    That’s what I thought, 50 views and no one knows of another range.

    I can’t believe that as gun friendly as Indiana is that there are not more ranges. One on the north and south side should do pretty well but for some reason, no one has jumped on the opportunity. I wonder if it’s state/county regulations that keep it from happening, I have a hard time thinking it’s would be lack of interest.

    I went to a range at Johnson County Park yesterday. It's part of the immediate Camp Atterbury base area. Privately run, well maintained and 6 bucks an hour. Small pro shop available. They have rifle and pistol ranges. It is just off US 31 near Edingurgh.

    Thanks for the info.

    Unfortunately that’s pretty far from Hamilton County, it would take me over an hour and a half to get there. That would be okay for training or a match but not to knock off a box or two.

    My guess is that if it too hard to get to a range to practice that most people just don’t, that’s too bad.

    Look up Indy Trading Post. It's an indoor range, but you can't beat their range prices. $6 per 1/2hr, $8 for 2 people... even cheaper if you buy a 10 session pass. Sometimes that have a Groupon or Living Social deal... 10 range sessions for $30-35. I believe ITP is off Madison Avenue on the southside.

    I go to Parabellum Firearms in Avon, IN or, on occasion, I hit up Point Blank in Greenwood.

    95% of the time, MCF&G. The other 5%... Don's (is he still open... haven't been since he passed). My main shooting partner lives in Plainfield, and I live in New Whiteland... so those two are a pretty happy median for us to meet at.

    I've gotten WAY back into shooting matches and will be coming back to Indy soon. I spent some time on the MCF&G website, and it seems that their matches are open to non-members correct? I'm not sure I want to go with a full membership as I travel so extensively, and I'd want to check it out first. Are there any other places within an 1:20 or so? Atlanta CC and Wildcat are on my list, but even Wildcat is a bit far. Any decent outdoor ranges that don't require a membership so I could sight things in? Eagle Creek is no longer open to the public is it?

    You can't get here from there!
    A retired IMPD (back then it was IPD) motor cop has a range near Greenwood and offers NRA instruction. If you take one of his classes he allows you to use his range for free when he's not teaching a class. He even supplies the targets and has a jar in the range building for donations for range upkeep. It's an outdoor range.

    Jim is good people.

    Nice range but too expensive. I go to Deer Creek conservation club in Grant county 10.00 for as long as it’s light out or 150.00 a year.
