Have to ask....Need to test fire my rifle and was wondering if anyone knew of anyplace within 30-40 miles of Hartford other than Delta.   Never been there...just curious if there was a place I didn't know about.

Anyone have any land.....maybe??

Negative ghost rider, pattern full!

TacticalArms allows rifles up to .308 I believe, you might have to purchase ammo from the range however.

That's a bit of a hike but....To be more specific I want to break in a new SS barrel which will take a little bit of time.  Is this place indoors?  Guess I should of mentioned that would like to be indoors while I break it in.  Keep my fingers warm!

We have an indoor range but no rifles other then .22lr

We enclose the outdoor range bench area in the winter but there isn't heat. 200 yards though

There is an idea also.  I guess I am not getting much closer than Academi or Delta.

I would love to just go shoot the thing....but I am going to follow barrel mfg's breakin instructions.   Pain in the ass.

Try Highrock in Naugatuck.  100 yard outdoor range.  Should be within your specified driving distance.

what kind of rifle are you looking to test/break in?  I think Academi only allows up to 5.56

Yea...that's what I thought.  We used to be able to target shoot in some of the big sandpits up there.  Once had the MDC drive by us and check out our weapons.

I will have to call.  Judging by their web site...it sure implies the range is open.
Link Posted: 1/29/2014 6:05:05 AM EDT
Yes, call before you go. I was there on Monday and it wasn't finished/open yet. The pistol range is open.

Really...you wouldn't know it by looking at their website.  Nothing about it not being open yet.
Link Posted: 1/29/2014 6:17:00 AM EDT
I know, just call first so you don't waste time driving down there.
Link Posted: 1/29/2014 6:19:59 AM EDT
thanx....that would of been my luck.
