  • Is there a Firing Range in Talkeetna?

    I heard someone speak of a firing range in Talkeetna the other night, and I asked if he was talkin bout USSA, and he said NO.

    I asked if there was a firing range in Talkeetna, and he said, Yes a good one.

    Out of curiosity, I did an Internet Search and didn't find such.

    I will probably question him farther, next time I see him, but I thought I'd enquire here first.

    Thanks

      IF, you're talkin bout Grouse Ridge, isn't that a Shootgun Range?

        Well.......I can't figure why you would need covered benches and a 200 yard range for a shotgun.

          On my internet search I found only a Shootgun range mentioned. I've heard that it was a shotgun range.

          I don't know WHAT they have at Grouse Ridge, that's why I'm asking.

            This Grouse Ridge? Clearly says it's a shotgun club. Has a restaurant. Is located on Fishhook Road. I hear you can see Russia from there...:rolleyes:

            This is the 1000 yard range near Talkeetna.

              Smitty, there's a thread about this range just a little ways down the first page of the shooting forum:

              http://forums.outdoorsdirectory.com/...ming-a-reality

              To be clear, the Upper Susitna Shooters Association isn't in Talkeetna proper, but rather just south of the Talkeetna cutoff on the Parks. Member AKDoug appears be very involved with the Association and the range. I'd send him a note if you want to know more.

                Thanks for the info.

                I'm familiar with USSA, and am a member there. I think that AKDoug is the president or something.

                Like the old fart that I am, I forgot about this, and I failed to ask the guy when I seen him again last night.

                He said, If I heard correctly, that he wasn't talking about USSA. I was wondering if there was a RIFLE RANGE at Grouse Ridge, along with the Shootgun. Maybe, even one that is not open to the public.

                OR, if possibly there was a Rifle Range in Talkeetna that I didn't know about.

                Thanks
