    The title says it all!!!! Post if you live, or are from the Charlotte area. And where do you typically shoot, I shoot at Firepower Inc in Matthews, right outside of Charlotte. Great prices and great people. Nice to see some fellow North Carolinians!!! Thanks, smitty704

    I usually shoot at Elite in Indian Trail. I've shot at Eagle in Concord once. Eagle is closer but due to my schedule, Elite is where I end up as most ranges are closed on Sundays.

    I was raise in Charlotte, but now live north of Mooresville. I mostly shoot on land my wires family owns in VA, but have been wanting to try the new range that was just opened on 150 in Mooresville. Heard anything about it?

    Not in the Charlotte area any longer but years back I used to shoot at The Firing Point in Pineville. I heard they closed and with no one mentioning them I guess they are still closed.

    Lived there for 10 years (moved to upstate SC 5 years ago). Still shoot at Firepower on occasion when visiting friends.

    I am up Hwy 16, Maiden / Denver area

    Went by the new range ( Point Blank ) when it opened up.

    I shoot at Springs Rd Gun Club in Hickory

    Family rate is only $235 a year ( I have the wife and 5 boys ) compared to the $650 rate at Point Blank.

    Been shooting at The Ballantyne Range in Fort Mill, SC. I like them a lot but I really want to find a good outdoor place to shoot steel, melons, 2 liter bottles (think Hickok45) and all kinds of stuff. I'm happy to clean up after my barrage, but I'm originally from Texas and we would just go out and shoot almost anywhere outside of town.

    Not in Charlotte, but very close: Belmont in Gaston County.
    I usually shoot at Shooter's Express.

    Shooter's Express seems to be an indoor range just like the 20 other indoor ranges in Charlotte. Anyone else have suggestions for OUTDOOR places to shoot close to Charlotte (plinking and doing my own things - not at a range necessarily)?

    Charlotte here, mostly shoot indoors at Blackstone. I think there is an outdoor range on the gamelands in the Uhwarie. Other than that it's with friends on private land.

    Almost forgot, because I haven't been yet. There's a new outdoor range this side of Shelby. I think 300yard rifle, 100 yard and some pistol. My buddy likes it. No steel ammo though.

    Ok thanks. Do you have the name of the place? That's always helpful.
