Delemorte is a member there and here, he's taken me to the outdoor and indoor ranges––very nice facilities there.

I've been a member for several years. Good people, good faciliies, lots of activities. It's run very professionally.  

New members have to go through a lot more to get full membership these days compared to when I first joined. Background checks, higher initiatioin fee, shooting qualifications, etc. There was a surge of interest a couple years ago and the board had to put some checkpoints in place to ensure the membership maintained a degree of maturity.

Most of the RSOs are good guys who will pretty much leave you alone so long as you're not a jerk. There are a couple every now and then who seem to look over your shoulder a little too much but they are the exception.

I'll be spending most of this Wednesday at the outdoor range (I finally have a week off of work). Let me know if you're intererested in meeting me there and I'll show you around and you can shoot as my guest.

Just got home from the indoor facility. Been a member about 2 years and love it. Safe, friendly and a very nice facility.

If you shoot 1x per month or more, its money well spent

best money I ever spent

I looked into it myself a couple of years ago, but then I did my ccw qualification shoot at Mecklenburg Wildlife Club and liked that a lot so I signed up there.

I'm currently a member at RCWA, mainly due to the fact it's less then 12 miles from my office, after work it's nice to be able to get there and do some shooting before it gets dark. on the other hand, i live in clt, and have thought about the charlotte rifle and pistol club as well.

a few questens;
what distances do they have for rifle, how is the pistol shooting set up ?, all out door or do they have an indoor pistol range as well ?, covered bays for shooting ?

They have a nice indoor range in the Matthews area. I've been known to go there during my lunch break at work (I work in Matthews).

Rifle range goes to 300 yards. then there's the combat range where you can have a lot of fun moving and shooting pistol, rifle, shotgun, whatever.

Plinking and pistol ranges are limited to 2000 fps and go to about 75 yards. Pistol  range is target only while the plinking ranges are move versitile (paper, steel, bowling pins, etc.) Pistol and one of the plinking ranges have covered shooting positions. The other plinking range and the combat range are open.

Then there're the shotgun ranges (skeet, trap, etc) I'm not in to that so I can't really tell you a lot about that side of the range.

$500 initiation fee, and around $200 per year for dues.  So it's like $700 out of pocket to get started.  This is why I'm not a member yet.

Sinsir, TRGuy is a member, give him a call.

Let me add it is a CLUB. You are expected to contribute time and effort each month in addition to the fees.

It is a large well maintained facility with no employees. The members keep it up.
