    I forgot to mention that the reason for this club to say we could not shoot skeet is due to the rifle range has use till noon. Yes, I still mark this club as rude. But, would advice a correction on their website and a pleasant person at counter would help the club!

    After viewing claytargetsonline.com and see they have trap and skeet, I decide to go to their web site to check days and times. The website is very nicely put together with all the days and times. I decide to call the night before to confirm for we will be driving for 2.5 hours. A very nice lady says yes you may shoot skeet tomorrow . She said they have 3 skeet fields and we open at 9am. I say thank you we will see you in the morning.
    We drive the 2.5 hours and guess what? No skeet shooting till NOON! So, what else does a person have to do to make sure we can shoot? I need to say that the man that was working was not your normal friendly shooter. Folks, this place is now marked as rude in my book. Do NOT make a special effort to shoot this facility.

    In addition to what others have mentioned, there are two 5-stand courses, frequent top-notch instruction (Masaad Ayoob, for example), monthly SASS competitions, and a 300 yard rifle range. Because of leagues and shared space, I would advise always calling ahead to find out what is available on any given day.

    I go out to Darnall’s regularly. It is a nice place, and its close to home. Prices are a little steep ($4 a round for trap or skeet for members, $5 for nonmembers), at least for a guy on a college budget. Staff is very friendly and always willing to help.

    This range is one that I would recommend to anyone asking me where to go. The place looks a little run down, but once you go there and talk to the staff and the owner, it not run down anymore it’s just got that homey feeling to it. The indoor range is nice and clean, the skeet and trap fun for large groups and there is even an area for the rifles of all kinds to shoot. It is a must go to place.

    Nice facility located in the country. Three working traps, with two combined skeet/trap. Voice release on one trap. Long hours, lights for night shooting. Trap leagues on two nights per week during the summer. A busy place with friendly folk.

    The indoor shooting range is great. Very comfortable and well heated. the outdoor shooting facilities are also very well kept and a great thrill to shoot at. I strongly recomend going out there to shoot.
