A rarity here though. In fact I only know of one in this country - the HQ of the Sporting Shooters Association of Aust...and its more like a range with a gun shop tacked onto it, rather than the other way round. And you can't use the range for 'trying out' possible purchases, as you must have any gun used there already registered to your ownership.
Its a great idea, and one I wish we could have; its unfortunate I must buy a firearm without necessarily being able to test it out that make/model first.
