I'm a member of River Bend Gun Club. Nicest facility I have ever been associated with. Except for the plinking ranges, all of the venues are NRA Certified for National Competition, including their 600 Yard High Power Range.

There is a range in Sugar Valley. It is part of the Chattahoochee National Forest.

What are the closest outdoor ranges to Austell/Marietta/Smyrna area?
I'm looking for handgun and long range rifle use.
Hot Shots Shooting Range, 2445 Austell Road, 770-436-6600
This is okay for pistols, I don't know about rifles. It's indoors so it's certainly not going to be long range.
Do you know any Marietta cops? The police range is on County Services Parkway.
I shoot at Hot Shots and buy my guns at Adventures Outdoors. I used to belong to South River but the drive is too long.
Can anyone shoot at the police range or must you be a cop?
Actually thats for cobb PD and as far as I know no you can not go there unless your with the PD. I know this because I am a Cobb PD Explorer
The closest outdoor range to Marietta is Creekside firing range check out www.creeksidefiringrange.com it is in Taylorsville SW of Cartersville.
Creekside is waaaaaay the heck out there. It was a 1:15 drive for me from Vinings/Smyrna. The range itself was decent (very muddy though and no paved road) but the range guy (early 20's?) had a serious attitude problem. Seriously, if he doesn't have anything nice to say, he should leave his customers alone. I paid my money and followed all rules but he was either really bored (nobody else was there) or just inherently an argumentitive prick.
There's a public range a little further up I-75 (same driving time though) called Chestnut Mountain.
Take exit 320 off I-75 and head WEST on Resaca Lafayette Rd/Route 136. After a few miles you'll reach the end and you'll be forced to turn either right or left. Turn RIGHT (I think it's still called Resaca Lafayette Rd/136) and go about 1000 feet and on your right side you will see a dirt road with a sign for Chestnut Mountain Rd. Take the dirt road and you'll end at the shooting range. $5 admission (in an envelope). Be honest. If not, the park rangers may check the payment box and see your car's license plate didn't pay. Then you will be in a world of pain.
I haven't tried the range in Adairsville yet.
Is there any outdoor range CLOSER to Smyrna/Vinings? I'm willing to pay for a membership but I don't want to drive more than 30 minutes.
Otherwise I may as well go to Chestnut Mt.
I had the same experience - I live in the same area as you do. So far the best place is South River. I was a member but it is too far and too expensive. I've gone there for IDPA.
Shooting is getting expensive when you add up the gas and cost of ammo these days.
Nice place. Kind of new. They have a pit for special training and a row of at least 10 stalls, covered from weather with electric cable target hangars.
Call for details. I'm sure there is rifle provisions also.

Does anyone know if the DeKalb County police range is still out in Lithonia and open to the public? I haven't been there in close to 15 years. Used to go with my dad about once a month when I was a kid. The only negative is its paper targets only, and 25yds is the closest range. I do like to be able to plink at tin cans, clay targets, etc. when I'm at an outdor range, paper is good for accuracy testing, but I like more interactive targets on ocassion.
