I am curious what a hoot and shoot is. My thoughts are it is a get together with a bunch of folks from this forum maybe??

I did see where Evan may not be able to make it and there may not be one.

May I ask what this is about?

That is the "Hoot" portion as I understand it.

The "Shoot" portion is the opportunity to train with some of the squared away people on this forum.

there will most likely never be another one. I lost the shop and range and have been without a pay check for a year.

Would you consider attending and lending the name if another couple of forum members fronted the expenses and did the organizing? If we did better than break even, we could use that to get things rolling the following year. Training that is high quality and fun is a great thing.

Paging Dr. Courtney, and other potentially interested members!

Dr. Courtney is in Michigan, which is likely accessible to more forum participants. I belong to the Lake Charles Gun Club, which has a facility that would be suitable During the winter and early spring.

Any other ideas on location?

Matthew Courtney,

What expenses would you have, besides what the instructors would charge?

in the past, we paid the instructors travel and then deivided the profits equally among the instructors-last year we had John Farnam, Ed Lovette and myself.

The rental of a club grounds would be the first thing I see for expence. I am interested and may have a location with in 25 miles of where the last one was held. If this plan keeps going I can find out what rent would be.

As Evan will tell you, hosting events like this are ALOT more work than many realize. Make sure you have good support that will actually help when the time comes and not just offer and then disappear...

Been there, done that...

if you do it for love it will all work out, if money is the motivation you'll start considering suicide.

Hillsdale is building a 77 acre shooting sports facility. According to what I was told they only have trap ranges up and running now, but have plans to install outdoor rifle and pistol ranges. Don't know if they would be ready by this summer or not.

Any chance of using their facility and staying in the dorm rooms?

Fish,
Can't have handguns in a College Dorm in MI. It is one of the Criminal empowerment zones written into the CCW law. Most Colleges do not allow guns on Campus grounds period. You would be better off staying in a Hotel.

If you are looking for a place in Michigan, the Capital City Gun Club outside of Lansing is a VERY nice facility and are easy to work with. They are big into IDPA so they have a range design that is conducive to tactical applications including rifle. I have taught a few classes there and they have always treated me very well...
