    Great! I'll warn you now though, I've not been at all impressed with my own efforts so far.....

    I get off work around 1500, I'll give you a call around then.

    Not a problem! If you get my voicemail, it's because I'm in a meeting. I'll return the call as soon as humanly possible if I don't answer it immediately.

    I live in Fayetteville and I am looking for somebody to go to the range with. Is there anybody within a reasonable drive?

    My good friend, freshly moved from Buffalo, and I will be heading out to Range 1 probably sometime in the next couple weekends. That's a pretty easy drive from Fayetteville.

    I need to test out my newly-acquired Norinco SKS, as well as exercise a few of my handguns. We might put a few slugs through my friend's shotgun as well.

    What I plan on bringing to the range that day:
    Norinco SKS 7.62 x 39
    CZ-52 7.62 x 25
    Possibly one of my Makarov's or the Spanish Llama .380, we'll see.

    As for my friend
    Mossberg 500
    Beretta M9
    And possibly either his S&W .40 or his FEG PA-63 in 9x18 Makarov.

    I hate to bust you guy's bubble but Range one is closing June 15th. I thought about heading down there myself until someone over at TFL informed me of it's closing. Are their any ranges that allow rifles down there in Fayetville?.

    Anyone making it to the Fayetteville show this weekend? ( http://www.cegunshows.com/Show_Schedule.htm ) I may get up there Sunday afternoon if all goes well, there are a couple of parts I need to find for a current project.

    I don't know of any ranges in Fayetteville that allow rifles. I have a new to me AR I want to take out.

    Kirk, I'm done moving and raring to go (just gotta get my Mosin some ammo from a buddy of mine).

    When's a good range date for you?

    I spoke with the owner of Range 1 yesterday and he told me they were closing and selling off the inventory.
    They are having a big sale this weekend.
    I am outside Raleigh myself.

    I'm acquainted with some folks out here in Chapel Hill/Durham and would enjoy getting together with some others. Anyone interested?

    There is a range in Wayne County in Dudley ( Google maps ) I just found out about. They have been open since Sept. '05. They have 100 yd. rifle, covered 25 yd pistol with cable target holders and a second pistol bay with plates, poppers and a mover. I was just out there Sunday with my AR and M1 carbine.

    Looks good, I will have to check them out one weekend. How much is a membership and can you just show up and shoot as a guest?

    Range in Wayne County

    I don't have any range experience, except for qualifying for a CCW permit. I shoot every couple of weeks on a kinperson's place.

    I live in Lenoir county, so Dudley is doable for me. I would be shooting a 9mm Witness mostly. That is, if I'm not intruding?

    I'm down in Charlotte. I shoot fairly often at Shooter's Express in Belmont,(.45 & AR-15). If I can get some free time I can probably meet up with y'all up in your neck of the woods.

    The only gun club I know of around here is the Sir Walter Gun Club (http://www.sirwaltergunclub.com/). They may have in-club matches for rimfire, but membership is in excess of $500 last time I checked.

    Wow!


    At that price, I guess I'll just keep shooting on family land down East. Thanks anyway, though.

    $150 for a year, lower for LEO and Military (includes free CCW class, or you can transfer it to someone else if you don't need it). Don't remember what the monthy was or if they even had a daily. Call Ken and ask.

    I'm out of State right now until the 11th.

    I'm planning on heading to PDHSC this weekend, probably Saturday early afternoon with my family. Care to join us? For that matter, would anyone like to join us?

    Also, I've started a meetup group for the triangle region. Please see the link in my signature for details.

    I might be interested. I was planning on going to the Wake county range on Saturday to plink with the AR, but this might justify a change of plans.
