Wide open desert, 15 miles north of Durango exit on US95 North. Just go past the Paiute cop shop a few miles, identify the little mesas on your right, pull off, locate abandoned vehicles and old appliances. Lock, load, shoot. Free. :p

I have a favor to ask of you folks....I have lived here for a year and a half and while I been invited to shoot at Desert Sportsman several times, I have not been able to get consistant answers about membership. Also, I have NEVER gotten a call back when I leave a message on the machine. I have been told that membership is frozen and I have beent told it is not. My question is since you folks seem to spend a lot of time there, can anyone tell me the straight scoop on how to become a member? I know NRA membership is required which is no problem. Also can you give a quick run down on hours, facilities etc. Thanks in advance for any help.

Thanks for the info Wolf, I have never been comfortable at overly regulated ranges. I like safe ranges but I think that guy you talked about used to work in Kalifornia, he used to bust my balls too. The real reason I want to join is the range is less than 5 minutes from my door!!!! It would be VERY convieninet for those times when you only have an hour or two to kill. Thanks again and have a good time in Phoenix. Richard

Why pay to shoot when you can shoot for free out in the desert. The only reason I could be coerced into joining DS is to satisfy the CMP criteria so I could buy one of those cut-rate Garands.

I gave up on Desert Sportsman and joined Boulder Rifle an Pistol club. They are CMP affiliated as well if you are looking for that. If thats all you need to join a club for you can join the Garand Collectors Assoc. That qualifies you for CMP sales as well.

I'm with blisters! The only range I've ever been to was Washoe county range on Pyramid hyway to watch some guys doing a .50 caliber shoot and also to qualify for permit. The hills are alive with the sound of music (gunfire).

Made it out there last weekend.. Had a blast with the dad's M1A, but forgot ear protection... Only fired 3 rounds from the bushy (its got a mini y-comp) before I set it down for the day.. =( I did shoot about 60-80 rounds from the M1A, and it was no big deal.. Oh well, time to buy some ear protection and go out again... BTW: If that steel target (one with the three hinged targets) was yours, me or my M1A had NOTHING TO DO with the middle bar being broken off. LOL =P

I use the same range you do. I also use another on the way to Searchlight. Can't beat the price and no one complains about rapid fire.
Link Posted: 6/3/2004 10:55:57 PM EDT
Where by Searchlight do you go?

Off of Nipton road somewhere, or 95?

New range is opening up on 06/12/04 between Fernley and Silver Springs. Go to www.mustangrange.com for details.

I'll give it a try when I got some time on my hand....

Discount firearms has moved. THey are no longer on boulder highway. They said they were relocating somewhere off of industrial near the spearmint rhino strip club, but I haven't been able to find them.

Boulder city rifle and pistol club is where I go. The public courtesy range use to be free but INCREDIBLY dangerous. They've made alot of improvements including installing overhead cover and burms but it costs $5 per person now. Small price to pay for a nice, safe range with no drunk yahoos blasting away like maniacs.
