So...wait...to clarify, they can accept 7.62x39. Not what it said on their website under "range rules."

I am REALLY liking the idea of a gun range with cheap regulated transfers and excellent hours.

Back now. It could have been something as simple as someone thinking they paid for the web hosting a year at a time but having it actually billed monthly, but not having things set up correctly.

Could have been a really small web hosting service that had a server go down. Could be that it would be better to use a more substantial service?

Using a host where the server is in the guy's garage?

The hosting side is the weakest part of the web, since any of us can buy hosting from a big company and then resell it, but not control the actual machines.

I thought a minor billing issue because I have seen that before, particularly near the beginning of a month. Did not mean anything by it.

No problem. Could have been a billing issue. After all, we are startup guys and, therefore, we are broke.

Is steel cased (Wolf) ammo allowed? That is mainly what I shoot for practice in my AR and some people say it is "steel core."

Just so I understand this correct
is the total cost $30 which includes the $10 MSP fee
or is it $30 + $10 for a total cost of $40??

thanks!

Google found you.

Mark et al,

Looks like your location now shows up correctly on Google Maps.
Or at least it does coming from a term search.
The sat image shows your building but the condo development is only a cleared lot.

Great guys, great range and I am thoroughly enjoying my membership.

Yes, we finally got on Google Maps, which means that we finally officially exist and are now regular human beings.

As I found out tonight, TULA brand ammunition has steel cores. (At least in .40S&W.)


Great range, the setup reminded me of Boy Scout camp, just 15 years newer. The people were extremely friendly and welcoming.

I have a couple of questions about the range.
1. What is the max distance of the shooting lanes?
2. Are more than one person allowed in a stall?
3. How many lanes do you have?
4. In your range rules you say "Shooters may only use FreeState Gun Range approved paper targets". Can you give an example?

I want to bring my son down soon (he's a non-shooter) and hopefully convert him.

Thanks
