    Cool!...I shoot mostly outside. You might enjoy coming on a Sunday afternoon when the Juniors are shooting. lots of targets to shoot at, and folks shooting at the pit.

    After reading this thread I checked out Freeport’s site. Seems like a great set up with good people as members. Just might have to join up once my pistol license arrives.

    It is.

    So is LIGC.

    I'll teach anybody at any time (as long as he or she follows the four safety rules).

    looks like I missed you. I work the overnight shift these days and last night wasn't one of the better ones. I was tired and left early.

    If you didn't make it down, PM me and I'll try and work out a nice time to mwwt up with you.

    Thanks all. I am not a member of any range. I have only shot at Mitchell Field. I am considering Depot. I like to get to the range ar least 1x a week, so it would save me $$ even with the initial membership fee. I imagine the indoor lanes have to be at least as good as Mitchell Field, but 50 feet seems short. I normally only shoot 15 yards, but I am still a new shooter and imagine I would want to expand my range in the future
    1. Freeport is MUCH better than MF. That's not an insult, just a fact comparing an interesting private range to a uniform public one.

    2. I advise you to work on fast, accurate shots at close distances instead of trying to be accurate with slow-fire at a distance the weapons were not ready designed for.

    Thanks
    Good decision, enjoy.

    I'm the guy who does the Sunday tours. I'm usually there from 7:45-9:00 or 10:00. Stop by tomorrow and I'll be more than happy to show you around and answer any questions you might have.

    Peter.
