  3. Great news that they upgraded Stafford Forge as well. They look like proper ranges now, instead of just some old tables in the woods like it used to be. I wonder if the switch to allowing centerfire up to .30 caliber prompted them to upgrade all the ranges? That would explain the new overhead baffles.
  4. Thanks, good to know. Luckily I have enough for the short term. Just worried that this will become the new normal given current events. Seems like the perfect storm of low supply and huge demand.
  5. The ammo situation really has me concerned for the long term viability of shooting as a hobby. Since I haven't done many range trips over the past year, I really wasn't paying much attention to ammo prices/availability. I knew there was a shortage but didn't realize how badly prices were affected. I checked today and my jaw dropped...over $1 a round for basic FMJ pistol rounds? Its even worse for rifle rounds. Amazingly, even shotgun shells and oddball calibers seem to be affected...stuff that was typically not affected during previous shortages. Do you guys think things will EVER go back to "normal"? I am not optimistic about it, given the state of current events. At best I'm thinking it might take several years for supply to catch up and prices go back down. Luckily I have a modest supply of ammo to hold me over in the meantime...but I will definitely have to ration it. I fear being priced out of the hobby if things don't get better, since I can't afford to go the range very often if it means $100+ in ammo costs every time. I was thinking of looking at airguns as an option until things (hopefully) blow over. Or even Archery!
  6. Looks nice! I'm glad to see they put in a proper gravel driveway from the parking area to the benches. It used to be annoying having to hike it up and down the old hill dirt carrying all your gear. I used to go all the way down to Makepeace Range, but now Colliers looks just as nice, and way closer to home for me. Thanks for the pics/report.
  7. 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
  8. thanks for the tip, just printed out my license for the new year.
  9. 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..
  10. Thanks, maybe ill try Stafford on a weekday.
