    I'm moving SW N.C., right on the border line of North & South Carolina, right by Lake Wylie. The bad point to this move is, I'm now almost an hour away from my beloved range. Does anyone know of any ranges near Lake Wylie, S.C. or even in Rock Hill, S.C.

    I shoot at Pappy's Gun Shop in Edgemoor. It is about 20 minutes south of Rock Hill. I live near Fort Mill and Lake Wylie. You go south on I-77 to exit 77. Then about 8 miles south on 21 at Killian Road.

    Clyde, the owner, hosts a gun club at his range. If you want more information, you can PM me or look at his web site, pappysgunshop.com. The web site really needs updating. The range is very different than you can see on the site.

    No, that's not close to the S. Carolina, Lake Wylie border at all. Firepower is closer. Besides traffic getting out there is horrible.
