    I'm going to Atlanta 1/22-1/23. Other than that, I'll be there.

    I'm down for a Saturday. I recommend an establishment that doesn't serve alcohol.

    Are we going to hit a range after? If I'm driving to Montgomery, I'd like to make some noise.

    Howdy All.
    My first post here, after reading the board for a number of weeks.
    The closest range that I know of in/around Montgomery is the Tri-County Shooting Range, 5575 Lower Wetumpka Rd. (334-265-8865). It is a bit north of Montgomery itself and they are a friendly bunch. That is where a group of us go.

    You may want to give them a call before showing up OCing, as if memory serves they frown a little on it.

    Huh? How do you not OC at a shooting range?

    I think it is just OC outside of the actual firing area.

    I'll be there! Also, if a range doesn't like my OC'ing simply from the car to their door, I'd rather not patronize that establishment.

    For what it is worth, there is also a gun show in Montgomery this weekend. I'm going to try to make it Sunday after church if I can get the family obligations settled.




    Can you give specifics on the gun show?

    Thanks. I usually get email notices about CASC shows but I haven't heard anything about this one and they haven't posted a schedule for 2009 on the gunshow website.

    A 50-foot indoor pistol caliber (and .22LR) range in the city limits (Steve's Gun Shop). There's a good outdoor range east of Mobile (Wilcox Shooting Center) with 100- and 300-yard rifle ranges, a 25-yard pistol/rifle range, and trap for you scattergun fans. I hear there's also a good range in Pascagoula, MS, but I haven't been there.
