Shooting Range in KS???

Hi! Anybody here from Kansas? I'm from Wichita & i can't find a place to shoot past 100yrds. I know a place in Hutchinson, KS but for members only. Not to mention the wait list. Probably it will take atleast a year to get in.
I'm more than willing to pay. I appreciate any information......

Many Thanks
Dom

Re: Shooting Range in KS???

im not from KS, and hopefully somebody from here who is will speak up, but intill then, you might run over to http://www.wheretoshoot.org/ This site is run by the National Association of Shooting Ranges (NASR) and has a pretty good list of ranges no matter where you go. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "where to shoot"

Re: Shooting Range in KS???

I believe there is one up around ponca city... or at least there was one back when I was driving up there to shoot smallbore... I think. Theres 6 ranges within driving distance of OKC, but only 2 have targets past 100, and they are (club) private ranges. Its probably more than a couple of hours, but ive got 100, 200, 300 and 400yd firing points here at the house with a benchrest at the close end, and I use portable target stands for shooting further than that. Ive got 4 portables that are about 3' by 4' and one thats 11' by 8'. The big one is currently setup at 1350yds, but ive got out to 1600 or so avalable. As long as you know that all guns are always loaded, you don't stick your finger on the trigger at inapproprate times, and you don't point your muzzle at anything you can't afford to buy (including me) then youre welcome to come down and fling some bullets. The rest of you can consider that a standing invitation as well. 73089 is my zip... mapquest can tell you if its feasable.
If you can't get any satasfaction from that website, let me know. The president of the NASR just happens to be a former employer of mine. I could give him a call and see if he might be able to see if there are any that aren't on the site.

Re: Shooting Range in KS???

I'm not an expert & to be honest if ever this will be my 1st time to shoot past 100yrds. One thing i can a assure for me safety comes 1st. I appreciate your invitation & i'll keep that in mind. Regarding the website, so far no luck. I found 2 that have past 100. The 1st one for members only & invitation to get in. Next members only & members count is at max. Wait list is long & they only accept application April & October. Others only have 100yrds & several phones no longer exist or no contact information.
Anyways, i'll keep looking & on Friday we're heading to Missouri for vacation. I'm taking the kids to Table Rock & we'll stay there for a week. I'm going to check around when i get there.

Domster4u - I am a member of the Central Ks Gun Club north of Hutchinson and it has a 600 yard range. It was not hard to become member and they may still have some openings. I applied in may of this year and my membership was approved in June.
