My membership is due at my local range and I got to thinking, who else actually has to pay to shoot? Us folks out here in the east dont have a lot of public places to shoot, so we have to get memberships at ranges...which completely sucks. The nearest National Forests to me are 5+ hours by truck....a little far for an afternoon of shooting. My buddies out west just shoot in the back yard, or go out into the mountains....out here there isnt anywhere open enough to just go target shoot. PA used to have a public range nearby but it was closed down last year. Looks like I have to drop another $200 if I want to have a regular place to shoot near home.

There is a guy with a farm the next town over...he will let folks shoot on his property for $10 a day. He set up a nice 100 yard range...does a good business. I like that place in the summer, but I still cant get past having to pay just to target shoot

$10 a year, plus $10 more everytime I go shoot.

$50/yr membership and $2 per visit to the range.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:41:39 PM EDT
It depends on how much I want pay myself to shoot at my range.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:42:10 PM EDT
$55 per year and $1 each time I go.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:42:33 PM EDT
Ten bucks per shoot or I go to the forest for the price of the gas to get there. Not as much fun but cheaper.

It really is tough in the East. But it isn't too expensive for me.

One range is only $25 a year for membership and $3 every time to go shooting. You leave the money in a locked box on the honor system. It's 40 minutes away so I rarely go shooting there. I want to help support them though.

Second range is only 8 minutes from my house for $55 a year, all you can shoot. I was there today after work to shoot my Mosin-Nagant M-44.

I also shoot at a private sand pit for free (ETA only 10 minutes away). It has a locked gate but they gave me a key. The sand berms keep changing because it belongs to a private contracting company and they keep taking sand away.

Best thing to do is support gun ranges so they stay open.

$7 indoor with LE discount (or $12 when some clown is running the desk) and $15 for outdoor. They raised the damn rates from $10!

Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:49:58 PM EDT
$60 a year. Not bad for the amount of shooting I do.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:50:25 PM EDT
$150 a year at the Scarborough Fish and Game. But it's well worth it here. because of all the ranges we have, 50, 100, and 100-400 yard range. They are putting in a 600 yard before this summer!

Our 25 yard pistol range is a walk up range so we can shoot advancing to the target.

Only range close to me costs 350 a year 100 yrds only. F that huh
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:54:09 PM EDT
$30 a year for the outdoor range we go to



i dont remember how much it is for indoor time--i dont go there often and hubby always pays
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:54:13 PM EDT
Depending where I go either $5/day or for free at the county run range, I guess I pay for the free range in taxes.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:54:49 PM EDT
$43 per year.

Been telling the range master that I need to renew since back in July. He keeps telling me "later."
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:56:13 PM EDT
$60 per year. Nothing more.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:56:40 PM EDT
Free to shoot at the State owned range. $15 a year membership to the club that maintains it.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 2:56:49 PM EDT
NRA range is like $250/year
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 3:00:53 PM EDT
None, my restaurant has a range upstairs next door that I can shoot all I went when I want
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 3:02:18 PM EDT
Was $100 a year at the club in town, now upto $150 a year.

Shooting on weekends in the winter there sucks. Usually so many people I just turn around and go home.
In the summer, it's much better as days are longer, so range time after work is a possibility most nights.



Link Posted: 2/24/2006 3:03:36 PM EDT
$0.00. Just the gas I burn driving around killin' wild animals.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:40:41 PM EDT
$20/yr. And it's pretty convenient as it's only 4 miles from the house. Only bad thing is there's no skeet range, but to shoot that, the DNR range (free) is only 15 minutes away.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:44:14 PM EDT
20 Bucks a Day , out doors . Great Pit. 100 yrd yard range, shot gun stations, pistol too.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:48:11 PM EDT
$7.00m a day at the two indoor 25M ranges I go to. Free at either of the ranges my employer contracts with. 2hr drive to shoot for free on Cali state land or BLM land.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:51:35 PM EDT
$25 a year.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 4:51:59 PM EDT
$20 a year, combination to the gate, go whenever you want, rifle pistol and trap.

SRM
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 5:19:14 PM EDT
$4.50/hour. Not too bad since I am rarely there more than two hours any time I visit so I usually pay about 6 bucks a trip.

$40 a year,gets me a CMP affiliate club with 3 indoor 24/7 ranges, rifle to 200,archery with walk through, sporting clays with 3 trap houses. Actually it gets me the rifle and pistol ranges because that's all I shoot but the rest is an option.Macro, where are you, maybe we can hook up. Took me 3 years and 3 clubs to find a good one, they're going away slowly.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:15:33 PM EDT
10 bucks usually, but free when I'm on my land...
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:16:36 PM EDT
For a sit down at the bench range, it's $4 a day. Here is a picture of the range:


Most of the time we just go down to the river bottoms and shoot fer nuthin like we did yesterday.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:16:42 PM EDT
$0 - I will NEVER shoot at a range, all BLM/Forest Service land for me.

Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:20:48 PM EDT
The UK range where I am a member is only 50m. Mostly used by the Blackpowder "charcoal burners" and the 22lr guys but we have acces to the local Brecon military ranges also for an extra fee per day.1000yrd+

Club membership here is £70 per annum
Shoot any day/any time/any amount ..no extra fee

It is located in a lovely secluded valley and the backstop is a mountain.
Here's a pic of jasondcrum shooting my AR on our range last time he visted Wales from sunny Texas.



Cheers
Taffy

Is it just me.....or does anyone else cringe when they see pics of people shooting on ranges covered in a 2 inch thick layer of shells and shotgun cartridges?....do these people have no respect for thier ranges?
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:30:49 PM EDT
$30/ year unlimited use usually have the range to myself....
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:42:10 PM EDT
$0 - Public range in Florida courtesy of the Pittman-Robertson Act (PR).
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:48:38 PM EDT
0.00

Pennsylvania State Game Lands range on Rt6. Sucks with a 3 shot rule in rifles, 6 in handguns, but it's got benches and 25/50/100yds. Good for basic marksmanship practice at a known distance.

Also shoot at NY State Multi-Use Land. Just a small backstop in the woods, that's my plinking/blasting range.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 6:57:13 PM EDT
Nothing.

I have a 100 yard range at my house.

When I want to shoot longer, one of my buddies has a 600 yard range at his house.
Link Posted: 2/24/2006 7:00:22 PM EDT
$7.40 shoot all day, plus $6/round for skeet or trap
