    I'm new to the area. Retired and moved here from way up north (Dallas).
    I use to shoot in weekly bulls eye matches that were held in an indoor range. We weren't too serious and had a lot of fun with it. It was as much a social gathering as it was a shooting match.
    Just wondering if any such event happens in the Corpus Christi area. I have a new .22 pistol I'd like to shoot too.

    OK - It looks like I'm going to have to put this together myself. How many of you would like to shoot, informally, in a "league?"
    I'm in Rockport so that's were I'll try to find a place to shoot one evening a week, or perhaps one morning a week - for us retirees.
    Anyone interested in this?

    Not in Corpus, but up in Dallas. Where were you shooting in Dallas?

    I shot in the Fun Gun League at an indoor range in Plano. After a while we moved to the Dallas Gun Club, but the league died when the Dallas Club had legal problems.
    I don't know if there is any thing like this in the DFW area any more.
    I moved to Arizona a few years ago and shot in a senior group. Now living in the Corpus area and all I can find is Run& Gun matches with AR rifles (not for me!).

    Best of luck,
    Michael

    I' beginning to see this needs to be a "postal" match. Not enough interest locally.

    Just seeing this post. Austin Rifle Club holds monthly 2700 matches on the 3rd Sunday's. Bayou Rifles on the 4th Sunday's. Terrell Pistol and Rifle Club will be on 2nd Sunday's next year. Currently on 4th. Midland hosts on the 4th Saturday I believe. Amarillo, well I'm not sure but the hold monthly matches too. There's rumor of a club in San Antonio, but I'm not sure.


    It's a great sport. It's not easy so popularity is down from decades ago, but there's a great group of shooters in this state.

    Let me know if anyone wants more info on the sport or matches.

    Dallas Pistol Club is toying with re starting monthly matches. But for now you should head to Terrell.

    Roy Plumlee rwplumlee@aol.com is the match director there.
