    Springs Road Gun Club is where I shoot some. Does anyone else go there to shoot? It is a pretty good indoor range.

    I go to a range that's a bit closer.:supergrin:

    Bout 50 steps out the back door.

    Springs is nice and about the only indoor game around.

    IIRC, it is gonna be near the Lincoln House, @ the old bowling alley... can't find much about it other than the zoning request was approved...

    I wish I could shot out the back door. I think the neighbors would be a little upset.

    I live in Marion and have been to On Target in Asheville a couple times, I have been thinking about checking Springs Road out. It is probally about the same distance of a drive just the other direction on 40.

    I just moved to Sherrills Ford from PA, and will probably be checking out the Springs Road facility this coming weekend. I looked for it this past weekend, but turned around before I made it there only to have the wife complain about me driving around aimlessly...:faint:

    Sounds good. Welcome to the area. It is kinda hard to spot at first. There is a gas station at a stop light. There is a store in the backside of the gas station that is called, not just archery. The range is down stairs. They have some stange hours, so I would call before you make the trek.

    I live in West Lincoln Co. Got a "range" about 8 miles from the house that I go to. It's nearly abandoned, you get a key to a gate and can shoot anything you want. It's not a very long range though. It's outdoors but has a covered shooting area.

    Glock19xdsc, I work in Terrell. I'll give you one guess where, and it's not the bait shop.

    Tell her you weren't driving around aimlessly. You were driving around looking for the point she'd start b#tchin' and you found it!

    It is a public range. Something like 10 bucks and hour to shoot. You can shoot pretty much anything except for how powered rifles. Anything rim fire, shotgun, or pistol. Probably has 15 lanes. Not a bad place. I just wish I had somewhere that was FREE and outdoors.

    Which way are you coming from? The north I guess? I think there is an outdoor range futher up springs road, but I think it is private.

    I actually live in durham. my parents live in troutman and i'll be in town to visit near the end of the month. A friend of mine in charlotte and I are gonna get together and go shooting somewhere as soon as we can find a reasonable place. We used to shoot at Duncans in North WIlkesboro, but their range only goes out to 25 yards. we wanted something with a little more distance.

    Duncan's is not a bad place either. All of the indoor ranges I have been to were 25 yards though. I am sure you can find something outdoors though.
