    I'm planning a trip to the Indiana Gun Club to check out a few guns and maybe do a little shooting.Can anyone tell me if they are very reasonable on reloading component prices.Do they let you try before you buy? and the girlfriend wants to know how far the nearest casino is? The website doesnt offer much info and I didnt want to bother anyone with a lot of questions phone call.How are they to do business with?Thanks in advance....Hugo "Moe" Rinke

    I was just there a few weeks ago. I didn't see much in the way of reloading supplies. They have some nice guns, though not as many as when Steve Smith and his dad owned it. Some very nice used guns. 3 or 4 Seitz's right out on the rack, and a bunch of Ljutics, and Perazzi's. I suspect they're consignment guns, but I don't know for sure. Prices seem a little high,but maybe they deal.
    Nice guys running the place. I didn't know there were any casinos
    around, but I'm sure there's nothing close.


    Sorry I can't be more help.

    I'll be coming from the North (Mich.) The casino is just 20 minutes from Indianapolis but dont know how that relates in distance to the gun club.

    they do have reloading components - wads, shot, powder, etc. AA primers are $157 per 5000. Can't remember wads or powder prices. Magnum shot is $34.95 a bag as I recall. No #9's I don't think you're allowed to try out the reloading components. 8 >)

    Casino is north about 30-45 minutes - 30 miles give or take up/down the interstate.

    Prices are sometimes negotiable. If you're from Michigan it might be cheaper to have purchased gun sent back to FFL in your state rather than pay 7% Indiana sales tax depending on the price of the gun.

    Was just there this saturday. Phil has a lot of reloading componets at very reasonable prices. You need to ask about componets because it is not stored where you can look at it. It is stored in another building on site. I know that Steve Smith would let you shoot a used gun before you buy but not sure about Phil. I did it a few times but I knew Steve pretty well. As for casinos there is one in Anderson at hoosier park approx 15 miles north just off I-69. If you are comeing from the south there is one in Shelbyville at Indiana Downs. Not sure of the miles but would guess 25-30. Hope this helps and good luck. Trent

    I shoot there about every weekend, I highly recommend IGC. Phil is the owner/operator, in case that wasn't obvious from other posts and he does allow shooters to try used firearms.

    Reloading prices are as follows (Some specifics since I was making my shopping list on Sunday).

    Magnum Shot $35.95/25lbs bag, $34.95/25lbs bag x 10
    Windjammer $17.50/1k, Downrange $18.50/1k
    Rem 209 $35/1k
    Clay Dot $98/8lbs

    He also has two reloaders for sale, 9000H for $550 and I think a 650/20Ga for 175 (might be wrong on that one though).

    There's also a Casion Live! in Shelbyville, about 45 minutes south.

    It would be a yes to shooting the guns before you buy, anything used is available for shooting, Phil has two prices no trade cash price and of course a trade in price is usually what you see on the tag and on most trade in's he will try to be fair, He learned the trade from Steve & Veldon good luck and hope you find the perfect gun!!!
