I would like to start a POI for GUN ranges in the USA.
I have a few started for Tennessee and I see another or 2 in the POI files here.
I would like to make one for all the US since you can shoot in most states as you travel.
So If you know of one that is open in your area Please email the info.
I would take them from the net but I can not confirm if they are open/current or not.
I think you've got a good idea. The problem is that many of them are "Member Only" and you have to pay annual dues to join. I belong to two and neither will permit the public to shoot. It may have to do with insurance.
Yes, good idea. Good point too.. so maybe just include the non-membership ones if they don't allow 'walk-ins' even for a fee?
Gun ranges is a good idea. Even membership only ranges tend to have ways for travelers to take advantage of them ($$$).
I wonder if it's possible to write a program the queries Google for gun ranges, uses the address to reverse look up GPS coordinates, then creates the POI table. This could be used for almost any POI.
Just a thought,
Jen, yes there are a few ways to do that but I agree that a personally verified list is a better way to do it. (Also see the post here about 'POI Accuracy for reasons why).
But I'm sure if we all submit our own known good locations & details, we could have a super-nice detailed file in no time!
Their a very nice rage here in southeast georgia at the Bullard Creek Wildlife Managenemt out side of Hazlehurst Georgia it's open 7 day's a week... I've listed the longitude and latitude below....31.941320, -82.493677
jeffssig- I sent you an email about MD/VA
Thank you CJ and JD.
My wife, age 64, just started target shooting and is very, very good. She has a carry license and would be happy to have such a POI.
I think I covered most of NY in my email to you.
Thanks DT. I got them along with a few others.
Sent a good range. Good luck!
Rio Salado Sportsmans Club
3960 North Usery Pass Road Mesa, AZ 85207-9702
Ben Avery Shooting
4044 West Black Canyon Boulevard, Phoenix, AZ
These are both open to the public and charge a nominal (around $5) fee per day for shooting.
If I find more, I'll post them.
Be careful crossing State lines with a weapon. There are some States with very strict gun laws and you could end up in the slammer !!!!!!!
I have 4 POI's with gun shops, ranges, accessories within Canada and the US.
I will upload them shortly.
Thanks everyone. Ill have a file soon to upload.
Parado Olympic Shooting Park, where they held the 1984 Olympics. This I believe is only Shotgun on one set of ranges and pistol on another.
17501 Pomona Rincon Rd
Chino Ca. 91708
22100 E East Fork Rd
Azusa, CA 91702-1454
I just found this site. Might be helpful.
Unless you have a New York State L.C.P. (License to Carry Pistol), STAY OUT They refuse to recognize another states CCW.
It's interesting that 38 states will recognize Florida's CWP.. yet New York City won't even recognize NY upstate licenses.
Stumbled on this place in my recent travels. Unique for the full auto rentals:
Jackson Indoor Shooting Range
2310 N Highland
Jackson, TN 38305
Not if you comply with the federal Firearm Owner Protection Act, i.e. FOPA. That allows you to pass through states such as NY/Illinois and areas such as DC with firearms. Even ones illegal in those states/areas. Just have to be good to go (legally able to possess) at your starting/ending point, can't stop "long term" in the offending state/area and you must transport them unloaded, not easily accessible, etc through said states/areas.
Only one I didn't list was Hoffmans Gun Center

I was looking for another I've been to which is near lake Piru. I think this is it:
While searching, I found this website. You'll need to covert all these from address to coordinates though.
LOOK IN TX FOR GUN RANGES
If you haven't already seen this in the emails sent to you:
An excelent file with Maryland ranges.
...also include the "distance" of each range. I am looking for a 300-400 yard range. POI for USA gun ranges is a good idea...cz
This sight might be a helpful source.
I have not been on here in a while and just saw this thread.
Never knew this post existed. thanks
GOOD SOURCE OF STUFF
I fully agree, that would be great!
Live in TN and few and far bewteen.
But I could get some data to start.
There is an article in American Rifleman magazine this month that reports how people transporting completely legal hand guns have been arrested in both New York's LaGuardia and Chicago's O'Hare airports on a felony firearms possession. After getting a lawyer they bargained it down to disorderly conduct. Just another way for gun hating politicians to harass gun owners.
Most ranges in my area that are open to the public charge about fifteen dollars or more a day to shoot. My son belongs to a range in Baraboo, WI that is about ten miles from Wisconsin Dells, a huge tourist area that people from surrounding states will spend a week's vacation. There are three stores in Baraboo that for thirty dollars you can get an instant years membership complete with a key and a membership card. The range has trap, skeet, and 25, 50, 100, and 200 yard ranges. Is this something you would want to include in your POI?
This map is good to use to determine which states accept your handgun permit. Just select the state that issued your permit and if it is a resident or non-resident and it will show the states where it is accepted.
I just received an emailfrom a friend about an app for where2shoot. The website has a searching page.
Hope this helps. Ability to search by zipcode and state.
