    I'm preparing a mailing to advertise a trap league and counted fifty-eight (58) gun clubs/sportsmens associations/fish and games/etc. within a radius of about fifty miles from my home club in Milford, Mass. Not bad considering that if I were to drive fifty miles due east, I'd be over ten miles out into the Atlantic Ocean!

    How many clubs within fifty miles, anybody else? And where?

    For me, I've got one at about 60 miles, one at 85 and 3 at about 100-120...you're a lucky fella.

    I'd just like to know what or where your club is. I am from Milford [presently in PA] and visit often. I can never find a place to shoot.

    I count 4 at about 50 miles, and feel fortunate to be able to still drive.

    Skeet-


    I'm in LeRoy. It's not 50 mi. from me to the eastside clubs, and it's not 50mi. to Buffalo. I can't go 50 mi. to the north, without going into the lake, and 50 mi. to the south takes me well into the southern tier. There has to be 50 clubs within my 50 mi. radius.

    Seven. 3 throw registered targets. The State Shoot is at one of them(Kingsburg).

    If I drive 75 miles either way, there are a couple more; plus sporting clays. I'm pretty lucky. Broke....but lucky.

    LA, how come you guys don't throw any registered targets?? Even a small club can at least run a Marathon!
    FYI Westford (Ma) Sportman's Club is having a marathon this Saturday, 16's Dubs and Caps...we have but two fields. We are open to the public every Sunday at 1PM YEAR ROUND!

    What type of League are you trying?? -you have a private message!

    Slugger+ Come on! No way is there any place in Illinois where you've got 20 clubs within 50 miles. This is trapshooters.com, not bullsh_tters.com.

    Browning Gal: I'll probably be at your club over the weekend.

    In the Los Angeles Area, there's only one. maybe two if you strech the 50 miles some. A damn shame for 14 million people.
