    Anybody know where there are some dynamic ranges in WI (especially the SE section)? I would like to practicing drawing, footwork, etc., but am not sure if I am ready for IDPA type stuff yet.

    I'd also be interested in finding this out. Currently I just practice when up north at my cabin, but wouldn't mind having someplace closer than a 5 hour drive to do so.

    There is also the Oconomowoc Sportsmen's Club on Oconomowoc, WI.

    I was unsure about attending a IDPA or USPSA match at first too, but once I got there all was fine. Let them know you are a new participant and they will help you along. Be sure to ask them about their safety policies, it is a little more strict than most indoor ranges that I attend, but I think most indoor places are too lenient on safety.

    Here is a calender of events...

    They run a outdoor "league" at Schultz (Muskego) on Tuesday nights, I think it might be done for the season though. You can contact Larry Schneider (larrys AT ndtspecialists.com) and ask him about the outdoor league, he runs it. It's a league, but if you don't want to commit to shooting every week you can just pay $10 for that week (that is what I do), so no commitments.

    I stay away from ranges, that employ range nazi's.

    What do you mean by "range nazi's"? Any range that runs IDPA or IPSC must be run in a very safe manner. You have people with all different skill levels going as fast as they can go and it it imperative that they run the range with Safety always #1. There are no "nazis" at these high speed shooting events. You will only encounter people who are doing their level best to keep you and everyone else safe while at the same time providing all with an exciting test of their skill level.

    I shoot the occasional USPSA match at Schulz's. They're pretty good with beginners, and have some excellent shooters out there. I can't justify the cost of 150 rounds of ammo for a day, so I usually just stick with the indoor ranges.

    They also have the occasional bowling pin or steel matches, but I'm not sure if they let people set that up just on their own.



    good luck,
