    If you go to a range, which one is your favorite, and what do you like about it?

    im close enough to hop the border and shoot in bristol wi. it sucks when a group of us go and it is almost 150 for all 5 of us. but between the all the guns and ammo that come, the 30 a person the entire day isnt too bad. i havent found a better range that will accommodate for shot guns with slugs. that is within 35 min drive from me.

    I shoot at three ranges but my favorite is the Red Brush range in SW Indiana because it is kept up very well it is always clean & most of the time there is an open bench to shoot from.

    Usually Vandalia Range and Armory or Miami Valley Shooting Grounds. Both have their advantages.

    Around here, commercial ranges are too expensive and too demanding of the time of the members. The unsupervised "public" ranges are too dangerous. I pushed down some trees and brush, built a berm and laid out a 150 yard range in my back yard.
