Select Fire is the best indoor range in the Cleveland area IMO. If only because they have a great range safety program.

I usually shoot outdoors at Erie County Conservation League or at a friends property but, when the weather is bad or I'm short on time I pay the big fee and hit Select Fire.

I agree not cheap but you don't have gun's pointed at you which is nice. :D

Myself and 4 others spent a few hours putting rounds down range here. It is located on road 1001. Small parking area. Range is about 50' wide and about 150 yds long(est.) We were in the area for a church retreat and had a few hours of free time. Best of all was the price.

Hey if your in the Dayton, New Carlisle, or Springfield Area. There is a new range that opened in Enon called Fox Shooting Loft. They have a really nice range but it is small, only 5 or 6 lanes. It is getting pretty busy too, I think everyone has discovered it. I had to wait 30 minutes to get in today. They allow Handguns and Rifles. The biggest rifle I have seen in there was a 308. No Tula, Wolf, or WPA Bi-Metal Jacketed Rifle Ammo. Very Nice Clean Range with a Full Time Very attentive Range officer. Cheap too. $8 for 30Minutes, $14 for an Hour. Up to 3 can share a lane and it is half price for each person sharing. Targets and Ammo are very reasonably priced for a range. Free Earplugs. Clean Restroom with Handsoap is available too! You would be surprised how many ranges run out of handsoap and I always like to wash my hand after I shoot.

The range is upstairs with no handicap access, so my mom can't go. :(

Build A Gun - AR parts - northwestern Columbus

If you are in central Ohio and have tried looking for parts for your AR platform rifle or pistol, you know how hard it is to find someone who stocks such parts locally.

You typically pay $5 shipping for a 99¢ part from an online retailer, or spend more than you had planned just to make the shipping worth it. :?

As many of you may know, I won an Anderson lower receiver as a door prize at the OFCC picnic earlier this month. That receiver was donated by Build A Gun, I company I was not familiar with, until recently. ( http://www.facebook.com/buildagun1911 )

I stopped in and met the owner, Bryan, and spoke with him for quite a while, taking breaks so he could take care of customers. Since I'm perpetually broke, I wasn't able to purchase anything that day...and that made me VERY sad after seeing that I really could "Build A Gun" with all the parts he stocks!

What made me happy is that his store is in northwestern Columbus, right up against anti-gun cities Dublin and Powell !! :twisted: Add to that the fact that he has neighbors pi***d off that his store even exists and that is more than enough to make me want to support this business with every spare penny I can dig up.

Stop in and say hello, but don't tell him I sent you...he might just kick you out !! :wink:

:mrgreen:

+1 for Build A Gun. Build A Gun is a licensed FFL and has reasonable fees for transfers. Additionally, if you would like a safe place to conduct a private transaction, Bryan says come on in. You can also find him at most (if not all) gun shows in the central Ohio region.

I've been going to a place called K-Hill Indoor Shooting Range in Kitt's Hill since about July or August. I think I paid about $150 for a family membership, but I'm the only one in my house who ever ends up going. The only downside is that they're out in the sticks, so you lose cell service about 20 minutes before you get there. But that could be a good thing too.

That said, I'm thinking about looking into that new Bare Arms place in Ashland, just because it's slightly more convenient and I don't like being too far from cell coverage.
