    As I was driving between Kutztown and Hamburg yesterday I saw what looked like a really nice shooting range just off the road. Since I’ll be driving by there every so often with my son going to Kutztown I think I’ll stop by next time and check it out. Any PA members know that range?

    It’s a few miles from Cabelas on a really windy road. You’d never see it unless you were driving to the college. I will just have to stop next time.

    I'm lucky enough to have a few indoor and outdoor ranges up where I live in Montgomery County...


    ( That last review doesn't look too promising... )

    :rolleyes:

    I know, right?! I have no shortage of ranges close to me, was just thinking out loud about maybe having another purpose to the 2 our drive (one way) we'll be making somewhat regularly taking my son back and forth to school come fall. Membership is only $30/yr. I'll definitely stop and check it out next time

    Copy that...

    I'd give it a " shot " too, if I was going past it anyway...

    Let us know how it is...

    Hey Rich,

    I belong to Hamburg Rifle & Pistol Club.

    All the ranges are North Facing, and they have a Steel Challenge event every Month!

    Dues are cheap. http://www.hamburgriflepistol.com/

    President is Tim Fischer. A really great guy.

    Later, Mark

    Thanks Mark
    Hamburg Rifle & Pistol Club website must be down. I'm headed out that way on June 28 for son's orientation at KU. Maybe I'll stop and check it out, as well as Perry Township Game Associates.

    Thanks Mark. Move in day at KU is the 24th. I'm thinking there's not gonna be a lot of room in the car for much more than a pistol. Haha. And I still haven't been able to convince my wife that shooting sports and range time are fun. Still working on it though. May have to stop sometime if I'm making the trip alone.
