first, are they open?

second, are they packed with people?

I'd love to sneak off to a range on a nice spring day but i bet every other yahoo out there like me has the same idea

Mine is shutdown so I use the one at the camp.

I’m thankful to have an outlet.

The range I go to is only open to the public Thur afternoon thru all day Sunday.

Went shooting pistols with the wife on Tues, I shot rifles on Thursday. Didnt see a soul either day, but its always like that when I go on members only days. When I go alone, I usually get there at sunrise, so no real surprise there.

Going to the skeet range tomorrow, they are still open.

All the ranges around here are, but matches/meetings are cancelled.

Hawk, does your range have a range marshal ?

Until about a week ago, my local range was open and pretty crowded. When the dipchit governor shut down everything, the ranges shut too. The ones near my old place in California are shut down too and I got an email from one of them begging for donations to be able to pay their bills whilst they are shut down.


Thank you, Mr. Bin.

I'd say the range is one place where social distancing has always been in effect

My rifle ranges closed today per order of the governor. Very unfortunate decision for me, as I had been going regularly and was basically solo, save for the 2 or 3 regulars in pistol pits. Decision greatly contributes to the boredom of current everyday life.

Angeles Shooting Range has been cold for at least a couple of weeks.

Our's is open, but it's not a supervised range anyway. Plus I have a back window to shoot out of.

Public ones are closed. Thankfully I am a member at a private range, they are open and not near as many idiots.

Ours is open, if it’s not raining or maybe if it is, I’m going in the morning.


People would have less skepticism in their government if the press had more.

I went up the road to the National Forest this morning. There's a road with unofficial "ranges" sprawled out all over the place. Went in a ways and picked a nice 50 yard spot I had used a couple times before. My social distancing was maybe a quarter mile to the next closest group though there were dozens of people out shooting today. Some folks were going at it full auto so no ammo shortage there.

There aren't any public ranges around here. I've been shooting in my back yard as usual.
