Great staff (okay I'm biased).  Hands down the best indoor range in the south east... or north east... or central.. definately a contender for best indoor range in the US - no kidding....  There is a great range in AZ but ours is more personal.
Mancom interactive targetry (the best there is - no discussion needed for those who are in the know)
Plus an 11,000 sqft indoor paintball arena and a great pro shop.

Hello ! I'm in Michigan.  Wife and I visited KY this past week looking for a home to retire to.  We seem to like the area of Somerset.  Any ranges/Gun clubs  that would allow AR's?  We also visited Corbin and London. Nice State you fellows have there. I hope that this works out for us.

There is a free gun range at the Kleber Wildlife Managment Area.  It's a good 30 minutes northwest of Georgetown.  That's the closest free range to Georgetown that you will find.  You have to shoot through steel tubes which isn't that great but it works.

New here. I usually just look around, keep my mouth shut and stay hidden. (occupational hazard)  I live in MOntgomery County (whenever Uncle Sam doesn't have me somewhere else) and I belong to the Montgomery County Fish and Game Club. There is a rifle range with 300yard targets covered shooting lanes. A seperate pistol lane, and I believe a trap house. This is located out by the land fill. It is a private range $30 a year.

Uncontrolled and you can shoot about anything you'd like. Just show up and shoot.

Ten shooting benches, covered, on concrete. Two hundred twenty yards to the berm.

Range is maintained by the Caldwell County Sportsmans Club. When they have scheduled events they own the range. They have Benchrest matches the second Sunday of the month. Other events just seem to happen. I don't have their phone number. No real facilities are availible besides an outhouse so if ya need it, take it with ya.

Ok fellas, fess up and tell us where you shoot.


I shoot at the same range.......

Gwhizzer, there is a public gun range that is operated by the Forestry Dept. right outside of Burnside. It is the Keno gun range. Very well maintained. I think it is $3 per car. It also has a nice restroom facility, plenty of parking and a concrete sidewalk out to the range. Hope this helps.

There is a pretty good 100 yard range at Loylds wildlife reserve in Crittenden however you do have to shoot through the pipes off the bench some idiots some years back shot a bunch of holes in the lumber yard buildings and that ended the open rifle range.

You also can only place your targets so high on the stands because of those steel angled baffles they stuck on the ends of the tubs. You only have a rectangular slot at the end of the tube to shoot through. There's a big trench carved in the ground in front of all the tubes from all the shots that have ricochet'd straight down into the ground. A lot of first time shooters learning with iron sights have real trouble lining up a decent shot there now.

If you're shooting from a benchrest of some kind or a bipod and using optics (sighting in your deer rifle, etc) you can make do, but its' not the best place to take someone who's learning to shoot a rifle anymore.

From what I understand, it's entirely the fault of people who can't obey the posted rules of the range, especially the shotgun rule. The sign specifies no shotguns unless you're shooting slugs, and people continually broke that rule firing buckshot through the tubes, resulting in the WMA people having to replace the wooden target stands far more often than they might otherwise.

So... thanks to stupid people, it's now a much less friendly range to use than it used to be.

I am at FT Campbell and I would like to update the range info here.

Range 16 on FT Campbell is open on the weekends and training holidays from 0930 until ???

There is no cost to use this range.

You can hang paper targets out to about 150meters and they have various steel silhouettes placed from 200 to 750 meters.

Rifles, pistols, and shotguns welcome, but they must be registered with the Provost Marshal's office before bringing them on post. This can be done at the welcome center located at gate 4.

There is a covered shooting area with concrete floor and wooden shooting benches with seats built on. Free targets are also provided if you don't bring any.

The range is located near the north end of Market Garden road. It is run by a nice guy named Dale that volunteers his time so please bring him something cold to drink or a little something to snack on if you stop by. He is out there all day.

Since FT Campbell is also home to the 5th SFG, it is really interesting to see some of the privately owned fireamrs these guys bring to the range. It is a very friendly atmosphere and run as a "Gentleman's range".

I am out there at least every other Saturday at opening time so send me a PM if you want to get together and shoot sometime.

I was at FT Campbell's Range 16 with my camera and took a couple of shots of the range.

The green target stand on the left is mine and it was at 25 meters. You can see the white metal silhouettes out from 200 meters to 750.



Here is a little more zoomed in on the metal targets. The black long rectangular thing below the farthest target on the right is an old APC hull.

Only if you have an ID card to get on base or someone signs you on as a guest I think. Also any guns you bring to the range have to be registered on base.

Re the range at Loylds Wildlife Reserve in Crittenden.   I have not been able to confirm this, but the rumor in the area is several rifles have been stolen by people sneaking out of the woods when you are down range with your target.    I've been on this range a few times when it is deserted during the week day mornings, so I just sling the rifle and go downrange.

Ashland, Kentucky has the Ashland Gun Club facility which was mentioned earlier as well as North East Kentucky Fish & Game which has a rather nice facility with up to 400 meter ranges and a variety of activites for all those who enjoy sports that go bang.

Both are member only but with managable prices, if anyone is interested just send me a message.

Randy is a good friend of mine.  Obviously my favorite place to shoot!!!!!

I shot at Randy's Range last weekend and had a good time.  It was definitely like shooting in someone's back yard (which you are), but the place was very tidy and Randy was exceptionally cool.  It was worth the ten bucks he charges.  My friend and I were the only guys with black rifles (his was an AR-10) and I don’t think his regulars with the .22's liked the noise.  We were well mannered but I still feel like we were getting the stink eye.  Keep in mind he only has three benches so if it's crowded you are going to have to take turns.  All in all Randy gets a thumbs up from me.

There is a new range for 2011 that just recently opened it's doors in Cave City Kentucky, just South of Glasgow, in between Glasgow and Bowling Green.  The range goes by the name of Cedar Ridge Shooting Academy.  

Current ranges :

2- 40 yard pistol bays, with turning targets
1- 100 yard general purpose rifle/handgun range
1- 300 yard rifle range
1- Trap ranges with 3 professional wobbler voice activated throwers

Future Ranges:

1- extra 100 yard general purpose
1- 600 yard rifle range
1- 3d Archery range

On site:  There is a gun shop on sight which deals in everything from handguns and accessories to rifles.  Gun shop contains a members meeting/banquet room, restrooms, kitchen for event catering, and ranges.

Membership is available or by the day pricing.

This dealer is a Class 3 dealer, and carries a wide variety of guns including AR style rifles and accessories.

On site trainers and classes available covering a wide range of things, from CCD and saftey to tactics and self defense.

one on one training available.

I have been a member now for a few weeks, use the place all the time.  It's getting a little better every day but has tons of room for upgrades and future endeavors.  




**** Please note this range has changed ownership and therefore names ****  I have not been there since sometime last year, no new info on the overall progress of the range.

Yet another update :-) I went today to see what's changed here, looks like it's a private range now but owned by some people who were working there previously.  It's a quarterly membership or open to public on Saturdays.  Ranges are still the same, their website however is not.  See it here. .
