Re: Moving to Colorado

I live in Longmont, near the peoples republik of boulder. I shoot at http://www.ncrgc.org/, and I think we are accepting new members. Many of the clubs around here have long waiting lists (I was told the wait at one club was 106 years!). There is a public range at http://www.pawneesports.com/ that seems reasonable. One benefit to the pawnee area is that you can shoot in the pawnee grass lands. All you need is a GPS, and a map of the area. The other range I have shot at is http://wcfw.org/. Most of the ranges cost around $70-120/year, with some sort of work requirement. The ones I listed are closer to Ft. Collins.

Re: Moving to Colorado

I've shot at the Pawnee Sportsmen's Club and it's a pretty nice range but only goes to 200 yards. There is also a cowboy actions range, trap, skeet and five stand. It is on private land and not the grasslands though. This range is about 1/2 hour east of FtC on Highway 14. It has public hours and also a membership option that allows you to shoot whenever there isn't a organized shoot.

There is another members only range north of town that probably has a long waiting list and stretches out to 600 yards or so.

You can shoot in the grasslands too, but be sure to have a map and gps so you don't trespass on the checkboard of private land in the area.

Good luck with the move, it's a beautiful country with great weather and you can't beat resident permit prices for elk tags!

Thanks Guys. I am looking forward to it. Wife is dragging her feet though. Economy is pretty piss poor here in Michigan, I wonder if the Democrat/Woman Governor can see what she has done the last few years.

Re: Moving to Colorado

If you ahev the time and inclination, head up to the Pawnee Grasslands. There is place to shoot to the right as you drive in. I've left a lot of lead at that spot.

Re: Moving to Colorado

Thanks I was looking at it on the map. Do you just go in there and set up and start shooting ? Do you need a permit?
