We shoot highpower the 2nd Sunday of the month at Mid Carolina. Also PSMA has matches at Ft Gordon. We also have the occasional Garand/M1 carbine match at Mid Carolina.

Did we miss something in your question, about which kind of shooting you were interested in?
Could you narrow it down a bit?
Pistol, rifle, shotgun, precision, slow, fast, static, action, long range, something else?

Im near North Myrtle Beach. Shotgun sports dominate. Handguns second and rifle a very distant third.

Ive been bitten by the 3 Gun bug and they are few and far between. I travel to Wilmington and Raleigh NC to shoot. I shot a USPSA 3 gun match at Ant Hill Sunday.

Here's a link to the cowboy action club that shoots in Aynor: http://www.hurricane-riders.com/

Cowboy action is a three gun match; go check it out, it's lots of fun.

I was mainly looking to see how many ns/sc shooters that are active here on the site. Im still getting myfeet wet, Im doing a combat shoot tomarrow night. I figue Ill do these local shoots for awhile to get up to speed before I hit a IDPA or like event.

I plan going to a event in the up state sc or to NC to just watch, see how the event run, what to except at my first event I do.

Deff if anyone on here is going tomarrow night at ATP in north charleston say hello, great way to put a face to the user name.

You can shoot for free if you just sign-up at MCRD Parris Island, SC.

here is the link to the Palmetto Gun Club...Charleston, SC


I have not shot there, but know many who have. I understand that it is a 1st class operation.

and here is their club calendar....


with a match this Saturday....8/4.

Hey man. I didn't make it to the last one but I sometimes go to the Combat Shoots over at ATP.

If you enjoy that format in the slightest, you might want to try out Palmetto Gun Club's USPSA match this Saturday. Much more elaborate and fun than the "outlaw" match at ATP :).

There's also another USPSA match over in Georgetown (Coastal Shooters Association) this Sunday as well. It typically starts at 9:00 and is held at the Georgetown County Sheriff's Department range.

Hope to see you around!

Really wish we had a few more ranges/clubs around though. There's an old campground (the "Girl Scout Plantation") for sale out in the Coordesville area in Berkeley County that I'd LOVE to turn into a range if I had sufficient funds.
