    The long awaited (by me because it is 5 minutes from my house) opening of a new gun range in Middletown happened Friday. My Wife and I went yesterday evening and I went with my neighbor again this morning.

    It is $18 / hr if you shoot pistol, $22 / hr if you shoot long gun. Not sure why long gun is more because you still shoot on one of the 20 available lanes. They also offer a Shooters Pass for $35 / month that allows unlimited shooting. You only have to go twice a month for this to be a good deal (for those of you that are mathematically challenged [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH AND SMILING EYES]).

    When we went Friday they asked if you needed a target. I said no as I carry shoot-and-sees in my range bag. Once we got inside, I noticed that they don't really give you enough cardboard to attach targets to:

    I went back out and bought a target for $1.05 including tax. They had many to choose from. After we shot it up, I attached my targets to it. You can bring your own cardboard or longer targets.

    The target system isn't fancy. It has a switch to send them out and bring them in. Distance is marked on the floor.

    It is well lit and well ventilated. I know you can shoot .308, but not .50.

    Overall not as fancy as OR, but a good place for the $$.

    They have a good selection of firearms for sale. I didn't see any great deals, but not butt rape prices. $500 Gen 3 Glocks and $540 - $550 Gen 4. They had a black Scar 17 for $2,999 which is close to Kygunco pricing. The FDE Scar 16 was +/- $2,600.

    Ammo wasn't cheap, but some reasonable for that type place. 9mm Midwest ball ammo was $233 / 1,000. Federal RTP 9mm ball ammo was $333 / 1,000. About every caliber made was in stock.

    The people that work there are mostly Veterans and very nice to talk to. The RO both last night and this morning was an older gentleman who seemed pretty laid back.

    There are three indoor ranges I know about.

    Point Blank on the Mall Road
    Mark's Guns on 25
    Shooter's Supply (I may be wrong on the name) near Independence. I think it's Richardson Road.

    I read through this thread twice and didnt see mention of it .. I have found a few (3) ranges up here in N.KY (Florence area) that offer indoor pistol but I am still looking for somewhere to shoot outdoors. I am wanting to build up a 308 or something larger for longer range fun but are there any ranges that offer 400+ yard shooting within a 2 hours drive of Florence? I would prefer 1000 yards eventually - I have shot at a max of 400 yards one time and I want to work my way out to 1000 yards eventually if I can find a range..
