Indoor or outdoor range?


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

which range would you choose in my place?

 

Pro/Contra Indoor:

+ all year practice

+ more than 1 bay

+ sanitary facilities availabe

- short width 25x10yard

- some steel targets allowed because of walls

 

Pro/Contra Outdoor:

+ only 1 big bay 40x40yard

+ many steel targets available

- weather dependend

- no sanitary facilities

+/- gravel 

 

USPSA Shooting at both ranges allowed.

Same fees and travel distance.

Any other reasons I should consider?

 

Thx.

I don’t go to the range to poop so I say outdoor all the way!😊 Actually outdoor ranges are better, period. Indoors is too loud, too restrictive, often more crowded than outdoor range.

Don't know where you reside, but if it is above 42°N you can extend your season with indoor range.  

I am not a big indoor range fan, but when the weather sucks it is much more hospitable.

How easy is it to get a bay for your own use only at this indoor range unicorn?  Because if you can get one scheduled when you want fairly easily and on a relatively short notice, that's where I'd go for practice.

In Belgium we don't really have a choice. I would say 98% of all shooting ranges are indoors. Very few are outdoors. If I would have a choice, I'd prefer outdoor ranges, amongst the above mentioned pro's, also less lead intake. DVC!
