Holster Draw Ranges

Have a weekend or two off coming up and want to practice drawing and shooting from the holster. Been working on this a lot with dry fire, but have yet to perform it with live fire. Any ranges in the KC and/or Lake of the Ozark (or in-between) that allow this?

I could leave rather early and be at the range at or near sunrise or something too if it helps avoid unsafe individuals.

Picked up a shot timer to try and make the most of my training too.

JoCo training - Sunday 2-June - Shoot Faster

From SRT Specialist Research & Training - no affiliation, just a satisfied customer. Been seeing requests for training come across the group, wanted to share.

Contact Bill Regina at srt@srt-group.com

KC Shooters

Speed to Stay Alive - Shoot Faster

June 2nd / 1:00 to 4:00

  • The Bullet Hole, 6201 Robinson St, Overland Park, KS 66202

This course will cover one thing- going faster with your handgun.

First hits win a lot of the time. No one ever said they wanted to be a slower shooter. Be fast and be accurate.

We will cover -

  • Getting the gun out of the holster faster and getting on target
  • Grip, sights, trigger - the keys to shooting
  • How much do you really need to see and where should your focus be
  • Recoil and adding multiple shots- accept its there and work with it
  • Moving - if you can't shoot fast get out of the way

Gear needed: handgun, holster, 150 rds., usual range gear (eyes, ears, etc)

Course Fee: $40

Recommended handgun training courses

Hello, I am a relatively new gun owner with some shooting experience. I would like to take further steps to educate myself and improve my skills for home defense and CCW. I have gone shooting with some friends and alone at the range myself a few times, but I feel that without formal instruction I'll start to develop bad habits. I live in the Independence area, so I would prefer a shop on the Missouri side so I don't have to drive so far.

I took an intro class at the FJ in Lee's Summit a couple of months ago and it taught me very little, with an unhelpful instructor. Going into that class, I seemed to have more experience than the rest of the group, and the instructor definitely noticed this and barely gave me any 1-on-1 time compared to the other learners. So I would like to stay away from that location, unless my experience there was a fluke.

Any recommendations are appreciated.

Gun shop on the KS side that releases guns after the 3 days waiting period

I've been delayed for a .22 lever action for weeks now at bass pro. This is not my first firearm I've purchased and I've never had more than a 3 day delay. Bass pro won't give me the gun until the BG check comes back, but from my understanding the law says gun dealers can release the firearm on a delay after 3 days. Bass pro wont due to their own corporate policy.....

Im ready to go to a smaller shop that will release it even if it means paying more for the rifle, I am on the KS side- any recommendations for gun shop to visit?

Gun range question

Is there an outdoor gun range near KC that allows you to rapid fire? I’ve always gone to MDC ranges and they don’t allow rapid fire, which really isn’t a big deal, but sometimes I want to pull the trigger more than once every 5 seconds.

BOGO suppressor

AB suppressors is offering a free .22lr can with the purchase and application of any of their amazing suppressors. Purchase must be made before 12/31/23, and Form 4 submitted before 1/31/24 to get the free suppressor. These are some of my favorite suppressors around, especially for bolt guns, made locally in KS. Let me know if I can help you get the process started.

Golden Valley MODOC range, Clinton MO Conditions

What are the current conditions of the Golden Valley unmanned range? It was fair to poor last time I was out - 2 sets benches and roof, one pistol box (?), zero target attachments (brought our own fortunately). That was some years back. Anyone been recently?

Goals:
Pattern shotgun, sight in for slugs at 50 yards.
Sight in AR. 25 yards is fine; I'll run it out to Ottawa and get it tuned for 300 plus at one of their matches.
Draw and fire drills with the pistol. (USPSA practice, OWB holster.)

Thanks in advance!

Gun Clubs

Anyone a member of Tri-County Rod and Gun Club? Looks like they require a sponsor to join. The website says to come to an open event but there aren’t any listed for the foreseeable future. Open to any private club/range really, just looking for a place to shoot that’s not run by fudds. I’m located in south KC but I’m willing to drive upwards of an hour for a good place.

Gun show across the state line?

I’m wanting to go to the gun show at the Expo Center in KCMO this weekend. The only thing is I live on the Kansas side and have only bought firearms in KS before. Will I be able to buy anything at the show since it’s in Missouri?

I tried a quick google but didn’t find much. Hopefully this isn’t a question you see all the time(sorry if it is)

Private Sales in KC Area

Hey there!

Aside from Armslist, what avenues do you guys like for private sales locally? I know Armslist is popular but I'm just wondering if there's a free alternative as I'm not sure how active Armslist is anymore.

This is my first Reddit post I hope I didn't F it up.

Range USA coming to northland

Sounds like Range USA is coming to the northland by the Costco off Platte Purchase.

I can’t wait! Looking at their website looks like a nice range setup. Be nice to not have to drive so far to get a decent range.

Anyone know any details? When they might open? Anyone ever visit a Range USA? Looks like they have several locations across the country so I am hoping this is a good thing for the community.

The Bullet Hole

Is the Bullet Hole going out of business? They haven’t had an FFL for over 3 weeks, and the store was closed due to “staffing”. Heard the GM also walked away. Anyone got any info on this?

Edit: rumor has it they allowed straw purchases. Been in 3 times since I first posted, and there are zero guns in store to be sold. Wonder when the owner will sell the buildings.

Considering Topeka Gun Show this weekend

I lost my job several months ago, and in an effort to stay above water, I am looking into selling all my guns and ammo. I used to utilize Midwest Gun Trader, but with that gone, I am unsure how else to do it. I am currently looking into getting a table at the Topeka Gun Show next weekend 6/10/2023, any thoughts or suggestions? I have a bunch of Sig Sauers, Taurus, Remington and Ruger primarily, and other various guns, all well equipped, many unfired, and thousands of rounds of ammunition. Any help is appreciated.
