Welcome to the site. However,I'm not real familiar with ranges or gun shops in the Cookville area. Let me Google what I can and I'll get back to ya.

Check out Bend of the River range up there. Here is a link:

Bend of River Range

It is owned/operated by Charlie Pardue which is a local up there that taught/teaches skeet and archery at TN Tech Univ. He's a good guy with a dry sense of humor. Bend of the River has a small range for pistol/rifle as well as a skeet and trap shooting. Charlie also owns Bend of the River Shooting Supplies there in Cookeville:

Good luck syromonkey...I can only think you are probably getting ready to go to TN TECH, my old alma mater.

Have fun and I spent many hours at Bend of the River shooting range. Great place (at least back in the 80's) and I am sure Charlie hasn't changed it much.

Sign up for the ROTC marksmanship class if you have time and they still have it. It was an easy class and they have a .22 range in the stadium (at least they used to)...or sign up for ballroom dancing and meet all the chicas.
