Gentlemen, 
 I think I posted this six or eight months ago, but I am about to move to Lexington Kentucky in a few weeks and I am looking for a Bullseye shooters in the area. I fully plan to drive down to match masters in Tennessee but it would be great if there were clubs or events closer to Lexington to participate in. If anyone knows Of a club or league in the area that does NRA Percision pistol I would greatly appreciate the info.
Thanks!

Hi Andrew,

Me and GPTuners (another user on here sometimes) are near Lexington. The range in Wilmore hasn't run any bullseye matches in a couple years unless they started up again just in the last few months. GPTuners and I shoot mostly CMP Service Pistol but would be happy to practice with you if you'd want and have some fun matches. We mostly shoot in Frankfort, KY at an outdoor range so we can do 50-yard work. There are 2 really good indoor ranges in Lex: Bud's Gun Shop and Semper Fi Firearms. But both max out around 20-25 yards.

There is a club in Chandler, Indiana that holds 2700's regularly but it is over a 2 hour drive. We go there once a year for their EIC match. Cincinnati Revolver Club I believe does some NRA Bullseye still and would be the closest I know of.

Hit us up if you'd like to practice or just have a fun match between ourselves.

Hi Andrew! 

I second everything Chris said. Maybe with a few more bullseye shooters, we can actually revive the match in Wilmore.  Cool

Hit up Chris- he's much more active on here. After that, I'll just give you my number. I don't interweb much. Wink

Great to hear guys,
I look forward to linking up with you. I too am focused on service pistol and shoot only irons and 4lb trigger, I really only do the nra stuff for practice. Hopefully I can convince some cadets at UK to shoot service pistol too.

We shoot at the Southern Indiana Rifle and Pistol Club near Borden, IN. www.sirapc.com We have a match scheduled for this Saturday.
It is not too far from Lexington, but, it is across the toll bridge. Contact me for more information. Heck, I even have a spare bed. DennyMac

So I'm guessing you're the guy in the green-to-gold program I met at SIRPC and Camp Perry this year.   I live In Frankfort, when C-Train and GPTuners also shoot, but we have no matches at the Frankfort club.  I'd sure like to have more local matches to shoot, instead of trying to get my practice in by shooting on my own while guys blast away with their rifles on both sides of me.

Any luck finding any more matches close to Lexington? 

Has anybody heard anything about Bullseye coming back to BGSL in Wilmore?

Thanks, Vern.  I was thinking about giving them a try.  I wish everybody didn't start their matches at 9 am.

For a change of pace and scenery you could travel up I-64 East and situated just East of Huntington, WV is the Putnam County Gun Club, located at Eleanor, WV. They hold monthly NRA Sanctioned 3-gun Precision Pistol 1800s, April thru September. In conjunction with the 1800, they also hold "practice" Service Pistol, .22 Rimfire & DR Matches. Great group of dedicated Precision Pistol shooters that would make you feel welcome. Shot there many times, well-run matches.
Send me a PM for match directors contact info if interested.

Thanks for the info! Been shooting with Southern Indiana Rifle and Pistol club (Borden and Georgetown, IN) and Cincinnati Rifle and Revolver club when I am able. Both about a 2 hour drive away. I may check out the Putnam County matches later in the year.

I went to BGSL in Wilmore today, looked at the pistol range and all the bullseye stuff is long gone. The former bullseye range has the turning target equipment removed and no benches. Its now an action pistol range. Oh well.
