Gun Range Miami County

Postby RobP7 » Sat Jul 16, 2016 6:29 pm

It's been a while... sorry if I posted this to the wrong area.

I'm looking for some help here. I moved out to Miami county last year and am looking for a decent gun range. 100-200+ yards would be great but even 100 yards would be good. I have been to VRA but they are booked with long waits every time I've stopped in. I looked at joining the Piqua Fish and Game Club only to find that the $40 membership doesn't cover you going to the range. That's another $30 per year?

HELP... and Thanks!

Friend of mine belongs to the Troy Fish and Game Club but I know very little about it.
Quit worrying, hide your gun well, shut up, and CARRY that handgun!

By the way, $40 + $30 a year sounds dirt cheap to me just for things like club upkeep and insurance costs.

Vance Outdoors indoor range in Obetz charges $199 for a membership. You can shoot at no additional cost M-F and $11/hour to shoot on Saturdays and Sundays.

Flat $20/hour to shoot without membership.

Yeah. $40 + $30 is a deal.

RobP7, did you look into Troy Fish & Game yet? I haven't had a chance to speak with my pal who has a membership about particulars of the place. Should run into him tomorrow at another range, that we both use. Anyhow, i'd be interested in what you decide on.

Just another comparison: I belong to an indoor, open to the public range in northern Kentucky. The normal annual fee is $225. A couple times a year the owner runs a special on them for $150. If it's a Saturday-Sunday sale, he won't let me pay up and renew a day early, or late, I have to be there during the promotional events. His circus, his elephants as the saying goes.

I know that $150 has to be the cheapest yearly rate of all eight Cincinnati/northern Ky. indoor ranges, by at least $50. That was last time I looked, a few years ago.

I went down to Troy and joined last week. They are a little further away, but they seemed nice enough.

Someone might want to tell them (Troy Fish & Game) that their site has been flagged and gets blocked as an attack site by Firefox.

Do you have a link? I have firefox and wanted to check this out, but I can't find a website for them, other than the facebook page. (which displays okay)

The address listed on their facebook page is the one that pops up a huge warning about it being a reported attack page.

Code: Select all
http://troyfish.com


Put it here as code so no one inadvertently clicks it.

Due south of you is a nicely renovated public range managed by ODNR, down in Spring Valley.

Bandwidth warning, lots of images embedded in the PDF https://wildlife.ohiodnr.gov/Portals/wi ... sFINAL.pdf

The benefit of ODNR ranges is $5/day or $20/year and you buy it just like you would a hunting license. The downside is strict rules and dealing with the general public..
