There's Blue and Grey out at the Guntersville Dam, Sharon Johnson Park out near New Market, but I don't think they allow rifles, there's a range in Hartselle don't know much about it, Arab Practical Pistol range, you used to be able to shoot about a 100 yards.

That's the ones I know about.

Welcome! I live in Huntsville and work in Madison. I too shoot out at Swan Creek on my lunch break! I recently joined the Sharon Johnston range (pistol and 22 rifle, skeet) and will be joining Blue & Gray next month. I also shoot at a private range north of town. Give me a shout if you want to meet up and blow up some stuff sometime!

Close to Huntsville, interesting outdoor range in Arab, host to the local IDPA matches, and they don't have a lot of overly strict range rules and restrictions since it's oriented to action shooting shooting sports instead of bullseye stuff. Another range in Hartselle that I have not visited, but has a good reputation.

Where is that range in Hartselle? Is it the one belonging to the Hartselle Gun Club out at Florette?

Thanks for the map to the Arab location; I have heard that there was such a place for some time, but did not know where. I will check it out!

I joined the Arab Practical Shooters Club last year, but finances are holding me back this time. It is located at an old rock quary, on the West side of 231 between Arab and Morgan City. It's down in a valley. There is a cattle gate with a well marked sign. If the gate is open, you can drive on down and talk to someone who is there. The cost is $40/year and you can bring one friend along. I can give you an e-mail contact if you PM me, or you can pick up their applicaiton at any of the local pawn shops.

I think their IDPA matches are the first Saturday of every month and they usually finish up by lunch time.
