Easton Game and Fish Association (EFGA) is prob about an hour from you. Outdoor range little over 10 minutes from first exit off 78 once you cross into PA (Phantom Fireworks exit). Very affordable and not much further than many NJ ranges.

 

3 covevered pistol ranges, one is rimfire only, a 100 yard rifle range and an "action pit" where you can practice drawing and firing and also shoot shotgun.

 

Yes it's further but for price it can't be beat and it's not that much further than most ranges in NJ. If you would like tour IM me and I can guest you in.

 

Also look for the shotgun shotout clay shots we have in Clinton few times each year. It's right off 78 at the Clinton Wildlife Preserve Area (exit 13). Lot's of fun!

Hmmm... do I remember an earlier thread saying EFGA was also building a 250 yd range? If so, do you know what's the ETA on that? Just curious. I want to try out some rifle shooting in Spring and have that range "tucked in the back of my mind" - because it's still a very affordable outdoor range from what I understand.

Based on the speed of them getting club steel for members, I expect the 250yd range will be completed approximately 3 months after the sun burns out.

 

I've heard rumors of a 200/250/300yd range for 4 or 5 years, and every time someone says anything at all about a date, that date comes and goes and no word at all about anything.  I think there may have been a single line about it in their mailer.  That's about the most official thing I've heard.  Or maybe it was just wishing and hoping real hard, and I just imagined it.

 

Would be nice to have - I'd spend the majority of my time on the 250 instead of the 100, and would hopefully clear up some of the other areas that are always crowded on weekends...even though they'd probably still manage to close down all the ranges for events

    • I always appreciated the tools that were made in an era when quality mattered and tools were built in the USA to last a lifetime. So, I restore those tools as a hobby. I don't make any money doing this. It almost always cost me more than I get back - it's a hobby, the 100's of hrs of my labor are free. But I try to at least cover my costs. My latest restoration is this Vintage Walker Turner bandsaw on its correct restored vintage stand. Complete nut and bolt restoration. Stripped to bare metal, moving parts polished, new bearings, new paint. The only thing left to do is bolt in the motor of which I have several that you can choose from.  This saw was built to last. Solid cast iron, it is very heavy, has zero flex, bearings/shaft run in an oil bath and it will run forever (compare that to the cast pot metal / aluminum / plastic / nylon bushing crap that they make today). A beautiful rugged tool made when quality was most important. Smooth and quiet. $350. (a steal considering I have 200 hrs in this)  
    • Can you specify what date and time this was?  And of course the VIN number of that ZL1. =P @Malsua very cool to be able to do that without being concerned about $$$$$$$. Very cool, especially in a Ford Focus ST. Fastest for me, outside of track, was a Vette C6 somewhere on Florida pike between West Palm Beach and Orlando.... 120 or so.
    • robbing a bank was a great line, literally laughed out loud while on a conference call!  had mute on luckily  
    • In preparation for a move I am selling all of my larger shop tools. Look for other listings to come soon. I know what it's all worth but I have a lot to sell and not a lot of spare time so am knowingly selling my equipment cheap just to get it all moved. For now I am starting with my welding gear. Lincoln AC 225 Welder Older unit from 1970. Many say the older units were made with better materials (copper, heavier metal etc.) and are more desirable. All I know is that it welds great and has never let me down. Has factory wheel kit, 20' leads, original Lincoln ground clamp and stinger. A little dirty but unit has no dents and leads are in great shape. Works as it should. $150 NAPA Plasma Cutter Manufactured in the USA by Marquette/Lincoln manuals and support are available from Lincoln. Unlike the abundant Chinese cheapie ones on the market today, this unit has no proprietary IGBT's or Mosfets inside, and is far more reliable and durable. I added front castors to the factory 2 wheel setup so it rolls really easily. 20' leads. Comes with an extra torch and loads of consumables (electrodes, tips, swirl rings and nozzles. Works great. $300 Package deal: Buy both the welder and the plasma cutter for $375 and I'll include: 55 lbs of welding rods. Yes, 55 lbs! A 50 lb can of Lincoln Fleetweld rods and a 5 lb box from Radnor. (The Lincoln rods alone were $275). 2 welding masks 2 pairs of gloves Also for sale: 3/4” Steel for Welding Table Top: This was my welding table top. With 2" slots between pieces for clamps (far more useful than a solid slab), the table measured approx. 4' x 3' when assembled. I disassembled it to move to my basement and never reassembled it. 5 pieces, 3/4” x 7” x 36” (1 piece is 45” long) Bottom side is painted for protection, tops are clean metal. Best price I could find on-line was $90 per piece. Save some real money here. $300 Superstrut for Welding Table Base: 70 ft total 4 10' lengths 2 10' lengths that have been cut 80” 40” 1 10' length cut 60” 60” $100 Victor Regulator $35(Victors are top quality made in the USA units and are $140 new)   Super package deal: Lincoln welder (150) 55 lbs of welding rods 2 welding masks 2 pairs of gloves Plasma cutter with extra torch and consumables (300) Heavy 3/4” welding table (400) Victor regulator (35) $650 OR BEST OFFER for everything above and I'll also include: 2 welding cylinders: 330 cf 75/25 argon/CO2, almost empty, needs a cert. 125 cf argon, almost full, needs a cert. Cylinders are in great shape but out of cert. and welding suppliers vary on their exchange policies so I cannot guarantee their utility. Hence they are FREE if you purchase all the other equipment.   Emglo air compressor A great made in the USA model. Not a cheapie import or box store compressor. This is a professional unit made to last. Has an oil bath pump unlike the cheaper 'dry' run pumps on the import/box store units. A testament to this is it has a service factor of 1 which means it can run continuously. Great, great compressor. This unit is not for sale alone and not included in the package. I will only sell it to the lucky guy who picks up the plasma if he needs it. $100        
    • OP, I think you said you wanted to buy local; if you decide internet I can not speak more highly of realtruck.com I bought a set of nerf bars for my truck several years ago. They rusted out within the warranty period. I got them replaced promptly by realtruck. The replacement set began rusting even faster (I was still in warranty period of 1st set). I contacted them, told them I'd lost faith in that mfg and asked if I could apply the value of that set towards a different brand. They agreed; so I kicked in the price difference and they shipped me the other mfg. Several years later the new brand still look great and are as solid as day 1. I wasn't really expecting them to agree to my request, but they stepped up big and took care of me.
