    Yes. My dues are $55.00 per year and you must be an NRA member to join. The range is exactly 5 miles from my house. It isn't fancy but certainly serves the purpose.

    $60 per year, + 2 work days and 2 meetings per year. 8 outdoor pistol ranges, trap/shotgun area, 200 yard rifle range, and archery. During winter there are some indoor range shooting nights available. Best part is its on my way to and from work and only 6 miles away from home.

    $10 per year for family membership. Crude, but effective open range on 40+ acres into a hillside. Range is 45 minutes from my home. 400 yard rifle range w/ 5 bench rests, pistol & trap. Holsters and CCW/Duty draw allowed. Self-policing and no Brady-bunch poster children allowed!

    Well if you count taxes as dues then i pay a hell of a lot ( close to 15k between me and my stepdad ) . But then my range runs to thousands of acres too lol .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    My local gun club is only 6 miles from my house and has about 8 pistol berms, 2 rifle ranges, several shotgun areas. Concealed carry is explicitly allowed for permit holders, plus a member has solitary use of a pistol berm and can practice anything he wants---the only restriction is (of course) all bullets must go into the end of the berm. A great club!

    I was going to join the only indoor range in the area. It's about 30-40 miles (not minutes) from my house. It's only $40 a year. The only problem is, they only open the indoor range two nights a week after 5pm.

    So instead I go next door to my parents house. They have a lot of land and a large dirt pile back by the treeline that was made for us to shoot into. The only problem is in the winter, I can't shoot as much because it's so friggin cold most days.

    For much of the past 15yrs, I have shot mostly pistols, so a low-cost indoor range made the most sense. Combined with the occasional excursion to BLM public lands, that worked out well. What rifle and shotgun I did shoot was done as a guest with friends, either to the public lands or to their ranges.

    In the past couple/three years, I've added a few rifles and a shotgun to the stable. So, this past year, I joined a larger range. It has a 200/300/600 yd range, a 100/200 yd range, a 50/100yd range, a pistol range, an "action" (IPSC, CASS) range with more than a dozen pits, a black powder range, an indoor .22 range, and outdoor .22 range, a trap shotgun range, and a skeet shotgun range. With the clubhouse (kitchen and fireplace), it's a pleasant place to go when a foul-weather jaunt to the public lands takes a back seat. The initiation fee was enough to choke a rhino, but annually, $10/mo seems like a bargain if frequently shooting, zeroing in different equipment, working up loads, participating in group competitions/meets.

    I know what you mean , I have been semi seriously considering picking up some salvage culverts removed from state highways ( i am looking at about the 6 footers ) and burying a 100 yard range . It wouldnt be fancy , or even nice , but would be calm and either cooler or warmer than outside depending on season . I really suspect that cost will scare me off when it comes down to it , but damm its tempting lol .

    Yes, for an indoor private club. Nine lanes with automatic target systems, great range control and great folks. I get the family pack since my wife shoots too.

    22 Rimfire allowed on one lane, as well as shotguns. Otherwise, it's pistol only.

    They also have an FFL, stocks of ammo, guns and equipment.

    $150 a year, no lane fees and 15% off on ammo. Would prefer to shoot outdoors, but here in central VA very difficult to find someplace to do it.

    My IDPA club - which unfortunately is furthest away is $50 per year ..... very well appointed in 164 acres and so worth the trip periodically.

    Locally am fortunate ------- one hunting oriented club 8 miles away with rather primitive but very adequate range, a mere $10 a year - useful for dynamic handgun practice.

    The another where I have life membership - about 5 miles away. Small 3 lane 100 yard range (outdoors but covered firing point) ........ excellent, and even better when I can, as often, be there with no one else around. Also ideal for dynamic shooting.

    $140 for a family membership.

    About 15 pistol stations from 7-25 yards.
    15 rifle benches from 25-200 yards.
    3 skeet, 8 Trap houses, and sporting clays.

    I think that meeting all the like minded people all in one spot is almost worth the cost.
