    When I was a kid there were some air gun clubs where people were shooting air gun field target competition. Anybody still doing that here in Indiana? I’m about an hour north east of Indy area

    Not sure it's exactly what you are talking about, but Hawkeye7br runs indoor air gun matches through the cold months at Riley Conservation Club, outside of Terre Haute.

    We no longer run air gun field target matches. The match director moved away, and turnout was poor due to the difficulty of the sport. We still have the targets.

    Nobody wants the challenge of precision events, it requires effort and is humbling.

    That said, we run an informal indoor 10 meter league in Jan-Feb. Club rifles from CMP are available to borrow, and if you think you can hold it, we have Walther and Anschutz PCP rifles that were used in NCAA competition. Check your ego at the door.

    We can also run indoor air gun silhouette on weekends if there is interest.

    RCC is a long way from the OP. For all others, we're on east side of Terre Haute, just off SR 46.

    I think that's why silhouette died out along with other precision events. Now they want to shoot really fast and occasionally hit a target.

    I agree with you here, but I wish it hadn’t I have always preferred precision shoots more than the speed based events.

    That being said if anyone where to do air gun silhouette, field target or (too a little less interest) benchrest I would be in to compete. I live in Indy and willing to travel reasonably.

    Marion County Fish and Game used to shoot airgun silhouette, I tried it there years ago. Looking at their website, I do not see that listed any more. I thought field target would be fun, but never found a place to shoot it.
