Thanks,

I'm not sure about the longrange stuff as my memory isn't working too well as of this moment, BUT, BobCole and I have talked several times about going and doing some somewhere. He knows for sure.
For IDPA,McMinville has a club that runs matches about every weekend . Pretty much, depending on what your bank account allows for gas and what time you have, you can shoot just about every weekend in a match somewhere in TN. I was looking at Dickson and McMinville for all of my competition needs. I have yet to follow through with it as of yet.
Hope this helps.

Oak Ridge offers some lng range rifle matches. IDPA/IPSC is all over TN, just check the web site for local contacts. Arnold AFB in Tullahoma also offers long range shooting, up to & including 1000 yards.

BTW, Coondog can't shoot for shit, he HAS to use a scope!!!!!!!

The AEDC range at Tullahoma is about 30 minutes from McMinnville. They shoot both highpower and F class there.
