    I shoot at J.R.'s in Aurora. Haven't been in a couple of months (busy with work). Been wanting to try MegaSports in Plainfield.

    How about you?

    Mega Sports is ridiculously expensive to shoot. I shoot at Rink's in Lockport... $8.

    Just FYI - Rink's is not MegaSports. It's a good old fashioned range. Poor lighting, questionable HVAC, and black lung :rofl:

    So you get what you pay for basically. I like MegaSports because its nice, good air quality, and its pretty bright. I DONT like paying 27 dollars to get in. I dont like payihng .55 cents for targets. Where is Rink's located at?

    Archer Avenue (aka Route 171) in Lockport, a mile or so southwest of the I-355 interchange.

    Went to JR's today. Their target system is nice. Thats probally the only thing that I liked. 19.99 for 1hr is a bit expensive, and unlimited shooting w/ten dollar ammo purchase. I like Mega Sports more.

    I looked into starting an indoor range with rentals, etc., and trust me, it's RIDICULOUSLY expensive. Building, target system, EPA-approved lead-control HVAC system, INSURANCE, and payroll expenses (if you can't be at the place yourself all the time - and the big mega-places are totally like that), and it becomes quickly understandable why it's so stupidly expensive to go shoot at them... I decided not to do it, because down-state here, there's too many places to go out in the country, so volume times price wouldn't pay the bills...

    I've been using Rink's as well, but I was disappointed last week. They got a new sales guy who is kind of a pindick. Talking to him, you'd expect him to work at MegaSports. Completely arrogant, and equally clueless.
