  1. I need to sight-in a .22 rifle...but with Range 14 still closed, and the WMA ranges now unavailable due to the Dept. of Fish and Wildlife furlough, I am currently out of luck. The only other outdoor rifle range near me is Shooter's in Little Egg Harbor. From what I understand, for a non-member it is $20 per hour, per person. I haven't been able to find much in the way of pictures or reviews of their outdoor range. Can anyone familiar with this range explain what type of amenities this range has? Stuff like...is the firing line covered (or will I need to bring sunsceen)? Will I need to bring some sort of target stand (or do they provide them)? Also...I see that its a 150 yard range, can you setup targets to shoot at shorter distances (25 yards, 50 yards, etc.)? Thanks
  2. thanks for the tip, just printed out my license for the new year.
  3. Thanks for the info. Honestly the centerfire thing makes me want to avoid Colliers as this will probably mean bigger crowds there. Sucks that there's only 2 benches at Stafford Forge. Anyone know if there's any rules against bringing your own table? I have a folding card table in the basement that could probably be pressed into service as a shooting bench. I might just keep going to Makepeace. Its not fun driving over an hour away, but it really is a nice range with plenty of concrete tables, and there are berms at 25 yard intervals which is a nice feature..
  4. Thanks, maybe ill try Stafford on a weekday.
  5. I am in southern Monmouth and either of these ranges are within a reasonable distance from me. I am primarily interested in using the muzzle loader range. Which of these would be a better choice in terms of being less crowded on an average day, and which one is better maintained? The only other WMA range i've been to is Makepeace, and although it was a nice spot, its kind of a long drive form Monmouth county. Thanks
  6. Yeah unfortunately they don't really specify on the website. It does seem like it would be a weird arbitrary rule to not allow birdshot at an outdoor range. I guess I will give them a call when they open back up.
  7. I actually wasn't aware of this place and its right up the road from me. I will keep that in mind, thanks.
  8. I was afraid of that, since I need to pattern some birdshot loads. I guess ill need to go to a WMA range. Thanks
  9. Once everything eventually reopens, I will need to pattern a couple of shotguns. During past visits, I remember seeing some people at Range 14 shooting shotguns on the rifle range, but I don't know if there are any ammo restrictions. Anybody know if its slugs only? Or are buckshot and birdshot allowed as well? Thanks
  10. Since this is a low-key assembly election, turnout is expected to be super low. If enough of us show up to vote, it could make a measurable impact in some races. Go vote!
  11. Thanks for the info! I will try to take a trip down there
  12. Does anyone have any experience with this range? I would like to find a decent WMA range to sight in my .22 rifle. I am closer to the Colliers Mills and Stafford Forge WMA ranges, but I dont mind making the trip to Makepeace if its a nicer range. Thanks!
  13. Thanks for the replies. So the pistol range doesnt usually get as packed as the rifle range? It would work out perfect for me if they allow me to use a .22 rifle at the handgun range. i only shoot rimfire rifles, and never past 50 yards anyway. And thanks for the tip about the drill and auger bit!
