Name: Popguns

Addy: 30 South Post Road, Indy, 46219

Phone: 317-897-8660

Web: www.popguns.com

Directions: On the east side of indy, from I-465 take Washington St. east for one mile.  Turn south on Post Road.  Go 400 ft and popguns is on the west side of Post Rd.

What can shoot: Handgun calibers only (.22lr to .44 Mag) in either handgun or long gun. No Rifle calibers, black powder or shotguns

Fees: $9.00 per 1/2 hr. additional minutes are 30 cents a minute.
individual range membership: 190 per year
family range membership: 250 per year

If you pay for a yearly membership there is no per hour fee and you can shoot as much as you want for the year.

Also, by having a membership, if there is line of people ahead of you, you get to go ahead of people who are not members.

There are six lanes on the range.



Yet again Popguns AKA Family Indoor shooting range has raised there prices. It is now
$18.00 for up to a Hour on one of the lanes.
$129.00 for a weekday membership. Weekends are discounted for members! ($6.00)

Ammo has also gone up! Last I saw 9mm FMJ was over $10.50 a box! When Gander Mountain sell it for $7.99 a box.

They are becomming the Dons Guns of the East Side, they had a Yogo underfolding AK47 for $599.00 when you can purchase the same gun for $469.00 online and pay a dealer to accept the transfer. They are also trying to sell the 9mm AR15 that was in the rental program for an almost new price, not to mention that the only reason it is for sale is because it kept breaking.

These are just a few of the many reason why I stoped Working/ Shooting there!

One nice thing I can say for popguns is that they let you fire full auto pistol caliber guns on the indoor range>  Or atleast, they used to...  I won't forget the first time I went in there back when I still lived in Illinois and was not used to seeing MGs.  There was a group of guys in the range with an Mp5 and a full auto .22 of some sort... It was pretty cool just watching from the outside when you come from a state that dosn't allow any class 3 / NFA ownership.

I've given some thought to the current Pops, and I think this year I'm going to spend my target time out at Eagle Creek instead.  I used to be a member at Pops, but between their prices and the fact they won't allow any type of ammo other than brass, pretty much excludes them for me.  I'm going to start using Wolf ammo in my CZs because it's the ammo I can afford.
And, I vastly prefer practicing outdoors.

Price is much better too.  $20 for the day, rather than by the hour beats Popguns every time.

I used to shoot there a year or so ago.  According to their site it's now $11 for a 1/2 hr.  Used to be $9 IIRC.  FMJ only, though I did ask about PSP and they did ok it.  Never shot any, but I would contact them prior to using them.  I usually went sometime after 7 at night and there were plenty of lanes open.

I now shoot at Linden Conservation Club (outdoors).  Membership is $50 for the year (I don't think it has changed) though I need to renew mine.

Buy the 10 visit pass.  $65 for 10 visits and you can share it.  No experation date either.  The city forced the daily rate hike to $20, but left the 10 visit and seasonal passes alone, so they are an even better deal than last year.

Clark State Forest Public range, Henryville IN...

Free public range, plus a nice separate range for law enforcement officers.

4 large stationary shooting benches, with berm backstops at about 25 and 35 yards, with a large backstop arching from about 60 yards at the left of the range, to roughly 100 yards at the right side of the range.  You can drive through the forestry if you like driving slowly while looking at trees, but if you pass up the two entrances to the Forestry on hwy 31, take the next road to the left (Brownstown Rd., still locally referred to as Richey Hollow Road) about 4 miles up turn left on Pounds Road (gravel).  Pounds will curve to the right (you'll see a pond dam in front of you as you go to the right) continue straight and the range will be on your left.

No Sunday Shooting

Nothin great IMO, it was cold because of the "State of the art air system," which continuously sucks out air, and refills with new.  The ranges consisted of 2: rifle and pistol.  basic indoor range, dress warm

Update on Waveland Gun Club:

I just talked to Sharon, Tony (owner of gunclub)'s wife.

She said the Waveland Gun Club is still operating, although the store will not be open as much, also they upped the price of the daily rate from $3 to $4, and are now charging $4 per session of skeet shooting to pay for the clays.

Tony's number is:
(seven six five)  three six six - nine seven four five.

They said they've been lately having problems with telemarketers so I wrote it like that so maybe they wont be able to find it, didn't want to be apart of the problem.

Folks in the Evansville area and southern Posey County might want to check out membership at the Mt. Vernon Conservation Club. The range facilities are primitive, but it's a private place to shoot. ( Whenever I shoot there during the week I usually have the place to myself. ) They have 25y, 50y, and 100y backstops, and a couple of picnic tables for benchrests. Also, they have a nice sized lake for fishing.  Dues are quite reasonable at around $35 a year. Everyone I've met there has been very friendly.

Any ideas about ranges in the Greenwood area?
Link Posted: 12/1/2008 2:03:37 AM EDT
Kingsbury fish and wildlife area outside of LaPorte has a nice out door range. Angled concrete slabs cover the firing line and prevent berm jumpers. Usually not to busy, has a range safety officer who enforces safety and cease fire/target changes. Another plus is indoor restrooms onstead of port-a-jon's.

I wish someone would open a range near Bloomington.  It's hard to believe there is nothing worthwhile within 25 miles of here.

Here is a list of the 19 DNR ranges in Indiana, Willow Slough in Newton co. is right near the IN/IL border. A little further over is Kingsbury range in Laporte County it is a state of the art range and my favorite. Do not bring handguns from IL to IN as they do not allow IL residents to use handguns in IN. Sorry, I think its stupid TOO!

Kodiak Firing Range

Not fully up and running yet (no rifle side or shoot house), but the pistol side is finally OPEN!

Range fees are $10/hr or $50/mo for unlimited pistol & rifle/shotgun ranges, and 10% off anything in the store (except alamo & reloading supplies). Frangible lead free is mandatory and prices as of now look like this.

380acp is around $18.00

9mm is about $21.00

40S&W is about $21.50

45acp is around $29.75

I don't remember any other calibers off hand, but wheel gun ammo was on hand as well, up to 44mag. No rifle calibers yet since the moving targets are still roughly 3 weeks out. He will have .223, 7.62x39, and shotgun slugs on hand when the time comes. Gun sales are a while out too. The ammo supplier also is trying to get ahold of some polymer tin frangible bullets vs the copper tin they use now. It will be much cheaper. He fully understands that ammo is the tough part for us to swallow and he is doing everything he can to try to get the costs down. Plus if we elect a REAL conservative to run the country, the strengthening of the dollar will cut the cost of the metals making it more adorable yet.

Unfortunately for me, I work across the street. Now when my wife can't get me to answer the phone, she only needs to call work and have them look out the window for my vehicle.

New to the site, I didn't go through every post but their is a long range spot in wabash at bass and bucks I think it's somewhere between 700-1000 yards long. And another one over by Rochester its called the sand burr gun ranch, they have a great pistol range and 50.75.100 yard rifle ranges. Steel knockdown pistol targets and spinners and last time I was there they even had an abundance of bowling pins. They have a small shop with firearms and ammo for sale. I think they both have websites just google the names and you should find soothing.
