    Bunch of great folks a Lodi. The majority of us shoot throughout the state and into the surrounding when available. Come to the fundraiser match in spring or the first Palma match and meet some great people.

    Elk River, MN was mentioned earlier. I was fortunate enough to get to a couple matches there this year. Great place to shoot!! The members there are outstanding people. The firing line, pits, and club house are first class too. I will definitely try to get there every chance I can from now on.

    No, I don’t believe we have met. I made every match last year at WGC but I am unable to shoot Wednesday because of work. However, you know some great folks already with the guys that shoot league.

    Hopefully we can shoot a few matches with you in the spring.

    There's a crew from Eastern Nebraska as well. We have decent sized midrage matches at ENGC. We draw folks from Iowa and Missouri pretty regularly as well. Bucksnort puts on some matches.

    Van Meter IA will have 3 usually, Milan IL will hold 3 usually a year, St Louis has a number of them, La Crosse and others mentioned already.
    Lodi is on our list this year for a couple matches. Any one of these have great people and support and willing to help with questions.

    Bench Rest Rifle Club of St Louis, in Wright City, has monthly Thursday matches, and several weekend matches that are well attended, such as the Sierra Match. Lunches are provided! They also have several NRA-registered matches on weekends.

    Big Piney, in Houston, MO, has monthly matches on Saturdays.

    These are both shot at 600 yards from covered areas, and both allow shooting from benches. They give awards for F-Open, F-T/R, and 'F-Bench'.

    There is a 600yd range in WI Rapids and one in Wausau. They both hold matches like once or twice a year. Rapids is a tunnel and Wausau is a bit more open.

    Hello. Mr. TenX, would you have any contact info for these two Ranges?
    I'm from Lanse Mi. and those two would be a short drive for me. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    My best suggestion is to contact the WI-Force organization. They can help you with contacting any of the ranges in the state.

    BTW, there is also a 600yd range where they hold events at Racine County Line Rifle Club. It is a range that faces directly east.

    Wausau faces due west...WI Rapids faces due north.

    I’ve been trying my hand at midrange F-class at the Bonfield range (ISRA range) for a couple years now and I’m hopelessly hooked! Now I’m looking to try longer yardages, and shoot in the winter in warmer climates as well.
