    Anything around or near the Scranton Area, Northeast of PA? The longest range I can find is 200 yards at the public range in Archbald. Anyone know of something longer that's not too far from me? 500 yards would be great but 300/400 yards is better than 200 yards.

    I know you can simulate 400 yards on a 200 yard range with target size but as most of us know it's really not the same. A real range would be fun.

    Thank you...

    There aren't any long range facilities in NE PA that I know of. However, there is a club just off route 80 that has a 300 yd range with 35 concrete benches and a complete overhead to keep you out of the sun/rain.

    The club is the Mainville Sportsman Club and I shoot there myself. They currently have open enrollment if you're interested. Curt, from Curt's Gun Shop in town is the club secretary and can give you all the info on the facility where there are at least 6 different ranges.

    You can see their web page here:
