Curious as to prices.

Postby Greg Wile » Tue Aug 16, 2005 1:19 pm

I have been invited to join a local gun club at the huge expense of seventy five spondoolies a year. This is an outdoor range but they offer skeet, rifle, handgun, black powder, and sporting clays. The range is only a 10 min. drive from my place and one of my neighbours is a member. So what do you guys think, is it a bargain?

You can't put a price on fun. With the price of Gas these days it sounds like it is close, would provide lots of fun, I would say its a bargain!

A membership out here will run you $60-$65, and on average $3 extra for a round of trap or skeet.

Is it september the 8th yet???

The last membership I bought was $125, and you had to pay $5-$10 every time you went to use the range.
I think you have a bargain there.................................. :eek:

I used to pay $5 a gun each time I went to the range.....mostly used it for sighting in the deer rifle....

I think I paid $125 for my membership at the local sporting clays club, which knocks the price down to $.30/clay from $.38/clay. I usually shoot 125 of them. Add in the cost of shells and it's over $70 for the day. Probably another $10 in gas getting there. Damn fun though.

Yeah, I think my "EPM" (Executive Park Member) membership was like $120 US/year.

But you could also shoot before and after hours which is a HUGE plus!

You had to pay for clays, but it was a discounted price.

You found a bargain! :thumbsup:

A trap club can really help you shot better. In Reno Nv. we have Skeet,Trap,Doubles,5 stand , Sporting clays & Heli clays. Skeet & doubles are great for "reaction" shoting. Trap for proper gun mounting & gen. mech. 5 stand & sporting clays give you ALL the field angles .
In two years I went from B to an AA shooter in the ATA. I average 96 out of 100 clays on a bad day. Ask & we will tell U all...Enjoy....Ed
