    Outdoor range in IN

    I am currently looking for a good outdoor range here in IN (Indy). I have only been to indoor ranges. Please help.

    ProTEQ Firearms Academy | Brazil, IN 47834 about an hour west, but well worth the drive.

    Marion County Fish and Game is really close but no centerfire rifle. (near Speedway)
    Atlanta CC is good, and just north of Noblesville.

    Fall Creek CC up near Anderson is nice, as is Hoosier Hills down by Nashville / Gnawbone.

    I believe Marion County Fish and Game does allow centerfire rifle in the approved calibers. No 30-06 etc. But 357 mag 44 mag and other handgun calibers listed in rules are good to go.

    But those are not considered "Centerfire Rifle" calibers generally, they are centerfire pistol calibers that can be used in rifles and carbines, etc, and referenced that way for simplicity.

    In any case, as you stated, here's the list of calibers and the rules, etc for MCF&G. It is membership only. There is also information on the site about joining.

    I looked into MCFG because I live close. The requirements turned me off. I'm not interested in mandatory training classes or being put to work one day a year. I know a lot of people say this as an excuse, but I'm busy. Their range, their rules, but I'm not playing.

    I'm in the same boat as the OP. I used to go to a range in Illinois because my fiance lives there and she was a range member at a small range near her town. Illinois passed some Draconian laws recently that has driven them out of business. She's going to move here soon so I need to find a range.

    Here's what I'm looking for:

    -Private range that allows guests, fees ok.
    -100 yard rifle range minimum.
    -No forced membership in other organizations (NRA, etc).
    -An office that is open more than from 8 to 12 on Wednesday, or at least the capability to contact someone about membership. (lots of ranges seem to have outdated contact info).
    -No outside requirements other than paying yearly dues.
    -Thirty to forty-five minutes from Indy's west side. Represent!

    I don't care about camping, attending meetings, fishing, or any of the other trappings the ranges I've found seem to have. I just want to pay my dues and go shoot a couple of times a month.

    I think I am asking the impossible.

    Wilbur Wright in New Castle if you like a drive before you shoot.

    Sounds like you need to build your own range ... or make a few concessions on an existing range that is membership based.

    If you're willing to make some concessions, you might check out Crawfordsville Gun Club ... 3225 State Road 47 North / Crawfordsville, IN 47933 ... GPS 40.08657 , -86.81557.

    They have a pistol bay that allows you to shoot to 15 yds., a 100 yd range for any long range work you might want to do (centerfire rifle is o.k., but no 50 BMG or larger allowed), a 50 yd .22 LR only range, and a small informal trap program.

    All targets must be set at the backstop, so if you want to shoot closer than 100 yds you move your body closer to the backstop.

    Absolutely no steel can be set, but plastic spinners work nicely if you tire of paper targets.

    The yearly cost is $40. They have a strict "No Guest" policy, so if you wanted to bring along a friend, they'd have to join the club too.

    The club board meets the first Sunday of each month starting at 9:00 AM and are usually done by 10:00 AM. You can sign up for a membership before or after that meeting.

    As far as I am aware, the MCF&G Volunteer day is just that. Volunteer.

    You do have to go to one meeting to join, and the class thing was brought in some time back (after I joined), but it is now a requirement to take a class, but believe there are several different ones you can take.

    Other than the class aspect, it is pay your dues for the year and shoot.

    That said, if you are wanting to shoot centerfire rifle cartridges, then it would still be a no go.

    Well...the Winamac FWA range(which is free and VERY nice) would fill all your requirements... except the 30-45 minute one.
