    Tell us about your favorite indoor gun range...?

    The Range at Lake Norman just opened less than 2 months ago. Having managed the site selection, zoning, and all aspects of construction of the facility for the owners I'd like to know the following as we are in the process of selecting our next location in the metro area now.

    1) What's the name of your favorite indoor climate controlled (has heat and A/C) range in the U.S.?

    2) Location (city / state)?

    3) Reason(s) you like it?

    4) Along these lines, what would you like to have access to that you don't?

    Thanks for the feedback...want to improve upon what we've done to make it even better!

    Would like to shoot at that National Police Museum Range.

    There's a range North of here a bit, up by Leesburg, that is very clean, spacious, exceptioanally well lit and with plenty of lanes for shooters, so you can always get in. I would like to see them be able to handle 50cal S&W though.
    I'm in favor of gun control -- I think every citizen should have control of a gun.

    it allows us strong side draw

    but for 22 mag we have to keep our ammo subsonic
    we can play class 3 inside

    if there are just us'ens there we can set up informal IDPA forward of the ports

    lots more goodies just downside is the winter brings the cold to the concrete floors.

    its got 9 lanes with o-l-d style cranks to 25 yards.

    we have a goodly number of LEO as members. these peoples tend to be into the shooting sports
    (IDPA, plates & pins, etc) and many of us have fun playing off against them informally.

    with a closed membership there is about a 6 month wait to join.

    When I was in middle school, the class 1 year ahead of me went to Wash. DC. One of the kids parents worked for the FBI and they got a tour at Quantico. The teachers got to try fully auto machine guns on their range.

    I've personally only been to two ranges so my experience is limited. The one has a bench area behind the stalls where you can load magazines and place your supplies. It is also fairly informal in regards to lane selection, which can be nice at least if it isn't too crowded.

    Ultimate defense firing range in St. Peters, MO. Been open just over a year. They have twelve, 25 yd lanes, electronic controlled targets, and a six lane, 7 yd range. Retail center of just about anything gun related you could need, including the guns. Great prices. Huge selection of rental guns. And great selection of classes, from first shots, ladies night, up to tactical level classes. Love this place. Wish it was a bit cheaper per hour to shoot.

    It's not the range so much as the staff and the rules. I've been happy with Springs Road Gun Club in Hickory. The staff rocks and know what they are talking about. Easy to get along with. None of this holier than though I'm the gun guru crap. They replaced a spring on my Glock free of charge, nice. Members can work from the holster, rapid fire, point shoot, and all that. I don't see much use in slowly punching small holes in paper with a carry gun. It's not the newest or best looking range around. But I go there to shoot, not eat off the floor. Membership prices are affordable. I wish they had a better gun rental selection though.

    Jerks behind the counter or counter intuitive rules will ruin even a snazzy new shooting range.

    I live in Indy, 1,000,000+ population and we have two. One in the ghetto, Dons, and one with the rudest people on the planet there, Pop's.

    Raleigh,NC needs a new one,the one near me is cold in the winter and hot in the summer and the ventilation sucks and the lighting is poor. I guess the rates are good at $15.00 an hour.I would like to see a indoor interactive range.

    Bud's Gun Warehouse and Range in Lexington,KY.Well lit,well ventilated,10 25yard lanes.What I'm addicted to is the reactive steel range(one of 4 in country).It's like whack-a-mole with a pistol.

    Vandalia Range & Armory in Dayton, OH. Electronic controlled targets, well lit and most importantly staffed by range officers that aren't shy about making sure everyone is safe. Great all around gun shop and range. I love shooting here.

    Target World in Cincinnati, OH. Awful. No range officers. Frequently come across people without firearm experience renting guns here. Truly dangerous at times.

    Shooters Edge in Piney Flats, TN. State of the art facility with 15 lanes, excellent ventilation, electronic target control,
    guns, ammo, supplies, 5.11 tac equipment, rental guns, and various gun classes weekly. Super friendly staff and instructors and excellent family atmosphere. Wouldn't change a thing there.
