    Local ranges

    Larrys pistol and pawn on north parkway has an indoor range.

    Arab Practical Shooting Club on 231 north of Arab has a club range --- http://apsc1.us/.

    There is a nice range on the wildlife management area in skyline.

    What are Skyline and Swan Creek like? I've been meaning to hit one or the other for a while now to get some rifle practice in.

    Swan Creek has separate 25, 50, and two 100 yard ranges. All four ranges have shooting benches. The 25, 50 and one of the 100 yard ranges are covered.

    The 200 yard range at Skyline is set up to shoot either 100 or 200 yards. The second range at Skyline is set up to shoot either 25 or 50 yards.

    Athens here, swan creek is closed for duck season, and I despise Larry's so I won't be shooting until spring

    They were extremely rude to me, I asked a simple question and the guy snapped at me and started giving me reasons by he couldn't answer my question with a attitude. He pissed me off and I said thanks and walked out vowing to myself that id never come back.

    That's unusual. They have always been polite and helpful to me.

    They don't have terrible prices, but I just don't want to support their business, that doesn't mean I won't go just to look around just not buy anything.
