From what I'm reading many events will be open to non-members, just that members get discounts, so for those of us that only want to compete there from time to time, it might be cheaper to not join and simply pay the premium price for the big events.

I'd love to get into practical shooting, such as 3-gun, and maybe even get into F class some day

I like this part:

"Note: We will work with you to qualify for use on the distance range if you are interested. This is a highly specialized range and requires the proper club certifications, equipment and individual ability for safe use)"

They do need a proof-reader for the site, but I'm really liking the idea. Now if I could get my wonderful girlfriend on board...

Peacemaker did finally open in september. All the rain has definitely slowed the progress on getting all the ranges complete and running, but things are shaping up.

My wife and I have been out there a few times. The general sight in range is open. The pistol range is 25yds and the rifle range is 100yds. I believe the plan is to extend the rifle range out to 300yds in the spring.

The 1000yd range is open if you're qualified to shoot on it. No kentucky windage or guessing at hold overs here, you have to know what you're doing.

A couple of the tactical ranges are up and running. My wife and I were out there last sunday shooting steel. They're working to get everything set up for the FNH 3 gun match next month.

They are running training classes. My wife took the basic handgun/ccw class last saturday, and really enjoyed it. This is a live fire class and at $45 for members is a bargain IMO. I'm scheduled for an Action Pistol class next week.

The staff has been helpful and friendly, and even though they are going through some growing pains, we're quite pleased with the facility.

Anyone actually been there yet?

Hmmm. That's a 2-hr drive for me but the hanging steel at 600dsy & beyond makes me want to join.

Still quite a bit of construction going on. Obviously it's a large facility. I haven't even been over to the skeet/trap ranges yet. The general sight in range currently has a 25yd pistol bay and the 100 yd range with about 10 shooting stations. I believe the plan is expand this to 300yds. The skeet and trap ranges are up and running but the sporting clays range is planned for spring.

2 of the tactical ranges are up and running complete with steel and the bianci cup movers. I believe the plan is for 14 or 16 of these ranges. With the exception of matches these ranges are only available to members.

The 1000yd benches are in but I dont think they have the electronics set up yet for the targets so at this point they are shooting steel. They had a match a couple weeks back. As I mentioned previously you must qualify to shoot at that distance. I dont shoot long range but I believe you must shoot a sub moa group at 100yds and have your rifle and optics approved.

You have to drive between the various ranges. When you get there you stop by the office to check in and let them know where you're going.

Thus far the folks there have been great. Weather pushed the construction schedule back some so I dont think they are as far along as they hoped to be.
