    Bigt,
    How far do you want to travel? There are a couple out my way, around Palmer.
    What kind of facilities / activities are you looking for?
    Indoor/outdoor/rifle/pistol/shotgun?

    Haven't been there in many years, but Franklin County League of Sportsmen's Club was a nice place with very friendly people. South Deerfield IIRC.

    Check the www.goal.org website under Clubs (it'll only show GOAL-affiliated clubs).

    Thanks for the reply, Palmer's not too bad. I'll probably just need indoor/outdoor for pistol. I was hoping to find somewhere around here with 24 hour access.

    The Hamilton Rod and gun club in Sturbridge is really nice. The Holland Rod and gun club is small but membership is cheap and you usually have the range to yourself.

    In Agawam, on the border of Southwick. They have an indoor range that is open until 10pm I think. Handguns only though. They have a pistol plinking range, a shotgun range and a ~75 yard rifle range outside.

    not 24x7, but smith and wesson? maybe it is too crowded? you can buy a membership there I think.

    I've also heard hamilton is a good club. They have a very competative bullseye pistol team.

    Default thanks

    thanks for the responses guys,

    just as a matter of convenience i joined smith and wesson. Its about 4 minutes from my house and had a monthly membership option that suited my needs, 20 bucks a month sure beats the 20 dollar non member lane fee EVERY time you go...Plus you get good perks like free cleaning on S&W pistols, 10% off ammo, 15% off targets and some off of accessories and 5% off of all firearms...
