    HELLO:
    in the milwaukee area, we are lucky to have a few different gun clubs within a short driving distance. i often find it interesting, that between these area clubs, certain shoots may work for one club, and not for the other. we have one club in the area, that has success with money shoots, shooters auctions etc. now try this same format at another club and you would probably not get one person to sign up . one club seems to attract new shooters to the sport,and seems to be new shooter friendly. where another club is more for the seasoned shooter. one club seems to excel in charity events, where another rarely would have a shoot for charity. i feel that each club is unique in their own way. i really don't know if it is owner/management style at each club, or if it is the particular shooters that attend that certain club. regardless, i try to find something good that appeals to me at each club that i attend. are certain gun clubs different like i have stated above in your area too?

    Steve so far All clubs with in a 20 mile area of my home club are all good. What I am surprised at is the lack of club to club interaction. Jr riffle, .22 pistol go club to club. I would like to see some sort of all around the club shoot. Archery,blackpowdr,pistol,shotgun,riffle. There are some clubs that have invite to the public days and some do not. ex our club Trap is open to the walk in public wen thur and sun. Newbies get a crash course in gun safety and basic rules of trap and on the line on next round. One thing that works well at our club is the fact that you can only sign up for one round at a time, Also we are very aware of who just showed up, and those that have shot will offer up their spot to the new shooters. Other clubs you will find a round sign up sheet full for 5 6 rounds with the same 5 10 people. The wait is on. Most people just do not want to do anything. 99% of our club runs on volunteer, so if it is not something of intrest enough to get the volunteers to get things running its dead from the start.

    You people are lucky to have so many clubs to choose from. I have one 30 miles away. The next is 175 miles away. Don't complain, you've got it good.

    When I recently got into shooting, more than hunting I did'nt realize how many gun clubs where in my area in such a ANTI-GUN COMMIE SOCIALIST STATE OF MA.
