Where to find a good place to shoot at?

Trying to find a good place to shoot long guns is hard, anyone living in an Urban environment is going to have trouble finding an out door range.  Many outdoor ranges near cities are very restrictive and even here in the Philadelphia region the ranges are just not any fun to be on because of the range rules.  I’m not saying you need to find a place to shoot full auto but a place that is safe to shoot at, has maintained target back stops and has a covered table means a lot to someone that likes to spend all afternoon there.

Range rules are important because violating them might make things very unsafe and good signs and nice people help too.   It took us a very long time to categorize the information but The Rally Point gun club listings because so many ranges have closed down or do not have websites that it’s hard to find information.  Some clubs don’t want to be on a map but that is kind of bad in the long run because most of the ranges will probable have little membership involvement and may eventually just die out.

Pennsylvania Shooting RangesLanghorne rod and gun club is one of the best run gun clubs in Pennsyvlania.    As of now there is no member cap although I wouldn’t be surprised that at some point there might be one.    They have a well maintained rifle range that is called the Big Bore range.   You can shoot any semi-auto up to but not including a 50bmg.   There are several competitive shooting groups here from Action Pistol to the Practical Carbine group.

One thing to be careful about when walking the 100-200yd rifle range is the snakes.   The club even has a sign up that warns of the the snakes in the area.  Kinda funny to see something like that at a range, but it might be good for checking your situational awareness.   There are trap ranges that are open for only a few bucks for each match and the new club house makes spending the day even nicer and more accomodating.  Find out about Pennsylvania Shooting Ranges like this one over at


Shooting Ranges

Shooting Range ListingWe have compiled info from our membership over the years and hoping that eventually we will get enough input to keep our info up to date.  While we realize that some glubs do not want to post all of there info, we feel that we can be a conduit for people atleast finding out how to find out where a range is.

When searching the intenet looking for places to shoot, you may find a few shooting range listings, but there is still very little info out there and it’s also virtually impossible to get answers.   We tried to start something new a few years ago and started in hopes of eventually building a resource to connect.  While we were searching the internet we found a few resources for gun club info, but atleast 20% of it was inaccurate or flat out wrong.  Gun clubs that have been closed for years were still listed and range info was obsolete.

There is a need for State and Regional organizations, but many of these are for political purposes and not for a hands on application educating and increasing our (Responsible Gun Owners) numbers. Any NRA Certified instructor may post training classes on our forums and we hope that eventually there will be more gun clubs organizing Rally Points around the Country.

We also realize that many gun clubs do not have the money or the man power to maintain websites and to get the word out about what is going on there. It is also very difficult to try and locate where gun clubs are. We realize this may take several months or years to get the word out about, and we ask that our membership help us do this. The firing line is where teaching the next generation occurs and wants to be the conduit on the internet to get this done.
