Handgun range available and marked for 7,15 and 25 yard shooting, I believe. Not sure of the others - I will check next time around. Can be used in all weather conditions. All main shooting positions are covered. Trap area available with electronic thrower included in range fee - you just bring your own clays or buy theirs.
I've been twice. Once was quite busy - more than 3/4 of pistol bays were occupied, but less than 1/3rd of rifle, and unknown on both occasions about shotgun range. Second time was just before closing time - I was the 2nd to last customer, and had the range to myself for at least 30 min. They do have Range Safety Officers, and are very stringent about the processes of prepping for a ceasefire, having the range go cold, not going ANYWHERE near your equipment while the range is cold, etc.
The pistol and rifle ranges are both covered booths, with carpeted stands & shelving for your bags. I didn't need it when I went, but I understand the ranges are well lit for evening shooting. They have brass catchers between firing bays, so that's a nice plus. Some people in online reviews have complained about grumpy or overly harsh staff, but I simply haven't seen that - they've all been very friendly, and helpful.
They do carry reloading supplies, as well as a smattering of ammo & equipment in the small gun store. They also sell their brass - although they only offer it sorted, not in salvage / by the pound form. The range is easy to find, and not too far off the beaten path.
Biggest downer would be the noise - for an outdoor range, it can get pretty darn loud. Had a .40 next to me, and he had a .357 next to him. My teeth felt every round they shot - mostly the .357 of course. I had seen posts half-joking to put your hearing protection on in the car - they weren't kidding. The parking is separated from the pistol & rifle ranges by a chain link fence, and not a lot of space. Another minor issue was waiting for a ceasefire when it's busy can be a while, since everyone is on the same range.
All that said, it is quite close to my house, and the price is right. Given the range is open quite late, this will likely be my most frequent practice spot.
