My local indoor range charges $24 an hour or $18 for a half hour. This can get expensive. I thought I would join a fish and game club or private range to combat this cost but around here the can run $500-$600 a year and you usually have to get a sponsor just to get in. Plus you could factor in gas because these places are usually out in the boonies. This shooting isn't a very cheap hobby.

I pay a flat $125 per year. I use my own ammo and the targets are 35 cents each. Its a card lock indoor 50 foot range for handgun shooting. You can use 22 LR rifles if you want. No mags.

Wolfs does have an annual fee option, somewhere around $300, shoot whenever you want and for as long as you want, as long as it does not interfere with a class.

Sportsman's Lodge is a $10 range fee for all day. No memberships, pistol calibers and .22lr only 25 yard indoor.

Flatwoods is 15 a day, but has rifle @ 200m, Pistol @ 50m, and skeet. But they are range nazies.

They have no pits to pull targets in, so you put your targets up when they are cold, and have to wait till they go cold again to go down range, Same with pistol and skeet. If the range is hot you can not move off the range to leave. It is a fifteen foot walk from there to the parking lot, and you have to be escorted to and from while the range is cold.

They just dumped one stupid rule they had. It used to be if you did not use their ammo, you had to pay $30 to shoot, and they did not let you keep your brass. And still, if you are using their ammo (which you obviously have to pay for) you have to turn the brass back into them before you go.

Caswell's is about $380 or so I want to say (wife paid it, so I don't remember exactly) for a year for a family membership.

You can shoot your own ammo, and you can pick up brass (they ask that you ask the RSO, who can help sweep it to a "safe" location to pick it up from), but you have to use their targets. It's indoor, 20 yards, and has motorized target holders, so you don't have to wait for range hot / cold. It's about a 15 minute drive from my house.

They rent guns, but members can use them free- you just have to buy their ammo to shoot through them. They say it's because they don't want "cheap" ammo to ruin their guns, but they sell Magtech, so...

Get 25% off on range ammo, and 10% off on most other items in the store, including guns. Plus, you get to buy one gun at cost for each yearly fee.

The indoor rangs where I shoot it $16 for the pistol and $21 for 100yd rifle. As long as there is not a line, I can basically stay as long as I want. The only restrictions is no full lead bullets and no AP.

$100 a year, and it's darn well worth it. Two ranges, the closest one is two miles away! How can I not shoot once a week? And club matches? Oh man! And a GSSF match to boot! Every year!

I'm going to be checking out a new outdoor range about 10-15 miles from my office and 20 miles from my house.

Hopefully they have good membership :D

Best Range I've been to

If you are in the Dallas Area "Garland Public Shooting Range" or if you are in Austin "Eagle Peak Public Shooting Range" both are owned by the same guy and have the same set up

1st. $10 Membership Fee good for a lifetime. If you lose the card, you pay $1.50 they will even laminate it for you

2nd. $10 to shoot for the day...sop even if you go home come back and do it again and you only have to pay 10 dollars for the whole day.

3rd. The staff is armed. I dont know why, but that makes me feel better.



4.You can rent rifles (Ar-15's, .22's and a AK knock off) pistols (Beat up 9mm and 45, and a .38 Wheel Gun)

5. You can bring your own Ammo and any gun you want. ANYGUN.

They have a Rifle Range, and a Pistol Range, and a skeet shooting range.

Every 30 or so minutes they call everyone off the range make them wait behind a yellow line, with their weapons unloaded and "open". you can then attach any target you want to your lane. you can move around at you leisure. So you can switch from Pistol to range with little more than moving your Membership card. THey also have sandbags and spotters.
The staff knows their stuff.

The only down side. 1 shot ever second. So you cant unload as fast as possible or do speed draw.

They also were very helpfull and polite when it came to my many many many questions. They also showed me how to fire an AR-15 and didnt make fun of me for jamming the whole damn thing up every 10 seconds
