Range for classes

Postby grandpa45 » Sun Jan 14, 2018 12:29 am

I'm thinking about getting instructor certified but I'm kind of stuck on where to hold the range portion of the class. Pretty sure I can find a suitable location for the classroom part. I'm in Richwood and would like to teach classes around this area. Anybody know of a range in the Marysville, Marion, Delaware area where I can take a small group of students? I haven't called Blackwing yet but guessing they will frown on outside instructors if they allow it at all.

Thanks!

Richwood Gun And Game Club may if they are still open. Not real close to Richwood but to any towns mentioned but about the same distance from them all.

Thanks for the reply Gramps. I have an email out to the folks at Richwood Gun and Game. According to the web site they have their own instructors and offer their own classes so wasn't sure if it's something they would allow. Location wise I think it would be fine.... might be able to do the classroom part here in Richwood as well. A range to use is one (important one) of the many things on my list to figure out before I spend money on instructor training.

The http://www.lcfishandgame.com/ may work for you.
I had my range time in pretty much a back field behind a small lodge.
Wife had her range time at a big pile of dirt at our airport.
Hope it works out for you!

Thanks again Gramps, I'll check it out. I'm also talking with someone from Richwood Gun and Game, so maybe that one will work out, we'll see.

I wish I had a big pile of dirt I could shoot into without upsetting the neighbors. We have 2 acres, and there's 140 or so acres of open farm land behind us, so I'm sure I could come up with a safe solution to shoot in the backyard. But the noise would probably be a problem for the neighbors 300-400 feet on either side of us.

Talk to them, maybe if you let them know when you'll be shooting they'll be OK. But if not, as long as you are not in the city limits there's not much they can do except complain.

I can't offer a shelter for the classes but I can offer a 20' high pile of 6000 year old dirt to shoot into and my neighbors all shoot too! Well all but the new ones...

I may talk to them and see what they say. At least the ones on either side. I'm only talking a couple of hours one or two Saturdays a month, not like it will be all day long. I just don't want to be "that guy" that upsets all the neighbors. Pretty sure one of them wouldn't mind at all, not sure about the other guy though.
