    I moved back to the CT shoreline this yr from FL.
    The range fees up here are just ridiculous, almost twice what it cost in FL.

    Any recommendations ?

    There is a great place (for pistols only) in Greenwich. Is that near you?

    Can't help you out on places to shoot, but sure am envious of the location.
