    I am looking for folks in the Atlanta area, especially the south side of Atlanta. I am going to be living in Fayetteville and am looking for someone to get together with to shoot.

    I shoot at Autrey's Armory now, but don't really know anyone in that area to shoot with. I love to shoot, but it is more fun when there is someone else at the range that you know.

    If you haven't been to Autrey's, it is a nice place. Plenty of knowledgable folks there and an indoor range.

    I look forward to hearing from you Atlanta folks.

    Hey

    I am in the South Newnan area. I usually shoot at the west point public range. It's really a nice place but with gas as high as it is I might start shooting at lock stock and barrel in Grantville. The range fee is probably cheaper than gas.

    Fayetteville is a pretty good trip for shooting but I would be willing to try it out once or twice. Or, I could send you a map to west point.

    Thanks, Brandon. I am disabled and don't drive very far by myself, but let me know the address and I can see what the distance would be.

    Autrey's is the only range that I have ever used. I am in LA, Lower Alabama and there are no ranges here. But there are lots of hunting land and such. I have a couple of buddies with places in the country as well as the hunting land that I shoot at.

    I live in Cumming, GA. (north of Atlanta). I have been going to this new indoor range which is very close to my house. How far away is this from where you are?

    Obviously, I am new to the area.

    about 60 miles.

    Also interested in a THR Southside shoot. Hoping to join South River Gun Club in the next couple of weeks.

    And Mac Attack...I'm pretty close to you ;)

    You don't have some steel plates on a sawhorse in your driveway do you?

    Kennesaw, north side of Atlanta. I'm about 50 miles out. If you're ever in the Marietta area, though, let me know!

    Thanks to all who have responded so far. I will be there in a couple of weeks. My wife has been trying to find a job here in the Montgomery area, but hasn't had any luck. We were married in Nov. and all she has found is a temp position and that ended last week. She is now looking back in Georgia.

    I still have two of my grown kids here and my dad, so I will be going back and forth alot. But, as I am disabled, I won't have to worry about missing work or anything. She still has family there so things will be better for her to work there.

    Anyway, I have loved guns all my life and was very please to find Autrey's there in Fayetteville. I am from a very small town, which I prefer, but there are no ranges around here. I think that there may be one in Montgomery and other places in Alabama, but not any really close to me.

    My wife and I recently relocated to the Atlanta area from Montgomery. We hated it there, every minute of it.

    I'm north of town, in Cherokee County. I usually shoot at Ed's Guns in Marietta or Pannell's in Woodstock.

    I'm in Kennesaw too. I don't get down that way too often, but I might be up for a group shoot sometime.

    The South Atlanta Practical Shooters hold a match every Tuesday night at Autrey's. Good matches, great people. They are run by Bill and Cindy Noyes, two of the nicest people you'd ever meet. Tell them Scott (the tax professor) said "Hi."

    Hello Fellas

    Jake Salyards here

    I live in Newnan (south of Atlanta) and I work up in Duluth.

    I think maybe we should figure out all the local gun guys so we could have a mini-gun show & trade session a once or twice a year. Plus we can all go shooting together.

    Always good to meet other local gun folks.
