I just got back from the new range just SE of Nashville. It opened this morning. I was there when the first shot was fired. I didn't do any shooting today just hung out and talked and checked it out. It is REALLY nice. It looks like it will handle about 45 people at the 3 different target distances. It costs $4 for 2 hours or you can get a yearly membership. I am going shooting there tomorrow.

It's on Hobson Pike. If you're going out Hobson Pike towards Mt. Juliet it's on the right before you get to the bridge across the lake. I'm headed out there now. I'll see if I can get a phone #.

Just got back from the new range. It is really nice. We shot a couple hundred rounds thru the 45, a couple of hundred thru the 38, and about a hundred thru the mini-14. The range officers are nice guys. They let you shoot for 15 minutes then the range goes cold for 10 minutes. This lets you change your target and pick up your brass. They give you 2 targets when you pay your fee. The range will handle about 100 people and it wasn't a third full. They want you to keep up with how many rounds you shoot in each caliber so they know how much lead is in the berms. The only problem I saw was they were slow as crap checking people in. We waited probably 30 minutes and there was only 5 people in front of us. This will probably get better after they get the procedure down. If you go be sure to have some kind of ID. They require it. This place is really nice. Middle Tennessee is very lucky to have something like this.

What are the rules down there? Are they C3 friendly? How about 50 cals? Maximum range? Just curious if they are catering to the Remington crowd or if everyone is invited to play.

When we left there was a guy shooting a fully automatic on the rifle range. Max range is 200 yards. The RO I talked to said you can shoot anything but bazookas, so I guess a 50 cal will be OK. Not sure on the time and days open. I will try to find out and post them.

I spotted the range and was interested in checking it out. I guess I will have to spend some time and ammo there....

The new range is open only on Fri/Sat/Sun. Fri/Sat is 10am to dark, Sun is 1pm to dark.

Full auto is allowed, shotguns are not as they blast bigassed holes in the target backing.

Cost is $4.50 per adult for two hours. Time is kept kinda loosely, no one is gonna hammer you for an extra 15 minutes.

HUGE crown yesterday & today. Lots of muzzleloaders since their season is coming up quick.

I worked as a RSO today for the first time at this range. Pretty fun, no real problems.

Saw some terrible shooters though.
