    Seems the Georgia section here isnt really all that active. Just wondering which range(s) you guys and gals visit most frequently. For me, it's American Classic Marksman because it's the closest to my home.

    I go to Bullseye in downtown Lawrenceville. It's $5 per lane for the first 30 minutes and $3 every 30 minutes after that. That beats $16 a person every single time and usually they will round down for the 30 minute mark. I usually leave with an $8 bill after buying a few targets. They always listen to my noobie questions and don't act like a bunch of jerks like the American Classic Marksman on spalding drive in Norcross that I've been to.

    Mostly Bull's Eye at lunch time during the week. When I worked in Norcross, ACM had a lunchtime special for ~$8. ACM also has a lady's night once a week where the lanes are free to use for the ladies. I think that's pretty cool.

    ed's gun on hwy 5 it is now ( nick's guns )
  6. I drive either an hour north to outdoor ranges at Chestnut Mtn. WMA near Resaca or an hour south to Advanced Bullets in Temple.

    I've yet to go to an indoor range in metro ATL that has anywhere close to decent ventilation, and I hate those nasty sweet lead flavored lugies in my sinuses the rest of the day.

    Plus, I like popping 2x10 blocks at 100 yds with the G23 :supergrin: And, the redneck mercenaries are always good for the entertainment factor.

    You ever been to Hot Shots in Smyrna?

    And how many unjacketed bullets do you shoot on a regular basis?
  8. Several times. Maybe they just don't turn the system on when there are only 1 or 2 people in there. Besides, the last time I was in there, I got muzzle swept twice by both the guy behind the counter, and a Cobb Co. Sheriff's deputy looking at the gun. I'll not be returning to that store again.

    No unjacketed bullets. Maybe it's something besides lead, but it's sickeningly nasty.

    Nick's guns. SCC we should shoot together sometime and help defer the cost over there. Last week I went and shot for an hour. After everything was totaled up it set me back 50 bucks.

    Up until the end of last year I shot down at the Clayton County Sheriffs Dept range. However, walking small..err I mean Sheriff Victor Hill turned the range over to the Clayton County Police Dept. I guess his plan to take over the Clayton County Police Dept has failed. What a dolt. (Sorry, rant mode off).

    During the week I shoot at Master Gunman in Stone Mountain. When I really want to throw some lead downrange I head to Charlie Elliott WMA in Mansfield.

    I normally shoot at Bullseye Marksman in Cumming or I go to Adairsville Shooting range if I feel like scaring clays.

    I have been to ACM the most recently. I agree they can be less than friendly but given the other customers I have seen there lately I don't blame them. I stay as professional as possible and don't try to make small talk.

    Bullseye in Lawrenceville is better and the class 3 rentals are fun. My 11 year old and I spent a little time with their FA 9mm colt carbine. :cool:

    Mastergunman are good people and worth a visit next time you are
    near Stone Mtn park.

    For outdoor ranges I'm split between the WMA range up 985 and Advanced Bullets out I20 near Alabama. Are there any outdoor ranges closer to the Suwanee / Johns Creek area?

    I shoot at Nick's as well. That is when I can find time for the range, which is rarely lately.
  17. Bull's Eye LLC in St Louis $18 an hour but indoor range with automated targets and well run OR Jay Henges Shooting Range - an outdoor range that is part of a MO State Conservation District - free targets and $3 an hour per generous booth - can share. That's close to work and CAN be a long lunch if my schedule permits.
