    I have looked and scouted around to try and find a range in mass that has a mout facility, does anyone know of one either in mass or neighboring state? Any info is greatly appreciated.

    Hell whenever I come back from 117 I can see the shoothouses off of the side of the road on Rte 70.... they are definitely there. I doubt filthy civilians would ever be allowed in, though. [laugh]

    Not open to the public. Military / LEO only [frown] Even if you know someone, you can't use it.

    We use Blackwater (now Academi)'s facilities for USPSA matches and 3-gun. Unfortunately that's a bit far for you to drive.

    Have you had a chance to take any of their classes? Their facility sure looks nice.

    no I don't think so. it's directly across form a canoe launch about 1/4 mile from 117 on rt70 going into lunenburg on the right hand side. they are storage containers converted into MOUT like units. Last I saw they were painted desert tan.. here's a shot from google maps
