freds

So Freds has changed their policy you no longer have to buy their ammo to shot your gun at the indoor range. But if you rent one of their guns then you purchase their ammo starting Jan. 16th. Max two shooters per lane 25.per hour 75. for monthly membership

That is good news. They do have some good deals there at times and they usually offer a gift card good towards a free 1hour range visit with purchase of a firearm.

I have used their range and it is ok, nice electronic target controls/retrieval.... but lighting is not very uniform across all lanes or distances. I prefer an outdoor setting/ranges, but Fred's is not a bad option to have. I have heard many disparaging comments on this place. YMMV. On the handful of my visits (at their various locations over time), I have found their employee's customer service and friendliness does need some work.

However, hopefully this new policy will also translate into more reasonable and market competitive ammo prices. While I can understand a range may want to strictly control the type and quality of rounds being used, their previous prices were bordering on gouging and greediness.

Good news. I don't mind Myrtle Grove even in the snow, but my wife has a condition that cuts off blood flow to he fingers in the cold. I'll have to take her to Fred's.

I was just in Fred's last Friday and overheard a conversation between a customer and a rather loud talking gentleman working the range. The employee working the range said "no the only bullets shot in my range must come from me so if you need to go to your car and empty your magazines or your pockets then you need to do so now". Maybe I heard wrong but I would double check.

you would still think the employee would take that moment to advise customer of the upcoming new policy to deescalate things

What do you get for the $75 month membership?

Do you still need watch that stupid video and have the card?


Here is a question. I have a 1895 nagant that I want to shoot. I have about 500 rounds of ammo for it. Last time I was at Freds they don't have any and the guy I asked has never heard of it. Intact he looked at me like I had 2 heads when I asked for it. That being said if I go there tonight to. Shoot my nigant what will they say?

You are better off calling them ahead of time to as about shooting your specific gun and ammo.

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.
