I’m down near Wilmington and I’m looking for a range that has a bit of freedom. I’ve looked in to Ant Hill and the other one, but both have waiting lists and I’m looking for a range that allows a little more dynamic practice and doesn’t feel so Fuddy.

Does anyone here have a membership to Clear Run Sports in Harrell, NC?  It looks like a good range and it’s far enough out that it shouldn’t be too crowded.

Thanks.

I'm down here too, no where I know of that I can get in to go since the waiting lists are full. So tag for anything really

I contacted Tony Cowden and bought a day pass. I plan to check it out next week. I’ll check back in to report.

I got out to visit and shoot on the Clear Run Sports range. Being used to county-maintained LEO ranges, it felt a lot like a guy with an excavator made a range.  A really nice range, but it lacked the polish of a professional range. However, it lacked nothing else. You were free to shoot wherever you wanted and there were several 50 yard or so ranges with cars, barriers and platforms to use and one 100 yard range. You are allowed to draw, shoot and move as long as you are safe. Few ranges allow that anymore.

I needed to zero a few guns so I headed to the 100 yards range. Thankfully it was in the shade. I zeroed my guns and only saw one other person, an employee. It was a great experience. You don’t even have to police your brass, but I couldn’t help myself, I had to. I also found about 100 pieces of 300BLK brass so I grabbed that and put it in my brass stash.

I plan on joining the range. For $400 a year it’s a good place to shoot.

Looking online the day pass says you have to be the guest of a member?
Did they have steel hanging?
Full auto allowed?

I brought my own targets. I contacted Tony Cowden of Capable Inc. on Instagram and he told me to disregard the member part of the day pass, but I would definitely contact him to get permission if I were you. I got asked by an employee which member I was with and I told him that Tony okayed my visitor pass.

I only shot on the 100 yard range, but I brought my own targets. I didn’t see any steel up on the other ranges, but based on a discussion they had on their Instagram page it wasn’t AR500 and someone shot it all with a rifle. They are in the process of buying AR500 steel.

The rules say ‘No illegal weapons’ so I’m assuming full auto is fine if owned legally. The berms are a little short, watch that muzzle rise.
