    The club closest to Illinois Wesleyan would probably be Darnall's Gun Works. A small 6 day a week commercial operation about 10 miles west of town.

    For registered targets look at Peoria Skeet and Trap, Decatur Gun Club and Warrensberg Sportsmens Club. Each about an hour from Illinois Wesleyan.

    There are also some one and two trap clubs near the towns of Leroy, Saybrook, Sibley, Secor and Pontiac. But they are private clubs.

    Feel free to give me a shout when you get to Bloomington for any more info.

    skeet2day, I never have any issues with anybody. I conduct myself in a respectful manor despite the fact that everyone thinks I'm a liberal.
    Does Darnall's have locker or anything, as I doubt I'll be able to keep my gun in my room?

    Darnall's is very close for you. Talk to Ron Darnall about your questions. He is a great guy.

    Hey Trappy. Look me up when you get to IW, and I'll get you a proper introduction to Ron Darnall. IW is a great school. The night life is a little dead around town, but it's not too bad a drive bad to Chicago or St. Louis.

    My gorgeous niece is going to IW next year. Stay away from her or she'll beat up your liberal ass. Ha ha.

    She's too conservative for you buddy. She couldn't stand to listen to you political tripe and your bragging about your intelligence.

    Well I'm really not that liberal, and certainly don't brag about my intelligence. Differences in opinion just make things interesting!

    Word to the wise then, Sonny. You have bragged about your college admission scores, your grades and all the colleges that you have qualified for. I don't forget bud.

    Trappy there is a club that shoots their games on Thursday evenings just south of and east of Leroy. It's about 20 minutes from your school.. Practice up before you go there those boys will take your money and have fun doing it. A great bunch of guys at the LRPC, Leroy Rifle and Pistol Club. Have fun and get a good education. Dan
