    The family is going to MO, to St.Louis area to be specific.
    We are going for the long 4th of July weekend.
    Are there any public rifle ranges within 50 mile radius to St.Louis?(100-yard type)
    How about gun stores in the St.Louis area?It's always fun to shop and see what others are paying for out of home state.
    Thanks for any info!

    http://www.saintlouisarms.com/ Mike is the nicest gun dealer I've met sofar!

    As far as ranges, assuming I have a day off I'd me more than happy to lead ya out to reifschnider. A free, open, unsupervised range in the middle of the wild Missouri woods. I need to sight back in my PK-A to boot.

    In Fenton, a suburb of Southwest St. Louis county, there is Denny Dennison. A great gun/sporting goods store. It's in downtown Fenton, on Highway 30 just a block from the Merrimac River.

    I would HIGHLY recommend the Busch Wildlife shooting range (MO Department of Conservation. Shooting points at 7, 15, 25, 50, 75, and 100 yards. I live in the St. Charles area, so I have been to Nassau Sporting Goods in St. Peters (off the south service road of I-70), Mike's Guns (off Highway 94 south of I-70), and there is always the Bass Pro Shop Sportsman's Warehouse at 5th Street and I-70 in St. Charles.

    Welcome to the area. Be sure to get some Ted Drewes' Frozen Custard and stop by The Pasta House for some toasted ravioli.

    Depending on which part of town you're in, either of those department of conservation ranges are good. Not sure what you're use to, but they are tightly regulated by the range officers. All the folks are friendly though. Be sure to check which days they're open, they close on all state holidays. The Denny Dennison store in Fenton is a good place to look around. Hope you enjoy your trip here.

    Southside St.Louis

    Thanks for the info all:
    Besides it being blistering hot thru the Mid-West.
    Window shopping at the various stores sounds really appealing.
    We'll be in the southside of St.Louis,270 and Tenison Ferry Rd area.
    Thanks for the info again,Happy fourth all!

    Since you are in that area, you aren't that far from the Jay Henges shooting range. I haven't been there, but I would expect a similar experience to Busch Wildlife. Just take I-44 west for a few minutes and you're there.

    Easiest Way To Denny Dennison From 270 and Tesson Ferry (which is what I think you met):

    -Take 270 north to the very next exit Gravois Road/Hwy 30 (don't even bother merging over, entrance ramp lane becomes exit lane)
    -Go Left on Gravois Road back across 270 and then get over to left
    -Turn Onto Gravois Road; 1st light after 270, very close
    -Go down short street to stop sign and turn right (still Gravois Rd I believe)
    -Follow down, cross bridge (narrow) and turn 1st right into store

    www.conservation.state.mo.us/areas/ranges/henges/

    That's the nearest conservation department range. It looks like they'll be open Saturday and Sunday. Have a nice trip. I live in the aprt of town your going to, it's nice. Might want to check out Fortell's Pizza.
