Muzzy Range in the Cities

4 posts in this topic

Anybody know of a range in the cities where I can shoot a muzzy? I'm not a member of any clubs, but would like to shoot sooner than the OTP sight in period most of those offer. Trying to work up a good powder and bullet combo well prior to the fall.

I know I've seen guys shooting muzzy's at Oakdale Gun Club but I'm not aware of any public hours during the winter.  They do have some public hours in the summer and then expanded hours leading up to the deer season.

They run a very tight firing line, tho. You won't be able to clean your gun when the line is down, which makes sustained shooting a slow process.

That is true, they generally do run a very tight line.  Although I was there a few years ago with a new rifle that I was breaking in and was running some patches through it and they let me do that on the bench while the line was down.  Of course it was a bolt action rifle and its pretty easy to verify its safe when the bolt is laying on the table next to me. 

 

Personally I appreciate them running things like they do. I'd rather have them run a tight line and have the process take more time than them getting lose with the rules.  You never know who else is on the line and what their bad habits might be. 

 

If anyone is concerned with down time I've had good luck getting there very early on a weekday during public hours or even early on a Sunday.  I've had the entire 100 yard range to myself once or twice when shooting early and never had more than a handful of guys on the entire range most mornings.  If you get lucky and have it to yourself no need to worry about down time.

    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.
