    state ranges

    Is it true in PA we can only load a max of six rounds in a pistol to shoot at a state range?

    Same thing in the State Range I go to in Michigan..It doesn't bother me much because I only practice the 25 yards shoot there. No movable targets are allowed in the state range. I mainly go there for rifle 100 yards shooting.

    The 6-round limit is true at PA ranges. At least it is at mine. However, if your range is like mine, there's rarely anyone else there, so there's really noone to enforce it.

    Unfortunately it would only take you unloading a 30 round AR clip with a Conservation officer, an anti gun person with a cell phone to land you in deep do-do. That's why I belong to a private club & my buddy has a farm.

    Ditto, instances have happened where people have been caught "bending" the rules. Don't be that guy. You've got a "free" range to shoot on, respect the rules.


    I miss PA



    Even if SGL 43 was like a war zone sometimes. Had some great times there and a few scary moments as well.

    State game land ranges are no longer free - you need a $30 annual permit now. The funds are supposed to help improve the ranges.
    They closed the only range in Beaver county last year so it's kind of a moot point now.

    My buddy's dad and 4 others were busted a couple of years back at that range by a Conservation officer for shooting too early - 10 am was the start time and this was at about 10 till 10. They all got fines.

    Some ranges are handgun only...not sure if that implies the others are rifle only or not.

    One of the local hunter-oriented clubs (few shooting events) isn't taking members anymore - they signed a marcellus gas lease and got $300k and their counsel said they're too rich now to take on additional members...so a member tells me. They were charging $20/year.
