I' m looking for a place to shoot

Not sure if I'm posting this in the correct section....I'm in the Greensburg area and I'm looking for a place to send some rounds down range with the rifles. We used to go up behind someones house out the highway but I think they're getting a bit tired of us. What's a good range/place in my area???

Re: I' m looking for a place to shoot

there is a gamelands shooting range up near waterford past ligonier. its about 30 min from greensburg. it has 50 and 100 yard and is not overly crowded except near deer season. there are several clubs near you as well. hecla sportsman out towards the fairgrounds is close to you. crowfoot sportsman down near murraysville is nice but a little pricey for membership. as for a place to go and just blast away, its getting harder to find around our area. all the strip mines and mine slag piles are getting built up. i do most of my shooting in my back yard but i only have a 40 yard range.

Re: I' m looking for a place to shoot

Is it legal to target shoot on state game lands at areas other than the designated shooting ranges?

SGL 42 just outside New Florence has a 100 yard rifle and 25 yd pistol range. Pays to read and follow all the rules there, have seen violators fined while there.
