    Hello proneblocked, new guy here myself, I'm just 18 miles down the road from you. Give me a holler if you want to play with guns or just shoot the bull, figuratively speaking of course.

    Welcome to sanity Proneblocked,

    Hey, You a gamer?

    I don't know if there are any Waffle House restaurants in the area but an afternoon, Sunday get together with a bunch of like minded OCers might be great fun. Coffee, bull and strategy might be on the menu in the winter but some range work might be in the cards this spring.

    Waddaya think 'bout that?

    Welcome to the forum. A good friend of mine was born and raised in Avoca 84 years ago. I didn't know there were any ranges in the area. Probably a private deal, eh?

    Yeah, not too many people really know its there. Its open to the public provided you you purchase a year membership for $25. There is a newly rebuilt lean-to with 3 benches and berms which are staggered every 50 yrds or so. Only downside is it's right next to the sewage treatment. Its just west of the village behing the electrical substation.

    Who runs it? Can you bring guests? I'm not worried about the treatment plant; my shooting would probably stink anyway.

    Unsure who owns it. President is Richard N Morton...at least thats what it says on the membership card. Guests are welcome. Every time I go there, there's noone there. Its kinda shoody though. When you pay for your membership they give you a card with the combination to the lock keeping the swinging gates shut but the lock never works. Alot of times the gate is open anyway.

    I should also mention that membersip cards can be purchased at the Shell station in Avoca...takes 2min. to fill out application and they never deny anyone.
