Division of Illinois changed date and added date
« on: January 24, 2019, 08:26:00 pm »
The Division of Illinois and Dept of Missouri combined muster will be held at Dry Gulch Range near Winnebago, IL on 29 Sept.  Will shoot precision pistol and rifle on paper, The 2x4 (maybe 2), and 4 steel stages.  Ammo count to come after I get the stages completed.

I have changed the original date for the Div Illinois muster from 29 September 2019 to  14 September 2019  Have also added an additional muster to be held on 11 May 2019.  Both musters will be held at the Dry Gulch Ranch just outside of Winnebago, Il.  Will shoot 4 stages on steel and one stage precision pistol and rifle for both matches.  Ammo count roughly: 35 pistol, 45 rifle.  Misses, well you be the judge....

Again 1st Illinois muster: 11 May 2019; 2cnd Illinois muster 14 September 2019.

What kind of yardage will your range be and how hard is it to bring black powder cartridges and or pistols into your state?

Whiskey Double,
Follow these steps when you are coming into Illinois.  All firearms must be cased and ammo stored/transported in separate cases/containers.  In a car put everything in your trunk; truck or suv, in the back or cased behind the front seat.  The key to remember is can your firearm be readily accessed and loaded while you are driving.
Let me answer your other question on my main computer.  I don't have any of that info on my laptop (this poj).

Concerning the Illinois' musters.  They, for now, are held at  Dry Gulch Ranch outside of  Winnebago, Il.  It is a cowboy range and the longest bay is maybe 30 yards.  The other 4 bays are in and around 12 - 15 yards.  45/70s have done ok and will knock a target down every now and then.  Where I held them a couple of years past we could go out to 100 and 200 yards.

I have the address and gps coordinates for Dry Gulch Ranch. Address is: 10573 Telegraph Rd, Winnebago, Il.  Gps coordinates are: latitude  42. 335492; longitude  -89.24613.
And, coming in on US 20 and the Winnebago Rd US 20 stoplight turn left (north) onto Winnebago Rd approx 3 miles to Telegraph Rd stop sign. Turn right onto Telegraph Rd. 10573 is the second farmstead on the left.
Give me a holler if you need any other info.

Oh yes and gun carts are allowed as (someone forgot) the rifle racks have not been constructed.  Electricity gets in the way. Constantly....  really.

Will we be using the Gatling gun for the September shoot? If so I will need to bring extra 45 colt ammo.

Well, I guess we can if you are giving permission!!  I'll get it on the truck if so and will be at Dry Gulch plenty early.  WTH, consider it stage 1!!  It all cleaned up and ready to go..

Round count: 60 rifle and 30-40 pistol should work...  Emphasis on should, remember 2x4!!!
