    I usually shoot at Bellwood (informal), but am renewing my membership at Reade Range.
    Planning a groundhog shoot in Grampion in March.
    F-Class in May at Reade.
    Long range steel match at Miflin County.

    Broadening my horizons so to speak.

    Terry is a fine person and I would think he would be a great travel companion. I live in Wisconsin, but don't care to travel. Some day would like to make a trip to the Dasher Dome, would love to shoot at Deep Creek.

    No, you are fortunate to live in central Pa. I doubt if there are many or ANY other area in the country you can drive less than 3 hrs and shoot as many matches.I am talking about multiple matches on many Saturdays and Sunday 6 months out of the year.

    I actually like my wife, and wanna keep her around for a few more years. :D

    She already complains about the time, (we won't mention money!) I spend hunting. :rolleyes:

    I have no clue where a lot of these places mentioned are.
    I guess i really do need to get out more.

    May end up doing Reade in June. Spring turkey starts in May. :D

    Well, it is important to keep the wife happy. I pretty much stopped all but deer hunting many years agp when I reslized I would rather go to a match and enjoy lots of shooting and good companionship than hunting. I get my woods fix by taking my wife hiking several days a week which see enjoys and has found out she has gained a lot of knowledge about the woods and the animals in them. Don't get all warped up in National Shoots. Competition at lots of local shoots is just as good. I have shot in National Championships in several diciplines, never won but have been a runnerup, 2nd place. I did not win a New Cadillac , just a piece of wood . Local shoots often give a similar piece of wood or better yet a few bucks, gas money, no overnight travel and expense. If you can compete here in Central Pa you can travel the country and be competitive that is your goal. I know I have done it and seen others who have.You can do it if you work at it. As with anything you get out of it what you put into it.

    I would, my club is only about 20 minutes away and I got to compete in 6 of the 8 matches last year. I am about an hour from Atterbury, but have never shot there.

    I already scheduled vacation to accommodate my shooting schedule. It’s going to be a busy season. I’ll probably add in a few more too. Dave.

    atterbury is a great range with some tricky winds sometime. The matches are well run and relaxed. Come on up sometime, you’ll enjoy it.
