Range Prices. What do you pay to play?

Growing up here in the country, we always just shot our guns in the yard or the woods.
There was never a need for a legit shooting range. And none existed in our area.

Now, in recent years, there’s too many neighbors, too near and no accessible woods left.
Too many people moving in from the cities. And all the woods are private hunting clubs.
A range has opened in a nearby town. It’s not very nice, but the guy is trying his best.
It has 50, 250 and 300 yard ranges and he’s working on adding a 800 yard range .
But he wants $200 a year for membership, or $10 a visit for non members.

Will I go to the range 20+ times in a year? Maybe. Probably not, but I would like to.
If the answer was a definite yes, I’d consider the membership, even if it seems high to me.
Is it too pricey? The only other range I’ve been to was free. It was 600 miles away.
So I’m wondering, what do y’all pay? How often do you go? Members? Or pay-as-you-go?

That’s crazy. No way in hell I could pay that.

This is probably something we’ll all have to deal with. But I hope not.

The gun club by me is $125/year. No per visit fees or other costs. 25-600yd rifle. Pistol range, even a cowboy shoot range. The skeet range is extra per visit but I’m not sure the cost. I went a few times but now I just shoot at my in-laws 40 acres.

Okay, maybe $200 isn’t so bad. Also, no time limits. You can shoot daylight to dark.
No extra charges for anything, including skeet, which is done on the 250 yard lane.

He also has a $300 family plan. Everyone in the house has full benefits.

Closest range for me is an outdoor rural one about an hour away, open 364 days a year. $20 cash, no time limit. Two 25 yard covered pistol ranges, 18 covered rifle stations with 50, 100, 200 and 300 yard berms as well as a separate covered 500 berm (an extra $10 I think). They also offer a 3 gun range and have 50 different sporting clay stations.

I’m a member of one of our local Izaak Waltons. Family membership is $150 per year. Indoor pistol range with key card access. Unfortunately doesn’t have an outdoor range other than trap.
For long range rifle shooting I use DNR public land. No charges at all for that

Live in central Pennsylvania. Have a sportsman’s association about 12 miles away. $125.00 to join and then $110.00 for each year after. Indoor pistol and 22 rim fire ranges open 24 hours a day. Outdoors there are multiple handgun areas including steels, shot gun areas, rifle range up to 200 yards, fishing and we are allowed to hunt in certain areas.

Being that Maryland is an ‘unfriendly’ GUN STATE, in my opinion, I drive ‘over the line’ to PA. The closest gun range is two hours round trip. I spend $100/yrly for a membership and it costs me $6.50/hrly for the pistol range (up to 25 yards.) and $12.50/hrly for the rifle range (up to 50 yards.) They are indoors and since I don’t use any rounds larger than 9mm, I get away with $6.50/hrly.

$64.00 membership + $10.00 NRA anually.
Has trap, Archery, 25, 50, 100, and 300 yd gun ranges, and 320 acres of private club land to hunt or do whatever on. I look for and metal detect old homesteads that we’re on the land in the 1800’s. Always carry the Judge with me lol…

My preferred range (OSS) is an outdoor range that’s an hour drive west of me, in Okeechobee, FL, and well worth the drive.
I do pay-as-you-go, $30 per day, no hourly limit
.
I choose their “Gallery” ranges which includes…
Pistol Range: 50M, full-auto allowed, reactive steel targets and booths where you can draw from the holster
Rifle Range: 200M, full-auto allowed, .50 cal allowed, Tannerite allowed.

There is a seperate “generic” 200M range for $12, but none of the items above are allowed. They also have an 800M range, trap & skeet, and private ranges you can rent as well.

2 hours, round trip, but so worth it… too me.

Utah… Pretty much the entire state is an outdoor range with places as far as the eye can see. If I really want to get down to the nitty gritty, the local indoor range is $10/15 per hour and it’s never enforced. No annual membership fee, either. :+1:
