    Default Looking for a good range in NW Lancaster County area

    So, I have lived in northwest Lancaster county for years, but have never really taken much interest in where all of the local ranges and clubs are. I recently purchased my first firearm (a pistol) and I am looking for a good local range where I can really spend some time learning my weapon. Anyone in the area know a good indoor/outdoor range that I can utilize on a fairly regular basis?

    I'm a member of Penn Dutch, inexpensive to join, lots of space, never had any issues up there.

    I just realized that I had said northeast Lancaster county. I meant northwest. Bit of a difference there. Edited the OP to reflect the stupid remark on my part.

    That seems like a real nice club out in New Holland. I would check it out, but it's nearly an hour away from home for me. I have no idea if we really have any others truly like it here in my area. I know there are a few around, but those I have heard of do not seem to be very favorable of those with pistols wanting to go shoot. I could be wrong though.

Any chance there are some local members that wouldn't mind dragging me out there to check it out? I live maybe 10-15 minutes away and would love something that close by.

    I belong to Mt. Joy and Conewago (just outside of Elizabethtown). If you want a tour of both an/or applications to either, I could help with that also. Let me know via a PM, I would be available most of the weekend.

    Another option is Columbia Fish and Game

    http://www.columbiafishandgame.org/index.html

    In addition to the outdoor ranges, they have an indoor range but NO handguns allowed indoors, archery and 22 rifles only.

    It's a shame the indoor range does not allow pistol, but I'm sure that is for a reason. Thanks for the info!

    Seems the backstop height is limited and handgun shooters are apparently more likely to put a round over the top and into the block end wall than a rifle shooter. Less accurate or the rifle is easier to control or something like that. Not exactly sure as I haven't been there long enough to see for myself.
