    I spend significantly more than $120 driving to and from my shooting spot, which is 5+ miles from any paved road, way out in the woods. That count?

    Peace,

    Same here, I used to belong to a great club that cost me $75 a year. For that I got a badge and a key and use of a couple pistol ranges and 3 rifle ranges whenever I wanted.

    Then I bought 40 acres and built my own range. When I take into account berm work, target stands, steel targets, a 200 meter bench, taxes and payments, that $75 sure was well spent!

    But, I do get to make the rules now.

    200.00 a year for family membership. 9 ranges, high powered rifle range, tactical buildings and bathrooms. Very nice high end range and very well kept.
    Very seldom use it since I live in the country but have kept my membership up to help support it. Also, firearms are 10% over cost if ordered through Davidson's.

    My dues are $75 per year. We have a 100 yard range, three 25 yard bays, a 50 yard range, and soon to have a 300 yard range. The short ranges are lighted and it is open 24 hours. If I get selected for a position with the police department, I can "downgrade" my membership to $25 per year but lose my voting status, which I don't do anyways.

    I also live on a 360 acre farm where I can shoot. I initially joined the range so I could shoot IDPA and then realized that it is a lot more pleasant to shoot rifles at the range than at the house for a variety of reasons.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    $150 a year for my range which is about 15 minutes away. The only rule they have there is no messy targets, so if I want to go blow something up I go to a local gravel pit which is also about 15 minutes away.

    I lik ebringing the kids to the range though, and they have a ton of nice bays, as well as a new 600 yard range.

    "Premium membership" $220/ yr, indoor range, unlimited use, I can bring a guest free, use their rental guns free, (good selection) also includes a 10% discount on anything except guns, 3% on those. The 10% discount also applies to training classes. I figure I have saved enough on guns, ammo, classes and range time to make it well worth while.

    I also have a "limited" membership at an outdoor range, don't use it too much, $30/yr+$10 per visit. Great for sighting in the rifles.

    No problen carrying concealed at my range but to draw from holster you have to complete one of a couple different classes. My wife and I took a 4 hour "tactics and techniques" class that got our cards punched. Didn't take the class for that reason, but it was a nice side benefit.

    here in the foothills we have a bunch of ranges that back up right into the mountains, about 5 miles from my house, we have a rifle range that has about 40 lanes from 50 yards to 3000 yards, a shotgun range and a handgun range with about 15 lanes from 15 yards to 100 yards, and most of the folks all use common sense and curtesy on all of them, and since there is no charge for the ranges, the only thing the state expects us to do is clean up after ourselves, which for the most part we do, a bunch of us get together about once a month and do a FOD walk (Brass, taget can, ect...) and it works well.

    and as far as carrying concealed, no range cops out there, if you cant train that way, how can you be effecient in concealed protection.... just my 2 cents.
