    Walnut Creek -
    Keystone Gun Club -
    Gem City -
    Lawrence Park -

    Depending on which side of town you're on, Walnut Creek (west) and Gem City (east) both have outdoor ranges.
    I belong to Gem City; http://www.gemcitygunclub.org/ there is a range map and calender of events for you. Downside is indoor access is limited to open shoots.
    Keystone is very nice, and friendly, only indoor shoots, but anytime, so nice in winter, plus they have a PAFOA discount.
    Lawrence Park is nice, indoor shoots, anytime.
    Never been to Walnut Creek.
    The most dangerous place in America is a "gun free" zone.

    yeah, i'm real close to keystone which I'm considering to join just for the indoor range and the winter months here in Erie!

    There's another one I'm thinking about near Waterford....Erie County sportmen's league?

    Just looking for the place to call home besides dealing with the crowds at Sampson Rd. Nothing against that place but, when it comes down to it you get what you pay for definitely applies...

    Keystone is open to the public on Tuesday and Thursday nights, 10$ per shooter. I have been there a few times but have not joined yet. Nice place, never had to wait for a bench.

    JRY46 is a member at ECSL, PM him. I've not been to that one either, but I know they have an outdoor range.

    Walnut Creek has gone downhill. I did renew my membership there though just last month since it's so close to me and dirt cheap. I've heard a lot of great things about Gem City and even though it's 10x as far away for me (than Walnut Creek) I've been thinking about joining.

    ECSL is a nice club and you can get plenty of exercise walking 300 and back. I made about a dozen trips last weekend. I need a better spotter...or an all-terrain Rascal!

    Sweet! Wish I had some time to help out with the site. I'm a web tech. It funds my habits

    I'll have to make a run out there sometime soon for some info.
