If you're new to the thread, SEE POSTS BELOW FOR UPDATE ON TIME & DATE!



Hey all :wavey:, after seeing suggestions in another thread I am starting this up to see who would be up to a KC area get together/shoot at The Bullet Hole. Couple of things...


1. When?.. I'd like to do it in April. So when works for you guys? Saturdays & Sundays are usually pretty crowded there but might be the best time for everyone although I think week nights would be better as far as crowd goes, and they are open till 9pm so it would probably be the easier/best time for a large group to come in. Need some feedback on this one.

2. I will contact the BulletHole and see if we can get any kind of discounted rate for us here on GT. I would think If we bring in a good amount of folks they'd be more willing to discount. I'll let ya'll know what I find out ASAP.

I'm going to keep a running tally through this thread so if you want in, make sure you say it in your post. I'll also have to keep track in Excel of what usernames want in so once at the range we can verify you're a part of GT and therefore the discount. (if there is one.)

3. Any suggestions/ questions feel free to post on here so if anyone else has the same ? we can all see the answers.


Hope ya'll are up for this, I think it would be good fun.

BE SURE TO TELL YOUR KC AREA GT FRIENDS!

I would be interested, but the only consistent day I have off is Sunday. I usually have wednesdays off, but that depends on how busy we are at work. If given at least a weeks notice I may be able to pull just about any day off though......

I'm in Topeka but would definitely drive for this. I'm always off sundays but am usually free in the evenings during the week. Let me know if I can help get this going.

okay, well not much response as of yet. What do ya'll think I should do to get the work out to more area GT'ers?

I'd be up for it! They're open until 9pm on weeknights, and as of late have always had plenty of room during the week. Maybe we could just post a time/date, and make it a monthly kind of thing? Might start small, but would take time for the word to get out. Just a thought though.

I am definitely in. I will be out of town next weekend (16-18) but any other time I should be able to make. It would be great to meet some people in the area that don't think guns are evil.

Alright ya'll let's plan on a date. Let's shoot for Monday night the 26th (4/26/10) @ 6:30PM and we'll plan to stay as long as people are still shooting! (Range closes at 9PM)

Let me know if this works for ya'll. It should be far enough in advance, and I assume monday nights are fairly open for most.

I like the idea of making it a monthly thing. I'll get with you guys this next week on cost/discount info!

Looking forward to it!:wavey:

p.s. INVITE YOUR GT FRIENDS!

I should be set to go~I'll know 100 percent tomorrow when I check my schedule for that week. -Will post back either way.
Hey, does anyone who is coming have a 26 I can try? I only have a 19 right now and really want to get a 26 for easier concealment.

J/W!
Thanks

You could try my 27. Of course it's a .40 but same size!

04-12-2010, 10:58
I will definitely be there. Just checked my schedule and the 26th is clear for me. I would love to shoot anything other than a G19, as that and a Ruger .22 are my only guns. I will bring lots of 9mm and anyone who would like to try the 19 is welcome to. See you guys there.

I am a definite maybe. I'll be getting back in town Sunday night, so I may be overtaken by events........

I am a definite maybe....Totally depends on our work load that day as to when I will get off. Hoping to be able to make it there, but may be a bit late if I can make it.
On a secondary note, Is anyone planning on being at the Tea Party at Community America Ballpark this thursday? I will be there and it would be cool to meet up with you guys if anyone else is going. :thumbsup:

Any word on a group discount? Also, I have been thinking about picking up a snub .38 lately. If anybody has one I could shoot, that would be much appreciated.

DustyJacket
04-16-2010, 17:08
bete - if I am there you can try my M36 - just bought it yesterday. Don't have a lot of ammo yet, but I suspect the range will sell me some.

Can someone post a loke to the range web site - I've never been there.

Awesome! I will pick up some ammo later this week as well.

Although it will take +P, I do not intend to use much in it. I'll be sticking with regular loads. Except for when I carry it and a few practice rounds.

I have enough 130gr FMC to share. I am going to Cabelas at lunch tomorrow to try and locate a box of 148gr HBWC and 158gr SWC for it.

Sorry dude, no word on group discount. Kinda hard getting them to call back. BUT I'm hoping once they see/ meet us they'd be willing to discuss it further. I'll be asking about it tomorrow.

If anyone is a member, you can rent the downstairs range for $20/hour, if there are no competitions.

Meh, doesn't matter to me either way. I just figured I would ask since you mentioned it.

I called about that the other day and they said it is typically booked a year in advance. Bummer.

Which is funny, because EVERY time I'm there no one is downstairs. We'll see when we get there I suppose!

Seeing as I have never shot there before, but hope to make it out, I have a couple quick questions..... Are there any caliber restrictions? (I plan on bringing my g20) Also, do we have to use their ammo or can we bring our own?

You can bring your own ammo. I don't think there are any caliber restrictions on handgun rounds, but I could be wrong.

Again, I'm extremely disappointed I can't make this one!!! Second, their caliber restrictions are: No center-fire rifle's, no .50 cal, and a couple of other "Exotics"... but 10mm, .45, (anything a glock shoots stock) is allowed. Hope you guys have a good time, and you darn well better have another one in May! :supergrin:

Just found this thread, it would be good to meet and greet some other glockers. I'm off Sundays and usually Friday. Cant make the first one but hopefully can catch up if it becomes a regular thing.

Anything that shoots regular handgun rounds is the way it was told to me... I've seen 9mm carbine's and .22's before.

And yes you can bring your own.

04-25-2010, 16:21
I checked yesterday and they have an LCR available for rent. Since me, my dad, and a good friend are all interested in it, I'm gonna rent it if it's not already taken. Anybody who wants to bring some .38 special is welcome to shoot it. I am still checking but my closest Walmarts haven't had any the past couple of trips.

Dudes and Dudettes,

I hate to do this to ya'll since I'm the one who "organized" this little gathering per say, but I've had a family emergency come up and had to drive to St. Louis late tonight and just got in. I obviously wont be able to make it tomorrow night. I apologize for any inconvenience. But I hope ya'll will still go, and I can catch you next time.

I hope at least one of you is a member there so the others can come as your guest. THIS GO AROUND THERE IS NO DISCOUNT. I decided to let them see our faces, and let them know we planned on making it a monthly deal before asking for anything without giving them anything ya know? So, I hope all goes well, and I'd love to hear how it went from those of you who do go. My apologies for not being able to come.

I will check back on here in a few days and see when the next date is that we can schedule another go-round. Have fun ya'll and shoot er' straight!

Hey all, hope everything went well tonight. I ended up having a nasty day at work and got stuck north of Riverside until 8:00 tonight. Just got home about 20mins ago wishing I could go blow off some steam by punching a few holes in some paper.
Let me know when the next gtg is scheduled, I might have to take some vacation time to make sure I can make it.....

ndhill
04-26-2010, 23:46
Again ya'll my apologies. Looks like my stay in STL might go for the week. BUT, next time... and there WILL be a next time I WILL be there. These things start small and I'm hoping it turns into something fun for us in the area who enjoy GT. Thanks to ANYone who went tonight. Let's hear about it?

Sorry again, but I'll let ya'll know when the next one is!

Alrighty ya'll... I would LOVE to organize another Greet & Shoot for the KC area for GT'ers BUT, I just got out of the hospital (was in for over a month) and since I'm limited to the STL area, I cannot travel back to KC for quite some time. I am in pretty extensive therapy now so I wont be able to help keep things goin' for a bit and I'm sorry for that.

However, I would LOVE to hear if you guys set another one up, and I hope it's a huge success! I still think we have plenty of GT'ers around the KC area who would come out, but we just gotta keep em' going until more can show up. GOOD LUCK, TAKE CARE, and GOD BLESS!

OMB is the best range I have seen! Anything but steel case and buckshot. $65/hr machine guns. 13 lanes. Glockmeister parts.

I've shot there, very nice range. I live about 15 minutes from there.
