Went to Wilson Shoals WMA range for the first time today. Except for all the mud at 100 yards it's a nice place. 10 covered benches on concrete pad. Myself and 2 other guys had an AR-15 ... another guy had a Bushmaster in .308 .... I went through 200 rounds of Wolf and 100 rounds of .40 in my Glock 23 ... My son went through 100 rounds of .22 in his 10/22 ....

Was about a 50 minute or so drive for me from Cumming .... I'll be going there more often now ....

I also belong to Bullseye Marksman in Cumming, GA .... they are having 3 GSSF tournaments ... one in January, February and March. I've been thinking about giving that a try ... just got my Glock 23 recently but maybe I can do OK in Amateur Class ...

I was headed there today as well, but got caught up in installing a washing machine. Should have taken 10-20 minutes, but ended up taking from 9:30am-5pm.

How was the crowd?

Oh, BTW, it's not 100 yards there. It's 85-87 to the wire fence (if there was one up.) It used to be 100, but there was an underground spring that kept it too muddy back there.

I was figuring the crowd would be gone since deer season is over. It's pretty light there during the week

I was there from around 11:30 to 2:30 .... 5 to 7 benches were occupied the entire time .... I was thinking it was less than 100 yards but was tough to tell ... and like I said ... it was muddy .....

I am not too far from that area (Wilson Shoals) but I am not sure where it is at, directions would be appreciated. I have also heard there is a place in Clayton?

Nevermind about Wilson Shoals, found it.

I live on HWY 63 near HWY 106. We are on the Franklin/Stephens line.


BTW: Is shooting on Sundays allowed there?

yeah, shooting is o.k. on Sundays. Range goes hot at 12pm.

I went today for some load development. By 11:40am the tables were all taken. I was there about an hour and left so that another guy could have my table. I'd accomplished what I set out to do.

IT was VERY muddy at the back berm. Luckily wehen I set my target up the berm was still frozen, otherwise it'd have been a few inches of soggy mud.
