Any suggestions on good ranges around here? I've only been doing Badger Outdoors but it's been ages what with being busy, the cost of ammo and all that. Would like to know of some other suggestions. Thanks guys.

For a SE WI range check out Mcmiller Sport Center near Eagle, WI. They have a web site that lists hours & all.

Shooters is the name of one in Racine, WI. Its on 6 mile road. http://www.shootersonline.com/SiteDefaultPage/ but the website is under construction right now. I'm going to shoot there today. If anyone is ever interested in getting together send me a pm and we can go shoot one day!

Have you ever tried the action pistol shoot they have at the Bristol range? I used my g20 there last year and had alot of fun. I haven't had a chance to do it this year yet. Ive been pretty busy with work.

Never heard of them but I'll have to check them out.

Anyone know of a "gun club" in the Milwaukee area where I can train with a shotgun? There used to be one downtown on Lake Michigan but I'm nowhere near there and suspect the lefties in Shorewood have closed it down. Anyway, I'm thinking of taking up turkey hunting if work picks up and I can save the scrilla for a decent shotgun. Just need a place to get some practice in.

I grew up in Milwaukee. I live in Lake Co. IL now. I shoot at McMillers and Bristol on occasion. Never been to Shooters but would like more info as their website is down.

I would attend a group shoot as well. :wavey:

Shooters is a small range with I belive 10 lanes and two or three for arrows. Also at shooters it is mainly filled with police officers since they work real close with the police departments! I think it's an awesome little place to go shoot that is inexpensive and close to home for me.

They have a few weapons that you can rent just like most other places. Everyone in the building seems to have a good attitude and I enjoy spending some of my money there.

I heard there is a nice place in Waukegan, Ill to shoot. I would like to go there but I have no idea where it's at and I have no one that really llikes to go shooting with me.

I would like to get something together where we could maybe get some people together so we can have a good time at the range.

Hope to get some range time at a few different places close to the Ill/WI border. Let me know whats there I would enjoy seeing some new faces and ranges!

I believe that place you are thinking about in Waukegan is called Outdoorsman. I dont like it. Its cold in the winter, poor ventilation and dim lights. Not to mention I never felt safe there. I will take an extra 15mins and drive to shooters. Im pretty sure shooters is owned by a racine sheriff. I have seen Bass Pro's range in Gurnee Mills and it looks really nice. I've always wanted to shoot there. Do you shoot IDPA or anything at shooters? I think im gonna join.

No I just pretty much go to Shooters and just rent a lane and go through a couple of boxes of ammo. I would like to try some news places. I need to get to see some new faces sicne shooters is filled with a lot of police officers.

Milwaukee here too, well more Waukesha, but still.

I find myself frequenting Fletcher Arms in Waukesha, but am looking for a good outdoor pistol range. I've been wanting to try McMiller; hopefully I'll get around to actually going this summer.

Anyone know of any decent ranges or gun clubs around the Hartford area?

I walked into Badger once and it felt so creepy I left.
When I'm at Fletcher, it feels right. Very nice people.

And to quote a police officer friend of mine, who's often detailed to watch Badger & stop people as they leave... "Stay away!"

As for ammo, the best prices I've found are at AmmunitionToGo.com

BTW, hi everyone! I'm new to GT, live in Milwaukee, and am active on both Icarry.org & opencarry.org

I am from Hartford area, I go to Midwest Shooters in Lomira (www.mwshooters.com). Its a really nice place with 4 lanes. If you want to join a club there is the Hartford Gun club and another one on Holy Hill road, both are outdoor courses.

Kenosha checking in. I'm a member at CCKC in Bristol, and enjoy their action shoots.

Shavedape, welcome to WI, not too long and you can join us in getting our permits for concealed carry.

Another Milwaukeean here. Now that we're getting CCW I'm getting a bit more serious about my practice time. I used to be a member of Schultz Rod & Gun Club out in Muskego, nice range and trap as well. They run a lot of pistol competition out there. The same group runs a winter pistol competition down at Shooters in Racine.

For local ranges I usually go to either Badger on 43rd St or The Shooters Shop on 84th St.

Janesville here. There is an indoor pistol range within Janesville, and a rifle range in Beloit. Both are decent places to shoot. It's pretty simple to obtain a membership to the Janesville range. The Beloit range requires multiple sponsors.

SE WI here. I will be attending a CCW class this coming Sept. 15.

So far I`m planning on carrying a GLOCK 39 OD subcompact 45 GAP with a
Glock 38 spare magazine. Also I have a J-FRAME Ruger LCR 357 for backup or use as a pocket carry.

What do you guys have plan on carrying? Just curious.... :wavey:

I live in Roanoke, VA and I hope the next time I come to Racine that VA & WI will have reciprocity. My wife is from Racine and she still has relatives living there and we visit once a year. It will be nice to carry concealed in Wisconsin.

I shot there once with a rental Glock 21. First time I shot a 45 and it is darn accurate! I normally go at The Shooters at racine though. Good luck !
