    Hi!

    I'll be moving to South Bend, IN, in May. Can anyone tell me what the closest ranges would be? (not just trap, but skeet, 5-stand, sporting clays, international trap?)?

    THANKS!

    This will get you started. Nose around and you'll find others not listed on the map.

    The closest place that shoots trap practice, games and registered targets is Howard Township Gun club in Niles, MI. They get many shooters from South Bend, Elkhart and Goshen.

    The Back 40 is a great place to shoot sporting clays. I don't know about registered skeet, but Chain of Lakes in South Bend, and Berrien County Sportsmans Club in Berrien Springs have many good skeet shooters. If trap is your leaning, there are many trap ranges with an hour to hour and half away. I believe the first registered shoot at Fulton County is March 22!!!

    My information is about 25 years old, but there also used to be a trap club at Dowagiac Michigan.

    Back in the mid 80s, Howard Township, Berrien Sportsmans, Chain O'Lakes, and Elkhart all used to have ATA shoots. Now it seems like Howard Township is the only one that still does.

    I was a member and Board member of BCSC way back then. At that time we had trap, skeet, both a target and field archery ranges, 200 yard rifle range, and indoor pistol range. Does anybody know how they are today?

    Hey there is also the St. Joseph County Conservation and Sportsman Club near Sturgis Michigan. We have been running registered ATA shoots again and we have one coming up March 15, with one on April 19. Both events will have 100 singles, 100 handicap, and 50-pair doubles. Youth SCTP shooters are also very welcome as we have food and trophies.

    Our club also has a skeet range, plus rifle, handgun, archery, defensive pistol ranges. You can call me at 269-483-6803 for more info as I an a club officer as well as the trap co-ordinator. Club is located at 23640 Featherstone Rd, Sturgis, MI.

    Are there any clubs close to Angola, Indiana? Sturgis Mich is 45 min. St Joe, Ind is 45 min. and Willimas County (Montpelier)Ohio is 45 min. Are there any closer than that?

    Mimji - check out the Indiana Trapshooters website and click on the 'Gun Club Map' link. It will show all Indiana clubs.

    If Sporting is your game, one of the best places in the country will be very close.

    Grand Kankakee is just right down the road in Hanna, IN. A fair shooter by the name of John Kruger holds a couple of shoots there every year.
