Well? How much do you pay? I've been thinking about joining a gun club because it's just hard to find a good place to shoot farther than 100yards. One one I've been looking at is very nice. After a one time membership fee it is only $20 per month.

Do most of the people here belong to a club?

$40 a year for a 100, 75,50,25 yd rifle and 7 yd pistol
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 6:22:52 PM EDT


$185.00/year. $20.00 deposit for an access key.

For somewhere around 1040 hours a year, this is cheap entertainment.

ETA: I do have my own range but this is one I do try to promote for the firearms community.

Mine costs fifteen dollars a year.

I've been trying to get them to raise it for several years, to provide enough funds to have more than a gate and a berm. They keep saying that if they raise it to twenty dollars a year, they will lose members.

Most of the members are cheap bastards, it would seem.

The upside is, there are very few rules.

Not me. There are plenty of places I can shoot for free, and a couple by-the-hour places, so I see no need to pay for days I'm not shooting.

$25/year. Simple but pleasent and never crowded...unless the arfcommers are there

It's $125.00 a year for a range that has a couple of 200 yard ranges, a 50 yard range and a 600 yard range as well as an indoor pistol range.  I don't belong as my brother owns 40 acres outside of town, plus a friend owns 300 acres 45 minutes from my place.

Around $12 a month....     pistol & rifle ranges ( new 600 yd. rifle range ) trap, skeet, sporting clays, action pistol, cowboy action, etc...     they only allow full-auto at organized shoots and unfortunately for me they don't allow .50 BMG rifles.

Link Posted: 8/21/2004 6:35:52 PM EDT
$50 per year at one and $40 per year at the other.

Not a penny....
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 6:41:06 PM EDT
$175 per year for the range at the NRA headquarters here in Virginia.

Unfortunately, it’s only 50 yards.

However, it’s indoors and allows rifles.  Also, no one fusses about rapid fire, number of rounds in the magazine, drawing from a holster or such (though full auto is prohibited, as is black powder)

I go maybe once a week, so it averages a bit over $3 a visit.  I just wish I could get off so easily with my ammo costs per visit!!

Owl hollow right? I go there too :)

We have several shooting ranges that you can use for free here in Mo. also have friends and family that own land that we can hunt and shoot on, never gave much thought about people having to pay to use a shooting range, what do you guys get at these ranges for the fees you pay,Do you get free targets, or what ???  

Not me. There are plenty of places I can shoot for free, and a couple by-the-hour places, so I see no need to pay for days I'm not shooting.

I had an "accident" where some ammo exploded on the bench in front of me and I ended up with shrapnel in my arm.  The gun range gave me a free lifetime family membership.  Very nice, and I figure it was to make me not want to sue them or something, but really I blame nobody for what happened.  But, it was a nice gesture.  
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 7:17:07 PM EDT
It's $130 the first year with $100 of that used for upgrade and new land to shoot on. After that it's only $30/year. It's very hard to find a place to shoot in my area due to all the new homes being built.
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 7:17:25 PM EDT
$40 a year. Must be a member of two pro-gun lobbying organizations (NRA/GOAL, for example).

Two enclosed, heated shooting houses from which we shoot at targets outside.
Pistol range has 10', 25', and 50' targets.
Rifle range has 50 yd, 75, yd, 100 yd., 150 yd. and 200 yd. ranges.
Full auto allowed, pistol cal. only, 3 rd. bursts.
Trap range closed at this time due to state's Lead Shot Initiative (we are in wetlands)
All rifles and shotguns w/slugs allowed on rifle ranges. No hassle about semi-autos, just shoot from the shoulder (only rule)

Locked gate with comb. for members and local police only. Police shoot down here next to everybody else, no problems. No bar, no clubhouse- policy is: guns and alcohol do not mix.

Good place, good people.

$ 0

It's 5 bucks each day you go to shoot at the local range north of Phoenix.

Or totaly free if you drive another 5 miles out into the desert.

$97.50 a year.  Never have to pay another penny unless I need more than two targets per visit.  Plus, when the 100yd rifle range is empty, I can work on transition drills, bounce bullets off the berm, etc.  Can also set up barricades, barrels, etc on the pistol range.  Good folks there!
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 7:31:06 PM EDT
200 a yr,....

all the mud you can handle when it rains,,,,

no rules, with spots out to 400 yds..

the first yr I got it,I had to talk myself into it due to the cost......

now I would not be able to handle a "real" range...

<wait I take back the NO rules line...... you cant fire at the tress...... sure bring your own washing mach, TV or propane tank.. but leave the trees alone...>
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 7:32:16 PM EDT
$20/yr for the 100 yard range 45 minutes from my parents' house (my brother and cousin are constant shooting companions, I go home about every other weekend to hang out and decompress from work).

$50/yr for the 100 yard range about 45 minutes from my apartment.  This one is nicer, smaller trap range (one station with supplied thrower instead of an open field), but it has seperate pistol and rifle ranges.

I'm happy with the prices I pay for each, I think I get my money's worth, both are state owned (Maryland), so I'm glad to be a thorn in the anti's sides.

Link Posted: 8/21/2004 7:42:03 PM EDT
$12 for an hour at NRA HQ. Nicest range I've ever seen too. AC, friendly staff, snack and soda machines...
Link Posted: 8/21/2004 7:46:05 PM EDT
Nothing.....I just open the back door or go shooting in the Clark County Forest here in WI. It"s about 2 hr's drive. You can get a camping permit for about $5 a day and pitch your tent or trailer anywere in the forest.

144.00 or so per year, billed monthly,  for a range with no rules against class 3, no  bullshit rules against bump or rapid fire, and who will do transfers for members for nearly nothing and guns for dealer cost plus 10%.

A bargain.

Mine is $75 a year.  That includes the pistol range (5 yd to 25 yd) and 100 yd rifle range.  It also gets me a discount on skeet.

I shoot mostly at a State owned public range, but I belong to a club that maintains the range. Cost $15 for the privalege of cleaning up other peoples trash and cutting grass. Up side is that whenever we schedule an event the range belongs to us. In essence we have a 200 yard covered range with ten benches on concrete plus a covered pistol range. Not a bad deal.

$7.50 per year + about a dollar for my own key.
