    OK this is taken from the Four Corners Rod and Gun Club Jan 2014 Newsletter. I know nothing but what I am posting here.

    If I find out more I will pass it along. Hopefully these guys make a go of it.

    It doesn't say anything about shooting 50 BMG it says the lane would be capable of handling it.

    $400 a yr for a 20 yd range???
    A lot of farmers will rent their back pastures to you for half that.

    I knew the instant that I posted this here it would be crapped on. I should sell lottery numbers.

    I wasn't crapping on it. Just a little shocked at the fee.
    Seriously there are a lot of farmers out around that have backdrop hills
    in their back 40's that will rent the area to shooters that are courteous and clean up.
    They need the $$ and it works out well for all. You can get longer ranges.
    A portable bench and a good target stand is all you need then.
    I shoot rifle more than handgun and like 100 to 300 yd ranges to shoot.
    For people that shoot handgun more than long gun, the 20 yarders are fine.
    $400 to me sounds like a lot for a short range, but I guess not if you shoot handgun
    3 or 4 times a week.
    I am glad to see any new range start up though.

    $400 a year is pretty steep in my book.

    I agree, but if you do the math it makes it more reasonable sounding.

    Right now the deal is you get 14 months for $400. That works to be $28.57 a month which is cheaper than the day rate if you go 2 times a month.

    I'd join right now if it was a 50 yard range.

    Why not charge competively with 4 corners? I don't see any great advantage to going to a range that has fewer lanes with shorter range. I have never been to 4 corners when I didn't get a lane to shoot in, plus its nice to be outside if you choose to get away from the lead fumes, no I'm sorry I just don't see it.
