Alright all. I kinda got derailed with having to travel for work.

I am heading up to Cherokee Gun Club tomorrow for a silhouette shoot. Anybody who wants to join me is more than welcome. We shoot smallbore (.22LR) and Field Pistol (straight walled cartridges 1.29" or less, which includes the .44 mag and down). It is a lot of fun and for newbies the first series is free. After that it is $5 a series. Lunch is provided (donations are appreciated). In one series you will shoot 45 times. 5 sighters, 10 rounds at 25 yards, 10 rounds at 50 yards, 10 rounds at 75 yards, and 10 rounds at 100 yards. FP is shot standing and SB is shot all sorts of ways. The only rule for freestyle shooting is no artificial rests.
It is a great way to practice those off-hand shots that sometimes present themselves.
So, for less than $20 you can shoot all day (both guns and bull) and have a great time with some great people.
Also, it is not a competition. The only person that you compete against is yourself. And don't worry about it if you don't have a gun that is perfectly "legal" for IHMSA. We will let you shoot whatever you have as long as it doesn't damage the targets.
I will be bringing a few extra boxes of .22 ammo and I will let anyone who wants to shoot SB with my Contender.

Also, I am planning a day at Creekside sometime before the season starts. I will post more when I have it firmed up.

There is a range that I frequent. Its a WMA range, its free, and easy to get to. North-west of LaGrange about 8 miles.
An hour and a half drive from Dallas at the most. An hour and a half from Columbus. Almost two hours from Macon.

I'm pretty sure the Wilson Shoals WMA range is only 75 yards.

Bibb sheriffs department range is open mon - fri 7-5 and has a 250 yds range thats were i check my guns also griswoldville has a 500 yds range its about 8-9 miles from macon it is a private club but im sure someone would let yall shoot marion rd in macon also has a 200yd range . Eagle gun range is indoor and only 25 yds not much of a challenge . Wma range in hawkinsville is 50-100yd kinda short for long range pistol shootin . Maybe this will help with your ideas of a shoot and hopefully i can attend if its in middle georgia
