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 range listing

Pennsylvania Shooting RangesPennyslvania is one of the largest gun owners States in the Country.   It amazes most people to hear something like that because it’s not viewed as one of the most rugged places in the Country, but the reality is PA has the 2nd largest number of NRA members, 2nd Largest number of gun shows in the Country and it is home of some of the most Pro-Gun Blue Dog Democrats in the Country.   The majority of Pennsylvanias political squabbles revolve around Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.

Philadelphia has plenty of indoor shooting ranges, but for those wishing to shoot shotgun and rifle, you have to get about an hour out of the City to find a decend Pennyslvania Shooting Ranges.   There are  a few gun clubs that are 200-300yd ranges within about an hour of the Philly boarder but they are private ranges.   Check out the listing we have on our forum and kelp keep us up to date with any training or range activities and range facilities.


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.
