Who's up for what will probably be the last shoot of the year? The Friday after Thanksgiving at Buffalo Rock... Nov 28... I have not called Buffalo Rock to see if there open, I think they close Dec1.. The weather will be up for graps but what the hay I have that day off and are going for it. Who's up for it???

I would be up for that. Sounds like a good time. Just let me know all the info Jimmi

Ahhh another shoot, boy will it be cold. No bother, I will be there!

I called Buffalo Rock yesterday to confirm that they will be open... Ah yes it's a go... I forgot to ask when they do close for the season.. If I remember correctly it's Dec 1. My son and I plan to get out there and stake our claim on a table at 9am . This could be a very busy day at the rock... Lets all hope the weather holds out...

I will be there bright and early. I need to go to the benches first though for that brand spanking new beautiful M1A


Then it's off to the pit

Oh and if you guys see a guy in camo walking around saying over and over "This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine." Don't be alamed, it's just me with my new M1A.
It's on order and will be here Tuesday. I can't wait.

I called Buffalo Range and the guy with the British accent said they close Nov. 30 for the season.

Why not have the shoot on Saturday the 29th instead of Friday? Some people may have to work the day after Thanksgiving.
Link Posted: 11/14/2003 10:31:30 AM EDT
Well, this may be true. I will be heading down on Friday either way I have a commitment that Saturday
Link Posted: 11/14/2003 11:31:04 AM EDT
I'm aiming for the 15th or 16th (sat or sun). and then maybe one day the weekend thereafter (22nd or 23rd). I haven't been out there in 4or 5 weeks, so I gotta make up for it before BR closes.
I'm pretty sure I gotta work the day after Turkey Day.

Don't worry, there will be other guys in camo walking around saying, "This is my rifle and this is my gun. This one's for killing and this one's for fun."

I'm gonna try to make it. I have a new RRA 16" that I've had for a couple weeks and haven't shot yet. I'm leaving for an Elk hunt in Colorado on Saturday, so Friday might be the last chance to shoot at the rock this year.

Avalon and I might be hitting the Rock that day, It all depends if we want to drive 2hrs+ each way.....Its either that or stay in Wisc. and shoot some here. Depends on weather. Will keep you all posted.

Many people here keep calling it Buffalo Rock or just the "Rock" when it's actually just Buffalo Range.
I can see the confusion since Buffalo Rock State Park is in the area and the range is down the road from Buffalo Rock Rd.

Interested in the Shoot. Where is BR located exactly. I live in Metropolis, Illinois. Last town on I-24 going south.

Thanks Travis

i understand the confusion, the range has undergone a few changes over the years, it was originally called, "sparkys buffalo rock range", due to a few explosions and a few deaths, including ole sparky himself the ownership has changed, hence diff names.some of us old timers still call it buff rock or sparkys
you used to be able to rent full auto there. we used to rent, m60's m16's ak's lewis anti tamk guns. i remeber buying 1k rounds in wooden crates full of mil ammo for a 75 bucks

they didn't charge you for the rental of the gun, just had to buy ammo from them, 100 round belt of .308 for an m60 was 45 bucks.
had a buddy that was class3 we used to take ma duece there to shoot. ah the good ole days

So who all is going Friday?
Link Posted: 11/25/2003 8:13:11 PM EDT
I am gonna have to bail out this time. We are going to 7 mile in Wisc. We are going to do some dusk/night shooting, with full auto and the 50. Have a good time there and I 'm sure I will catch up with most of you this winter or in the Spring.

Batch, are you talking about this range in Racine? I have heard about it, whats the deal? I am up on the Wis state line. Is it public?
Link Posted: 11/26/2003 9:25:54 PM EDT
I will be there. How does the pit work anything goes?? What is there to shoot? I will be there at nine on Friday.
Link Posted: 11/27/2003 2:11:02 AM EDT
My son and I will be there. The pit is great for cleaning out the basement and garage. You can throw almost anything down there to shoot at. Per the range "No Metal, No Glass, & Nothing that explodes, burns, Etc". Things that I like are tennis balls, golf balls and old CD's are great, because you really get them down there. I also like detergent bottles filled with water. They are made of heavier plastic and survive the toss into the pit better that a pop bottle. I like taking my frustations out with work by shooting up old computers. There is a ton of stuff to shoot at in the pit. The shotgun shooter shoot at clay targets over the pit and the broken pieces of clay targets are good to shoot at....
I will be there in a red Ford Ranger stop and say hello. Happy Thanksgiving!
Link Posted: 11/27/2003 5:17:23 AM EDT
I will be there. I will be the guy in the Black Chevy 4X4 Pickup with a lillt American Flag on the antenna. i will most likely be in camo as all my cold weather gear is USGI. like who's isn't? I will let you guys in o a secret, I am making a movie called "Bowling For Michael Moore" a small documentary for us gun folk so I may have the camcorder there anybody that wants to be on film let me know and i will bring release forms. REAL question is, what's everybody bringing to shoot?
Link Posted: 11/27/2003 7:19:05 AM EDT
You boys have fun without me, I'll be there in spirit. Hey Patriot, movie idea sounds great. I hate that commie f*ck ! ! Let's get together before the Lakemoor fun show to discuss that political stuff. Happy Thanksgiving to all. Peace to all of you and your families.....and don't forget our brothers and sisters overseas fighting the good fight ! !
