I'm not new to the Forums but for some reason just noticed the Illinois section. Live in Okawville which is about 45 miles east by southeast of St Louis, Mo.

:welcome: I'm about 35 minutes west of you. We should do some shooting sometime. Any good spots to shoot out your way?

Afraid not. I have a friend that I go shooting with once in awhile at his kinfolks farm down in Pinckneyville but no regular place. The Caseyville Gun Club relocated to Mascoutah. That would be worth it except I hear that they not only charge $200 a year for membership but also a monthly dues to help them with their legal fees while fighting Mascoutah and Scott AFB to stay open there. Can't see that kind of money for two firing points where I have to wait my turn to shoot 200 yards. That's why I sold my M1903A1, M-1 and M1A a few years ago. Nowhere to shoot them in this socialist state.

Yeah that's what I have also come to learn... Quite unfortunate for us. Hoping to relocate to a more gun-friendly state soon.
