    Thanks for the reminder. I just may take my youngest son and head north to the show this year. It’s only about a five hour drive from my location and I have never been to a dedicated airgun show. What is the estimated public turnout for this event?

    We expect to have about 100 tables and 300-400 visitors. This is a great show in a beautiful venue. Lots of friendly folks. Hope to see you there.   Dennis

    Dennis, Chris told me you were taking over.  What is Wes’ role in this now?

    Folks: I was thrilled to hear Dennis and Baker Airguns are involved in running the show.  Baker is first class and great ambassadors for our sport.  

    The day before the Airgun Show the Southern Michigan Gun Club’s Pneumatics (The Pneumatics are the air gunners at SMGC) host Airgunpalooza. A link to information about the show, things to do in the area for the non-air gunner and Airgunpalzzoa is here  http://pneuzoo.weebly.com/kalamazoo-air-gun-show.html I’ll get details posted when they are settled, but there will a lot of great shooting (field target, bench rest, and plinking), fellowship, food (our catered events are a culinary delight and cost just a few bones), and fun at SMGC the day before the airgun show.  

    Anyone interested can subscribe to our newsletter here: http://weebly.us8.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=b581890d487b8eb06c9cbdc66&id=83f8a1faa4 Our newsletter is simply event notifications.  A calendar of events is on our website, and the newsletter is sent out about a week in advance of the event with details. 
    I’m biased, but Kalamazoo is a great place to live and visit especially for air gunners.  First off we have an amazing club and range, check out our website http://pneuzoo.weebly.com/ .  The area has a ton of keen air gunners and our events are well attended. Also, geography and community are terrific.

    Even though I live in Indianapolis metro area, I joined the Southern Michigan Gun Club’s Pneumatics (SMGC). I have a sister in Kalamazoo, but I don’t get up there as often as I would like, but folks even you are anywhere near this area, please make the drive and try it out! It’s A FIRST CLASS facility that will have your jaws dropping at the accommodations there and the wonderful members and folks that run it. Self-run really by it’s own volunteers so it’s unbelievably cheap $$ to join. Bring your powderburners and bows for other parts of the club to enjoy as well.

    The airgun show is fabulous, too! Look to Dennis for great deals and refurbishing. He did amazing work on an old beat up Sheridan Blue Streak for a $ong. I was shocked at how well it turned out and getting that back in the mail in a very timely way.

    Thanks for the name check Rock :).

    The Pneumatics are on a mission to promote this sport and make our shoots worth the drive.  I’m proud to be part of something that folks are willing to drive so far to participate in. Luckily, I’m blessed to be just a few miles away.  I’m completely spoiled.

    I make most shoots unless my kids or family stuff (we’re off grid a bit during summers) preeminent.  I imagine we’ve meet?

    I too would like to make this outing. Been a long time since I have gone to something like this. Unlike everything on the west side of the country, this is only an hour or so from home. In the 90s I use to enjoy some of the more local shoots. One that was close was the Tar Paper Shack. Who knows, maybe I will find a local club again. Darrell

I’m sure we most certainly did, but it’s been a couple years and I met so many there my last outing with everyone in attendance. You aren’t also known as .20cal elsewhere, are you?

    No, I’m KzooRichie for all my online handles unless it’s for work.  Most folks call me Rich in real life.  I do most of the website and emails.  

    .20cal is Chris the club director.  He does most the heavy lifting, is usually the guy rolling out the red carpet for noobs and guests, and is America’s greatest airgun shoot chef.

    Ah, yes, indeed… Chris does have some mean culinary skills!  I do remember your handle and I am sure we’ve met. Just hard for me to put a face to that. The vicissitudes of an aging mind. 🙂
