The range I go to is 300 the first year, then 100 yearly after that, or $14 each time. But active duty military is free, as long as they don't have anything special going on. So, I don't pay anything.

For the most part I do not pay anything But I do a few times a year and when I do it is $10.00 a day. Where I shoot I can shoot anywhere from point blank range to 500 yards.

$70.00 Family annual fee for one club I belong to.
$40.00 Single Adult annual fee for another.
And $25.00 Single Adult for the third.


I can visit any many times as I want, no extra fees except for maybe a small match fee, or practice night donations.



I stay away from for-profit ranges, which is what you're looking at.

$200 a year for indoor which gives me 6 lanes at 15 yds and 6 lanes at 25 yds. Then another $24 per year for a separate outdoor range run by the state where I get my 100 yds and a 15 yds pistol range. That one is closed Jan-Feb and I don't like shooting in the cold anyway :)

My indoor range is $250 for an annual membership, which lets you bring anyone in your family.

Otherwise, it's $20 for a lane and $10 for another person on the same lane.

Blue Grass Sportsmans league 18 minutes south of Lexington KY $200 anual / unlimited use durring normal hours. Go to http://bgslinc.com for more information. When the weather is too bad I go to local indoor ranges (rarely) they are pricey at $12.50 per 1/2 hour. BGSL has Skeet, Trap, Sporting Clays, 300 yd rifle range, 12 to 100 yd General purpose pistol/rifle range, Tactical pistol pits (6) I think, NRA bullseye pistol range, air rifle range, Black powder ranges, archery ranges (including stands and 3d targets). Sanctioned sports like IDPA, IPSC/USPSA, NRA rifle and pistol, GSSF, Steel challenge etc, etc. All this on over 1400 acres. BGSL is a League of Clubs for all interests for most outdoor activities, that can make it even more gratifing, I am a Pistol Club member. They even have specials on membership for current and retired military and law enforcement. If you live in Central Kentucky you should check BGSL out, I have been a member for just over 3 years, I will probably be a member for life, can't wait till I retire and have even more time to spend there... in about 15 years.

I belong to two ranges. One is $200 a year for unlimited use, only short range (35 yds) but has three 'action' type berms you can use however you see fit so long as you are safe. Very good for IPSC/IDPA/tactical type training.

The other is a $100 membership then $5 per visit; lanes shooting out to 1000 yards and 600 yards, plus close berms for plinking and pistol.

$85 per year at the FOP outdoor range 3 miles away. It has a 100 yd rifle range with ten benches under a shed, and seven pistol pits that vary from 50 to 100 feet. Nice folks there, so I enjoy going. I mostly just shoot at home on the farm though.

First year is $50

They just implemented a new rule that you have to be a full member of the NRA and show your card as proof to become a member. After the first year it's $150 but you can earn points that take your fee down all the way to $50 if you help maintain the facility by mowing, manning a booth at a gun show, etc.

The local indoor range here charges $225 a year plus tax. That gives you unlimited range visits, a discount in their attached store (But not on firearms or ammunition) and discounts on gun rentals. The outdoor range near me charges $3 per hour, targets and ear/eye protection included if you need it. I don't have a membership at the indoor range, so I mostly go to the outdoor range and pay the $3.

In my experience, the more you pay the better the amenities and the less of the riff raff that make ranges unsafe.

That said though I have paid 75 at one place and 150 at another. I joined the 75 dollar one first then joined the 150 range and never went back to the other one. The effective payment of 225 for the 150 range was money well spent.

Outdoor range. There is a pistol range (up to 50yd), a 100yd rifle range and a trap/skeet range. All are free to home owners of the City. Just pick up a key and go shooting. The trap/skeet is the only one that has a range manager and you have to pay for the clays that you shoot. Pretty nice setup.

local ma-and pa run range has indoor 25-yard,outdoor 100-200 yard with covered seating, pistol-plate racks,trap range,about 20-50-yd or less ranges with adjustable post mounts as close as 10-feet, can bring 1-friend free each visit otherwise 10/day,,,,, heres the best part it's only 3-miles from my house,, AND $50/year covers my whole family !!! wow !! i hope the owners dont read posts on here !! or i could stand to get hosed as bad as some others on here,,,,200-300 a year ?? that's crazy !! i do however enjoy going out of town to my buddy's farm to shoot targets other than paper,,,,, 1-gallon milk-jugs filled full with water make great 400-yd targets for my.243 as they explode when punctured at high-velocity,,, dont think they'd appreciate that at the range,,, and there is something to be said about the low-fee's,,, they seem to attract a bunch of riff-raff,,, i've had to yell down the firing line at least 4-times in the last 2-years "Whoa buddy, thats me on the end of that barrell",,,, only once did i have to report someone to range officer,,, i think he made sure they weren't welcome back

The local indoor shooting range has polymer boards that separate the bays. Does anyone know if the boards are meant to stop a powerful handgun round?
