Range 82

I took a tour today of a membership only range that is close to my house called Range 82.

This facility is used by federal and local agencies for training primarily. During the day, because of this, Monday thru Friday, reservations are required between 7:00 AM and 4:00 PM (Shooting begins at 9:00 AM).

General Membership Evening Hours:

- Tues. (handgun),
- Wed. (rifle),
- Thur. (handgun),
- Fri. (Special events, Groups)
- Saturday (handgun)
     12:00 PM - 3:00 PM  Pistol range only (25 yard line and in)
- Saturday (rifle)
     3:00 PM - 6:00 PM  Rifle range only (100 yard line and in)
- Saturday shooters RSVP by phone or e-mail by 10 AM

The facilities are currently closed Sundays.

I had emailed ahead and lined up a quick tour and talk with Lee Hollander, one of the owner/operators of Range 82. He was awesome.

The only negative I could see was that there was no skeet shooting. There is a small airport just up the street! What could go wrong?
Lee was telling me that their primary business was as government firearms training facility and the evening and weekend membership is recent. At only 55 members so far the range is never crowded. I will give it a try!

--And it's close to my house!

A member can have up to six guests at one time. $16 per guest. Reservations are required so lane availability is not an issue.
