    Not what I would really call a range but I have a shooting stop set up on my property. But I am not in Michigan. I really don't care for commercial shooting ranges for many reasons.

    Impressive! Wish my yard was like that. Although I'd take one of these any day.
    My neighbors are too close to shoot on my property so I have to use the club's range which is only a twelve minute drive. Here's a picture from my last afternoon plinking here in South East Massachusetts. It is a small private club without an indoor range but since our membership is low, most of the time I go (during the week,) I have the place to myself.

    Sorry I can't be helpful with any Michigan range suggestions.

    Since I posted here they closed the area I had alluded to. I now shoot at an indoor range in Tucson, Az. The cost is $8.60 for all day.

    My favorite range is Jim's yard. Everybody should have one like that. Now all he has to do is invite us all down, supply us with transportation and some ammo (we will bring sack lunches) and everything will be all well.

    If Jim puts in pay to go porta potties, $3 baloney samiches, tents and sleeping bags for rent and boolits by the round he will come out with some bucks. I am sure there would be a bunch of baloney going around to make samiches with. LOL

    Your all invited every year , in October.

    No free transportation,

    Some almost free food, ( everybody pitch in $5, and meal gets delivered)or bring cooler packed with sammiches , as some do.

    Free camping, even some free tents.(5 motels within 1-2 miles)
    Porta potty on campsite.

    Most free ammo,all you want to shoot, every caliber from .22 to .50 bmg.

    All the free shooting of, most likely, any gun, long , short, in between, that you can imagine, for 3 days,

    Keep the first weekend of Oct 2018 open ...and don't come up with puny excuses..;):D:dunno:

    There may be surprise explosions..:cool::D
