    Whazzzupp! Joker19 (almost 20 jokers-scary) here reporting from the mean streets of Dodge City. Yes were still riding horses and shooting each other over can-can dancers.

    I just acquired my first Glock last Saturday. A new in box 3rd gen G19. Asked people on a local CCW forum and the G19 came very highly recommended. Was able to run 100 rds of remington umc through it at the range on Sunday (the range is 45 miles away, yes even in Dodge City we do not have a pistol/rifle range) and was pretty impressed.
     
  2. Welcome aboard! Spent most of my teen years out your way. Near Elkhart actually. Really surprised at the scarcity of outdoor ranges here near Wichita too.

    Glad to meet ya! Yeah it is kinda sad the lack of ranges around here. I think in my little corner of the state there is Larned and Garden City.

    From McPherson and bought a G22 yesterday. I have a lot of handguns but this is my first Glock and I'm really looking forward to giving it a try. Also, I was a new member to GT as of yesterday.

    Not too far away in Ottawa. Are you the same smoker from KSCCW.com? If so, have you heard anything about when the site will be back up?

    I've never been to one of the PD shoots. I've only neen back in KS for 2 years now after pastoring in TN, MO, & IL. I grew up in Bonner Springs and my wife is from Topeka...so its good to be "home."

    Yes I am one in the same, the KSCCW was up briefly yesterday but had some more issues, I'm sure it will be back soon. There was a guy that had the c-store west of WalMart in Ottawa that had a couple shoots north of Garnett. I never did make them & just wondered if there was anything happened down there. I have a few loaded just waiting for a good time to shoot now.

    Hey, Bradley! Do you have recommendations for Topeka area services? CCH instructor? Additional training? Favorite fun shop? Range?

    Kaw Valley Gun Club; indoor range over on Button road in one of those storage places west of the Good Year plant. Kevin teaches pistol classes and they have a concealed carry class too. He's got a lot of GLOCK literature and stuff from when he used to loan them for shooting on the range there.
    Been to Capital City off the Interstate, Valencia exit, but you have to be "exclusive" or something to get in there. Kind of hard to get a membership, but they have shoots from time to time.
    I always like to go up to Meriden and see that guy there in the little strip mall on the east side of K-4 near the south end of town. Sells suppressors and all kinds a stuff.
    I'll mention on here when I'm headed to Kaw Valley and maybe we could meet up sometime. Got my eye on a Glock 22 I might work up the change to purchase sometime before summer.
    Haven't really had to have any "services" done yet.
    Mostly just go to Dick's and Academy a lot to look at stuff or purchase occasionally. I like Academy, but they draw more excise revenue than anyone else in Kansas!
