It is on my agenda to open a private range in Monroe County sometime soon.  As long as I get some property which is zoned agriculture, the stupid fucks cant say a word.

If you want to come to Scottsburg I have a 95 yard rifle range and pistol range.  I have a covered area with concrete floor, tables and target holders.  Also we have steel targets for the hand gun range as well as a gong on the 95 yard.  All this looks into a 200 foot hill and no houses for 1.3 miles at 30 degrees.

All I ask is that you do not shoot above the hill and pick up after your self.

Alright my man I'm going to hook you up with some info that you are going to thank me for later, but you will have to get with me later for detailed directions....or I'll post them later if alot of people is interested.
    Anyways I live in Brazil(little town right between Terre Haute and Indy) about 40 minutes from bloomington....there is a range here just outside of town called "Protec" the fella that owns the place is a instructer and also heads up the gun club for Rose Hulman students. really good guy and he only charges $20.00 membership per year and it is only $25.00 for family membership....rifle range os 50,100,200 and 300 has a shotgun range with machines set up to shoot clay pigeons. it a great place to go shoot! also he does allow fully automatic fire.
    Let me know when you want to come shoot and I'll meet you there and show you the ropes of the place

You might want to rethink the Protech range. The owner will come out yelling and screaming randomly. He has stood with me and shot 100s of dollars worth of (my)handloads and we had the grandest of times. The next day he came dow to the range yelling and screaming at me in front of people. He has a self controll problem I'm not willing to deal with it. He did this same crazy stunt 2 times before I learned. If you like dramma and public embarrasment, have at it. If you want almost complete privacy and total respect. Call Favres gunshop in Terre Haute and ask if you can join the conservation club.All are welcome and you can shoot 100–– and 250 when no one else is there(it's almost always empty.) It is gated and you can sigh up and pay $60 a year at Favres gunshop.  I shot at Protech 3 times and 2 of the 3 times Bob came down on his little golf cart yelling and screaming for no reason. I'm just too old for the kiddy shit. Jerryboy

Hmmmm, I'll check into the range at Farve's....as far as Protec the guy's name that runs and owns it is Don and I have never seen a golf cart out there, he drives around an old white van. he is a tall medium build fella that always wears a cowboy hat. I have never seen him yell at anyone, not even dip shits...one of the best guys I know, you must have the wrong fella or something??

Have you tried Sugar Ridge State Park in Winslow, In?  That's where I go.  The range is free.  It has a 25, 50, 100, and 200 yard range.
