    I managed to have a good day with Garrett and Miles. High and dry where we shoot from and the field wasn't even muddy! All the plates will need more paint

      Always a good day when you get to shoot. Always a better day when the field is dry.

        Agreed, it was a good day! Weather was perfect and it felt good to go out and ring some steel. That beer afterwards tasted great!

          I'll make sure we fire up the grill along with the beers next time!

            I got the floating shooting platform finished. Tested it out a little bit. I think it should work pretty good.

              Doesn't look like it's the most portable thing... it would fit where we shoot from at my place though.

                I'll be headed out about lunch time for a little while if someone wants to come. I know it's short notice.

                  Thanks for the invite but already made plans with my cousin and a guy from work to shoot at Shiocton. Perhaps another time.

                      Steel shoot at the Columbus sportsmens range at 5:30 tonight. They have paper and steel shoots in alternating mondays there. Today will be a test run for Garrett and I. As long as he doesn't puss out on account of a few sprinkles

                        Thanks for posting this! I'll be making it to a few of these for sure. I'll be the guy with the nice rig that can't shoot for shit.

                          Well, not only did Garrett back out but I did too. Looked a bit more than sprinkles down there. Down right ugly! Maybe next week for the paper

                            Geno, a test run? Nothing like a good trigger pull with a little camaraderie afterwards. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks.

                            Cheers

                              Yeah, kind of a test run of the new spot I guess. To see how it is. This is he first summer they are doing this is what I was told.

                              Lookin forward to seeing everyone at the Hilton!

                                Lol, I was practicing my Chinese soldering skills last night. Took me about an hour to solder up my data cable to tether the laser to the Trimble. Those tiny pins are a pain in the arse to work with. All is good and I didn't have to pay out the rear to Vectronix for a stinking cable. looking forward to some field time. See you all in a couple weeks.

                                Geno, I'll let you know about Monday, it's tentative as I have a few shop projects I want to get at before heading over to Will's next week.

                                  If it's not pouring for a third week in a row, I'll go. The storms down there were a bit much for me to make the ride to find out they were cancelled or something

                                    A few of us shot there in 2015 at their July balloon shoot, it was a nice setup for shooting.

                                    Cheers

                                      Hey all! I'm a little late to the party. Er, Forum, but thought I'd check in. I'm in Oshkosh, but I grew up out in the cranberry country west of Wisconsin Rapids (actually closer to Babcock and Pittsville). I've been spending a lot of time with handguns over the past few years, but am starting to get back in to long range shooting with my rifles. Hope to get a chance to shoot with some of y'all at some point in the future.

                                        Theres a bunch of us that hang in the Pittsville area that are into shooting, I used to post a lot of stuff here as to what is going on, it seems Facebook has taken over some on staying in the loop but the WI. Thread here is still a good place to see what is going on in the area. There is a lot of steel punchers here that can pass along a ton of good advice as well as some that stretch out to 2 miles in which is a whole different Science class. So stay involved hopefully you can hook up in some good camaraderie and shooting - most of all questions - ask away, good people here.

                                        Cheers

                                          As much as I hate it I gotta ask what exactly to search for on Facebook. I'm 29 and kind of a technological recluse but I suppose I might look into it if rifles were involved. Thanks. And before all you older gents write me off as one of those yuppie kids, I don't like them either.

                                            Some of our best shooters are 29 - 30+ so don't count yourself short.

                                              Search for Wisconsin Precision Rifle Steel Challange. That's the page where we run PRS style matches down in Racine. Also look on Facebook or Google for Border Wars Series.

                                                Or start shooting with Merc and oneshot, they keep a guy in the loop pretty well. It only takes one or two matches and you know enough guys to keep you busy shooting a lot!
