    Well my trigger finger is getting really itchy, it's been much much too long. Does anybody know of any indoor range within 20 minutes of Bloomington that allows you to rent handguns? Also, do you have to be 21 to rent one? (I'm 20) Thanks for your help guys.

    Check out G.A.T guns, I believe it's in Dundee. You can rent pistols there not sure about age.

    Dundee is a long way from Bloomington. I'm pretty sure you have to be 21 just to buy ammo for a handgun so I would bet you have to be 21 to rent a handgun. I had to have my mother rent me guns from the range when I was under 21 and most of the time the ranges want to have two people 21 or over to show their ID and FOID cards to rent a gun. If you're ever up around my way (southwest of Chicago) I would be willing to let you shoot some of my handguns at the range.

    Don't believe there are any within 20 minutes of Bloomington.

    Hey Trappy. We are having a SASS Cowboy shoot at the range (Darnall's) on Saturday morning. The indoor range will not be open until 1:00 PM after the shoot. If you would like to shoot with the cowboys, drop me a note tonight at djvandc@yahoo.comxx (drop the xxs). You will need: 1. Your FOID card. 2. A belt (I have holsters) 3. $12 registration fee. 4. 100 rounds of 22 LR ammo (You can buy it at the range). 4. An alias (Trappy will work). 5. Keep quiet about your political affiliation (just kidding).

    Registration starts at 8:30. Safety meeting is at 9:30. We ususally shoot 4 or 5 scenarios. I have guns you can use.

    Jack

    Darnalls owes me well over $100,000. They are the initial drug dealer where I shot, in 1970, my first round of trap with a 3" goose gun, then shot my first round of skeet with it (shot a 16) and was hooked. Then they sold me an O/U, my first reloader (MEC 600 Jr)and my first case of AAs. Moved away after four years, but everyone knows the story on how much this has cost me since then!

    If you aren't a conservative I wouldn't be advertising that fact at a gun club!

    Paper Skeet, didn't check this until now but we are having a few hundred sorority girls over for lunch this morning. I'll drop you a line, thank you.
    100straight, well I'm not dead so far and I've been able to hold my own alright! (Though I'm not dumb enough to advertise that fact...)

    I shot a ATA shoot at Darnall's several years ago. I was the very first person to register for singles and caps. I ended up shooting last in singles and first in caps because some lady who couldn't speak english screwed things good. Never shot there again. My fault I guess.
