    Can anyone recommend a certified Glock Armorer or a good gunsmith in the Raleigh area? I would be willing to travel some to find a good one. Also any good pistol range? outdoor perhaps? indoor if I have to.
    Thanks

    Can't help you on the armorer.

    For "walk in and shoot today", you're probably limited to Personal Defense & Handgun Safety Center. Indoor.

    Most outdoor ranges require memberships, or have limited operating hours.

    I agree. Personal Defense site is http://www.pdhsc.com/ and has 6 indoor lanes. It's $15 per session plus $1 per target if you don't have your own. They also rent pistols for $5 (provided you buy their ammo).

    I'm new to pistols, and took the intro course at Personal Defense. Renting the different guns allowed me to fall in love with the Glock 19.

    Now that I purchased my own, I've just gotten a membership at the Wake County government range in Holly Springs. Check out http://www.wakegov.com/firingrange/default.htm for more information. The next orientation class for the Wake range is this Saturday at 1:30 PM. The cost is $15 and it takes about 2 hours. Show up about 30 minutes early to register.

    Thanks Guys. I appreciate the information on the range and the gunsmith, and I'll be looking at the Wake county range as well.
    Thank You both.

    PDHSC requires that you purchase their targets. You can not use your own.*
    You have to buy at least one. You can then tape your own targets over the original.


    They offer a 'red card' membership for $40 that drops the price to $10 per visit for the lane fee. If you go once a month for a year, it pays for itself in savings.


    I have heard PDHSC has a decent smith, but at the same time, that is slow and somewhat expensive. I don't have any personal experience with him.

    His name is 'Cap' and he's worked on a few of my old man's guns. Good guy.
    FWIW, I have gotten more 'purple hearts' at this range than any other. Look out for ricochets!
