    I was thinking today, and I'm trying to set up a range day here in a month or two down on the DNR land in Pacific Junction. Anybody interested in participating?

    Participants would bring their own firearms and ammunition (of course), and it'd be a great way for a meet and greet. Plus, what better of a day could it be, being able to pop off some rounds and enjoy the good company of fellow THR members and their friends.

    Let's bring this gun community closer! What say you?

    Let this thread be a discussion of different little challenges, scheduling, and the like.

    Sound good. It'll probably be on a Sunday, my only day off, sometime between like 1 an 430

    I would be interested. Sounds like fun as long as this is a safe place to shoot.

    Sounds good. Any ideas for challenges? Little competitive games and what-not?

    I am not familiar with the area. What kind of distance are we talking about?

    About 20 or so miles south of Council Bluffs. Members could maybe meet at WalMart here in Manawa?

    A rimfire rifle match would be cool.

    I'm game, I'm about 35 minutes south and east of Pacific Junction, never been to the DNR area before but always up for some range time and meeting others.

    Let me get some rounds stocked up and I'll get a date figured out. It'll be on a Sunday, my only day off, if y'all are available.

    Talking to a chap (45bthompson) I think we should make the first get-together just a range day/ meet and greet where fellow members can get to know each other and see everyone's actual interests, and later on down the road we can set up some fun, competitive matches.

    Sound good?

    I'm thinking sometime later this month or early May, on a Sunday, most likely, if anyone is interested in going.

    Hey guys, just so you know, the land I had planned on holding the meet is closed down for a while while they work on the levees. So we can either wait until it's opened up, or we can try and find another place to shoot free-of-charge?

    Thanks for the update LJ. I am not familiar enough with the area (SW Iowa) to recommend and alternative location.

    A buddy said he knew of one, but he honestly confuses me beyond belief, so.

    Sounds cool. I'll stay tuned to see if I can make it (date and place dependent).
