    Default At which ranges can I "rent" guns?

    I recently moved near Elizabethtown, PA and want to purchase a gun. Before making such a purchase I was hoping to rent or use some different guns at a range to find one I like. Can anyone help me locate such a range please? Id drive up to an hour if necessary. Thank you.

    Thanks.

    I just heard from a friend that wants to join me and he's from Halifax. Are there any ranges where I can rent guns near Harrisburg or maybe Middletown so he doesn't have to drive as far to meet me? Thank you.

    I live close to Harrisburg and I drive to Trop when I want to go to an indoor range. There are closer gun clubs, but I don't know of any closer non-"members only" ranges nor any that rent guns.

    Last I checked Trop offers call-ahead lane reservations on the same day, which can be advisable during busy times (I've had to wait for a lane on a cold wet Saturday afternoon, although it's probably not bad during warm dry weather). They also occasionally run special events or classes or rent out whole the range for a private party so it's best to make sure it's open before you go, especially with a friend coming from far away.

    Google doesn't give much useful information other than a PAFOA thread from several years ago.

    Asking the question of locals who might know more know makes sense to me.
