Good day!
New to the forum but very interested in learning formal bullseye things! I spent a lot of time in the early/mid 2000s doing falling plate with my local club, but a move and career change ended up squelching most of my shooting fun. I was a Shooting Sports Director for many summers at the local Boy Scout Camp, and I'm quite proud to have run at least 1,000+ youth shooters through the NRA's "First Steps" program back in the day. I'm stuck at home at the moment so I pulled out some of the old gear and figured I'd try to get back into a more structured shooting hobby.
I'd like to get my Hämmerli Trailside/X-ESSE back up and running, and the old Colt pre-Woodsman just keeps on kickin' ...as long as its standard velocity Wink  I miss my now irreplaceable Ruger MkII slab side greatly (if I had known then what I know now...) but I'll eek along with a Buckmark while I still can. Thanks!

New to Bullseye, but lifelong pistol shooter. Shot air pistol pretty seriously for a few years, so comfortable with precision pistol shooting. Other interests are airplanes, as a pilot, mechanic, and builder. Live in southern MN where I can shoot out my back door when I feel like it. Hoping to find some reasonably local matches to try out. Looks like the Twin Cities has a few clubs that shoot bullseye regularly, that's probably my closest. Wish me luck!

Patrick,
There’s a great indoor winter league in Osage Iowa. Runs Nov. thru March I believe. Nicely ventilated 25 yard range. Should be a short trip for you. 
Great outdoor matches at Oakdale too!

Osage is only about 45 minutes away, thanks for the heads up. Talked to a few people in Rochester, looks like there is a winter indoor league at SEMN Sportsman Club there as well, but the range doesn't get much praise. That's only 25 minutes from me, so would be convenient if I want to shoot there.

Patrick,Where are you located ? I'm in Rochester and have shot in Southern Minnesota league for over 10 yrs.I think we have a decent range,both in and out.We shoot 50ft NMC every Mon. and Tues. at 6pm.The Fall league starts after Labor day for 13wks and Winter league after the 1st of year for 15 wks.We also have a 25/50 outside on Tues through the summer.There are over 50 shooters with some coming 40 miles in several directions.There are also 3 pilots ! 1 commercial !Some people knock our outdoor range because no drawing from holster or cross shooting.If they are into run and gun they have to go North to Pine Island.I also try to make Osage when I can for their monthly.Actually JKR scored my targets the last time I was there this past winter.

Hi Chris, nice to find a local. I'm down 63 between Spring Valley and Grand Meadow, so only about 20 minutes out of Rochester. If you know of Four Daughters Winery, that's my family and I live near there. When and if this whole Covid blows over I'd be happy to give your league a try. Is it .22 only? Thanks,

Patrick
