    I belong to a local gun club and I love it...sooooo much better than any of our local indoor ranges.

    Here's some pictures...

    Lead can be very dangerous, especially for kids and pregnant women and they should not go to indoor ranges. I don't even like going to indoor ranges myself and prefer to shoot outside.
    Seems like the manager blatantly ignored prior warnings...
    This article says it's the "Bluegrass Indoor Range"

    When I go to their website, they claim they have HEPA air filters and they also show several police cars outside (assuming they want to show who their customers are). As of today they don't say it's closed...

    Hey Hubs...Palmetto Gun Club. The range is on the west side of Summerville, off of Hwy 61 not far past Legend Oaks.

    Man, I feel for you guys paying those wacky prices. I'm a member of Gateway Rifle And Pistol Club here In Jacksonville and pay 112.00 a year which covers my wife, me and any kids under 18. The daily fees for non members are 15.00 all day.

    It's an outdoor facility with clubhouse, a 200 yard rifle range, several shorter rifle and shotty ranges, skeet, a few lane pistol ranges covering several distances and my favorite, the five "all purpose" ranges where members only can do anything from shooting on the move, drawing, multiples, one foot to 25 yards and almost any scenario you can imagine...it's a shooter's paradise!

    I feel for you guys paying to use a Range.

    If I don't use the agency Range, or one when I'm taking a class, I just go shoot in the desert. I've got a couple of spots that let me shoot out to 100 Yards unobstructed, and safe!

    By not using a square range I'm able to do things like shooting on the move, prone, behind cover shooting, and various other things that a square range won't let you do. The only bad thing is, I have to transport my Target Stands to and fro'. Some of you may want to look at meeting with a farmer or other private landowner and see about building a range more suitable to your desires. One of my friends did that with a local rancher, and only him and others in his agency have the key. It makes for a nice, more controlled, atmosphere and non agency people are by invite only.
