I just recently registered here, and was surprised to see so much activity in the MI forum, considering how dead the AK-47.net one always is...
Anyone here on Michigan's west side? I'm in Kalamazoo, and with gas prices where they are, it's getting a little expensive to drive to Shooter's Corral in Eaton Rapids. I shoot handguns at Silver Bullet in Grand Rapids, but that joint obviously leaves a lot to be desired when you want to shoot a long gun...
Where do you guys shoot rifles out here? I'd prefer a public, pay-as-you-go range, but the price of a membership is starting to look competitive with the price of driving an hour each way to shoot.
I've got a few cases of 5.45 and .308 that are screaming to be shot....
Southkent Sportsmans Club. It's in Dorr, about half way between GR and Kzoo. 500 meter rifle range, a bunch of 25 yard pistol ranges (you get to shoot fast and shoot on the move) and a 200 meter pistol/rifle range.
The rifle range has burms at 200m, 300m, 400m and 500m. The 200m pistol/rifle range has burms at 50, 100, 150 and 200. I pay $100 a year. www.sksc.org
Southern Michigan Gun Club off of KL Ave in Kalamazoo. 55 bucks a year to be a member but I am thinking of letting my membership expire. You can only shot when there is a range officer around.HereEvery Tuesday September: 10 AM - 6 PM

Friday September 23rd: 1:00 PM - 6 PM
Friday September 16th: 10:00 AM - 6 PM

Plus there is only a 50 & 100 yard ranges for rifles.
Basically you can only shoot when they want you too but you never really can because it is to busy to get any time in.
I am lucky enough to have a family farm to go and shoot on, but when there are pit shoot/clean ups I will travel to Lapeer to shoot. I live in BattleCreek so if a carpool to the pit sounds good to anyone for the next shoot/clean up just lemme know.
