    Brookhaven issues

    Brookhaven is a nice range, but why are there always issues?

    Directly from their website:

    We are open Wednesday thru Sunday
    from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM
    (Seasonal: Skeet & Trap Fields open
    Thursday Nights until 9:00 PM)

    I called to be sure.

    The skeet & trap fields are NOT open until 9:00 PM on Thursday. (When exactly IS the season?)

    They are NOT open until 4:30. They close at 4:00.

    Again, this is not hearsay or hours listed on Google. This is directly from their website!

    I haven't been there in years and the range caught up to the town nickname (CROOKHAVEN)

    I finally went to Yaphank for the NRA Basic Shotgun shoot, ran two rounds of trap then meet up with Yaphank Kid for a round of skeet...GO THERE!

      Usually do. Yaphank is great AND there were no issues during the scamdemic.

      Brookhaven is for shooting rifle and/or pistol also or if I need to be on the North Shore.

      Plus they have the nicest trap public field on Long island.

    They probably close at 4:30 but won’t let you start after 4.

      sickofny I get that , however, they can simply say so on their website. Close 4:30 last trap/skeet game to commence at 4:00 simple. These ‘ranges’ here all suck. Your moniker says it best!

      The last two times I was at Brookhaven, they made you stop shooting promptly at 4:00. You then had a little time to collect your targets and pack up your stuff but as far as the RO’s were concerned, they were closed at 4:00.

      The Islip outdoor Town range is the same way. It says 10 to 3, but that only means the RO's want to be locking the gate at 3. Final cease fire is really 2-2:15 pm.

    Night shooting is over at Brookhaven. They don't do it anymore.

    Went there twice. Once for skeet once for rifle. Both times was the same, grumpy old men who like being important. Unless you are also a grumpy old man you are treated like a nuisance until proven to be otherwise.

      These range ‘issues’ most of us have heard many times. Some of us look at it objectively from both sides of the glass. The real issue is attitude. I have been to many ranges (maybe not as many as a pro) down here , upstate and throughout other states. I have heard many colorful safety briefings. The issue is the attitude of the RO’s or quite possibly the ownership/management. I get 💯 we get more then our fair share of crazy yahoo’s in Newyorkastan but part of being responsible for watching people is learning how to read people. Most RO’s either have it or they don’t. Like in the rest of America we build safety nets around the stupid and don’t educate/empower the masses like we should. Rant over

        That's sad.

        What's even sadder is that the range hasn't removed that from their homepage.

          Whatever happened with the round that allegedly went into the fireman's section a while back?

          Was that ever deemed to be nonsense?

            The pistol line is still closed presumably from that made up incident

          They should build condos they have ranges in the back and you can shoot right off your terrace! They have them for boaters.
