I was in a similar situation to you. I knew no one there and didn't own a shotgun. Decided to give a Thursday Open to the public" night a try. Some of the nicest guys I've ever met there. Just about everyone there was urging me to try this shotgun or that shotgun. Was a great time! Almost even forgot to get my signatures that night til one of the guys asked if I needed a sponsor. We have a meeting there tonight. If you'd like a tour just ping me, I'll bring you around. I'm there quite often.Might just do that, thanks. And no shotgun = no trap [sad2]
It's a great group.. I just joined up myself. Met a bunch of people my first time there, and continue to meet more folks each time I go. Getting a few sponsors is very easy.. just show up and say hello.Recent LTC recipient, NRA and Goal member, living in the Boston area, thinking about applying to SRG. One concern right off the bat: it looks like meetings are on Tuesdays but I have class Tuesday nights and I'd rather not wait till the summer when class is over to join a range. Any suggestions? Website also asks for TWO sponsors, yet I don't know a single member :/

You're more than welcome to shoot a round of trap with my shotgun, and in general a few of the guys have a spare for just such purposes.
Thanks for all the info, I won't be able to be there tomorrow either. But I know my brother is also interested so I'll pass the info a long to him in case he wants to go tomorrow. Thanks again.Welcome to SR&G Jason. SR&G is "lead-free" at the top of the hill (trap & skeet) because we shoot out towards the Sudbury River. We shoot steel shot (#7) only.
We have ammo available for sale for use at the trap and skeet fields. It's $8/box of 25 rounds. Birds are $3 for members and $4 for non-members. The best way to see what its all about is to show up on a Sunday afternoon around 1 and tell the person behind the desk that you've never shot either trap or skeet (I'd suggest starting with trap) and would like some help. Mr. Happy (Mike) has been holding some informal introduction-to-trap lessons on Thursday nights. You can PM him here or get him through the Club's website (Southborough Rod & Gun Club). I won't be there tomorrow but will be the next Sunday. I have a couple people already that want to try it out so the more the merrier. We'll start around 1 and we'll be on a second field so you shouldn't worry about slowing things down or being thrown in with the more experienced shooters.
Don't worry about not having a shotgun... we'll find you a couple to try. Just don't blame me when you get hooked.
The indoor range is not used all that much, especially during the week. Last time I used it before the Pistol League match, the last sign-in was that morning.Hello. Looking to join a club and southboro or marlboro seems the best place for me. Wondering about use during the weekday, as I would most likely use the range before noon weekdays
