Spam,

I'm surprised no one has posted info about the AZ ranges.... Here goes:

Rio Salado Sportsmans Club is probably the closest outdoor range to Chandler.

Nearest indoor range would be Caswells in Mesa.

In the NW Valley would the Ben Avery Range, which is probably one of the the best publc ranges in the Southwest US.

In the West Valley would be Shooters World/Arizona Sportsman, which is a decent indoor range.

I think I've left a couple out. I'll update the list soon.

Casa Grande Range, Take I10 to I8 west to exit 174/Trekkle road.

Go left/south on Trekkle, road will turn to gravel, continue about 2 miles or so to left turn toward mountians on left.

At skeet club go right past LEO range to public range on left.

Range has covered concrete benches and no range officer.

It is owned by CG park service.

Full auto OK. No Tannerite as of last I heard.

Bring your own target and stand, ground is hard to drive pins in.

0 to 500 yards 250 of that is cleared out to 500 is up the side of moutian.

Be careful on weekends of poor gun safety/alcohol impaired shooters, it is better to come out on a weekday.

Clean up after yourself please, as some shooters bring glass, trash and stuff for targets and leave a mess. We do not want to be in this group.

Boy scouts and city put new roof on a couple years ago, some nuts have been shooting holes in it. If you see this happening, get license # and call city parks to report it.

Surprised no one mentioned Desert Trails in Tucson. It's on Valencia, past the Pima Air and Space Museum. Seem to be pretty nice folks.

See y'all at the Pima Fairgrounds tomorrow.

Are there any ranges in or near Flagstaff?

i used to live up in flag, we went out to the cinder pits along the road to the east. it's been years though, not sure what it's like now.
Link Posted: 5/12/2004 10:59:43 PM EDT



In the West Valley would be Shooters World/Arizona Sportsman, which is a decent indoor range.




Shooters World is no longer owned by or affiliated with Arizona Sportsman (will someone please tell AZ Sportsman this!!!). it is owned and operated by Arizona Tactical, and is open to the public. range fee is $12 per shooter per hour, but memberships are available ($189 1st year/$99 renewal....1/2 off for LE/Military/Fire) which give you free unlimited range time and discounts on guns and classes.
pistol and rifle rentals are available....

new website is www.azshootersworld.com

FLAGSTAFF:


The cinder pits just west of town north of I-40 on A-1 MTN road exit have been closed (for public safety, according to posted notices).

Cinder hills off of 89 are usually too populated with ATV'ers, but if you explore a bit (make the left turn instead of the right turn at the Y-intersection before reaching the main OHV area) you can find secluded spots. Just make sure you don't cross over onto the Sunset crater land...

There are a couple cinder hills east of town, south of I-40, but they are extremely popular these days...

South of town, take Kelly Canyon RD exit, westbound, continue approx. 1 mile to a nice cinder pit.

NOTE: PLEASE pack out your trash (and some of the trash from disrespectful a-holes that were there before you), USFS officials want these areas closed because of washing machines, etc that keep ending up out there. If we all do our part these areas will remain open!

www.phoenixrodandgun.org

I was there today for the first time to meet up with another member, and man was I impressed!
No full auto, no .50bmg, and I assume no tannerite, but the place is set up great and there's plenty of room to spread out and breathe. The cost for a year's membership($75/individual/yr, $85/family/year) is ridiculously low compared to what the range is set up for. I'm planning to join soon, and I'd encourage others to check it out too..





Sending my application tomorrow, was gonna join usery pass, but members only M-F and shooting til sunset swayed me. Plus I've lived on both sides of town and if I move back to the west side I won't be out my club!

There's a cinder pit west of town, too... take the Bellemont (Camp Navajo) exit off of I-40 and drive west on the frontage road on the south side of the interstate. It will lead you to a cinder pit that doesn't seem to get a lot of traffic (aside from the trains running alongside).

Ranges Suck!!


Get a Arizona map and look for BLM land or National Forrest land.

The desert is way more fun to shoot in. Full-auto, .50bmg, and Tannerite friendly. And I always like to take my grill for a cook out. Then when done shooting. Nothing like a good cigar and a few cold beers and some BS'ing.

You forgot to mention the FATS facility.

Now that you mention it, the last time I was at my favorite shooting spot, a fellow came by and told me his business partners and he would be fencing off their property and knocking down the hills that quad and dirt bike riders use in the near future. We talked for a bit, and seemed like a pleasant, reasonable fellow. It turned out that I wasn't on their property, but after the fencing goes up, I'll need to find a new route.

I also know that Del Webb Festival Ranch is going in east of where I shoot, so for the time being I'm not worried about them.

What's your favorite town in AZ to live?

I'll be relocating in a couple years, and I need to start doing homework. I'd like to be able to get a lot of land, and be able to shoot on it out to 300 yards or so.

Looking for a climate with no snow, good schools (catholic?), low crime rate, and a restaurant or two in striking distance. We like mexican food, rifles, and a swimmin' pool.

Any advice appreciated. PM or email me to avoid co-opting the thread.

Thanks Men,

$60 per year gets you a gate combo and unlimited 7 day a week access.



I'm definitely joining. Just moved to Maricopa 5 months ago. Was a rifle club member back home with an indoor range and have been looking for another club.

Also found some BLM land west of Maricopa to shoot at. Took the AR out there on Sat. From Maricopa go west on 238 ten miles to 83rd. Then head south 4 miles to a nice little saddle in the desert between two hills. Looks like nobody picks up their brass or targets, though. I shot my rounds, picked them up then filled my garbage bag with others' shells. Next time I go out there I'll bring two garbage bags and try to tidy up. Maybe I'll put up a crude sign letting them know to haul out ther friggin' trash!

I haven't seen it posted so Desert Trails in Tucson in closed. It will become a concrete plant. If anyone knows a good spot in Tucson to shoot without lots of restrictions, especially on the east side please let me know(PM or email). I'm an SOT and could use a place to shoot NFA without anyone getting their panties in a bind.

I finally made it out to the Tucson South East Regional Park Shooting Range. It is $6 per person to shoot all day, 16 and over. 15 and younger shoot free with adult.

You take Houghton South from I-10 and make the first right on E. Brekke Rd. Follow it to the end and make another right. In just a few hundred feet, the range is on the left at 11296 S. Harrison Road. It is plainly marked.

It is open from 7-4 Thursday through Sunday March 1 to Nov 30. Dec 1 to Mar 28 winter hours 8-5 Thursday through Sunday. Closed all legal holidays, I am assuming all the ones county employees get, not the ones normal people get.

This is a very nice, clean range. They provide target frames and have targets for sale for very cheap. They also have sandbags and rests. Ranges from 10 yards incrementing to 50 and then there is a 200 Yard section with target points at 100, 150, and 200. There are many shooting benches. Berms and awning/cover are very nicely constructed.

Range personnel set up rules and line conditions to match the protocol at Ben Avery. 15 minutes of timed shooting with 1 minute warning, and then cease fire. The rules are strict, but if you are safe and attentive, it is what it should be, a very, very safe place to shoot. Nice folks working there too, mostly volunteers.

I posted this because it answers several questions I had before I finally made it out there.

They also rent spotting scopes, chronographs, Benchmaster rifle rests. Eyes and ears are available for minimal fee, if you don't have your own. Bottled water is $0.50 and there is a drinking fountain too. Parking is paved.

Cased firearms are the safest to bring to the line, and be sure of your muzzle direction prior to uncasing. They are very attentive to this, polite, but attentive. They want to maintain a perfect safety record and keep the place in business.

They have recently broken ground for a dedicated CCW/Shooting class range. Original planning was for a trap/skeet range addition. They have the land for this, but haven't purchased hardware (several years late). This would be one very busy place if it had these facilities.

Wish I'd read the thread fully through before discovering that for myself this afternoon...

I'm with you. It's way more relaxing to go out to the desert to shoot. I always clean up my mess so you can't tell anyone has been shooting there. So I don't have to worry about someone else shooting there.

I just bought a house about six minutes away from this range, and was wondering if anyone had visited it.

I lived in Douglas for two years and wish I could find a range like that up here near Tucson (private memberships, open to public, private member base can use it anytime, holidays, whenever). Then again in a really small town like that there were only a handful of us there at any given time, most of the time I was the only shooter on the line. Oh well. God I hate big cities.

So are there any areas off of Houghton/Wentworth/Hwy 83 near Davidson Canyon/Marsh Station Rd, etc, that offer enough land to shoot 500+ meters in the open desert?

I am a big fan of the Southeast Regional Range. THey are the best range I have ever been to. Great people, low prices, safe, rent out cool stuff. I am a regular: once a week for the past two years or so.
