What's you range rates $$$?

I'm considering paying a fee of $150/yr for a 400Yd range. This pretty much guarantees me a half day once a month. This is a private range and honestly I've never used it that much, currently about twice a year @ $25 each. I feel I should pay the dues as to not loose out on the long range. What does everyone else pay for range time? Thanks

$40 a year club membership gets me a key and use of the range with steel to 1000 yards any time I want as long as it is light out. That also gets access to the indoor hand gun and 22 rifle range.

But I have a private range out side in my back yard to shoot as far as I wishwhere i do most of my shooting and load development.

$85 a year. I looked around here and it was the only place at the time that had longer range gongs. My friend just joined a range with a 400 yrd. setup and it was $200/yr.

My range is 60 mi. away, so a day of shooting is going to cost $20 in gas, just to put the cost of the range in perspective. There are some "free" areas to shoot around here, but they can be fairly scary on the weekends.

Re: What's you range rates $$$?

recent price increases took mine up to $75.00 a year. We get teh combo to teh locks on the gate, which change annually.

In addition to our NRA target range (200, 300, 400, 600, 800, 900, and 1,000 yard firing lines) .
we have steel critter targets to 560 yards and steel round targets out to 950 yards.

We can shoot when its dark, but need to let the LEOs and range office know we are going to do so in advance.

Re: What's you range rates $$$?

I was a member of a local gun club with nice pistol rages and limited rifle ranges, 100 and 200 yards with restrictions on shooting through toobs. cost was about $140.00 per year. This year I made a small private range that is "free" for me but you need 4wd to get to. but now i have some capability to get out to several hundred yards.

the rifle range I belong to is 12 miles away . the membership is $15 per year , and you must be a NRA member . a one time $1 gets you a key to the gate . it's in a good location away from houses , so there really is no shooting hours . it is 500 meters , with steel silhouettes at 200 ,300 ,400, 500 . it also has rimfire silhouettes at 50 , 75 , 100 . it's very convenient for me , but I wish it went to 1000 .
