  1. Outdoor rifle ranges in Massachusetts accessible without a membership?

    Not sure what the membership looks like for MA rifle but I am member there. It's OK and very close. Woburn Sportsmans Association in Bedford is also a decent club. Both have 100 and 200 yard ranges and both have lots of fudd rules. Pelham Fish and Game is a great club but I don't go there as...
  2. Mass Rifle or Woburn Sportsmen’s

    Milktree just saved me a lot of typing and I echo his opinions. I am also a member of both. Archery at WSA is excellent, both the range and the walking courses. I also like the indoor pistol at WSA as I can shoot shorter distances for IDPA practice drills. MRA's indoor range is great for...
  3. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    I couldn't get the rules on my phone they way they are published but on my PC I found the rules state that no hand or foot throwers so I guess I answered my own question with a no.
  4. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    Because I want to use the MRA indoor range for rifle, pistol and then the 200 yard range before shooting some clay targets. I am not qualified at the 200 yard range at WSA and can't shoot rifles indoors at WSA.
  5. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    I had a question. I am a long time member and qualified on the 50 and 100/200 ranges. I have never shot trap at MRA. I shoot trap at WSA typically. I have a friend visiting and wanted to shoot some clay targets. Can members show up to the trap range when it isn’t regular trap hours and use...
  6. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    I hit the Suma (100/200) and McLaughlin before work fairly often, meaning a couple times a month, not as much in the winter. I show up 7:20am to get all setup for the 7:30 first shot. I don't think I have ever had anyone else shooting with me, so yeah they are pretty empty in the early AM on...

    Just wait a couple of days and see if the check is cashed. They do that pretty quickly :)
  8. Pelham F&G - Resolved

    Never been a problem for me, I shoot there all the time and never have issues. Seems a little odd that in 5 trips you couldn't get a shot off. Not saying it didn't happen but it certainly hasn't been my experience.
  9. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    You take a class, and I believe a test on the rules (easy) then you qualify shooting on the range. I forget the qualification exactly but it's probably something on the order of firing 5 shots at a target at 200 yards and getting all of them in the black which is about a 24"-30" circle. I...

  11. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    I wanted to Chrono a few loads I have been working on for 9mm and 45. I read the rules and did my best Google Foo attempt but could never find anything. I want to use my Chrony at the outdoor pistol or 50 yard (McLaughlin) range. Is this allowed? Any special rules on considerations since the...

    Anybody have the guest wifi password they can IM me? Planning to do a transfer here and it would be easier with the wifi.
  13. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    Has anyone shot at the Suma range this spring? I was going to go Saturday if it's accessible.
  14. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    Cool, thanks!
  15. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    Last I looked the 100/200 range was closed. I assume it's still closed until the snow melts off. Is the McLaughlin (50 yard) range closed as well?
  16. Club with Indoor Archery Range ?

    Woburn Sportsman's Association in Bedford has indoor archery.
  17. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    Show up Wednesday night or Sunday AM and talk to them, they will schedule an appointment. You have to do pretty much the ENTIRE safety training and videos you did when first becoming a member then you move on to the shooting test discussed in the previous posts. Once qualified bring whatever...
  18. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    I have absolutely no interest in pistols at 50 yards at this range but I still had to qualify to be able to use the range at all since pistols are allowed. Many of us don't practice long range pistol so the thought of having to hit a target at 50 yards in order to qualify to use the range at...
  19. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    We were able to use a rest, think sand bag, for stability. You still had to hold it and pull the trigger. I forget the target size but probably 16" black circle you had to hit. Could have been bigger. It wasn't too hard and everyone passed as I recall.
  20. Massachusetts Rifle Association - Woburn, MA

    I took my shooting test with a .44 magnum revolved and a marlin 30-30 rifle. Pistol was benched. Rifle was both benched and standing off hand. I was stressed about hitting the target at 50 yards also but with the size of the target and benching the handgun it wasn't an issue.
