Whos from St. Louis?

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

JJ

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.

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.

Thanks for the info went to Henges last fall,nice range but alot of rules such as slow fire only. Not much fun with AR or similar rifles. Looking For something less formal. I shoot pistols at Top Gun in winter. Prefer out doors in summer.

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.

I suppose there are no gun shows in St Louis. Not much action on this forum.

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.
