Default Listing a place to shoot

Without a place to shoot, a gun may be a good paperweight. Would like to suggest that if you have a good place to shoot, you post it here. Will start the ball rolling with a couple-
Colorado- used to be a member of the Ben Lomond Gun Club. Membership fees reasonable, they are the State Rifle Assoc, and have a 500 acre range out near Kiowa, CO. Run a google search on their name.

Virginia- Public- Dept of Game and Inland Fisheries- Wildlife Management Area ranges- Free. Check the state website, not all WMA's have ranges. Some are rifle shotgun only (no pistols) max 100 yds, open only part of the year.

Virginia- Private- I belong to Black Creek Shooters Assoc. Located about 10 miles from Richmond VA airport. Dues $100/yr. Open 7 days/week. 4 ranges, rifle, pistol, shotgun (full auto allowed one day/week) max 100 yds. On site gunsmith. Covered bench rests, trap shooting. No tracer or exploding ammo (fire hazard) Bring your own ammo/ targets. Family friendly (Granddaughter is an associate member- $15/ yr, or $5/day for guest accompanied by member)

So- whatcha got where you live?

Only America's largest public range! Once build out is complete that is....

Oh, and shooting in the open desert.

There are a bunch of ranges around, but I shoot at the Genesee Conservation League. It's a pretty nice place, but the fees are a little high. A buddy is trying to get me to join Four Point Gun Club, but right now, it's mostly trap and skeet, and I'm looking for a rifle range.

What would be extremely good to know is where you can legally shoot on public land.

The Missouri Conservation Dept . has several free unmanned ranges on the public land it controls and some manned that you must pay a hourly fee to shoot at .

August A. Bush Memorial and Antire road are the 2 manned ones I know of , William R. Logan , Reifsneider , and Deer Run have unmanned + many others , you can go to the website and look at area Regs and services available as well as Dload and print out the maps .

You can also call them and request a copy of the "Discover Missouri Outdoors" Map and it is 100% free . It Lists areas for boating , fishing , hunting , hiking , camping etc. etc .

Call or visit your local BLM or Forest Service office.
