    Just thought I'd see where you guys go to zero in, or shoot to make some noise. Only place I've been is Wildmarsh but it's closed until April 4th and I've got 5 guns to try :headache:.

    I've heard from a coworker that Bill's is OK but expensive, and they wont let you use steel cased rounds.

    I would say from looking at that list MOST are outdoor ranges. Some that I have been to are nothing more than a field with a few benches and a hill to shoot into.
    Not unlike what you do Garbageman.

    For Indoor ranges I use Bills and BPR. I like both. There is another near Blaine called something like Armorfire. That one is good as well.

    For outdoor though it would be hard to beat Oakdale Gun Club. You can see it at www.oakdalegunclub.org. They have very nice covered shooting ranges. Outdoor but nicely maintained and good range officers. They have starting from the left airgun range.
    Shotgun range with 2 manual and 1 electric clay throwers.
    The competition range with a 50 and a 25 range. The 100 yard range. The 50 range. The 250 range. The 25 range. The archery range and the boy scout trails.
    $15 bucks as many firearms as you like and all day if you desire.
    This is where I go the most. Being outdoor they are closed in the winter.

    ST - I think you mean steel bullets not steel cased ammo, the steel case has nothing to do with the backstop but a steel bullet will damage them.

    CMC - Bill's bought armor fire, & years ago they allowed high powered rifles I think anything under .50 caliber. at that location.


    if you become a member to certain gun ranges you can go shoot anytime of the year, as long as in normal shooting hours. most times you could be the only person there, which is nice sometimes.

    I have gone shooting at Bill's and that's where I test fired my SkS when I was done cleaning it. So you CAN shoot a 7.62x39, but I dont know about the 54r. I myself have been looking for a place that will let you shoot there "for free", but haven't had any luck last time I looked.

    P.S.

    Supertoaster- how long is the drive to Wildmarsh and does it cost anything to use the range? Burning gas would be cheaper than burning money for indoor range usage.

    $10 per person to shoot til they close with as many guns as your vehicle can hold and they don't care if you have steel, brass or aluminum cases. its about 45 min I think from here but they arnt open til the 4th of April.

    ST - wheres wildmarsh ?

    ST & SKS - like I said
    " if you become a member to certain gun ranges you can go shoot anytime of the year, as long as in normal shooting hours. most times you could be the only person there, which is nice sometimes. "

    that includes wintertime, some places just give you the combo or remote for gate once a member. shoot as long as you want, as many guns you want, & no range fee cuz you're a member.
    call some clubs & become a member! I've seen bills prices for range time is crazy & then times you might be limited for time given cuz of others there.
