Who shoots over by KC?  I will likely be moving there in late August & am looking for a club/range.  Trying to plan ahead so I can live reasonalby near a place to shoot.

I know some guys that shoot by Topeka. Not real sure how close that is. However you could the Kansas muzzleloading association website(sorry I dont know the web address) and it lists the clubs.

If you're moving to Kansas City, get in touch with the Gard brothers (bevel up & bevel down), write in Muzzle Blast every
month.   They also sponsor a chunk gun shoot toward the end of October every year............Don

Thanks guys!  Fort Osage looks like a great club & you can bet I'll be a new member if I make the move.  I'll be practicing at Children's Mercy downton.  Any good places to live out toward the range?  I'll be working at Children's Mercy.

Roger, I live about an hour SW of Phil 8 miles off I-35 on the KS side. Got a 100 yard range in the back yard behind the shop. Let me know when you get here.

You guys are great!  If I get the job, I will definitiely be in touch.  Muzzleloaders are still the best class of people in the world.
