My schedule is insane with traveling for work and my custody agreement for my little girl. If you guys get enough people to justify a get together, I will do everything I can to make it.

I have been more interested in getting out to shoot my AR15. But will follow along to see what happens.

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.
Any responces yet on the get together at Top Gun ? I can go most any time.

Its a SP1 Colt. A1 sights, triangle guards, no F/A, classic retro with exception of the rare Coltguard factory finish.

Midwest Glockers

Have been thinking about a old school Colt 3x20 scope

It shoots better than I do. Eats like a pig. Costs a lot more to feed than my dogs. Just wish I could feed it twice a day as well.

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.

I just spoke with Top Gun, and have set a date of Monday Jult 14, at 6:30 or 7:00 pm/ They have reserved the class room for us, and I will bring "snacks" from one of my business's.

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 recommended? I see it's only $3 for an hour. Any other good outdoor ranges?

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the offer to go shooting with you. I'll check my schedule and see when I have some free time.
