I've always felt free to ignore stupid laws and rules wherever I encounter them.

Not to hijack the thread but I disagree. If they allow reloads as a rule and someone's reloaded ammunition ends up causing an to someone else, there is the main liability issue. I suspect that by giving up control of what types of ammunition is fired at their range, they would not be able to control the types of ammo that could cause damage to the range itself.

When it comes down to it, it may be mainly about insurance. I am sure that there are many insurance companies that will not insure a range that allows reloads or if they will, the premiums are very high.

Here in central Florida I actually MUCH prefer shooting in the winter outside.

(And I won't shoot at an indoor range again -- too many health hazards and not nearly the fun that my gun club here, at around $200 a year, gives me for the 20 minute drive).

They want $425 / yr.
But even with all the vent fans and filters changed out they found the lead test results were above acceptable limits.

I shoot at outside ranges only.
Tuesday we might be cold ('bout 7 degrees pridicted) and snow ... but this oldman is going anyway.

I'm a member at a LGS ($300/yr) with a range that's 5min away. Frankly I'm a member for the discounts more than the range although I'll use it for calibration or controlled testing. I much prefer shooting at several outdoor ranges that are 30min to an hour drive away.

I joined an outdoor club here. 150.00 a year for a family membership.

It sits on 90 acres and has a small area for camping overnight, a boat launch, as it sits on a 200 acre private lake (no public access anywhere). It has a rifle range out to 200 yds, it has a pistol range, it also has a 30 3d target archery range (I'm into traditional archery, recurves, longbows etc). It also has a skeet area with 3 machines.

I can shoot there 7 days a week, sun up to sundown. Have to wait until noon on Sundays out of respect for a couple of local churches. I'm not sure they would even hear us, but it's what we elected to do out of respect.

It's about a 20 minute drive.

Sounds like my kind of place. Wake up in the tent in the morning, head out on the lake for some fishing and then get my shooting in. And all for $150 year sounds pretty darned good.

On another note, I've read that the reason for ventilation is more for the range workers than the shooters since the shooters aren't exposed long enough to affect them.

There is a relatively new indoor range (25 yds) about 30 min. from my house. They have various levels of membership. I pay $400/year for unlimited use, some discounts on the stuff they sell and I can call ahead to reserve a lane. I don't have to drive over hoping something is open. I'm there at least once a week in the cold months. A friend and I go together and take turns driving. Warmer months I shoot at an outdoor range about 10 min from my house. The outdoor range has a 200 yd rifle range. I still use the indoor range occasionally in warm weather.

I belong to a new state of the art indoor range called McQueeny Gun Club in New Braunfels TX. I do enjoy the indoor range because here in south Texas it is sometimes way to hot to shoot outdoors. Air conditioned ranges are nice here. After 40 years in Law Enforcement having to qualify in heavy rains, blizzards, hot sun and cool days, I enjoy the indoors.
