    Hi I knew my membership at the local range was coming up for renewal. This range has been open for many two years and it's a nice place to go. They give discounts for police/ems/fire personnel in their yearly memberships. Well, when I got to inquiring about renewing I found out they had tripled the cost of a membership for firefighters from what it was a year ago. I was curious what the going cost for a membership is. For a regular membership it is $350 per year and FF discount is $300 per year. This is in central North Carolina. Thanks for your input on this

    My indoor gun club here in Colorado Springs is $330 per year if you pay monthly as I do. I believe if you pay annually they knock one month off. There are no "per visit" range fees.

    £145 a year, no visit fees, rental of guns is £1 each time.
    Visitors can only use firearms on the first Sunday of the month, and must pay £2 registration. They don't pay for rifle rental, only for ammo. Same applies to probationers, they don't pay rifle rental. Probation is 13 consecutive weeks.
    If you have your own rifle but don't have an approved place to store it where you live, they have safe rental at £100 a year.
    Ammo: 50 rnds Eley Sport will cost you £3, 50 rnds Magtech .38 SPL will cost just under £10.
    It is expensive in London, my son!

    I went to Whispering Pines for the range portion they hit every one in the class W/ a 20.00$ range fee.

    It may well have been the instructor gouging us but we all had to pay it.

    I took a pistol in there once to fit holsters I took it out of the case in the presence of the counter help handed it to him and said " I unloaded in the car but I'll let you clear it as well before we look at holsters." He looked at me like I was insane, took the gun turned away and went into some kind of Ninja crouching dragon, hidden butt monkey stance, cleared the weapon and at the top of his lungs yelled out " WEAPON IS KA-LEAR!!"
    ( He sounded like the munchkin lady in "Poltergiest" )

    Later he almost drew on me when I asked him how his holster was working ( Same brand I was considering).

    I never went back.

    At a small private club in the Minneapolis western Exurban area:

    With six hours of volunteer work: $35.00 annually.

    Without the work: Additional billing of $35.00 per hour of unworked time.

    There's currently resolutions being debated at the monthly meetings to tweak these fees slightly--we've been having trouble getting volunteers for work.

    Holy crap, HSO, $120 for 1K yard range access - nice; I'm moving to TN! Although I don't particularly care for the placement of that "Action Pistol Range", relative to the 1K yard range. :uhoh: I guess there's a lot of trees in between, if no berm.

    Here, I pay $90 for working membership, $130 for non-working. Unlimited guests. Max range is 200 at this one; I can get access to a 600 if I want at another gun club where a friend is a member.

    Free public range, recently updated. The one bay and parking area to the north is the LEO range, the rest is ours. All bays have covered shooting areas now, and 4 have concrete benches. Area is fenced, and no cars are up to the bay or on the range - used to be a problem. City employees clean up every morning. Love it. More improvements on the way- this town likes it's range. :)
