    I am looking for a shooting range in Pa. I would prefer that it was in Pittsburgh, but I will drive to Philidelphia if I have to. It must have rental handguns. I would like it to rent full auto, but it doesn't have to. I am from South Central Pa, so driving to Erie or like towns is out of the question. My 16th birthday is coming soon and I want to go to a shooting range and blast away to celebrate.

    Go in to your local gunshop, and ask them about local sportsmen's associations and shooting clubs in your area.

    Just about every town worth a damn in Pennsylvania has a sportsmen's club.

    nsf003 -

    I know where you're from. Erie would actually be a shorter drive than to Philly. It's only about 3 hours. Philly is closer to 4, 4 1/2.

    I don't know of any ranges around here other than the local Sportsman's clubs, and none that have rental guns. There are some nice local outdoor ranges. Hollidaysburg has IDPA shoots and Cowboy Action. Riggles Gap is nice. I shoot at Bellwood. Membership is $10/year. Nice outdoor rifle and pistol range.

    When I was in the Poconos years ago, I remember a range there that had rental guns, and full autos. I can't recall exactly where it was.

    Targetmaster in Chadds Ford is very nice, and they have rentals, including full auto, I think. It is on Rt. 202 just north of the Delaware border.
