Lots of IDPA and USPSA clubs in your area. Greater Pitt gun club and Clairton gun club come to mind.

Check out www.idpa.com amd www.uspsa.com for even more.

NP, I Direct an IDPA shoot 60 miles north of 'da burgh in New Castle and shoot regularly locally, so if you need more specific info I can probably provide it.

I think im goin to the IDPA new shooter class at greater pitt this weekend or the one in north huntington the following weekend. What day do you have your shoots up in new castle. That is much closer to me than the other clubs. Do you guys have a website?

Absolutely. We shoot April-October, usually on the third Saturday of the month.

Lycanthrope my commute takes me down 422 everyday (I work in Pittsburgh and liven in West Middlesex) is that clubs rifle range only members only and you are no longer taking members?

Also do you know of any other clubs around?

Yes, the range is members only (or as a guest) and we may have some slots left. The club maxes out at 350 members, but you can be put on the list for next January at the worst and you'll get in.

Another nice club is the Mahoningtown Sportsmans club just south of New Castle.
