My wife and I pay $250 per year (total) for 7 day a week access to a private range with a variety of ranges, out buildings, bathrooms, and privacy...hardlly ever more than just a few on a range at a time....

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?
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.
I pay $150 / yr for family membership. Can shoot anytime from 8:00am-10:00pm, free targets and discounts on anything sold in the shop.

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.

$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.
$60 a year. Has 3 fishing ponds, 50yd Blackpowder/pistol range, 25yd plinking range, 200yd rifle range, skeet range, indoor .22 pistol range, archery range, and 3D walking archery range.

We pay 150 for a family membership. We get free range time during the week, discounted prices during the weekends, discounts on everything in the shop ( full service gunshop in house )
"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.
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.
