only problem with public land is the lack of permanent shooting structures like benches or gongs. But I really do need to look into good prairie dog colonies in the area I would assume most are shot at all the time.

If you don't mind walking a bit I know of one that would be really fun to shoot.

I have fun EVERY time I use my snowblower because I don't have to shovel.
