It sounds like you want to get away from shooting paper at an expensive indoor range.

Have you tried Action Shooting?

I mean that to include any form of Steel shooting, or IDPA, or USPSA, or Three Gun, or Two Gun.

Where do you live? There are a lot of options for different kinds of Action Shooting all over the area.

This. I almost never shoot paper anymore, usually just Falling Steel, 3 gun, or long range matches

When I flew it, target practice ammo was $21 per round.

We would shoot 100 or 200 rounds each time we went to the range.

AND GET PAID TO DO SO.

Yup, add Cowboy Action Shooting.

There's also Gangster Era Action Shooting, and I myself used to shoot N-SSA, which is all breakable and reactive targets.


Shooting paper at an indoor "range" would bore anyone, unless they were really focused on developing some narrow skill-sets.

The problem with any Action Shooting is that it's addictive, and eats up a lot of ammo.

Compete, and / or look for a better club, PA or WV have a ton of them if you are close.

This is how our handgun range is set up, shoot from the deck with benches(or standing) or from the pit where you can move around. Lots of steel on the 25yd handgun and a few plates on the 200yd rifle range. It's Windsor Fish&game in York county, but PA being PA there are probably 5 other private clubs in the county, and a couple of thhe other ones have a lot more stuff. I compete at York Isaac Walton, much larger range with more pits, and a few others are similarly awesome.

I'm lucky in that I have access to my sister and brother in laws private land for both plinking and deer hunting. I only take advantage of this a few times a year during family get togethers. I need to get out and plink more often.
