Greater Chicagoland Airgun Shooter Head Count
I'm fairly new to the sport of airgunning, having only been shooting for around a year and a half. However, I'm an old hand at starting big projects! I'm a member of the Hickory Hills Rod and Gun Club in Plainfield, IL and I'm planning on resurrecting their old field target program. As I understand it they used to have one and the organizer died and the program dried up with him. That was so long ago that they had even tossed the knock-down targets by the time I joined the club.
But I digress, I've hosted a couple of fun shoots already, which were advertised on a different forum. Now that I've found you guys I figure I should get you all into the mix! How many folks on here are from the Chicagoland area? I don't yet have sufficient equipment to host a sanctioned field target match, but I'm talking with the club owners to see if I can get them to pay for materials so I can make the rest of the targets we need. Ostensibly, my case is made stronger by a good showing at fun-shoots and a good response on the forums!
I also have plans to trick local kids into enjoying airguns, but that's for another post.
Let me know what you guys think about a new club in the Chicago area, and I look forward to staying active on here with all of y'all!
Hi Joe, I live near Ohare. I currently shoot at BAGA, with DonC(he shoots at hickory as well) your last open shoot was on a field target match weekend, or I would have come. I have some Gamo targets that you could possibly use, but we need to talk. DonC has my number, get it from him. Look forward to talking and having another FT place to shoot.
