      N AZ range prefences

      Hi, ok I just got my security 6, and I wanna go shoot. I would like to know if anyone who lives near the Prescott Az area has a preference on which range to use, or maybe more specifically which ones to avoid. My main concern is that I don't want to spend my time or money at a place where I'm going to be treated like garbage because I'm a new shooter, and might have a few what to them might be stupid questions.

      Thanks

      There is an outdoor range south of town off highway 89. I suggest you get a Yellow Pages Phone book and start with the range closest to home. If that one doesn't suit you move out a bit.

      Not all but most gun people I have known are quite willing to help newbies. They have to for the purpose of self preservation. If you are new to the gun world and have not done so yet I suggest you take a course on gun handling and SAFETY.

      Don't let lack of knowledge keep you away from the ranges. We all had to start out new and gather what knowledge we have over time.

      After you are well versed in safe handling procedures you will find an abundance of locations in the Prescott National Forest where you can practice in the great outdoors.

      Welcome to the world of guns.

      Stay safe

      From my experience and observation, it's the staff at gun stores who tend to be arrogant at times. I have yet to visit a shooting range where the staff has not been courteous to shooters’ questions.

      Gotcha. I'll just try the ones in my area, and see which one I like best.

      gunby, did you find a range to shoot at? I would also like to find a range to shoot at but really have not taken the time to search a range out. I know of a indoor range in PV, they hold a ccw class there as well. The guys there and over at PV guns seem to be okay to deal with.
