On Target?

Has anyone ever been to On Target Range in Severn, MD? Just heard about it today and trying to see if its worth a visit.

I used to go there a bunch. It is a decent place to shoot. I haven’t been in 12 years or so, but it looks like the same as it was. Cindy’s in Glen Burnie is decent as well.

On Target is sorta like a puppy mill for different shooters . It serves a purpose .

I used to go there a few years back. Always went during the workday, never on the weekend or evening. During the workday, it was ok. The lighting back then wasn't very good.

Do not take loaded mags - they must be empty. Has that changed?

I went and the guy behind the counter was rude to me. I haven't been back. Cindy's is much closer to me, and I like the place much more.

I’ve been a member there for about 5 years. I like it because it’s close to home and allows members to call in advance so they can get the next available lane when they arrive. They allow pistols and pistol caliber rifles. The maximum target distance is 25 yards and the minimum is 25 feet. They have rental firearms. You can use your own ammunition or buy theirs. No steel allowed. They have a decent selection of firearms and accessories at close to MSRP. The staff is their weak point. Mostly young and inexperienced with a good bit of turnover. Their location is also a drawback from a personal safety perspective. Lots of loitering around seedy looking strip mall stores and fast food restaurants. I limit my visits to daylight hours.

Welcome.

Though it seems you may be moving to Texas in the coming months, perhaps post here in the Introductions, so we can know you better:

On Target used to be good, I have not shot there in many years.

The range is ok and the folks behind the counter mean well, but they lack some basic customer service skills. They take safety very seriously, which I truly appreciate, but the way they approach folks about range rules is pretty unsettling.

I witnessed them scare two first time shooters out of signing up for classes, renting pistols and using their lanes. I felt awful and wanted to chase them out the door to apologize and tell them other places to go.

Their prices are also not great. They quoted me $120 above MSRP for a Walther CCP once.

Was a member for years. Stopped going when AGC opened up Steel for Pistol
I may renew again in the spring though.
I rarely had a problem and when I was a member I went almost once a week. Only time I had to wait for a lane (during work day) was when half the lanes were taken up by a class.
Cased guns
No loaded Mags with the gun
they have a list of rules you sign if you are not a member.

If you can case the gun with the action open and visible when you open the case, all the better.

I was there last week meeting up someone. They have almost no guns in stock

I've been there a few times and felt it was decent. The only thing I don't like is the minimum distance of 25 feet. I usually go to the range to work on my home/self defense skills shooting and like to practice as close as 10-15 feet.
