I agree, my nephew was in there today and he was able to describe the guy to me by saying the guy who spoke incredibly loud for no reason and kinda rude yeah that's the guy.

I like Fred's because it's convenient but the customer service is hit or miss especially for us newbies

Also you only have to watch the range safety video once (prior to 1st use). If you have shot there before, Fredís should have your name on record. You can also watch the video from home but be sure you print out the training certificate at the end.
I went many years ago (pre fire) and watched the video, went the other day watched the video again just because and the young lady working the range said "oh you're already in our system so you didn't have to watch the video again you should've said something"

You think they would let me shoot my 50 bmg in the range?

What I really want to do is take my girlfriend youngest son (20) to the range so he can shoot a few of my toys.

I want to get him to m.g. where. There isn't any restrictions on size but it has been too cold and nasty he goes back to college in a few weeks.

Nawwww.....that would be too much like the right thing to do. I am so glad to be out of the Soviet Socialist Republic of MD. Miss my friends and got some family left there. Glad you guys have an indoor facility that you can shoot at, even if their is a lot of BS that goes with it.
Down here in sunny Fl, 3 indoor, one outdoor with a 200 yard rifle range within half hour drive. 5 Indoor if you extend it to a 1hr drive. For a gun owner and shooter, its like gun heaven. Plus when you walk outside of the air conditioned range, its like 75 degrees.....in the winter.

I was joking about the 50. Only a few ranges are able to handle that kind of round.

When there was the one over by dmv in the roofing company building. They would get nervous when I would shoot my 375jdj handgun there. I had to download it and use cast bullets.

The only rounds I would like to use right now would be my 7.62x38r, 40, 9x18, 9x19, 45acp and maybe 7.65x25.

Unfortunately it's Fred's. I rarely say negative things about local gun shops but I have no use for that place or their little attitudes. Just my opinion.

Where's the like button Got a couple of good deals at their fire sale then bought a gun when they were at the other location in LaPlata. Told me I had to purchase a barrel lock from them even though I had one for the particular caliber. I won't be going back.
