    There is one I know of called Sumac, but do not know many details. The people at that forum might know. Also, depending how close you are to Chattanooga, you may like Prentice Cooper.

    I have directions for John's Mountain down to the tenth in my work email. Basically, go North to Resaca (exit 320 I think - the one with the flying J). Turn left (west) and go a bit. From there I need to look the directions up. I'll look for those when I have a chance. It's a fairly nice outdoor place, has a covered outhouse, useage fee is $5 per car.

    Wow! I guess I never relized how good some people have it. My local Sportsmens Association has a range thats open year round and if you are a member you can use it anytime or you if you go with a member. The cost of member ship for a year, $5.

    ----------John's Mountain----------

    Take I-75 north to exit 320 (Resaca/Lafayette/Hwy 136). -- 69.5 miles
    Turn left heading toward Lafayette.
    You will travel 10.5 miles then you will have to stop at a stop sign.
    Turn right heading west on Hwy 136.
    You will travel 2/10th's of a mile and turn right at the dirt road.
    There will be a sign saying "shooting range". Just go down the road about half a mile, just stay to the right and you will be there.
    This facility has a usage fee. At the moment, it is $5 per car.

    Fairly nice, unsupervised, Rangers will cite you for no ear/eye protection, shooting at improper target materials.
