I'm looking for any AR-15 friendly rifle ranges in Southeast PA. The only one I know of is in French Creek State Park, and you're limited to 3 rounds per mag there. Is anybody aware of any other ranges? Thanks! Andy

MedicAJ, Sounds like you are in the Reading area. About 13 miles to the West, off of Rt #422 is The Lebanon Valley Gun Club. Yearly membership is required. If you want to go as my guest to try it out, maybe we can hook up. Where do you run EMS?

Actually, I live in Prospect Park, which is between Philly and Chester right off I-95. French Creek is about a 50 minute drive for me. I work for a few Hospital-Based Paramedic Units in Delaware County. Andy

Andy - Classic Pistol in Southhampton, is indoors (so its a short range) but they allow everything up to, and including 308. You might also try the public range in Wilmington, Delaware (Ommalanden) down on Rt.13. The range is a little longer, and the range time is cheap ($4/hr last time I was there)

I shoot at Classic Pistol all the time ( as much as work allows). Here is their web site to check them out and get directions: [url]http://www.classicpistol.com/[/url] Here's web address for 2 other ranges in the area: [url]http://www.geocities.com/haugh58/ATGLENSPORTS.html[/url] [url]http://www.sunsethillrange.com/main.html[/url] Do a search for ranges in PA on the NRA website here: [url]http://www.nrahq.org/shooting/shootingrange/[/url]

If you don't mind driving a little further West... There is Mt.Penn, Exeter, and Ontelauntee... 3 different places within 6-12 miles of French Creek. In Exeter, there is "University Gun Club"... Pretty big place, goes out to 300 yards... Summarized rules: NO FULL AUTO / Behave & use common sense. This is where ALL the local cops shoot. Membership is $75 yr. + $30 initiation fee. In Mt.Penn, there is "Daniel Boone Rod & Gun Club"... Pretty small place, secluded, private, 25,50 & 100 yards. Only rule: BYOB[:)] NO FULL AUTO + use common sense and manners... Bumpfiring is not a good idea here. Membership is $15 Yr. + $10 initiation fee. In Ontelauntee, there is a place to just "RAISE HELL".(Friends have been going here for years & never a problem) Pretty much anything goes... Just don't kill anyone. Full Auto / Bumpfire / Whatever... It's nothing more than an abandoned quarry in the middle of a bunch of land. Probably about 85-100 yards across. Bring anything you can "carry". No vehicle access, about a 10 minute walk from your vehicle...Through grass,trails & woods. Pretty secluded. If your interested in any of these places, drop me an E-mail... yullose@webtv.net Me & a few buddies usually go shooting 3-4 times a month... Mostly at Daniel Boone, and sometimes Ontelautee. Never shot at University, but checked it out 2-weeks ago...REAL nice. .....ART
