    Indoor or Outdoor Range?

    Going to the range Saturday. My wife like s the fancy pants indoor range (so do I kinda), but my father in law is coming. He's more rustic and may feel outta place indoors. Any thoughts?

    I think you're asking the wrong folks. Ask him what his preference would be.

    As the saying goes around here "If the wife is not happy, the wife is a grouch" or something like that. Which person is more important to keep happy, your father or your wife? Once you figure that out, you will know where to go. Enjoy the trip to the indoor range.

    You're right. If Momma ain't happy, then nobody's happy......

    I like indoor, I feel like I concentrate more on my technique like breathing and trigger control because the atmosphere has a very controlled feel. but if its just for fun outdoor is great!

    Would depend on the weather. If it's nice out then go that way. If cold/wet/windy go the indoor route.

    You say he "may" feel out of place, so then again, he may not. He might like the new experience.
    But I would tell him so he knows what guns to bring and which to leave at home.

    There are no indoor ranges near my current location. My club is outdoors. The only thing I miss about having an indoor range is being able to change targets on the pulley system without shutting down the range.

    Here's the pro's and con's IMO.
    Indoor: Pros, Mechanical targets, clean, no wind.
    Cons, stuffy, short ranges, not enough storage space, noisy.

    Outdoor: Pro, fresh air, more elbow room, longer ranges, a place to set your stuff.
    Cons, hard to set targets, too much down time, wind, no 7 yd. target stands, crabby RO's (maybe)

    Now, if I could find a nice outdoor range with mechanical targets, it would be great.
