It's a strong possibility that I will be relocating to the Sayre, Pa area. Does anyone know of any ranges or clubs in that area (indoors or outdoors)? I am mostly looking for places to shoot handgun, but occasionally like to break out the AR. Ideally I am looking for places where you can set up multiple targets, draw from the holster, shoot on the move, etc.

I have my sis-in-law living in that area and I know a couple of officers there; I will forward your question to them.
I am a couple hours North of Sayre if you ever make your way into the Southern Tier of NYS.

Thanks tcsd1236.

Is Ithaca 2 hours from Sayre? It looks to be about an hour trip on the map. I am curious because I would sometimes have to travel there for work.

There is a range in Sayre. It is the Sayre Sportsman Club. Also a range in Towanda, about 15 minutes from Sayre.

Come on down! I'm there already. :D

The area is mostly rural, mostly conservative, pro-gun, pro-hunting. Iffin' you move here and don't set yourself up on some empty land out of town, the Sayre Sportsmans Club is the place to go. They've got 120+ dedicated acres set back in the hills. The trap/skeet range and league is the driving force of the club but they also have a 25 yard pistol pit, 100/200 yard rifle range with a valley wall as a backstop, wooded trails set up for shotgun and archery field targets, plus a big fishing pond down back. Bring what you've got, shoot what you brought. No glass targets and pick up after yourself when you go. Not a bad deal for $35 a year.

If you get over this way, give me a holler. I'd be happy to show you around.

Ithaca/Tompkins County? Been there, Done that. Liberal cesspool. I miss the lake though.

To add to what others have said. The Sayre Sportsmans Club is about 1 mile from me. It is set up mainly for trap and skeet with a 100 and 200 hundred yard rifle range. There is a local gunstore owner that is pushing to create a couple of decent handgun ranges.

The Towanda Club has outdoor ranges, but they also have a 25 yard indoor range. Nice facility and only ~20 miles from Sayre.

The one nice thing about both groups are they don't charge an arm and a leg for memebership.

Yes, its all of a 2 hour drive. By way of comparison, Syracuse is an hour E of Ithaca.
