    Living in Lansdale, Target World is pretty convenient for me. It's also where I've purchased all of my firearms so far as Lisa in the store there is experienced in doing paperwork/background checks for non-citizens/VISA holders plus is patient with me (longest check took 3 hours to come through!)

    I joined the range and think it's a really nice facility. I've yet to really meet a "Range Nazi" and i think i know all the RSO's now... they are pretty good at enforcing rules like "bags in booths" or poor weapon handling and are quick to inform people when their targets are too high. Other than that they are fairly decent blokes and I often stop to chat/banter after shooting.

    Ammo is pretty reasonable. They often have either CCI or Fiocchi 115gr 9mm for less than $10 a box

    I was in there on Sunday and coincidentally asked about the Pistol brace/SB Tactical ATF letter and they said "it's fine".

    I've shot at Clayton's once and came away with the impression it's old, a little grubby, crazy busy and LOUD! My GF had to leave the range as she couldn't handle the noise (guys either side of us shooting AK pistols)

    Yes, I'm British... But I have good teeth!

    I've been to Target World four times in the past month; three times with my 13 year old son, once by myself. On our first visit they gave us the usual safety speech (politely, I might add) and asked us to draw what it looks like when acquiring a proper sight picture. Then they had us use a laser training pistol to prove we could hit a target. All in all, took 10 minutes and we haven't had to do it since.

    On our subsequent visits everyone has been polite, if not somewhat taciturn, and we never wait for a lane, even on weekends.

    Unfortunately they are a good 30 minute drive from my house, whereas Clayton's and Classic Pistol are right around the corner, and cheaper. However neither Clayton's nor Classic Pistol are as nice as TW.

    I haven't been to French Creek, but I have to agree with your reviews of Clayton's and Target World. I kind of enjoy the rigidity of the rules and super cleanliness of Target World, but it's a little far for me unfortunately. Clayton's seems relatively relaxed, but not so much that I've ever felt unsafe or unsettled while shooting there. Definitely two very different places, but both that I enjoy shooting at very much.
