Hello just found this sight the other night and this fourm today. I tried a search for St. Louis but nothing came up so I figured a New thread with the Lou in the title might help get a few more locals pointed this direction.

I am actually from Fenton but most people don't know where the heck that is so put St. Louis under location.

Who's out there? Where do you shoot? What do you shoot? Any body love a area shop so much that they stay away for fear of being armed and broke?...lol

Shoot at Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club, there is a match (IDPA, USPSA, Steel) just about every weekend, Top Gun in Imperial is a good shop with an indoor range.

Best, Rik

I live in the STL area and shoot at the Henges Range at I44 & Antire Road. I'm into C&R stuff and other military rifles, but for anything new, I go to Mike's Guns in St. Charles, Top Guns in Imperial, or MidAmerica Arms in Affton.

The Missouri board on AR15 .com is a pretty active. Check it out sometime.

I recently moved to the St.Louis area. Unfortunately, I have not yet been able to get to a range. :crying:

For gun shops, I've heard good things about both Mike's Guns and Top Guns. I haven't had the chance to go to either though, but plan to pick up a new rifle soon (I can't buy handguns here as I'm not yet a MO resident).

Good to know there are a few others around the area. As far as my self I have Been too most all mentioned and one not Denny Dennis. Have also been too or shot at most places mentioned.

Rik you should tell me a little bit more about the club you shoot at. Sounds interesting.


As for where I shoot well there is this little place my buddy owns. "Down by the river." lol

Most the range folks just don't seem to understand or enjoy the sound of 45cal double taps or emptying clips on pumpkins, or watermelons. Last time it was scraped computer monitors.

Tower Grove area of STL, just got a membership to BullsEye range. Kinda small... only ten lanes so usually there's a bit of a wait, and you're restricted to 1 hour on weekends, but other than that nice place and good people.

I've lived in and around St. Louis all my life until the last six years or so. Right now I live in St. Peters and I'm looking for a range. Jefferson County is too far though I got my CCW training at Top Gun. I don't care for the state run ranges; I believe in safety but they take all the fun out of shooting. I used to shoot high-power rifle matches at Arnold but that was years ago. I re-joined the Boeing Rifle and Pistol Club and hope to get back into HP.

There's a show at the Belle Clair Fairgrounds in Belleville, IL pretty often. It's a big show with a lot going on. I don't see any on the calendar right now, but keep checking back. http://www.bcfairgrounds.net/

Oh...I just saw... from looking at the link supplied by jjtroutbum, you can see all of the shows listed in Belleville.

New guy here in St Charles, looking to pick up my first Glock, still undecided on 9mm or 40, but absolutely compact or subcompact. Maybe the single stack 45. Agree the state ranges are boring, going to look into gun clubs. Ive been in Mike's guns once, but they didnt seem too eager to serve, maybe I was too young looking, and I didnt see a great selection at Nassau, any other close places to check. Looking forward to the next show, missed the big one here a couple weeks ago.

if I recall last August right before the permit to purchase was going to be dead he refused to allowed customers to put guns on lay away for when aug28th hit. kept spreading some rumor it wasnt going to go into law and some court order.

Can you blame him?? As f'd up as this state is? There were plenty of people trying to stop the PTA. Look what happened with the CCW the first time around.....60,000 mystery votes showed up against it in the final hours. Then when it finally did pass, the certain judges still tried to block it and St. Louis City refused to honor it.

I like Mike's Guns. Best prices in the STL and a good selection but too many friggin' window shoppers standing in front of the counters.....look at the guns, then get the hell out of the way.

I need a Remington 870 express, I wonder if he has one. Preferably 26" barrel and syn stock. Bass pro and Cabellas has them for $300. I think they were going to give me 10% off if I signed up for a card too. anyone know if small gun store prices are that much better?

allanteman
05-07-2008, 18:43
No discounts on guns or ammo at BP or Cabela's no matter who you are or what kind of coupons/deals you have. You can accrue "rewards bucks" for your gun or ammo purchase, and in the future, use them toward a gun or ammo purchase...........but no percentage discounts. I don't think you can use the "spend $100 get $10 off coupons either."

Stood in line for more than an hour to get burned by this policy......even after I was told I'd get the discount.

STL guy here born and raised. I have bought most of mine at Top Gunn. Everytime I was making a new purchase, I would call around to all the stores in STL. They always seem to have the lowest prices. I am not opposed to finding a good used deal once in a while though. I only have a few more on my list of what I want to buy. Once I get those, ,,,,,,,,, Oh hell I will probably just start another list.
Anyway, If anyone in STL has any of these and decided to get rid of them PM me.

I am also from STL, I have lived here my entire life.

I cannot say enough great things about Top Gun in Imperial, MO. It is a newer range off 55. They have a huge selection of guns, both for sale, and for rent. Their staff is very educated about firearms and safety. Several of their employees also teach MO carry conceal. They also have some of the best prices around on guns. If they do not have it, they can usually get it in a couple of days. I buy almost all of my guns from them.

I would love to try and have a "get together" from everyone in St. Louis, at Top Gun, or another range in St. Louis.

Less than two weeks and I close on my house a few miles down the road from Topp Gun. I am moving to Herculaneum. I will most likely get my membership to Top Gun at that point. Always good to hear from more STL shooters. I would be interested in meeting up sometime.

You guys should check out Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club. I was a member of Top Gun for a year and really liked it, but if you shoot any kind of competition, ARPC is great. 2 steel matches, 1 USPSA and 1 IDPA match every month.

I just retired at the end of April and moved to North Alabama.

i'd flush mike's if i could.

graf's is good also.

trail creek is great, but they cater to the antique and classic crowd ( read very nice and expensive guns ).

being a north county boy i don't get down south much.

What works better for everyone? Days, nights or weekends? I will talk to the guys at Top Gun and see if we can use the class room to meet. Top gun is open seven days a week, their late nights are Mon. and Wed. til 9 pm, the rest of the days they close about 7 pm.

For those of you who have not been to Top Gun, they allow all handgun calibers except the S&W 460. The only rifles they allow are handgun calibers. It is a 25 yard indoor range with a new state of the art filtration system.

It would be great to meet others that share the hobby.

If everyone can try and respond here or send me an email srothman(at)sbcglobal(dot)net. I will keep everyone updated and post when I figure out a day and time.

I agree spent almost as much on Ammo as the rifle cost. I am in the process of mounting scope on mine a3-12 x40 . My eyes don't focus with the irons either the sights are clear or the target is fuzzy or vice versa.

If you are going to attend please send me an email at srothman(at)sbcglobal(dot)net. this way I can keep track of how many people are going and how many lanes we will need.

The store is open until 9 pm, so we will have to be done by then. I look forward to meeting new people who share the same interest and hobby.

I'm in STL for my last year of school.

I recently acquired a 10/22 and a new scope which I'd like to get sighted.

Is the range at Busch Memorial Conservation Area (http://www.mdc.mo.gov/areas/ranges/busch/) recommended? I see it's only $3 for an hour. Any other good outdoor ranges?

srothman
08-23-2008, 11:37
Bush is OK, so is J. Henges (spelling?) off Hwy 44. The problem with the conservation ranges is no rapid shoots. You have to count to three (very slowly) before you can take a follow-up shot. They do have a range officer at all times, but call a lot of cease fires. It is not bad, if it is your only choice.

What type of distance you looking for? There is a great 25 yard, indoor, handgun caliber, shooting range in Imperial, MO. It is called Top Gun, and myself and several other people have had great experiences there. They have a huge selection, and their staff are shooters, and very helpful.

For outdoor shooting I would recommend Arnold Rifle and Pistol, but it is memebership only.

I've heard great things about Top Gun and plan to visit for pistol shooting. However, for my 10/22, I was thinking more in the range of 50 - 100 yards. Waiting 3 seconds between shots isn't a huge deal as I'm just trying to get the scope sighted in.

I'll also look into the membership requirements for Arnold Rifle and Pistol.

I ended up going to Jay Henges Shooting Range and had a good time. The three second rule between shots didn't hamper me much because, as mentioned before, I was simply getting my scope zeroed in.

Though, after seeing a hole crap load of bullet holes in the ceiling, I can't blame them for having the three second rule. How you accidentally shoot the ceiling I'll never know. :dunno:

The price was right at Henges, too-- three bucks for an hour was listed, but I easily shot for two hours and the guy still only charged me three bucks (despite me trying to correct him). I'll be back.

I also stopped in at Top Gun in Imperial, MO, to buy some accessories. Looked like a pretty great place. At least one of the sales folk was friendly and the handgun inventory was the best I've ever seen. Too bad I still have a NY drivers license and thus can't buy handguns here. :sad:

I did check into Arnold Rifle and Pistol but becoming a member didn't make sense financially considering I'll only be here for another 9 month.

If you ever want to meet at Top Gun, let me know. I have a yearly membership, and have bought quite a few guns from them. I usually get one hour free with every gun I buy. I have quite a few, or my guest shoots at a very reduced rate.

For handguns, it is the best place in St. Louis to shoot. There prices are also some of the best in town.

Send me an email srothman(at)sbcglobal(dot)net, and maybe we can meet up at Top Gun. I am going to try an arrange another shoot out there in a few weeks. I will let you know.

I have never had a problem with the man and he always shot it straight with me.

There use to be a nice indoor range out off Range Line, called Target Master (I think).

It was a nice range, good selection of guns, and they use to rent quite a few guns too.

I am not sure about the name? I use to be a student at MU, and we would go their about once a month.

They use to put a coupon out in the Ad Book (??? yellow book handed out everywhere), for money of the range.

I have no idea if they are still in business. If you want to go for a drive, there is Pistols Plus, at Lake of the Ozarks. Their prices are a little high, but nice range, and the owner has an incredible collection on display of about 400 different guns.

Hi, Bought my first Glock yesterday (21SF - 45 acp). Anxious to get out and try it. I've had a 1911 for years, but thought I'd get a high-capacity before the new administration eliminates that opportunity. I live in Sunset Hills, so I'll be looking for a place to try her out.

Hi, Bought my first Glock yesterday (21SF - 45 acp). Anxious to get out and try it. I've had a 1911 for years, but thought I'd get a high-capacity before the new administration eliminates that opportunity. I live in Sunset Hills, so I'll be looking for a place to try her out.

Ed

I shoot at Top Gun indoor Range in Imperial nice place. Phone # 636-464-4867. They also sell and rent good variety of Guns. Nice people there.

Seems there is a slight shortage in STL for a G17 or G19. I am going to have to ask my Officer friends if they can put their feelers out for one.

I checked in with a couple places today, no luck.

Hope you all are having a good Wed,

Thanks for the welcome JJ,

I spoke to someone at Topgun this morning. (backordered) I will try the other two you recomended when I get back into the office tomorrow. Thanks for the information!

The friend that is going to be getting me started has a range he goes to as well...not sure what one it is though. (I'll find out for sure)

Thanks again JJtroutbum for the advice.

Denny Dennis had a G19 with adjustable sights in stock. (called about 10:15am after speaking to On-Target and TopGun the other morning.)

I am now the owner of a new G19 ;) as of 11:00am.

Glad I could help. Now for the hard part. Trying to find a affordable and available source for 9mm ball for practice. It's been getting a little easier lately in our region, but still is like an Easter egg hunt without the fake grass in your basket. Ya gotta look everywhere.

Nidob
03-06-2009, 15:15
Good to know. I did not even ask what they had in stock/if they had any 9mm. I was on an early lunch break and had to drive down there from up north and get back for some conf calls.

Been tossing around the idea of looking for the 22 calibre conversion kit JIC since this will be (for now at least) my only firearm. I don't wish to mess with that untill I have a full understanding of the firearm though.

Side note: they had another G19 with fixed sights for $550 in stock. (3/6/09)

I live in the STL area and shoot at the Henges Range at I44 & Antire Road. I'm into C&R stuff and other military rifles, but for anything new, I go to Mike's Guns in St. Charles, Top Guns in Imperial, or MidAmerica Arms in Affton.

The Missouri board on AR15 .com is a pretty active. Check it out sometime.
Henges rocks and is not far from where I work - great, inexpensive outdoor facility - 50 cal is prohibited - it sets off the trap/skeet electronics. http://mdc.mo.gov/areas/ranges/henges/ - another Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) range is not much farther down the road http://mdc.mo.gov/areas/ranges/busch/ similar setup - good, cheap, well-run fun!. Top Gun in Imperial (short trip down 55) is clean and well run. Bull's Eye in the city is, erm in the city, but staffed well - I live in the city so it's very convenient. The Bellville (IL) Gun Club is OK - strike one - it's in IL. But they shoot IDPA style matches "Fight Night" weeekly IIRC. Benchrest Gun Club is a bit of a haul out 70 past Wentzville but take a look at their impressive schedule of events! http://www.shootingstl.com/schedule.htm

Wally Worlds are plentiful and ball supply has been OK (not as bad as some areas). There's a Cabela's near St. Charles if you like the big box thing and a Bass Pro a bit farther out.

FYI - Mid America (OK stock and prices BUT good staff) just moved to a bigger shop at Gravois and Heege - a little closer to town.

Welcome to the 'Lou - beware the provel pizza - UGH!:rofl:

Usually Gun shows these days have a lot of overpriced Guns And Ammo stay away from the no name reloads in plastic bags. Once in a while you may run into a good deal.

Well, for me gun shows are great places to find out what fits me and what doesn't. I personally wouldn't buy from a gunshow, its usually more expensive. Don't buy any ammo there. Could be some bad reloads. That's pretty much it. Have fun at the show.

+1 on the gun shows, I will go but usually there aren't any real good deals. There is a guy who sells powder that is a good deal. CMMG will probably be there and you can pick up a decent AR-15 for about as cheap as you will see them. I have one and my father has one and both have been flawless. Other than that you usually don't see any great deals but you do get to check some things out that you may buy somewhere else. I remember when the gunshows were the place to get good deals like picking up Chinese SKS's for $65 a piece. Don't see that anymore.

newbie from Oakville (south county).

Went to the show today...Parking was terrible, way over crowded, and prices too high.

Left and went down the street to Nassau and parked right in front, walked right up to the counter and picked up a new Judge ss ultra for $499. Significantly cheaper than any price at the show.

The goof-balls attending that Japanese anime show were amusing though.

The anime show was crazy. The few I saw was a girl dressed like a cat with ears and a tail, another girl was about 240 lbs wearing baby clothes with a pacifier, another guy was dressed as a superhero with tin foil and red tights. I really thought it was weird with that going on and all these people buying and selling real guns in the next room.

I haven't been to a gun show in many years and rarely go to any type of show.(Car, boat, motorcycle, or hunting and fishing) anymore. They all seem to be lame over priced with no deals to be had and if it wasn't for new and proto types. I would not be tempted to go to any type show again.

That said I went too my first pipe (tobacco smoking) show this year. And It was awesome filled with great people, prices, vendors and I really enjoyed it.

Yeah, I picked it up Friday from Nassau and went out Saturday afternoon and shot it. Only had 50 rounds of target ammo though. When I bought it on Friday, Nassau didn't have any target ammo so I didn't get to shoot it as much as I would've liked. Great gun though. I love it.

It turns out they clean the place up on Tuesday's at least I m pretty sure that's what he said. He told me you wouldn't beleave what they have taken of this range, car hoods, doors, clothes dummies, wooden crates, stuffed animals, all kinds of stuff. I guess it keeps the job interesting, he didnt seem to mind..........

Did you call other places? Try TopGuns in Imperial, Dunns in Pevely, Denny Dennis in Fenton or MidAmerica Arms on Gravois rd in Afton.

Not a lot of gun shops in North County or in the City. I consider those places ghetto, and anti gun. Obama won most of the votes in North County.

Cabelas is located in Hazelwood. However Hazelwood police are very anti gun and their chief when ccw first came out instructed his officers to confinscate any firearm for balistic evidence. I refuse to spend any money in Hazelwood.

See response above

If you're looking for a sight pusher I havent see any for sale. However Topgun might have one. if I recall they are a Glock Armor.

You can also call MidAmerica and see. A few years ago I bought a G34 and wanted to change the sights. I took it ti MidAmerica and one of the owners installed my new sights for free. I didnt even buy the gun or sights for him.

Just suggesting that so if you dont want to spend the money for a sight tool you could try a couple gun shops, see if they will do it.

Do you know who Otto is in Afton? He's a gunsmith, probably the best in the Midwest, maybe one of the better ones in the nation.

Im not sure of his prices though, but he does great work.

North STL County here. Grew up in South STL City. Former Ford Hazelwood worker. I buy, trade, and sell all of my gun business with Mike's Guns in Saint Charles. Cabela's did have tons of pistol ammo. Now its all gone and when its in stock there is a 2 box limit. But I did buy quite a few boxes of MagTech 9mm, 40 and 45ACP there before the big ammo rush. Cant find ANY SKS/AK ammo anywhere except online. I did buy my Glock 21SF at Cabela's on sale about year ago. Couldnt pass up the price.

Mike's Guns also sells Meprolight night sights for Glocks for around $80.00 tax included and he installs them for free. Does a damn good job too!

Hi - I just bought my first AR-15 and a good sling, and, as a lefty, need to move the sling swivel from the left side to the right side.

It requires tapping out two roll pins. The Brownell site has a video (!) of roll pin tools (three of 'em) that I don't have.

I figured it'd be cheaper to take it to a gunsmith to have it done (and to check out the weapon before use).

I live in the Ballwin area, and work up near the airport.

Well, I figure this is a good spot for my first post. I am living in South City currently, by Carondelet Park. Just purchased my first gun ever a couple of weeks ago. I went with a Glock 19 based on the reputation of Glock and the availability of the 9mm round. I have been doing my shooting at Top Gun in Imperial, MO and so far am really enjoying it. I would like to get my CCL but I need to give my wife some more time to warm up to the idea of me carrying. She has been to the range with me, but she is still a bit fearful of firearms.

Sounds like your making good choices in weapons and ranges. Top Gun in my experience is a class act. Don't be too pushy but trying to keep her shooting in a safe and relaxed but fun atmosphere is paramount to converting her completely from the dark (fearful)side.

IMHO, Carrying is a personal choice make it for yourself.

Please consider IDPA - the International Defensive Pistol Association. I use my G19 for it. It's the next step after punching holes in paper - shooting defensive scenarios for time and accuracy while moving and reloading - real world defensive shooting.

Arnold Rifle and Pistol Club hosts IDPA and newbies are always welcome (I'm one, having shot only a couple of times). Go to www.arpc-idpa.com (http://www.arpc-idpa.com) to check it out. We're having a fun shoot this Saturday 3/6/10, starting around noon. This is a great time to start.

Cabelas has the greatest selection, which usually means they will have some Blazer Brass in stock and it is generally the lowest price I will see for 9mm or .380. For .45, you can't go wrong with the deal Walmart usually has on the 100rd WWB.

The guys attitude went from nice and helpful to "im a cop interrogating you" DIRECTLY after he ran my credit card for 500 bucks 2 days ago. Im waiting for the nics to clear, as i get delayed everytime.

Was it kind of a small guy with a beard?

I just got my LE Glock 23 from them about 2 weeks ago, he seemed kinda stand offish when I was there.

Born and raised in STL, but went to HS in FL. I moved back because I missed the change of seasons.

I have found the best prices on half of my hand guns at Express Pawn Shop. Only downsides are they are a little drive (no biggie for me, it's on the way) and they have to order them. Nothing is in stock. They have, I believe, 3 shops. The Farmington location has the best prices and is most convenient for me.

Looking forward to Top Gun and On Target ranges to open in the next couple months!

Ya if I didn't have the pass I would go to Sovereign Arms instead its $15 a day but its also a cheaper range. If someone rapid fires it gets really dusty from the bank stopping the bullets.

It's really nice, they just complete redid the pistol/rifle range and it's now 100 yards baffled. You can set a target stand at 7, 15, 25, 50, 75, 100 yds. And they provide the targets. The stalls are really wide too. They give you a bench and a bench rest to shoot from and a place for spectators to sit. They call a ceasefire every 5-10 minutes to replace targets. There are 2-3 range officers and an overwatch, so it never feels unsafe. It's a great place to shoot for real cheap.

I haven't been over to their shotgun patterning or trap section yet, but I got a new 12 gauge that I need to shoot, so I probably will this weekend if the weather is nice.

I live in North County. I have shot at Reifschneider park, Bullseye, and Topgun. Topgun is the best IMHO with Reifschneider being the second. Topgun even lets me shoot the AK.

I buy ammo at Cabellas.

I went to that store on Dorset once on a humbug during a lunch break just to see what they had. The guy seemed standoffish to me also and said something to the effect of "If your price shopping the owner would throw u out." Guess where I will NEVER go again...

Never heard of Reifshneider Park, and a search didnt turn up much. I've been to Bullseye, but not shot there. It didn't seem like a very nice shop and it's a pretty old looking facility. Top Gun is brand new and top notch, it's where I've done the majority of my shooting (only been at it about a year). But ever since Jay Henges reopened last September, I can't bring myself to pay their prices. IMO, the only advantage TopGun holds over Jay Henges is that you can rapid fire, but that's not a deal breaker for me.

Biz,if you are looking for a nice gun shop, I would recommend MidAmerica Arms on Gravois in South City. I bought my RIA 1911 and my Mossberg 500 there and they usually have pretty good prices on ammo too.

Do you work weekends Huber, is that why you go on Wednesdays? I would go this Wednesday, but I am waiting on Cabelas to call me back about the bg check delay on my Marlin .22lr and I'd have to give my work 24 hour notice, so if they don't call me today, I probably can't go this week.

Its a state park in Warrenton, MO. Its unsupervised and in the middle of a conservation area. Kinda a hidden secret as you have to drive thru the park (and thru a little stream) to get there. Good time tho.

I would not recommend going in the winter or times after heavy rain (it is outdoors and can get muddy.) Here are the directions there (from OnTargets website)

Directions To Warrenton Range: Reifschneider Conservation Area Highway 70 West from St. Louis to Wright City Exit # 199, go left over highway then right on outer road. Go left on Highway H, right on Highway M, left on Schuetzenground Road 3 miles to conservation area. Follow road through conservation area, firing range is 1st left after the lake. The conservation website is showing a phone # of 636/441-4554 for info but I have never called it.

Will do. It was a pretty successful trip. I got my new Marlin .22lr sighted in. I learned that the red dot on my AR is pretty much worthless in sunlight, so I need to get a new scope for it. I shot my LCP for the first time. Dang that trigger pull is long. I had a tendency to shoot low with it, I was probably jerking towards the end b/c it's such a long trigger. Definitely need more practice with it. Shot my 1911 a little too which just reaffirmed my love for that gun.

No failures of any kind on any gun. It was quite crowded tho and the fellas a booth over were shooting a Mosin Nagant, which was a little unsettling for the wife. But it was still fun times.

It's a cheapy Leapers red/green dot that I got for 30 bucks off some airsoft website a few years back. It's nice indoors and in low light, so I've got it sighted for close range, but outside it was worthless unless pointed at something dark.

I've never had experience with a good quality red dot, but I would assume they don't wash out as bad as this one. I think I will probably try to pick up a decent 3x-9x 40mm scope in the next couple of months.

So my thoughts of jays:

1. It is very annoying that you can only have one target on top or bottom even when having multiple guns.
2. 15 mins before being able to change targets is a lot when having more then one person shoot.
3. Facility is nice and cheap


Can't say I will shoot there a lot as it is a 45 min drive or so but days I am off and nice out I may go up there

1. Agreed. That one never made sense to me.
2. Agreed. It's a bit too long, but the 3 second btwn shots (which I don't like) make it reasonable I guess.
3. Agreed.

My only gripe is the crowds on the weekends. Let me know when you plan to do a mid-week shoot and I can usually get a morning off. Should be much less crowded then.

How'd the shooting go? Any failures? Did you get your carbine sighted in?

Shooting wise went good.....Glock not so good lol well no problems just I was majorly off for some reason. Hi point started rough not because of the gun my red dot wasn't working (funny story....I put it on backwards some how and wasn't paying attention) so ripped that off and reinstalled iron sites. Got it almost dialed in but super accurate!

The entire trip shot about 150 rounds of 9mm and 70 rounds of .40 not a single issue or failures :)

What is the membership cost like for Arnold Gun Club?

First year is the most expensive...breaks down like this:

$100 initiation fee
$150 annual membership fee (paid every year)
and you have to be a NRA member so if your not already then it's like $30 a year or something

Still your first year is only $30 more then Top Gun and they literally run every week some kind of shooting comp. You can take them serious or have fun

it gets pretty crowded on the weekends have to wait for a table some times (weather permitting) but if you can go on a weekday you'll probably be the only one there its nice. BUT last time I was there which was quite some time ago a warrenton sherrif came out called a cease fire and yelled at everyone because you can only shoot at the backed targets you cant bring your own target stand/object to shoot. He said he could fine everyone there (even if you were abiding by the rules) but he said he left and said he would be back n 15 and if everything wasnt cleaned up he was going to issue tickets. he was a dick but just doing his job I suppose.

I see you traded in your 22 for the 19. Good call in my opinion. But, I've never been a fan of the .40 round. Gimme a 9mm or a forty five.

This match sounds like fun! Any idea what the cost to enter is? Also, am I gonna look stupid as a beginner? I mean, I can shoot decent, but I have only been to the range once so far this year, so I would be rusty for sure.

I'm in good ole Jeffco, I'm rarely seen at any local ranges, if anything I take quick trips to some of the areas unmanned conservation owned ranges but lately I have stopped going because of the aggressive brass vultures literally hovering over me.
Thats ridiculous. I've never experienced anything like that, but have only been to a few ranges so far. They just hang out and pick up your brass while you're shooting? Cheap bastards

Lol ya much happier! On the match yes you would be fine...its set up for everything from beginners to experts. I mean I have only been shooting since Feb and I placed 10 out 16 so it shows wide range

Ohh they sure aren't shy, I had one old guy lingering around behind us pacing back and forth picking up brass as people shot! I had to run him off. Another time at the same range two old guys showed up, one walked up behind my wife and was watching her shoot, the he had the balls to put his hands on one of my shooting bags to open it and asked what she was shooting and asked if she wanted help lol. I was across the range watching closely, her reply was asking him if he'd ever been shot before lol. I seem to attract weird folks at ranges.


To the guy that asked about ranges in Jeffco, there are none other than private ranges. I was talking about conservation owned unmanned ranges like little Indian creek.

Hey Huber, I am planning on being there! This will be my first match ever, so I'm excited. Is there anything I need to know? Anything I need to bring, other than a gun, some money, and some ammo?

You gonna be shooting your 19? I think that's what I will bring to shoot. I'd like to shoot my 1911, but .45 ammo is a little pricey.

REA9mm awesome man...This will be my second!

You need a couple things:

1. Register for the email blasts on the website.....Couple days before they send out the code to get into the gate. With out it you can't get in. (which if you want to meet before hand you can follow me in and park)

2. Bring gun, eyes/ears, holster, mag holster (if you have one), 3 mags, last time was about 100 rounds but it ranges on the stages so about 100-150 rounds in case you have extras you have to fire, and finally a cover item (vest, bigger shirt, jacket (wouldn't recommend since it will be warm I am sure)

I recommend getting there early and helping set up cause then you get to shoot for $4!!!! Plus you get to see the course and get fimiliar with it. We can be in the same squad if you want!?!?!

Basically when you register you pick a squad and shoot with them all day and in order.

Yes I am shooting my Glock 19 :)

You got it. The threee I've had have been ultra reliable. I love glocks too. It's that for the price of one of my favorite Glocks, I can buy 3 Hi-Points.

I may be picking up one today, as a matter of fact.

Don't have an OWB holster - but I do have a nice IWB that I use for CC. Will that work for IDPA? Considering trying it out next Saturday - how long do the matches usually last?

Thanks!

IWB should work fine, as long as it's rigid, for easy reholstering. Last month we got finished around 1pm and I think we got a little bit of a late start due to the rain. I will unfortunately not be participating this weekend b/c my brother is coming in from LA, but I will definitely be back out there for the July match.

Wow, not sure how I missed this thread...

I've been on here for a bit, I'm from N. County. I'm a member at ARPC, and Hiway 67 Gun Club in Farmington, so I usually shoot at one of those two ranges or a friends house down in St. Claire...

JJ, I've met you before at said friends house... :)

In south city. Shoot top gun, bulls eye, Henges. Will start matches at Arnold in 2012. Looking for training and fun from IDPA and hope to get into 3 gun if I can find the time. Been here since 2000. South city pawn by Mid America on Gravois is a place tO watch for new and used and willing to deal. They are expanding the shop AND turning the car washproperty next door into a new range. 3 miles from me and I'll be doing more there. Just spun a great deal on a Mossberg sale/trade of a 500 for a new 930. Totally happy with the outcome. Talk to Kent.

Born and raised in south county, transplanted to south city..... Just got my first Glock, Gen 4 G23.

Top Gun is great, but I would rather shoot outside if I have a choice. There is the Henges range at Antire road, but are there any other outdoor shooting ranges in the area?

Been thinking about going there. May have to give it a try.

BTW, I enjoy your videos. I've been thinking about joining the ARPC. I have a membership at Ultimate Defense in the St. Peters/O'Fallon area. Nice place. But there's just something about shooting outdoors that makes everything that much more enjoyable.
