My wife is moving to Des Moines to be closer to family and I've decided to follow her :) I've been shooting NRA smallbore rifle and pistol for years and am intrigued by the air pistols I see here. I'm looking for a place to shoot and some competition if there is any. Interested in smallbore or air pistol. Thanks.

Don't know about Iowa, but the Minnesota Rifle and Revolver club's site lists a lot of Bullseye and other matches in Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. http://www.mrra.org/schedule.htm
I know they have a Wednesday night air pistol league match in the Twin Cities.

I tried to find an air pistol match and I could not find one in Minnesota or Wisconsin so Jim and I decided to hold one on Saturday, April 1st at the Bloomer Rod and Gun in Bloomer, Wisconsin. But that is probably too far for you to drive. Besides regulation match we will also have a commercial SIUS system set up to run a seperate best shot or 10.9 competition. $2 for five shots. 100% of the entry fees will be paid out to the winner. Hopefully we can generate interest in air pistol.

Looks like I may have to dig out my high power stuff so I can have something to shoot this summer. I know they shoot at Van Meter and ENGC shoots south of Omaha. I was hoping to find some indoor stuff. Thanks.

HP and Smallbore rifle at Bucksnort Shooting Club near Marshall, MO. (just under 4 hours from Des Moines)

We do have free lodging and camping on site, however. We have some Van Meter guys that come down to shoot.

The schedule is on the club's Facebook page.
