Groton Sportsmen's Club Fall Field Day
« on: June 04, 2021, 03:32:00 PM »
Nov. 21, 2021, Open to the public. with a variety of shooting and non-shooting events.
You might want to call for details, as I understand they may be a bit more restrictive on non-members coming w/o any sponsorship. They are taking precautions regarding allowing anyone with a gun onto their facility (at least, two years ago they had an attendant at their gate to screen entrants).

This will give you a chance to shoot the gong at 300 yards, as well as, sample all the other venues at their club: Pistol pins, plates. Running deer and gong (c-f rifle). Trap, .22 rifle, archery, etc.
In the past, it's been a token fee for each station; no general admission charge. Just look around or shoot whatever stations you choose for the token fee. This includes the firearm and ammo (you can shoot your own stuff, of course).
Are there any shooters on this forum?

FWIW, GSC has a 500 yard rifle range, but it is located offsite (North Stonington) and isn't included in this field day event.
The Field Day will get you in to see the main facility and meet members, so you can possibly get your foot in the door.
Enjoy!

The whole point is to make the place available to non-members, the public at large, to show what it's all about. You needn't even bring a firearm, as they have "house" guns at each venue to use with ammo. You can also use your gear, but they still charge a token fee for each event.
If you've never shot skeet or trap (not sure if they run any skeet), this is the chance to do it w/o need of your own gear.
I don't usually have much chance to shoot at 300 yards, so the gong is a hoot.
