Hey folks!

I've just recently moved to the Huntsville/Madison area from Texas, and am looking to get myself squared away with a good club or range to train at. I won't pretend to be a high-speed competition shooter, or operator, but I do enjoy practicing basic transition and movement drills from long gun to handgun, and vice versa.

Does anyone have any recommendations on ranges that will allow moving shooting drills with rifle and handgun? Private clubs that require a paid membership are fine, as well.

Depending if you want indoor or outdoor shooting range there are a few.

I do not have any experience with any of these but did find good review online about them.

Bullet and Barrel Indoor Shooting Range 4.7 stars on google.
Ammo Dump Indoor Firing Range 3.7 on google.
Ammo Dump Indoor Firing Range opening soon looks outdoors

Limestone Hunting Preserve 4.7 stars on google.

Good luck, no pricing info found so I would call around.

I am reletively new to the area too. I am in the Springville/Clay area and I am looking for an outdoor rifle range. I use 100 or 200 yd ranges to work up loads and sight scopes. A 500+ yd option would be great. I have never been to a public range but any place where I can spend half days shooting and measuring will work. I have heard good things about Heritage and it it close to me. But, membership is capped and it always seems to be full. Searching online has been frustrating because there is often conflicting information. Any suggestions?

FOP range is a good place it’s in pleasant grove.
talledega cmp is a good one also.

I like to find a friend with some land I can shoot for free.

While I do a lot of shooting at Hoover Tactical Firearms’ indoor range for handguns and ARs, it’s a tough place (to me, anyway) to work-out a shotgun as they only allow slugs. I need an outdoor place to function-check and pattern buckshot and birdshot.

Used to live super-close to them. They had (at least at one time) a fairly expensive process to join. By the same token, many of the matches there are open to non-members with no fee beyond the standard match or class fees. I’ve shot some IDPA and Single-Stack matches there as well as an IDPA intro class and a 3-gun intro class, too - very nice facility.

Besides FOP I’m not sure of another outdoor range down that way.
