    Hi Rich:

    Sometimes it takes a personal invitation. Mark just gave you one but being new around here you probably didn't realize that. So here it is. Your personal invitation to the Shirley Pumpkin Shoot in November. Up in Franklin County we're about 40 minutes from you but I have a few friends (NES members) in your neck of the woods. Watch this thread. We'll end up putting something together and when that gets announced, you are welcome to shoot my guns.

    I live just North West of Mark in the "city" of Lee. I can call it that, I grew up in Tyringham.

    Rich, SOLVS LVPS was one of the first people I met on NES and he generously let me fire several of his guns. He's one of the people I was referring to in "Your area." In fact, Ray was the first person to effectively demonstrate Bump Firing on an AK to me. [grin]

    For those folks around the greater Springfield area, where do you usually shoot? On those rare occasions when I can find some spare time, I frequent the Agawam Revolver Club. I'm also a member in Westfield, but very rarely manage to get over there.

    We are fortunate enough to be able to shoot on a friend of ours property. He has a gravel bank. He lives right down the road from us.
    We have a different times been members of Westfield Sportsmans Club.

    Rich we live out in Westhampton, and you are more than welcome to shoot what I have. We will be going to the Shirley Pumpkin shoot and if you come out to that everyone is more than willing to let you try out what they have.

    JRyan Took me there once, as did another member. It's a nice place and I've been threatening to join for a while. Perhaps I'll just join (heck if you can't have too many guns than you can't have too many clubs) and then we can host a group shoot there since it's within about 30 minutes of everyone who has posted so far.

    Another ARC member here - kind of a short rifle range but very reasonably priced and I have never seen it crowded. Right on the Agawam / Southwick line on Route 57; worth checking out.

    We have one in Otis, too. But it only blinks ... yellow if traveling north-south, red for east-west.

    Well, the Pike only goes through a little piece of Otis (and you have to drive to Lee, Westfield or Stockbridge to actually get on it), and I think we have over 40 miles of paved road now, with most of that being Routes 8 and 23. Enough to keep two guys busy in a snowstorm.

    I'm in central MA but am willing to travel to a shoot. I already know a few of the western folks, and anyone is welcome to shoot what I have.

    Generous offers all!

    Thank you Mark, Raoul, Lupus, Smitty, and Mrs. Wild for your generous offers! I'll check the schedule for the Members Only shoot (see, I knew that there was a very good reason to go green!) in November, and hopefully join you all there!
