    Due to being out of ammo, the shooting center is now allowing outside ammo with a range use fee of $25. I wonder if that will be reduced on ceral or ladies night?

    Do you mean the Public Safety Training Center? Or is there somewhere else to shoot that I don't know about?

    I thought their range fee was $16. Maybe they're trying to offset the profit from ammo sales.

    Cool. Beats the drive out to Tri- County if I just want to shoot handguns. Never liked the idea of being forced to buy their ammo to shoot there.

    Yeah it's the PSTC. They're out of .38, 9mm, and something else I think, was there a few weeks ago.
    Yeah I wasn't sure if you had to still pay the $16 fee plus the $25 to use your own ammo, their wording on the sign was a bit confusing.

    My friend is a member there and he said they charge him for using his own ammo because that is how they make their money.

    I believe that the fee is per shooter, not per lane.

    Wow guys this place looks pretty neat. I have a few spots in gifford pinchot I usually hit but need to head over here someday. I have never seen a LE and Public shooting range, mixed.

    It's a very nice facility. My only complaint is that you have to use their ammo, but it seems that's not a valid complaint anymore.

    When we first got in to shooting we joined up. It is a great facility. The staff was friendly and it is one of the nicest indoor ranges I have been to.

    There are a couple of areas there.
    The LE portion is usually on what used to be called the "Green Deck".
    It is also the part of the range for tactical classes and practice.

    Members pay $9 for bringing their own ammo, $25 non-members. All brought in ammo has to be checked by the persons behind the counter.

    If you're asking about the LE area(post 14), don't know, but if you're asking about the public
    range-definitely yes!

    Well they have 9mm again, as for paying extra and having to buy their ammo, this is my take on it. Their price on 9mm is $17 bucks a box of 50, the last two boxes I bought on my own in Portland was $15, if $2.00 changes your planes on shooting and where you go, maybe you can't afford to go in the 1st place. My 357 eats ammo @ $25 a box and is the same price weather I buy it there or on my own. To me there close and easy to get to saving fuel and time and really what is your time worth, Have fun and be safe.
