    Default Looking for an outdoor shooting range with available memberships

    Both myself and my brother have been trying to join a range since before the scamdemic started and I can't get into one anywhere. I've got waiting list emails in at just about every outdoor range in the area that requires a membership and permits guests. No luck in almost a year.

    Are there seriously zero ranges available to join out there?

    Did you try Delaware County Field and Stream? In the past they never had membership limits. Don't know how it is now but you did need to get 3 members to sponsor you. Not hard to do if you go up on a weekend buy something from the snack bar and talk to people in the club house.
    Sticks and stones will break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.

    Why are all the awesome ranges so damn far away?

    I swear, if I hit that powerball jackpot, I'm opening up a knobb creek style range right here in my home town.

    Took my hunter safety course there years ago. Didn't realize you needed 3 sponsors. Are they even permitted by Herr wolf to have an open snack bar?

    New Holland has a wait-list every year, but we do allow guests to sign up for shoots at the range. We offer a lot of different events. If you log three visits in a year, you can get on the wait-list and have a real good change of getting picked for a membership.

    it a beautiful club and we run it well. A good team is in place and we are nothing but responsive to our members. If you would like to go as a guest of mine...let me know. Its less than an hour drive for me.

    Thank you for the offer and! Looks like a gorgeous range. Any specific reason behind the restriction on full auto use? I'm assuming it is an insurance/liability risk?
