Opening this up so people here in the Heartland can get together, set a date, and have fun together.

    Thinking mid-summer. Need to know where everyone can get to. And how many are coming and from how far.

    Need the town or city you will be coming from.
    How many.
    And how far you are willing to travel.
    Will possibly be getting something set up with 'Bass n' Bucks' near Warren, IN.
    MZW knows the place better than I do.
    Unless someone knows of some place else towards the southern parts of Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, etc...
    Just shooting possibilities.

    Indiana is a bit too far from Wichita for me.   I do have a cousin that lives about halfway between KC and St Louis,  so I could probably go stay at his place if it isn't too much farther from there.

    He might come out too since he's a shooter too and recently got his FFL.

    SE Mo. here.  Not quite 3 hours to Memphis or St. Louis.  Four to Springfield or Jeff City.  I'm willing to do some travelling for a good time.

    Just a suggestion as I can not guarantee my being able to make it do to my work schedule. The county opened up a brand new range a few months ago and I could enquire about reserving it for you. The range is located in Batesville Arkansas. The town is located in north central Arkansas in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains.  Hotels are closes, food is close, catering at the range can be arranged without a problem. Free Bluegrass music on Friday and Saturday nights on the square in Mt. View Arkansas, (worth the 30 minute drive) it is an experience, good family fun.

    Even though I cannot guarantee my being there I can guarantee to make the arrangements. Arkansas is gun friendly so no hassles in transporting firearms. If you decide this may be an area you would consider I will start the ground work.

    couple of points.    For the Yankee's.   If you ain't been to Arkansas in the summer,   it's a bit on the intense side.
    For those who indulge,   that part of Arkansas is Baptist Dry,  which means you have to drive a couple counties over or bring it with you.
    on a personal note,  my folks live 25 miles away (up near Sage on the Sidney turn off), so I could do a two-fer.   :thumbup1

    Thought about mentioning the dry part. Illegal to sell but it is legal to drink. I am just further up 167 past the Sidney turn off

    I can drive about 6 to 8 hours south and be clear into upper Arkansas or even Okie territory. So I am optional. Just would like to find a central local that would be good for all of us.

    I know everyone dislikes coming to Illinois but... what about the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta?  http://www.dnr.illinois.gov/recreation/WSRC/Pages/default.aspx

    I look to be pretty buried during the summer right now but, if I can swing it I would be interested.

    I probably will not be coming to this as I am busy all summer with the baby that is due in June, but I will absolutely not go to Illinois. Why should I spend money (pay taxes) in a state where I am not welcome?

    What about Knob Creek in Kentucky or Montgomery County Shooting Complex in Tennessee? Just a few I found.

    Depending on location and time I may be interested but from the looks of the planning it would be a long trip for me;) So maybe but not any certainty since so much is going on this summer but I'm looking for some sort of trip;)
