I'm aware that it can be, but in New Jersey it's exceptionally-expensive. In other states you can get a range membership for a small fraction of what one pays here, though it's understandable because of NJ property prices/taxes and legal constraints on range owners.
I wasn't aware of this club. Thanks for pointing me that way- the prices are very reasonable, it has nice facilities, and there's a good variety of ranges. Definitely feasible for my own use, I'll see if I can't reach out to them.
I'm more opening this club (note, it's not a formal "gun club", it's an interest club which will go to other sites) for the purpose of teaching them the basics. It's not a shooting sports club, and I already have about two dozen people. Most of them are interested in learning more about guns, while we do have some experienced and beginning shooters with prior knowledge. In addition, there are members who are interested in becoming certified. Could you give me a link to the training program up to instructor? I only find references to other ranges like Shore Shot. I appreciate your input!
Definitely another option I was considering!
