I'm from Berkshire County in Massachusetts, about 45 minutes west of Springfield, and am a member at the S&W Shooting Sports Center.



I've seen several other Massachusetts residents on the forum. Maybe there are enough for a "field trip" to the S&W range.

I am also a member at S&W. I would like to get together with other Mass residents for a good time at the shooting center. I will be out of town next week (17-21march) so I will check back then. I live in chicopee only about 5 min from S&W. Good Idea to start a MASS thread.

Anyone know how to get into a S&W tour?


To the best of my knowledge they've discontinued the tours. However, if enough MP-Pistol.com members are interested they may give us a special tour.



I just posted a Poll on the forum to see who might be interested.

Greetings

I am from Franklin County,just a bit up the road from Springfield and S&W..

I shoot at Franklin County League of Sportsman in Deerfield..

A tour of S&W sounds great but these arthritic legs of mine wouldn't take it..

Took a gun down there a few years ago when you could get into the front office at the factory

where there was a small measum..You got to talk to the guy that was going to fix your gun,maybe while you waited..

It was lunch time so they escorted us to the cafeteria, and that was a bit of a walk,darn nice place to eat like a nice restaurant..

Guess you drop things off at the gaurd shack out front,that is as close as you get today..

rivey and I shot at the S&W range last evening, and discussed the possibility of a shoot there for local MP-Pistol.com members. We'll try to put something together if anyone is interested.

I grew up in Springfield but have not lived there since leaving for the Navy in 1987; for the last 12 years

I've called southeast Georgia home (I am now a retired Submariner) and rarely miss it. I flew up there last

week to bury a nephew (a Marine) and stopped by the S&W Shooting Sports Center to check it out. I had

called to inquire about a tour, was transferred to Bob Draper's desk but got nothing but his voicemail; that

was it. S&W had always been there while growing up (just like the Springfield Armory, NBA Hall of Fame,

and Indian Motocycles Factory...) but was never interested until now. My brother, however, is an avid

collecter of guns of all kinds.

While I would like to join you all who eventually attend, I doubt that I will be joining you. It is VERY easy

to locate the factory, though. Travelling down I291 you drive right by it. Springfield itself has really gone to

SH*T since I lived there, though, so be careful when driving through any vicinity of downtown. Good luck!

Robmcd I had a great time at S&W thanks for all the advice and PD stories and a special thanks to letting me shoot your HK the only thing now is I need to purchase one of my own. Count me in for any future trips if I'm available I will be there.

I'm new to the boards and would like to get to know some of y'all! I'm still a rookie in terms of owning a firearm (in the process of applying for a license now actually) but I've been shooting for about 2 years now and I'm hopefully going to pick up an M&P in 9mm towards the end of July. Any updates on getting a tour together?
