hey js - thanks for the greeting! look forward to hanging out here and learning a lot...brandon
I am from Charlotte.
I just found out that there are no shooting ranges in Charlotte...none...and this is because of the City. They do NOT allow it.
The closest one, and only one in Mecklenburg county is Firepower...but I am partial to The Bullethole in Monroe.
I have been to Shooter's Express, but never shot there...I will try it out.
I've been down to the Bullethole a bunch. Not in over a year, though. Almost want to drive down there to shoot there again, but I'm up by Durham, so it's a treck. I used to qualify there with both armored companies I worked for. Real nice range they got there. And the store isn't bad, either.
I recently bought some 9mm Snap caps and an HKS speed loader...aside from general accessories, I think the store is gone.
I asked them if they will still provide FFL services, and one guy told me, at least until March...which implies that they may not be interested in renewing their FFL license. Do you need an FFL licese to run a range and rent handguns to people?
Also, I have never shot at Shooter's Express, but I plan to start trying them out. Premium Members there ($250/yr) are allowed to bring a guest for free with each visit. I cannot afford to shoot there as a non-member...they charge $15 per hour...OUCH!
Hm, good question about needing an FFL to run the range and rent guns. I'm not sure about that one at all.
I'm sorry to hear they are not doing anything with the shop. I really liked that store. But they have an awful location, so they may just not be making any money.
I'm in Cherryville. I just stumbled upon this site tonight so I'm new here.
