Going to be living out of an RV in the Meridian area for a week starting today. Wondering if anybody can point me to a shooting range in the area? Preferably something with at least 100 yards... Thanks!

Hey Savage,

What are the ranges like at PBRPC? Are we talking covered benches or just a field with some burms set up? Is it really closed on Saturday like your post says??

I talked with Mr. Ira on the phone about a year ago. He told me that it was a private club and a referral was usually required to join. I was just probing at the time so I thanked him and said goodbye.

I live in the city. Recently I lost access to the area my kids and I use to shoot. Since then I have been driving out to Camp Shelby, but that is usually a hassle since we can't always set up in the same spot, finding a good spot can be difficult, and we get run off by troops doing manuvers at times.

If the same invitation is extended to me, I will like to take you up on that some time soon. I need a safe, stable place to bring my little markswomen.

25 yard to 100 yard covered around 75 yards across. 300 yard open bench and 400 yard covered.
I can bring guests. need to load some ammo, need to get some.
Camp shelby is a good place, but as you found out can be a hassle.

Pistols, .22lr, and .223 mostly. We go through a ton of .22lr.

I'm not into competition, but it would be fun to hang out and watch.

I'll PM you in advance when it looks like I'm going to have some free time on the weekend.

Is it closed on Saturday or was that a typo?

Hey guys, thanks for the info. Savageshooter, I shoot 22LR (pistol and rifle), .40 S&W, .45-70 and 6.8 SPC. Maybe an occasional 38/357 revolver, but not very often.

Would love to check out PBRPC with you sometime. I'm still working up loads for the 6.8 and the .40. A good solid bench would really help me get these loads dialed in. When we go you're welcome to shoot any of my stuff.

Anyway, I'll PM when I get back in town and can get free to do some shooting. I live very close to PBRPC -- probably within 5 miles. I'm just a few hundred yards from the corner where Buffalo Hill Road intersects Paulding Road.

Thanks again. I'll be in touch.
