Shooter Ready? Official Hello and Welcome Range

Hello we’re happy you made it!

What are we about?

We’re all about making connections, building relationships and networking.

Whether just as individuals or with other groups, meaning feel free to sharing your local resources, shooting ranges, retailer/dealers etc or another website you’re part of.

Sorry we don’t encourage lurkers and the software will prune (delete) idle accounts, why?

We’re not trying to build a large database of users that don’t contribute, like a ton of FB friends you don’t really know, but a quality database where users say


er, or, say

Norm!

We don’t tolerate, er, wait, we don’t shy from picking on each other so if you need a binky or blanky just let us know and we’ll give you one before pushing you out of the sandbox :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Hello everyone,

I’m Robert and enjoy long walks though the gun show and maxing my credit cards.

I used to shoot some IDPA/USPSA and rank right with the rest of the low scoring marksmen but think of myself as a master shooter.

But I’ve not done any of that for awhile, would like to again at some point, very relaxing!

Hope to get to know you all!

I"m JTR or just John. I like all things that go bang .
I am a shotgunner by heart but also shoot pistols almost weekly .
I took several courses at the now defunct Front Sight .
And hunt most anything that has a season here in the Missouri Ozarks.
I own several shotguns, rifles and handguns .
I am also heavily involved with the Friends of NRA raising money to promote youth shooting sports . I do this to try and give todays kids a chance to learn the leasons my father taught me . So many do not have anyone to teach them .

Whats up yall. Shooterrex or just plain Rex.
Live on a farm in Kentucky. Have my own range out back out to 275 yds. Can shoot 450 yds the length of one of the hay fields if I need that far.
Rifles, shotguns, pistols, and revolvers I shoot them all. Reload some. We have groundhogs to shoot unless the dogs catch them first. Turkey and deer are plentiful. 5 ponds with the damn snapping turtles eating my fish.
Usually go out to Arizona and shoot with the 308AR bunch at least once a year. We can shoot 2000 yds out there.
I think I only have 1 factory built AR.
The rest of them I built. 9mm, 6.5 Grendel(4), 308Ar(3), 6.5 Creedmoor(2) Lost count of the 5.56 AR’s Forgot the 300BO’s, 50Beowulf, and 450 Bushmaster.

Hello all,
Many of you know me. I am ArmedEyeDoc, aka Doc, on a few forums but have been called a lot of things…most are not repeatable.
Like most here, I have a wide ranging taste in firearms. My 3 most recent additions are examples of the variety. I have posted a picture of the New Model Blackhawk in 357 on here. Since then, I acquired an Argentine Mauser in 7.65x53 that I have yet to shoot. I am also in the middle of building an AR pistol that I will forego any details since I want @shooterrex to be surprised in the desert of Arizona. It is almost done.
With work and trying to get a new house finished to move into, I don’t have much extra time (or money) to shoot or post here lately. I will get out and celebrate 'Merica next weekend though. I have family land with a shooting range that I can shoot from pistol range out to 500 yards.

Call me Joel.
I was born and raised in Texas. Moved to PA when I was 28…still here. Planning on going back home some day. Spent some time in the Marines, worked on cars, did some oil field work. Finally settled in to the tool and die trade. Still workin’ that job.
I shoot a little bit, too.

Again, good thread, I thought I knew a lot of you guys already and you surprise me by sounding like halfway decent grown ups :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Well, our bios aren’t really fact checked so, maybe only a couple of us here are “decent” grown-ups.

This is the unrepentedsinner, live in the diamond state of Delaware. Love everything that goes bang from black powder too the latest and greatest. I’ve been in law enforcement for 36 years now and I’m a NRA member and law enforcement firearms instructor (handgun and shotgun) as well as civilian instructor . Hunt to fill the freezer and play games to keep in shape. I’ve been a member of the governor’s 13 pistols for 7 years and with GSSF and idpa for longer. But my passion is for wheel guns.

I’m Kent, from Texas but living in the Ozarks since 2000.
First and foremost a Christian. Not perfect or close just a sick man (sinner) in a sick world trying to help others get to the hospital (to know God).
I’m also in IT (Own Ward Computers) and Computer Geek (TheWeeklyGeek.com) and Firearms Freak.
I love the CMP and it got me into USPSA (not so much anymore), IDPA (love it), GSSF (can take or leave it) and Steel Challenge.
Besides working at NASA on AI in the late 80’s and early 90’s, nothing super cool with me.
I am currently on the board of directors for a local shooting club, on the board of directors for the State Guard Foundation of Missouri and the board for Citizens Corps for MO CERT 1 and Christian County.
