Default Where do you shoot?

If you go to a range, which one is your favorite, and what do you like about it?

im close enough to hop the border and shoot in bristol wi. it sucks when a group of us go and it is almost 150 for all 5 of us. but between the all the guns and ammo that come, the 30 a person the entire day isnt too bad. i havent found a better range that will accommodate for shot guns with slugs. that is within 35 min drive from me.

I'm a member at a local range it's 100 dollars per year and 7.00 when I go and can bring as many weapons as I want and 2.50 per extra person I think it's a good deal there's also an outdoor range I go for skeet 10 dollars a gun that's it

I shoot at three ranges but my favorite is the Red Brush range in SW Indiana because it is kept up very well it is always clean & most of the time there is an open bench to shoot from.
