Over the past two weeks I have taken both my cousin and a friend to Parma Woods for the first time. My cousin shot my Rifle, first time shooting a gun, and my friend fired her new Browning Buckmark Camper Pistol. They both greatly enjoyed their time and Andrea has already been back.
Parma Woods is a rifle/shotgun/pistol range located by Parkville, Missouri, just north of Cabelas. The rifle range sets targets at 25, 50, 75, and 100 yards. Pistol Range is 7, 15, 25, 50 yards. The best thing about the range is it is open to the public year round and it costs only $3 an hour. The only concern you may have is if shooting a firearm in a milatary caliber, ie. a .223 or .308 your ammunition must be inspected and approved.
Both Andrea and Brandt shot well for the first time using the guns and I did fair shooting approximately 2 MOA at 100 yards. My goal in this next year is to get it down to 1/2 MOA. Here are the pictures:
