Middle Tennessee area

Anyone out there reading this from the middle Tennessee area? I am approx. 50 miles west of Nashville. There is a fairly new range out on Hwy. 48. It is state of the art. Maybe we can have a shoot there sometime. I think they still charge $5 per day. Tom

You may see me there in the future, thought it's a bit of a drive from Knoxville.

My wife is trying to get a transfer to a new Costco opening in Knoxville sometime this summer.

Do you know of anything on the Knoxville side of the state?

I'm in West Nashville and may be up for it, depending on the day and time.

The Oak Ridge range is whom I would suggest for you. Sorry, I can't recall their web site or name but they host a LOT of matches so they shouldn't be hard to google up.

Hope this helps!

SE Tennessee ... !

Probably the most active Club overall in SouthEast Tennessee for competition shooters is the Chattanooga Rifle Club, with ORSA a close second.. Further west is the group operating out of the Arnold Development Centre.

Lots of online references to many, many more with a little Yahoo/Google searching .... also plenty of private ranges such as my own in Bledsoe County

Thanks Mick!

I tend to stay away from competition, got way too serious about ten years back with rockets. Really didn't like what it turned into.

But you may see me out there just shooting paper, my wife should have an interview this week.

I believe you'll find rimfire shooters to be a different-minded bunch, IMO. While we all love to compete, I believe we compete more within & against ourselves than against fellow shooters.

Of course, we also like to lie about our abilities after the matches as well.

You might be seeing me after I get settled, my wife is the new Marketing Manager for the Costco opening in November. Will probably take a month or two to get settled, then should be out looking for places to shoot.

Reviving an old thread.

My wife retired from Costco, we've moved from Knoxville to near Benton. You may be seeing me in the near future, after the house is free of boxes...
