    Can anyone provide the names of good trap clubs in the St. Louis area. My daughter, son-in-law and 8 month old granddaughter are moving to the west St. Louis suburbs in the next month.

    Something tells me my wife and I will be making many a trip to the area so I thought I'd better do my homework and find a good place to shoot when we are there.

    The two biggest ones are St. Louis Skeet and Trap club and the Gateway Gun club. Look here:

    http://www.skeetrap.com and http://www.gatewaygunclub-stl.com

    There may be a few one trap clubs like at the MO Conservation Dept. areas as well.

    Gateway Gun Club 13547 Missouri Bottom Road, Bridgeton, MO, 64044 is probably the best in the area with 9 lighted combo fields. They are installing a bunker and 2 more trap fields. Located just east of St. Charles off of hwy 370. Cabelas store just a mile or so away.

    St. Louis Skeet and Trap-18854 Franklin Road, Pacific, MO 63069. Just south of Six Flags off west bound I44.

    Both these clubs throw monthly registered targets and have league shooting.

    Both have websites. Just type gatewaygunclub or stlouisskeetandtrap

    Gateway is the home club for Gateway Gun Club Youth Shooters. Youth team shooting SCTP and AIM. Lindenwood University also trains and practices there.

    I would drive to Sparta, especially if you have never been there. Also, You would only be about an hour and a half from Linn Creek, MO near Lake of the Ozarks where the Mo State Club is. It is a very nice facility. Jack

    I live in St. Charles, MO. It is 1 1/2 hours (90 miles) to Sparta (WSRC) and close to 2 1/2 (175 miles) hours to Linn Creek (MTA). I am 10 miutes from Gateway Gun Club and about 40 minutes to St. Louis Skeet and Trap.

    When you cross over the river to that awful State of Illinois there's The Edwardsville Gun Club, Brittany Shooting Park, Drainer's Trap Club, KVS and Highland P & R Club.

    You can't swing a dead 'possum over your head without hitting a good place to shoot trap in the Greater St. Louis/ Metro East Illinois area. Call me at 618-980-0877 for the scoop.

    Stonewall, not sure. The bunker is in the ground and they have the dirt-work completed around it. The 2 additional trap houses are also in the ground. They are also working on the indoor pistol range. I would think they will have the bunker and traps ready as soon as they can.
