Does anyone know where the closest shooting range (open to the public) to O'Fallon, MO is? I asked a question similar to this wrt shooting ranges at the Busch reserve with no response.

Thanks guys. Is the Busch range off of 94?

JimH--I've been to Jay Henges before it is a nice range. Its kind of on the way home from work for me so i'm sure I'll be heading back there. I'll be sure to drop you a line.

I think there is a range called benchrest (not sure about the name) gun club near Wright City. Anyone know of this place?

My uncle goes there and has told me that they have long-range lanes there also.

I've never shot the 600 yard target, which is the longest, you really need two people to shoot that target along with radios or cell phones to communicate.

I've even seen a guy bring his reloading bench out there with him so that he could test out his loads and find the right combination.

Yes it is. You go down 94, and right before you get to Francis Howell H.S. you'll take a right on J (I think). You'll see it though, not really a way to miss it. If you pass Howell then you've gone too far.
Just follow that other hwy and go past all the buildings and the main enterance for Busch Wildlife... The range is around 3 miles down the road and will be on the left. You'll see a sign for it. Just follow the gravel road to the range and shoot away! :sniper:

Wow looks like a nice range with a LOT of competitive shoots. Might have to think about joining someday.

We should meet up and go out to Busch! From the main gate at Busch continue on THREE miles, see sign for range, and the range will be on the left side. They have a broadhead range there, patterning range, skeet, trap, tree climber poles for your climbers to shimmy up. The rifle range is 100 yards, starts at 7 yards and has I believe a8 stations. No double taps however, and no holster work either. Pretty much good for sighting in your firearm and just overall everyday practice. Not very practical for CCW but better than sitting at home typing on your lap top. Ooooops, did I say that! Benchrest is a looker though, Venatic, let's go! u2u me for a time! Oh, can you do actual Close Quarter work there? I know it is on the honor system just did not know how busy it gets!
