I usely don't shoot at a paid rifle range because I live in the country. I have a shooting bench in my garage, when I open my garage door I've a 100 yd. range set up. There is a new range that opened up in my area & I thought I'd check it out. Last time I went to a range (10-15 years ago) payment was by the day ($6.00 or $7.00) I was shell skock when finished my shoot at the new range $16.00 @ 2hr. ($8.00 a hr.) I'm I behine times or is this place real proud of there range?

I wish we had a public range to go to around here but we don't. Lucky I live on the side of a mountain and my whole back yard is one BIG range!

Forgot to mention, that $10/day is for any number of shooters in a particular group.

I grew up in a rural area where my back yard was my range.... I miss that.

That's pretty cool to be able to shoot on your own property! It would be nice not to have to drive out to one each time to shoot, my range is $250 year but it's the ammo cost that is the killer.

BTW my ideal home is one that backs up to the beach with a golf course on one side and a shooting range on the other.

I don't know about the Golf Course thing, I could never manage to get that little ball in that little hole that is so far away. I would rather shoot the darn golf balls. They are fun! they have a tendancy to explode into a mass of rubber string! Way Cool.

Don't think I will be going back to that range. My neighbors will have to put up with me, they live about half a mile from me.

I shoot a lot at Bass Pro Shops now as my old range shut down due to the owners selling out to developers.

Anyhow, Bass Pro Shops charges $8 per hour per person on the indoor pistol range. No reservations on the pistol range, first come, first serve.

The single rifle tube is $9 per hour per person and requires a reservation. 100 yard tube runs under the entire length of the store and part of the parking lot.
