Wow - I feel bad for all you guys. There's a local range here with indoor and outdoor firearms ranges, indoor and outdoor archery ranges, skeet and trap rangers, a fishing pond, etc for $110 a year. You can become a lifetime member for $1500... You can take a gust on for $5 a day.

I'm going to sign up at some point. I think the rates actually went up since I took some classes there. In March of last year, a lifetime membership was only $750...

Although normally I just shoot on private land and avoid the cost of ranges all together.

PA also offers public free ranges throughout the state in state owned game lands. I've used the closest one to me once before.

The club I belong to charges dues of $150 a year. When I joined in 1984 it was only $40 a year. Since the EPA forced the club to stop using lead shot on the skeet and trap ranges several years ago, I hardly even go there anymore.
(I refuse to shoot steel in my mid 80's model fixed-choke Citori)
I think I only went 3 or 4 times last year, but I do most of my shooting up at my camp in NH now anyway. However, it's necessary that I maintain my club membership because the local PD here won't renew a pistol permit unless you can prove valid membership at a state recognized gun club.

$250 first year, about $150 every year after. Guests are free, no limit on the number you bring, but only two can shoot at a time. Outdoor 200yd rifle range, two outdoor pistol ranges, indoor 50yd low-velocity pistol/rifle range (handgun rounds only), archery range.

True... I'm only 24 and I don't plan on dying anytime soon though... $110 a year vs $1500 (or the $750 it was last year) would've been NOTHING compared to paying yearly and being a member for 50 years.

The range I was going to charged a $20 day pass.

So I joined the club today.. $540 - per year ($150 start up fee)

I know that is a little high, but the range is only one mile grom my home.
I just want to know what thr range memberships go for through out the country......
That's pretty high.

However, if it's an excellent range and the high price keeps the "riff-raff" out, it'll probably be worth it. Especially considering how close it is to your home.

With gas at over three bucks a gallon, you definitely want a place that's close. You might find a cheaper range farther away, but end up actually paying more money over the course of a year because of having to drive farther.
