Looking for a range - Champaign Illinois
 
Anybody live in or near Champaign/Urbana that would know of a place to shoot? 9mm & .45 acp are the only two i'd be shooting.

A google search for my area has, with no surprise, only returned gibberish and dead end results.

Illinois Public Shooting Ranges
Best I could come up with on a quick search.

thanks for looking :) unfortunately, all of those locations are a good 45 minutes from where I live...if im going to drive that far, there's a place I can shoot for free :p

but was hoping maybe someone in this area heard of something much closer...doesn't surprise me though - Champaign/Urbana is notorious for not having anything to do :)

I'm also looking for a place here in the CU area where I can shoot my AR and hunting rifle. Let me know if u find something!

It's the "old" RCS or RSC Equipment Rental building just west of Peterbilt off Rt 45. Time line will depend on zoning change, license transfer, range construction, and making the building secure for the gun shop. Action Target is waiting for our order and we hope to at least have the shop open in 2-3 months if the zoning goes our way.

Oh yeah, 10 25yd lanes with 4-5 rated high power rifle.

Hopefully soon , Im half way between Champ and Bloomington . I do alot of shooting in the country but it really sucks in the winter

Wow, no offense, but I am glad I don't live in your neck of the woods. A search on NSSF's website revealed only one range within 30 miles and it requires membership: http://lfsc.net/

May be time to contact the NRA and start one of your own. ;)
