Sorry, new to boards (see post count), but is this range still open? The reason I ask is that its not listed on the Georgia DNR website as a WMA with a gun range. And I see that is been over a year since anyone has touched this thread. One of the biggest hurdles for me from buying a AR15 is wondering where in the world I could shoot it within a reasonable distance from where I live (downtown/midtown) Atlanta. Is this the closest 100 yard range from me? Thanks guys.

Look under the Cybel WMA,Charlie Elliot range.
Depending on what part of Downtown,it may be the closest free place to shoot.

Anyone else shoot at Wilson Shoals and also Charlie Elliot? Which do you prefer?

Yes, I agree with your Wilson Shoals points. I've had the same thoughts. I guess Ill have to drive down to CE and check it out.

Any other regulations besides the low targets that are being enforced aggresively?

Here are the rulez. They may have changed since I took the pic, but it is a good start, at least.

Yep, they have. The new sign is a perty yellow, it also mentions that .50cal + is NOT allowed, rat bastards.

Beats not being able to shoot anywhere though, gotta like it for that (and the free brass if you beat me there)

btw, hey byte, book, dubbleaught, et al., long time!

(hoooooters, shhhh!)

gilfrd, howdy! Are you gonna make it to the shoot? What have you been up to?

I will try to remember to get an up-to date pic of the 'Rules' this shoot.

Definately making this one, its been tooo long since I've pulled a trigger on anything besides plinking .22's at home.

I've been totally immersed in this InfoSec stuff, learning too much for this old brain, I'm getting cramps.

Some day (maybe) I'll actually know what I'm doing, that'll even scare me!

This is the Hwy 11/Social Circle exit - correct?
Then take Hwy 11 south to Mansfield - Yes?

Thanks ~

You all better have your hunter's safety card. When did they add that?

Not a problem if you were born before 01/01/1961

Will a Louisiana Hunter Safety card suffice? Would it help that I was an instructor also?

Never had one, they have never axed. They better not start anytime soon.

Maybe the new rules don't have that on it.

I pulled this off of the Georgia DNR website Here

It is specific to Charles Elliot Range. No license required.


Two shooting ranges (50- & 100-yard) offer recreational shooters a chance to take aim! No license or fee is required for using the range complex. However, this area is not staffed, and we strongly encourage visitors to read the posted range rules. You must bring your own eye and ear protection, targets and target stands. The target should be high enough for the round to strike the backstop berm and not the ground, thereby reducing the chance of it skipping off and escaping the range. You must remove all of your trash before leaving the range complex, including spent brass and used targets. Shooting Range hours are Monday - Saturday from 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. Plans for building your own target stands are available at the Visitor's Center, or you may purchase a target stand from our Gift Gallery. All range rules are strictly enforced. A minimum $250 fine is imposed for shooting outside range operating hours.
