How far to your home range?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

 

After a long layoff from my initial jump into shooting and owning back in 2011, I got a bug again and this time I would love to join a range. As many may know here, I am in Robbinsville (Mercer Co). I took the

NRA Basic Pistol course at CRRC in West Windsor. At that time, I was NOT at all impressed with their facilties. To my eyes, it appeared rather old and run down, almost like it has never been remodeled or

updated since the 70s! I certainly realized it may have ben updated or modernized in the past four years. Are there current CRRC members here who can enlighten about this?

So than CRRC can remain an option as I may give them another look. Besides CRRC, I have Range 14 and CJRPC in Jackson. I think CJRPC may be a bit out of my budget for their initial start up fee

and than annual membership costs. Langhorne Gun Club in Bucks County is close too, but I believe you need to go on a waiting list, as they currently are no full memership capacity.

 

I am an educated professional and would much rather join a club geared towards families, professionalism and respect. I am very turned off by the 21 year old who goes and shoots with friends and holds and

shoot sideways and does the whole ganster thing with their Glock, covered in tatoos and body piercings. Sorry, I dont know how to describe it gently without offending.

 

I was really wondering exactly just how far (miles) do guys (or girls) drive to their home ranges? Who here has the longest drive time from their home to their home range? To me, it seems like RTSP is the model

range/gunshop in NJ, but they are about a 1 1/2 drive, probably too far, I would think?

Also look into Wicen`s Farm. They are very Safety oriented with a lot of RO`s and there is no membership. Its a daily fee. Nice place. I ve been going there once in a while for years. Not Far from Tanner`s Firearms Shop.

15 minutes to Riverdale or North Jersey Clay Target Club. 45 minutes to Cherry Ridge or Somerset.

 

Yes, it's a lot of clubs-but I can't get all of the range features I want with fewer, unless I drive much further...and then I'd have less time for shooting.

    • As I mentioned in another thread, we bought a condo in Florida a couple of years ago, and have started spending some time down here.  We have not become residents yet, but still are able to enjoy a taste of life in a free state with Covid sanity and everyday concealed carry. Yesterday I purchased the Zastava Arms ZPAP M70 for which I have been lusting.  Bought it online from Atlantic Firearms and had it shipped to a local dealer.  When I went over to pick it up, he asked me for my DL and Florida CCW permit (if I had one).  I filled out a 4473 and a few minutes later, he said, "You're all set."  Holy crap!  No waiting days for an "instant" background check requiring a return trip to the dealer.  In just minutes I was able to walk out with my new beauty.  While I was there, a fellow walked in and asked to look at a handgun.  He checked it out for a few minutes, then said, "OK, I'll take it."  Same deal for him:  DL, Florida CCW, 4473, and out the door in a few minutes with the gun.  I should note that with the ready availability of guns in Florida, contrary to the hysterical fears of legislators in states like New Jersey, not only do legal gun owners not run around shooting each other, one rarely (like, never) even sees a gun. All that aside, the weather here has been great, the people warm and welcoming.  On days when it's a little cooler, with temperatures in the mid-60's, when we can't sit by the pool or go to the beach, the weather is perfect for golf, pickle ball, running and working out, or just hanging out.  Unfortunately, we have to leave "The Matrix" next week to return to Jersey for six weeks in the middle of winter, for some weddings and other family events.  But we get to look forward to returning in mid-March for another 6-8 weeks.  If any of you are down this way, be sure to say hi!
