My daughter had a baby last year, our first grandbaby.  Currently live in Eastern NC and am looking to relocate to the Summerville area.

I've been to PSA there, nice stuff.

Any info on ranges in the area, rifle, pistol, skeet and sporting clays?

I've read up on the CCW, looks like some training and fairly easy to get.

Any other thoughts?

Thank you
VP

There are a few decent places to shoot. I’ll have to get with my buddy as he was telling me about a place he was shooting IDPA at. I know at one time this place GTI was hosting shoots but idk if they still are. They used to offer civilian training courses as well and they’re in Barnwell County:

This is the local contact for IDPA:

As far as Sporting Clays goes there are 2 places I can think of. The 1st is Partridge Creek. It is a private club that I’ve been to before and they have a really nice set up. Unfortunately I’m not sure how much longer they’re going to be there as they just built a large Walmart distribution center on one side of it and they just sold the 120 acres on the other side that I’m sure they plan to develop for the amount they were asking. There is an initiation fee along with a yearly membership. It’s located in Dorchester county right next to Berkeley County.

The other place I’ve never been too but is located in Berkeley County and is called Spring Grove Shooting Preserve.

There are a few indoor ranges as well. The best being Palmetto State Armory in Summerville. There is large private club with an outdoor range called Palmetto Gun Club (not affiliated with PSA) located in Summerville. They have 10 pistol lanes, a 200 yard rifle range and 800 yard long range rifle range. There is a cost associated with joining with info on their website.

The other outdoor options are in the Francis Marion National Forest located in Berkeley County. These ranges are open to the public. Twin Ponds is staffed by a Range Officer and has a 25 yard pistol range and 100 yard rifle range. The other is Boggy Head and it is a covered 100 yard rifle range that you can set up targets closer for pistol use. It can be a little wild there sometimes since it is unsupervised and I suggest going with at least one other person as you will need to go downrange at times to change targets and wouldn’t want to leave your stuff unattended.

There used to be quite a bit more but development has either bought up the land it was on or moved close enough to shut it down.
Lennar has purchased the land behind Palmetto Gun Club and I wouldn't be surprised if it causes issues on a long enough timeline.

Summerville has been EXPLODING in population for more than 3 years.  With that comes a huge increase in property value and results in the loss of available land for recreational activities as it is sold for more development for those seeking to move there.
