World Shooting Complex

The new World Shooting Complex located in Sparta, Illinois had its grand opening on July 6, 2006. It hosted its first event, The U.S. Open on that same day. It is truly a spectacular place! It covers over 1700 acres with over 250 acres of water, over 3 miles of trap ranges, skeet ranges, sporting clays, pistol & rifle ranges and special venues for cowboy action shooting events.
I had the opportunity to witness the ribbon cutting for this marvelous facility at its grand opening ceremony. This was a double pleasure since my older son was visiting and we were able to go to this event together.
All major sporting goods manufacturers seem to be represented at the World Shooting Complex. They have permanent store fronts that face the mile long trap fields. There are grandstands and benches that allow spectators to watch their favorite shooters in absolute comfort, when they're not shopping at one of the permanent stores or at one of many vendors in what appears to be a mile-long strip of tents.
To my great surprise and pleasure, parking was more than adequate and traffic was well managed and absolutely no problem.
I plan to publish more about this facility, with pictures, in the very near future.
The World Shooting Complex is the new home for the Grand American Trap Shoot. That event will take place in August of 2006. I would encourage you to attend that or any other event that takes place there.
