    I talked to a fellow there today. They are waiting on licenses and such to go through. They were hoping things would be taken care of by the end of the month.

    I hope so, they have a gun I want. :^)

    Veldon is retired and Steve is joining him for now, at least for the gun business. Veldon has moved back to Frontier and Phil is going to take over operation of IGC. Gun sales will resume when proper licenses are in hand. Registered shooting is in the plans for the third Sunday. The Smiths said they have NO plans to reopen Frontier for shooting.

    Frontier is not at Fortville but Roachdale. Only two or three people really know just what is going on but none of them are on this site . I have not ASK Veldon Smith as it,s none of my Business but we will know in time .

    IGC remains open under a lease newly signed by Phil who has been there for quite some time.

    Yes, the interior is currently completely devoid of guns for sale at this time.

    Phil has applied for, but not yet received his FFL license,hence no guns on the floor. It is my understanding that Phil has purchased some guns from Steve to start with an initial inventory. He will also be carrying the Browning line of guns and accessories to include clothing. Gun inventory will be placed once the FFL is issue.

    The club hours are the same as always. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
    Practice trap, skeet and 5 stand. 25 round practice is $4.00 for members and $6.00 for non members. No registered targets.

    He does have components for sale - last I heard shot is $27 per bag.

    I am led to believe that a number of recent and not so recent changes had occured between Steve and the ITA including renotiated lease terms and Steve's loss of the shell house concession at the 2008 state trap shoot. I have also heard rumors that the ITA is considering moving the state shoot to Columbus,Indiana. This could most probably be confirmed or denied by the ITA Board.

    The above issues may give rise to more speculation re: the departure of Steve from IGC, they would certainly seem to indicate the relationship may have become too strained to continue.

    This is all speculation - certainly time may tell re: the actual circumstances of the management changeover.

    Just an update to this post.

    I was just at IGC having a talk with Phil and in general saying hi. It does look a bit different without the guns, kinda like the state shoot without the lines, LOL. Lots of shooters there and everything is just like it was. Phil is going to update the look of the place a bit while it's empty. He still has a shells and reloading componets for sale at good prices.

    Steve will be depleating his inventory via IGC, when Phil gets all of his paperwork in order, and a few gun shows. If there is a particular gun on the site that has peaked your intrest, let Phil know.

    Blakester,

    Phil will have guns for sale, but it may be a couple of months before his paperwork is all done. All of the T's need to be crossed and I's dotted if you know what I mean.

    I've only bought gun's from Phil at IGC. I'd call or email and ask him to look them over for me. He would give his No Bull opinion and I'd buy!. His description's were alway's on the money and it's been my pleasure dealing with him!. When his FFL is in place I have no doubt he and the IGC will be Great!.

    I have purchased all my guns from steve and he is an upstanding guy that has always treated me fairly and honestly.It absolutely sucks to hear of all of this and i hope it all gets resolved.This gun club has been facing many challenges over the past few years by recieving lawsuites from all those high society neighbors building those high dollar homes.Wouldn't you think if you were building a house next to a gun club there would be noise!!! DUHHHH!!!!
