Midwest Gun Collectors' Association

Welcome to the "Midwest Gun Collectors' Association" website. We are proud of our association and constantly strive to improve our shooting range. We have approximately 1600+ members for the year 2015. We welcome new members and stress safety and family participation. The membership fee is $100 for the 1st year and $75 if you renew your membership before February 15th of each consecutive year thereafter. If you are interested in joining our association please click on the membership application below.

All ranges are open.

To whom it may concern. MGCA will NOT host persons wanting Concealed Carry training. Our insurance will not allow it. NO ONE is allowed to carry a firearm on their person on the club property whether open or concealed no matter what.

We now have a small range for shotguns, including all Taurus and S&W pistols w/buckshot on stationary targets only. This range is located to the left of Range #9. No back boards will be supplied so bring your own authorized targets.

Range 9 is now open. There are five shotgun w/buckshot ONLY shooting stations open for trap shooting only.

The range is located on county road 00 on the Woodford/Marshal county line just off of Rt 26 between Springbay and Lacon.

We now have nine ranges and an archery range for all members to enjoy. The road to ranges 4 thru 9 is between the archery range and range#3. We have completed the new meeting/maintenance building at the top of the hill across from range 4. See the new photos below of the improvements and a better explanation.

MGCA no longer sponsors a gun show. A facility large enough to accommodate the show is not available and the profits from the past shows were not large enough to cover the expenses.

Regular meetings for MEMBERS ONLY are on the 1st Wednesday of each of the following months: January, March, May, July, September, and November. These meetings are held at 6:30 pm at the range maintenance building at the range. Meetings after the gun shows will no longer be held.
