Hi I knew my membership at the local range was coming up for renewal. This range has been open for many two years and it's a nice place to go. They give discounts for police/ems/fire personnel in their yearly memberships. Well, when I got to inquiring about renewing I found out they had tripled the cost of a membership for firefighters from what it was a year ago. I was curious what the going cost for a membership is. For a regular membership it is $350 per year and FF discount is $300 per year. This is in central North Carolina. Thanks for your input on this

My indoor gun club here in Colorado Springs is $330 per year if you pay monthly as I do. I believe if you pay annually they knock one month off. There are no "per visit" range fees.

£145 a year, no visit fees, rental of guns is £1 each time.
Visitors can only use firearms on the first Sunday of the month, and must pay £2 registration. They don't pay for rifle rental, only for ammo. Same applies to probationers, they don't pay rifle rental. Probation is 13 consecutive weeks.
If you have your own rifle but don't have an approved place to store it where you live, they have safe rental at £100 a year.
Ammo: 50 rnds Eley Sport will cost you £3, 50 rnds Magtech .38 SPL will cost just under £10.
It is expensive in London, my son!

I went to Whispering Pines for the range portion they hit every one in the class W/ a 20.00$ range fee.

It may well have been the instructor gouging us but we all had to pay it.

I took a pistol in there once to fit holsters I took it out of the case in the presence of the counter help handed it to him and said " I unloaded in the car but I'll let you clear it as well before we look at holsters." He looked at me like I was insane, took the gun turned away and went into some kind of Ninja crouching dragon, hidden butt monkey stance, cleared the weapon and at the top of his lungs yelled out " WEAPON IS KA-LEAR!!"
( He sounded like the munchkin lady in "Poltergiest" )

Later he almost drew on me when I asked him how his holster was working ( Same brand I was considering).

I never went back.

At a small private club in the Minneapolis western Exurban area:

With six hours of volunteer work: $35.00 annually.

Without the work: Additional billing of $35.00 per hour of unworked time.

There's currently resolutions being debated at the monthly meetings to tweak these fees slightly--we've been having trouble getting volunteers for work.

Holy crap, HSO, $120 for 1K yard range access - nice; I'm moving to TN! Although I don't particularly care for the placement of that "Action Pistol Range", relative to the 1K yard range. :uhoh: I guess there's a lot of trees in between, if no berm.

Here, I pay $90 for working membership, $130 for non-working. Unlimited guests. Max range is 200 at this one; I can get access to a 600 if I want at another gun club where a friend is a member.

Free public range, recently updated. The one bay and parking area to the north is the LEO range, the rest is ours. All bays have covered shooting areas now, and 4 have concrete benches. Area is fenced, and no cars are up to the bay or on the range - used to be a problem. City employees clean up every morning. Love it. More improvements on the way- this town likes it's range. :)

fees are going to double for '09, it will now cost $10 a year, up from 5. For an inexpensive private range it is really nice, a covered 25yd pistol, combat range, covered 'plinking' range, 100 & 200 yd rifle ranges, and a trap & skeet area. It is well maintained, clean, friendly, and brutely cold in January and February.

Izaak Walton Shooting & Recreation Park in Chugiak Alaska is the range I'm a member at. Annual fee is $175 this includes immediate family members. Its a gated range with 3 - 25 yard, 2 - 50yard, 1 - 100yard, 1- 300 yard benched and covered ranges. Open to the public 9 to 6 daily ($10 non-member fee). Open to members 7 to 10 daily. Members get a magnetic key card for off hour access, I prefer going on the off hours and usually have the entire range to myself..

I pay $45 per your for my membership and that takes care of my wife and kids, and I can bring guests for free. The downside is that it's in outdoor range kinda sucks in the winter.

It went up from $50-$75 and I did not renew. Considering, you can go up in the hills in Wyoming and shoot all day, I thought the fee increase was ridiculous, especially in view of they didn't make any improvements, and range was always in littered, sad shape.

$25 a year, state-owned/run. For the most part, a nice range but only 25, 50, and 100 yd ranges. Nothing shorter, which is a major downside for me.

The club owns the surrounding few hundred acres that are open to hunting for members.

I just joined this summer, and I thought it was a bit steep, but it really is a great place, and one of the few in this state.

We pay $35 for a two-person membership (say, husband and wife, or father and son) annually. For another $15 up front, there is no daily range fee. If you don't pay the $15 up front, you pay $1 for each time you visit.

The range is an outdoor operation on the outskirts of Redmond; a great deal of volunteer work has been done on the place in the past two years. It's a good place to spend some quality time with your firearms. Many of the area's LEOs are regular customers there.

$0. Our municipal range is free.

I guess I should mention that the municipal range is made up of several different ranges, including a pistol range, a silhouette range and a known distance range out to 1000 yards. The local gun club act as the range's stewards, and do a pretty good job of keeping it clean and maintained. It's also far enough outside of town to where there shouldn't be a problem with housing developments nearby, at least for a few decades.

Failing that, a lot of the desert out here is BLM land - unfortunately the impromptu shooting areas invariably turn into trash pits.
