Lets see who we have here from CT.
Lets see who we have here from CT.
Born and raised in CT, but moved away almost 2 years ago. I'll be back there the first week of August. I'm guessing you live in Waterbury, eh? :D
I have to say i've only driven through your town 3 or 4 times on my way to a friends house in NY. Never stopped though.
Im sitting over here on the Rhode Island border.
Got any place to go shooting? The only local places near my Dads house are all private clubs, and he's not a member. He's in Norwich, CT.Quote:

Sometimes we head up to the Smith And Wesson Academy. A lot cheaper to shoot there but now with the price of gas. Brother belongs to two private clubs, one indoor club in Manchester and one outdoor club in East Windsor. Get to shoot the "Bush-Wacker" in East Windsor!
Only us three from "The State Of Confusion"?
Hey guys, Im new here, and Im from CT. Trumbull to be exact. :-)

Thats funny cause I have an uncle who lives in Waterbury.:mrgreen:
Also located in Trumbull! Born and rasied in Trumbull, moved to New Milford for about 2 years but now I am back!
hey guys, I'm both new to this forum as well as CT, but my wife and I moved here a few months ago from Ohio and I am stationed in groton (Navy:smt1099 ). Anywho, that's were I stand and its great to find such a great forum like this. I have been around guns my whole life and have taught rifle and shotgun at Boy scout camps, shot a lot and am generally just a gun nut. I am anxiously awaiting my 21st birthday :smt026 come next April so that I may OWN a handgun finally. I guess my Mossberg will have to do for now. I'm seriously looking at a Walther PPK/S or a Makarov, but my true dream gun is the Wilson Combat CQB:drooling: . too bad it's way out of my price range. any places around here that I can shoot trap or skeet?
Hey, welcome to the site!
Welcome, nukehayes - to the state and the forum.
And thank you for your service !
I'm not familar with places to shoot out the east end of the state, so I can't help you there. Hope you enjoy your stay in our state.
Cool another CT'er. Welcome man.:-)
This is kinda random, but I don't know a better place to put this. I wanna go camping this weekend before it gets too cold. Any good spots for that around here?
Nukehayes, Try Pachaug State Forest up in Voluntown.
I wish I saw this sooner. Heres some info anyway, incase you're still interested...
im new but im also a fellow nutmegger
I'm in Old Saybrook, and decided to log in. I will put my two cents in on some of the past posts: I don't know of any public ranges in the area. The only ones I know of are Blue Trail in Wallingford, and I saw something in the paper about DEP opening a range in Glastonbury last weekend. Camping - There are a couple good places around. The best place to check is woodalls.com or something like that.
the guys at newington gun exchange are great!
i usually go to wolfs in bistol but every now and again i swing by blue trails or a spot in manchester that I can't remember the name of
eastern ct here
Plainville, newbie here
I moved back to my hometown of Bethel about a year and a half ago, after living in SF for 4 years and NYC for 13 years.
Free from the restrictive gun laws of CA and NY, I've been getting into shooting. Got my CCW and a S&W M36, more on the way. Joined the local indoor range in Ridgefield. Trying to get my wife and friends hooked on the bug, too.
wallingford / north haven here. occasionally I stay up in new britian. looking for someplace to shoot, blue trail range is currently shut down by the DEP. they have quite a mess on their hands it looks like. where else can i shoot ?
also, anyone know the particulars of shooting on private property??
