    Is there trap shooting at Buckely AFB? How do civilians gain access? Also I heard that they had a legal ground level wobble. Is this true?

    The only time I know that non member civilians are allowed on Buckley (Tri-Service Gun Club) is when they are having a registred trap or skeet shoot. The current contact is Paul Dible. If you go to the ATA website, you can find info about the club and Paul's phone number.

    The club has 2 traps, and 5 skeet fields. I don't know about a wobble trap, but it has been a while since I was there. After the 911 attack, they closed off access for a while and then when they started holding shoots again, they required all guns must be cased and locked and they would escort you on and off the base between the gate to the club. The next reg. shoot is 8/1/09 and it is the last shoot of the year.

    At our nearby AFB you can be sponsored on as a guest. Best way is to have the club manager sponsor you onto the base if the manager is receptive to that idea. Also, I believe, an active military member can bring you on as a guest.
    These policies may vary from base to base , not sure. Just know what happens here. Colonel

    I talked to a TSGC member today and he told me you have to have a back ground clearance check in advance before you can have access on the base. This is what he told me about 6 hours ago. To me this seems too restrictive for a club to have an ATA shoot, but again, I would suggest you contact the TSGC rep to find out for sure.
