    Just south of Canonsburg is Ace sporting goods http://www.acesportinggoods.com/ , and a range to check about a half hour north is Coraopolis sportsman club. http://www.cdsc.us/

    I too appreciate all thin help since Im new to the area as well.

    I will caution the OP though to NOT shoot at "Anthony Arms" indoor range located in West Mifflin.

    Its ran by a bunch of A-holes and its really a rip off in price to shoot there.

    I'm new to the forum, and hoping you could help me out. I just learned that PA now requires you to buy a $30 license or possess a valid hunting license if you are going to use the ranges on the state game lands. Since that is about the same as annual dues at the Cansonsburg Sportsmen's Association, I'm thinking of joining there. Does anyone belong to the Sportsmen's or know anything about it.

    Thanks

    I thought I'd offer some more detail.

    The stores mentioned above are good. Ace is the largest in the area. There are also some smaller shops in the area such as Gun Runner, and Johnson's Sporting Goods.
    There is a Cabela's not too far away south.

    Coraoplis is pretty far from Cannosburg.

    Dormont Mt. Lebonan Sportsman's Club (DML) is probably the biggest around, beside McDonald Sportsmen's Club.
    I'm a member of DML and it mostly an older crowd. They don't do any IDPA or run and gun events, nor do they allow you to draw and shoot from a holster. They are very focused on marksmanship. Bullseye, small bore rifle, High Power, CMP, Silhoutte, air pistol, all the NRA events. You have to be a member to attend.

    McDonald does USPSA, Cowboy action events among others. I don't know if the events are open to the public, something I've been meaning to check on.

    I actually tried to get into several clubs in the area when I moved to Washington County, but DML was the only one that I didn't have to know someone to get in or get stonewalled when I called about membership.

    Pitcairn Monroeville Sportsmen Club is another good club, but they are pretty far away.

    I hope this helps.

    A&S Indoor Pistol Range in Youngwood is nice. It's about 45 minutes east. Take me a little longer than that to get there from the city but it's really the only decent range around. That I know of anyway.
