Looking for long ranges near West Point, NY (50 miles north of NYC)

My local cub has a 200 yard range, but I'm looking for a chance to shoot out to 500+. Anyone know of something in my area?

Thanks!

Nearest club with a range over 200 that I know of is in the Colonie / Albany area. I believe the name is Forbes. But there must be others. Several friends and myself are looking too.

Other than the Troy/Albany range which goes up to 1000, the best I have found is the club I now use, www.Sarasparodandgunclub.org which goes up to 200 yards.

The Troy/Albany 1000 range uses volunteers to work the pits so it takes a bit to be able to shoot those ranges as you need to pay your dues.....so to speak by working the pits.
