    There is an indoor range fairly convenient to me that I have only visited once, for I find it claustrophobic and poorly ventilated.
    I prefer to drive 35 miles into the neighboring state to a range maintained by the South Carolina Department of Forestry.
    It is absolutely free to the public and is open 365 days per year from dawn until dusk.
    The nice, overhead canopy protected us from the rain, shooting on Christmas day.

    I used to belong to a club about 10 minutes away, but the attitudes of the majority of "regulars" were enough to make me not renew my membership. I belong to another club about an hour away that I go to whenever I have a day or two free. I'm the only one that uses the lodge outside of the first two or three days of deer season and a few get togethers over the year, and there is a single 50 yd lane right behind the building, and an old slate pit that we use for skeet a bit down the road.

    I drive 10 miles up the road from my house and im on a back road in the national forest. No one around to bother me, and I can shoot what ever I want for as long as I want.

    About 20 miles each way to get me to the NRA HQ Range in northern Virginia from Arlington, VA.

    Small private outdoor range 15 mins away, not the best by any stretch. We have no indoor ranges in N.E. Wisconsin. Perhaps now since we have regained our rights someone will open one!!

    I belong to a private outdoor club that has 25, 100, 500, and 600 yard ranges. It also has (3) trap/skeet fields and a small archery area. We can shoot anything including full auto, 50 cal (next year). It's about 15-20 minutes from my home. It gets pretty darn cold shooting there in winter, very windy right along the lake, Lake Michigan that is. Also, it can be a real bear getting in to when the snow gets deep enough as it's back off the main drag quite a distance.

    There's an indoor range about 2 miles straight west of my outdoor range that I just started going to, well ventilated, but crowded as it's the only indoor range locally. $12/hour, no rounds that exceed 2000 ft/sec, no S&W 460/500's as their backstops can't handle it. I hadn't shot at an indoor range for probably 9-10 years until last week, it's nowhere near as much fun as outdoors.
