    Default New to shooting, looking for a good range.

    Hey all I live in Pittsburgh and new to the shooting game. Any suggestions on a good range? I've had enough of the Wexford gamelands, too many knuckleheads and people calling clear ever five minutes.

    To be honest I am looking for a place I can shoot in peace and sight in my rifles.

    Thanks
    Don

    What part of Pittsburgh are you in? There are a few clubs around that usually don't draw big crowds. Just depends what you need or want. CDSC comes to mind as a good place to sight-in in peace: http://www.cdsc.us/

    You might want to check out the Dormont/Mt. Lebo Sportsmen's club. In spite of the name the ranges are located near McMurray on Linden Ave. The ranges are nice with a pistol, rifle, bench rest and plinking. Costs $75.00 per year and worth every penny.

    +1 one on this.
    After checking out several clubs in my region, I opted to drive a little further for this club. I've been a member for several months now and will be renewing for next year.

    PMSC

    I dont know what kind of shooting you do, but look into the rules and whats allowed before you decide where to put on the short list.

    To be fair, I've never been to Dormont/Mt. Lebo Sportsmen's club, but I just read over their rules...

    "No holster play" (No drawing from a holster? That's retarded)

    After then reading the text about the rifle range and the "plinking" range, methinks they would frown upon anyone with anything more than a bolt action rifle.

    If by "work with my AK" you mean have a shooting bay all to yourself where you can safely practice all sorts of shooting including "on the move" and "up close" - then I suggest PMSC as well.

    I don't know why they aren't noted on the club website, but aside from the pistol and rifle ranges shown, there are a handful of additional shooting bays available as well. Unless there is some sort of organized event taking place, I doubt you'd ever be unable to get a bay to yourself.

    Come check out the next pafoa group shoot at PMSC on the second Sunday of December. If you want more info about that, just ask!
