    Hi guys,

    I've just gone through a relocation and I am now firmly planted here in South Carolina. Being new to the area and not knowing much about the area, I was wondering if anyone might know of a range (300 yds.+) in the vacinity.

    I'm in the extreme Southwest corner of the state, on Lake Hartwell & the Georgia border.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    The Gun Site Hills range is the longest one in Northeast Georgia that I know about. It is located a few miles east of Lexington Ga on US 78. The guys there are into long range shooting big time. Chief is super. I take it you are a sheep hunter. Where did you move from? Contact me for other info. Thanks.

    Check out Mid Carolina Rifle Club, website (I believe) is Mid-Carolina Rifle Club

    This is located in South Congaree just outside of Columbia. There are plenty of ranges and out 100& 200 yard range is currently enjoying a great makeover. There are a lot of shooting diciplines involved with this club.

    To join, you must be present at one of our monthly meetings and then show up for a range safety briefing. Currently dues are $100/year but that is likely to increase tp $130. We need to pay for certain safety issues and normal range maintenance.

    If you live over a certain number of miles from the range and I can't recall the number, the cost is cheaper.

    SC Shooting range Spartanburg area

    State supported range outside of Lyman Thompsons I think. Get people happy to see you come and shoot.

    SCDNR James O. Thomason Firing Range (Spartanburg County) From Pauline, take SC Hwy. 215 approximately ½ mile east toward Glenn Springs. Turn left on Foster Mill Road and drive 2.5 miles (paved road becomes gravel road). Range is on the left side of the road. Hours: Tuesday - Saturday: 9 am - 5 pm (EST) or as posted. Closed Sunday and Monday

    Yes there is and it is real close to home for you. Elbert County Gun Club in Elberton, Ga. 706 213-0098. Talk with Craig Smith(club manager) and he will fix you up. We have a 400 yard range,pistol range, archery range and the "shotgunners" dream clays. Just down the road we have our 1000 yard range at Graben Farms which will be a One Mile Range sometime in the near future. J.D.
