Mr. Burton and others if you can let me know the best range in the nearby area I would greatly appreciate it.

Nothing too crazy needed. Much prefer outdoor and rarely shoot past 100 yards.

Need to sight in a few rifles and pistol, and would love to be able to introduce the wife to shooting before going back overseas.

I've read reviews online but still can't get a good feeling about which I should visit first.

12 years to retirement! Just waiting!

If you can live with just pistols and PCC then check out Monocacy Pistol Club in Frederick. It is fantastic and dirt cheap. Good members, I miss them which is one of the few things I miss from my time up there.

Next door to MPC is Cresap Gun Club. Open to public on weekends, rifles and pistols. A bit on the range nazi side so I stopped going but being open to the public it is understandable.

Up in Thurmont there is another range. I can’t think of the name but there are a bunch of them. We have all heard of them. As soon as you say it I will go “that’s it”.

I live near you and used to go to On Target near Fort Meade. It became a little run down and I haven't been there in a while. It is not bad during the weekdays but it gets crowded on the weekend. It is just a pistol range and also allows pistol caliber rifles.

I went to Guntry in Owings Mills a few years ago after it opened for business. It is a very nice indoor pistol and rifle range and is well run.

I also go to an outdoor range that is about a 90 minute drive on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. It is open to the public and is a decent range.

The NRA range in Virginia is about a 90 minute drive. It is a well run indoor pistol and rifle range.

If you want to shoot sporting clays, this is a nice place on the Eastern Shore:

This is a closer shotgun sports facility and is worth a visit:

All of these places are open to the public.

I think On Target is closed right now. Info I heard was that Cindy's in Glen Burnie bought On Target and it is in the process of a major renovation.

I used to go to Clark Bros in Warrenton, VA with my bro-in-law.

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."
