    Chattanooga area shooting ranges

    I'm retired so any day/time is good except Tuesday/Wednesday morning. After 2:00 PM on those two days. I live eight miles from the club on 58 hwy. Just send me a PM when you want to go. Bill

    Chattanooga area shooting ranges

    Yes, if under 65, it would be fall/winter of 2020 before a spot would open up. Our bylaws only allow 800 associate members. Spots open up only if someone doesn't renew their membership. This can be anywhere from 60-90 spots a year more or less. I work at the club office every Tuesday and there is currently 100+ applications on file. Go ahead and down load the application from our website and mail it in, it costs nothing and you'll be in the loop for future membership when a spot opens up. If you've never been to the CRC and would like a tour of our facility, contact me by PM and I'll give you my contact info. You are more than welcome to bring something to shoot with you so you can try before you buy. Bill
  3. CRC has 6 CMP rimfire sporter 3P matches set this year and a .22 practical shooting match every month of the year. Non members are welcome. Bill

    There is no wait for seniors, 65 or older at CRC, as long as we are still having new member orientations. I believe there will be two more before yearly renewal's start in July. https://chattanoogarifleclub.org/ Bill

    Sig Sauer 2019 Catalog

    I wouldn't trade my W.German pistols for anything in that catalog but I will admit my EDC is an M11A1, 2013 vintage though. Bill
  6. I can shoot every day if I want to, I only live 8 miles from CRC. It's been a while since I've shot any of my Finn Mosins or Mausers as I'm shooting bullseye pistol every Wednesday morning at the club. I host a surplus shoot twice a year in the spring and fall and get to shoot them some but most of my time is taken up with cooking lunch and RO duty. Bill
  7. None better than here. https://forums.gunboards.com/forumdisplay.php?3-The-Collector-s-Forum-Mosin-Nagant-HQ More Mosin collectors than any site in the whole world. Bill
  8. I spent an hour or so with Mike at his shop this morning talking everything NFA related and having my Polish PPS43 SBR engraved. His laser engraver is totally awesome and moves super fast. All the letters are perfect and look like they were type-set on the upper receiver. I stopped by my local FFL/SOT on the way home and he was equally impressed with Mike's work and surprised at the low cost. I gave him some of Mike's business cards to hand out to potential future customers needing engraving or smith work. If anyone in east/middle TN needs any such work done, I 100% recommend Mike, it's worth the drive. Bill Cornwell
  9. I'm standing in front of the plinking range at the finest outdoor shooting facility in the whole state, the Chattanooga Rifle Club. 123 acres of shooting bliss. We also have a second facility with a 500 yard range and three pistol lanes in Meigs county north of the Hiwassee River. I can hit a 12" steel dinger at 100 yards and milk jugs full of water at 60 yards. I've never shot at paper targets though. Bill
  10. Just an old fat guy who loves his K98k. Bill

    New range opening soon.

    Wow, CRC in Ooltewah is definetly a bargain these days. Only bummer is the wait is two years unless you're a senior. Bill
  14. We have already talked and he will be taking care of me in the new year. Thanks guys. Bill
