    Default Trap/Skeet outdoor rifle range

    Hello,

    I just moved to Philadelphia from Vermont. I'm looking for a Trap club that also has an outdoor rifle range. This is a pretty common set up in Vermont so I'm hoping to find a good club here too. I would prefer something with a 200 or 300 yard range minimum, not sure if I'm asking to much though. I live in Manayunk, I'm still trying to figure out where everything is around here but I'm thinking Bucks and Montgomery counties are the best bet. Bonus if they have a pistol range but I seem to have no issue finding those around the city. Thanks for the help!

    JT

    Not real close to you and don't know range size but here's a start;

    Wheaties aren't made out of the same stuff today as they were 40 years ago.

    Lower Providence Rod & Gun club is in Oaks. Take the Schuykill west to KofP, then 2 exits on 422 West. About 30 minutes from Manayunk.
    Pistol ranges, 15 yard indoor and 25 yard outdoor
    Rifle range, 100 yards
    Archery, indoor and outdoor, 3D targets
    Trap field, 2 organized shoots per week, 2 manual traps for use too

    To be fair and honest...Lower Providence will actually take about 45-60 minutes...on a good day, from Philly. It is rare to get thru to 422 without a jam up. Also, they do not offer skeet. They do however have a terrific Trap field with 4 houses, and just had a major million dollar upgrade to the clubhouse and expanded the indoor 50’ range.

    Holmesburg Fish and Game is a jaunt up 95 at about half the drive time generally depending upon traffic and offers:
    Trap, Skeet, at least 100yd Rifle and Outdoor 50+yard and indoor 50’ pistol ranges. However, the trap and skeet range “field” is against a black curtain as there is some ongoing construction for the time being.

    Holmesburg fish and game is good. It’s a 100 yard outdoor range with a skeet and trap house inside a top 5 American city. It really is something-I mean what other major city can you name which has a hundred yard outdoor range in the city limits? It can and should be utilized more by enthusiasts in the city.

    The process is a bit tedious, but just show up on a Sunday morning and start the process.

    Pistol and rifle have a 5 shot mag limit and revolver cylinder limit, meaning you can’t have more than 5 in a mag or a cylinder to fire at one time. You can have 20 mags loaded with 5 rounds each, but that’s their rule. And empty chamber indicators to be used at all times.
