Default Skeet ranges with rentals?

Was wondering if anyone was aware of any skeet ranges that also rent shotguns suited for such? Looking in Connecticut and Massachusetts.

I'm sure there are. The Indiana Gun Club rents guns for skeet and trap. That does you no good but I'm just saying, I'm sure they do out there as well.

According to "Black's Wing & Waterfowl 2014" guide, in Connecticut and Massachusetts clay destinations are listed in my pictures below. Zoom in on them and check them out. Maybe this helps you.

a lot of skeet ranges offer rentals.
i do at my range. free to anyone needing one.

but most conn ranges are members only. matter of fact, i dont know of any public ranges there.
the clubs i did associate with in ct had guns...but for members use only.
if a member brought a potential new member, theyd allow use, but not to a total stranger.
skeet/trap clubs in ct are the kind that you dont just show up unless you are invited....thus whoever invited you would have guns for you to use.
and with sandy hook fresh in the memories up there...dont count on it.
heck, they just passed a law requiring people to have a license to buy ammo in ct. and that means you cant buy it from the club unless you have that license. on top of that, many clubs in conn, wont let you shoot your own ammo and they make you buy theres. catch 22.

I live in Middletown, and the ammo license is only if you don't have a hunting license, pistol permit. I am covered as far as being able to purchase ammo.
