    Folks,

    We are getting close to our Fort McCoy, WI shooting event which will be held September 10-12, 2010 at the military base Fort McCoy. We will be having a 100 meter handgun event, a mid-range rifle 100 meter to 500 meter and a long range event from 550 meters to 1,000 meters (1,100 yards Max).

    This is our 4th event at Fort McCoy and we are working well with the staff. The civilian program that we initiated has grown some roots as well. As we speak the folks at Fort McCoy have been pouring concrete and getting the berm’s ready for the open to non-military range as well as the trap shooting range. This a major step forward for the shooting sports and the folks of WI!

    This is a result of a GREAT garrison commander who is a supporter of the shooting sports as well as 2 years of a successful pilot program with the NCSA, LTD. Bearing in mind prior to this program civilians were not allowed access to Fort McCoy this is good news for all!

    The NCSA, LTD will continue to promote the shooting sports as well as working to open more place for civilian shooting. I hope to see a lot of folks at the Fort McCoy shooting event. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me via phone or email.

    Sounds liker a good time. I'd check it out since I live only 4 miles from there, but I'll be in Tomahawk that weekend for the annual Harley Open House/MDA Fall Ride. Is there any other competitions that are held there? My youngest would really like to get into some form of handgun competition, but organized events for novice shooters is pretty much nil around here. When is the civilian range to be opened? Will it be longer than 100yds/m?

    keep checking our website events section for updates on events.

    The civilian range I do not know for sure when it will be open or the details, but I will in 2 week or so. I have been requested to get there a day early to get a tour of the complex.
