Hello everyone,

I just moved down to Montgomery for a short term job and was wondering if there were any public places to plink with my AK?

AFAIK, that would be a negative. There is a range but you have to be a club member. Let me double check and I'll get back with you in a few days. . .

Not in Montgomery. Try the Tuskegee Forest 45 minutes north at Uchee. Pay 3$ at the Ranger Office or at the I85 truck stop and you're good to go.

There is a range in Shorter where Central Alabama Gun Club is but I've never been there. There's also one in Lower Wetumpka but I've never been there either.

Thanks docnyt. I will check out the Tuskegee Forest one.

I have not been to the range on Lower Wetumpka Road, but folks say it is OK. The range in Tuskegee National Forest is a typical public range. They have about 6 or 7 nice benches. No target stands etc, all shot up, but a good place to shoot if it isn't too busy.

If you would like to shoot at the Central Alabama Gun Club PM me. I am a member there. It is a much closer drive than Tuskegee. My nephew and I shot my AK there yesterday. AC

I went to the Tuskegee range and I must say that they must really like to keep that place hidden! No road signs indicating where it was as the map indicated but I finally found it after driving on a gravel road forever.

Yea, no signs, and plenty of turns along the way. ;)

Its sucks getting there after it has been raining too! I haven't been there in a few years, but most of the "road" was just packed clay then.

@Ingsoc75 - I know what you mean about the lack of signs. You'll get used to it though. Try backing out of that one lane road that leads into the range when you encounter traffic going the opposite way. I also almost ran into a lowered older Civic speeding out of that road. Yes, a lowered Civic on a bumpy dirt road.

@ juk - The "road" is still packed clay for the most part. After some rain, the underside of the car, your shoes and the bottom of your pants all look the same as the "road".

I almost can blame the driver. He probably needed all that extra momentum :)

A lowered civic on those roads? I drive a mazda 6 and it was quite a bumpy ride.

Oh how I would just like to find an empty field or area and be able to plink without worrying about the law or bubba coming after me. ;)
