    Default Ranges with Rentals - Franklin County area

    Does anyone know of any places/ranges in Franklin County that have rentals? My wife and I are in the market for some different firearms (Glock 19, 1911s, Ruger LCR, to name a few) but would like to do some test runs before we spend the money. Any info would be appreciated!
    If zombies start chasing us, I'm going to trip you.

    Or you could go to the range with one of us one day and try some other guns.

    Shoot me a PM

    I was at Shooter's Range yesterday. A couple of the lanes are closed for repairs. You can't beat the price. Three of us rented two lanes for an hour and it was $33.
    I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy. Hippie and 3%er.

    Evan, did they have Lane 1 (rifle lane) fixed yet? Glenn has been telling me for months that it would be fixed "soon" but there hadnt been much progress.

    Some of the cables that run the targets back and forth were becoming nearly inoperable, glad to see they are getting fixed.

    717-262-0060 is the number for Shooters Range.
    Armalite AR-30, 6 AR15's, Glock 30, Rem 700 SPS Tac .308, 12GA, Yugo AK47 UF, AK47.

    I'd be happy to let you shoot my 1911 and Kel-Tec P3AT (similar to the LCR). My 1911 has a 'commander length' barrel (4.25"), is striker fired, and has Para's unique "Light Double Action" trigger system, so it's not exactly like some other 1911s, but it would give you an idea on weight, recoil, etc. You could come as my guest to my range (outdoor), and there would be no cost to you.

    Wow, I didn't know that. Not sure I like the idea but certainly want to try it some day.

    Datalogger, the rifle lane is still closed. And one of the lanes we used was having some problems with the cable feeding in and out, but we still had a great time.
