Default 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.

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

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

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.

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.
