    Place(s) to shoot near Philadelphia

    I'm travelling in the area for work and was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to pick up some .40 and .380 (don't laugh) ammo and a place I could put it through my PPS and P3AT this coming weekend?

    I checked out a couple places online but many seem to want memberships or get bad reviews of the way non-members were treated.

    Any help is welcome. Thanks in advance.

    From what I have read about Philly within these threads, just about any bar or street in the downtown area...

    I'm sure that many other locals famaliar with the area will chime in with accurate info...have fun and stay alert.

    LOL! I was gonna say when you step out of your car. I've been to Philadelphia, PA actually. I've touched the liberty bell.

    Your question was slightly unclear if you actually meant "near" or "in" Phila.

    I know there is a range within Phila somewhere near the Italian Market area--e.g., somewhere around 11th and Christian +/- a few blocks in either direction, but I don't know the precise address or the name.

    If I find out I'll send that to you by private message.

    Colisomo's is in Philly.

    Near Philly you have Target Masters in Chadds Ford, French Creek Outfitters in Phoenixville, Double Action in Landsdowne...

    Better yet, here's a list of ranges by county in PA.

    Anything in the following counties is pretty close (by my standards) Philly, Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware and Chester.

    I liked French Creek Outfitters and Target Masters. You can also shoot at the Sate Game Lands Range just up the road from French Creek Outfitters.

    Try to stay away from the front of the local Fox channel building.

    There are three (that I know of) public, indoor, ranges in Bucks County, just outside Philly.
    Pistol People, in Croydon.

    Yes, that's the place I had in mind. Their web site has a great map showing the location.

    Thanks all for the info. I'm on the UPenn campus, edge of West Philly. I've got my truck here, so I could get to some suburban or outlying areas, too.

    If it makes a difference you can rent FULL AUTO at targetmasters. Definitely cool.
