    I'm thinking of a membership at one of these clubs, not sure which one yet. I haven't looked at membership dues or anything, I am more concerned with facilities and events. Both are about equal distance from me.

    If you could pick just one, which one would you pick and why?

    I know the buffalo range is another option but I really want something longer than 100 yards.

    I've been a member at ASC for 2 years. They are more expensive because of the monthly assessment to pay back their loans. I did like the range. I now belong to ISRA's, mainly because I'm on the board and they are much cheaper. Oh...they have roofs over the shooters giving you shade!

    Thanks for the input. I am going to check out the ISRA on the 22nd for their NRA open house event, barring any emergencies at work.

    The ASC 600 yard line excites me and learning that the dues are high because they are paying back loans also makes sense and is encouraging that they'll go down one day.

    Still no decisions. Looking at google maps the Racine WI club is possibly the closest but their website sucks! Can't even find out about their facilities etc...

    I belong to the ISRA range and would challenge anyone to find me a better outdoor range anywhere in the Midwest for shooting rifles and pistols.
    I can shoot on the rainiest days under cover and remain dry and comfortable.

    The only challenge I can make is the limited 300 yard rifle range at ISRA. That is perhaps the one thing keeping me from signing up. I really would like to practice shooting at distance.
