Outdoor Ranges in N. IL/S. WI

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for information on outdoor ranges, open to the public, in Northern Illinois or Southern Wisconsin. Specifically North/North West of Chicago.

 

Does anyone have any reccomendations?

 

Thanks!

Is their site serious when they say they only allow one round to be loaded at a time? That will get tedious very quickly.

Only one round per time for centerfire rifles. Pistol and rimfires can have 5 at a time.

I work there, and it is tedious. It's also there for a multitude of reasons. The main reason is rifle rounds leaving the range and striking homes a thousand yards away because of suburban commandos. If people would concentrate more on marksmanship than on being tacticool idiots rules like this wouldn't be needed. We have 100 firing lines. How safe do you think 100 people would be firing at will.

I didn't like the rule when I started going there, but it made me a better shot. Take it for what it's worth. It's a nice club with a very close knit community and if you seek out friends you will find plenty.

With the value of that property, you'd think they could cash in and move farther into the boonies. The butthurt suburbanites around there will drive you out eventually. Only a matter of time.

My only complaint other than the single shot, about Bristol, is the lack of toilet facilities. They have numerous portopotties but the femals I know are highly reluctant to use them. It is a good range though other than that and I have referred numerous people.

Sadly, I agree.
