I live outside of DC but head down to the Chickamauga/Lafayette area at least every other month. Was there for a week at memorial day and will be there for the Fourth and the following week. Part of my wife's family is from there. We also head down to St. Simons every August - were the rest of her family is.

For the last year or so I have been looking at large land tracts to purchase in the hopes of leaving DC behind and taking a job in Chattanooga and living in GA (though TN has no income tax).

I'd love to go shooting sometime with you folks.

Someone set up a GA members shoot for July 10th. For the life of me I can't find the post. Can someone link it up to this thread. I hope to be there with an assortment of goodies and look forward to meeting other members.

July 8, 2004, 10:19 AM
Hey Krusty and MAC

Where do you guys shoot on the south side? I'm looking for an outdoor range that I don't have to spend an hour or more driving to and Three Rivers is a bit on the pricey side the last time I checked. I'm shooting at Georgia Range and Guns in Forest Park but really prefer an outdoor range if I can find one.


July 30, 2004, 09:29 AM
Duluth GA here...well when i'm in the country.

August 1, 2004, 09:21 PM

August 24, 2004, 09:39 AM

could you let me know how to get there from Duluth GA. I've clicked on the link for directions/photos/etc and it isn't working.

August 24, 2004, 09:48 AM
Quintin, you ever go out to English on Benning?

October 27, 2004, 10:51 AM
I'm in Duluth also. I've been over to Georgia Range and Guns on PIB but I'd love to find an outdoor place to shoot. I've seen the website for the one in Covington. Anybody know of any others?


October 27, 2004, 10:59 AM
Your best bet for an outdoor range is the DNR facility out past Gainesville.

Here are the directions (based on downtown atlanta) for the three DNR ranges I know of.

----------Charlie Elliot----------

Weather Report for Charlie Elliot.....


Merge onto I-75 S.

Merge onto I-20 EAST RAMP. go 0.8 miles

Merge onto I-20 E. go 40.1 miles

Take the GA-11 exit, exit number 98, towards MONROE/MONTICELLO.

Go South (turn RIGHT off the exit) onto GA-11,

Proceed to Mansfield go 7.7 miles to train tracks


From the train tracks in the middle of town you will travel 2.7 miles to a sign for Charlie Elliot WMA.

Turn left onto Marben Farms road, and the range is 1.4 miles down the road, on the left.

The paved road will turn into a dirt road just before the range.

----------Wilson Shoals----------

I-85 N from Atlanta to I-985 N (to Gainesville)

I-985 becomes Hwy 365 north of Gainesville

From exit 24 (last exit # on I-985) continue on Hwy 365 N 11 miles

Turn right on Mud Creek Road ( gas, food & goodies station at the intersection)

go 1 mile, turn left on Old Cornelia Hwy

go 0.1 miles, turn right on Yonah Road

go 2.1 miles to entrance on left

This is a gravel road and not well marked. There is a large wooden sign announcing "Wilson Shoals WMA."

The range is not marked or advertised, but it is on the right about 0.5 miles down the gravel road.

Estimated drive time is about an hour from the I-285 / I-85 N intersection.

----------John's Mountain----------

Take I-75 north to exit 320 (??verify??) (Resaca/Lafayette/Hwy 136). -- 69.5 miles

Turn left heading toward Lafayette.

You will travel 10.5 miles then you will have to stop at a stop sign.

Turn right heading west on Hwy 136.

You will travel 2/10th's of a mile and turn right at the dirt road.

There will be a sign saying "shooting range". Just go down the road about half a mile, just stay to the right and you will be there.

I totally forgot about this thread and realized I never never responded to a few of you. I will make up for that shortly...

Any interest in a THR GA membership get together? I received my first CMP M1 Garand yesterday and was thinking of heading to the range sometime next month. It would be nice to meet up with some of the other locals.


October 27, 2004, 11:59 AM
I'd love to get together with you guys. Because of some health issues with family members up here, I'm not sure If I'll be down nest month for Turkey day, but I will be in GA for the last two weeks in December.

October 27, 2004, 12:27 PM
I'd like to meet up with some fellow THR members. I'm in for a get together.


October 27, 2004, 07:52 PM
How about that...change of plans.

Looks like we're moving to Gainesville/Hall Co. in the early part of December...look forward to getting together with some of you folks.

Atlanta, GA here. Clairmont Rd./PDK Area.

November 18, 2004, 10:30 AM
Powder Springs here...most of my shooting is done at Hot Shots on Austell Rd. and at the West Ga. Tactical Shooters IDPA meets out in Carrollton. Scuttlebutt is that the old Wolf Creek indoor range on Bankhead in Douglasville has reopened under a new name...I've yet to check it out.

November 18, 2004, 03:49 PM
Stone Mountain/ Lilburn area for me. I usually go to Bullseye indoor range in Lawrenceville.

Quintin, you ever go out to English on Benning?
Yup. I think I have to renew my membership now though, haven't been out there in a while. I sometimes go to Shooters indoor range too. Whenever there's a match at CRC in Cusseta, I try to be there, and I'm too chicken to shoot full course at Easley for now. Once in a blue moon, me and some guys from work will head out to Tuskeegee National Park, they have a little 100 yard range there, costs $2 for a day pass if I remember right.

May 18, 2005, 04:04 PM
Covington here, just about a mile up 212 from South River Gun Club. Usually head out to Charlie Elliot to do my shooting though. Do my hunting out in northern washington county, near hamburg state park.

May 26, 2005, 09:50 AM
From Habersham county...stationed in Warner Robins.

Have a gun or two...will travel.

I shoot at Ocmulgee WMA, Marion Road in Macon, and Wilson Shoals...when I'm back home.

May 26, 2005, 10:05 AM
Work in downtown Atlanta. Live in Douglasville. Shoot at the family farm in Carroll County, or at an indoor range in Forest Park.

May 26, 2005, 11:31 AM
Heading down to LaFayette on Friday. I'll be there all week.

Shoot me a PM if you want to shoot.

Man, how did I miss this thread?

Anyone know a good outdoor range in the Northeast GA area other than the Wilson Shoals WMA?

December 25, 2006, 01:00 PM
I live outside of Abbeville (east of Tifton/Ashburn). I shoot in my backyard. I can get about 100-150 yards. I would love to meet other THR users. MK

December 25, 2006, 03:29 PM
Just north of Metro Atlanta in Roswell.

Don't get to shoot nearly as much as I would like. The only place to shoot up this way for free is at Wilson Shoals. Got a good friend with a farm in NW Georgia that lets me have free run of the place with only an advance phone call that I'm coming.


December 25, 2006, 03:35 PM

Finally back in GA. Live in Paulding County now. Anyone in near Paulding know of a good outdoor shooting range?

There is a reasonable 10/25/50/100 yard outdoor range in Temple, Georgia (N. Carroll county, right on I-20). That may be fairly close, depending on where you are in Paulding.
