    I grew up in Milwaukee. I live in Lake Co. IL now. I shoot at McMillers and Bristol on occasion. Never been to Shooters but would like more info as their website is down.

    I would attend a group shoot as well. :wavey:

    Shooters is a small range with I belive 10 lanes and two or three for arrows. Also at shooters it is mainly filled with police officers since they work real close with the police departments! I think it's an awesome little place to go shoot that is inexpensive and close to home for me.

    They have a few weapons that you can rent just like most other places. Everyone in the building seems to have a good attitude and I enjoy spending some of my money there.

    I heard there is a nice place in Waukegan, Ill to shoot. I would like to go there but I have no idea where it's at and I have no one that really llikes to go shooting with me.

    I would like to get something together where we could maybe get some people together so we can have a good time at the range.

    Hope to get some range time at a few different places close to the Ill/WI border. Let me know whats there I would enjoy seeing some new faces and ranges!

    I believe that place you are thinking about in Waukegan is called Outdoorsman. I dont like it. Its cold in the winter, poor ventilation and dim lights. Not to mention I never felt safe there. I will take an extra 15mins and drive to shooters. Im pretty sure shooters is owned by a racine sheriff. I have seen Bass Pro's range in Gurnee Mills and it looks really nice. I've always wanted to shoot there. Do you shoot IDPA or anything at shooters? I think im gonna join.

    No I just pretty much go to Shooters and just rent a lane and go through a couple of boxes of ammo. I would like to try some news places. I need to get to see some new faces sicne shooters is filled with a lot of police officers.

    Milwaukee here too, well more Waukesha, but still.

    I find myself frequenting Fletcher Arms in Waukesha, but am looking for a good outdoor pistol range. I've been wanting to try McMiller; hopefully I'll get around to actually going this summer.

    Anyone know of any decent ranges or gun clubs around the Hartford area?

    I walked into Badger once and it felt so creepy I left.
    When I'm at Fletcher, it feels right. Very nice people.

    And to quote a police officer friend of mine, who's often detailed to watch Badger & stop people as they leave... "Stay away!"

    As for ammo, the best prices I've found are at AmmunitionToGo.com

    BTW, hi everyone! I'm new to GT, live in Milwaukee, and am active on both Icarry.org & opencarry.org

    I am from Hartford area, I go to Midwest Shooters in Lomira (www.mwshooters.com). Its a really nice place with 4 lanes. If you want to join a club there is the Hartford Gun club and another one on Holy Hill road, both are outdoor courses.

    Another Milwaukeean here. Now that we're getting CCW I'm getting a bit more serious about my practice time. I used to be a member of Schultz Rod & Gun Club out in Muskego, nice range and trap as well. They run a lot of pistol competition out there. The same group runs a winter pistol competition down at Shooters in Racine.

    For local ranges I usually go to either Badger on 43rd St or The Shooters Shop on 84th St.
