If any of you guys are in the Kansas City area, I'm interested in hearing your takes on what would be good shooting ranges to check out. I was more of a casual shooter for some time, and just recently became more active, and the two places I shoot are at the Lake City range in Blue Springs, and down in the country on a relative's property.
My problem is that Lake City is far from an ideal range for CCW purposes...minimum range is 20 yards, and if you shoot more than one shot per 5 seconds they scold you. I like the cleanliness, order, and safety of that range, but I'd like to find something a little more geared to small defensive pistols, not hunting rifles.
Any suggestions? Preferably it would be a place with friendly and safety-conscious staff. I'd want it to be a place that my wife would be willing to go to (again), not a seedy, dingy hole-in-the-wall where the regulars make you feel like an outsider, or something like that. Thanks very much...I look forward to any suggestions you guys have! Barring getting my own place out in the country!
And my location is just south of the stadiums, in the Raytown area.
