Are there any 24x7 commercial ranges in Massachusetts? I know there are 24x7 clubs as I was a member of two of them when I lived there. I am talking about "for-profit" ranges. If there are none, I am curious as to why. Is it an insurance thing? Is there legislation around hours? Zoning? Does it just not make business sense? I see that places like MFS or Gun Parlor are open normal business hours, why has nobody tried 24x7 or at least later hours, like 10-11pm or so? Just curious on this.

I'd guess they don't plan on a hell of alot of business after 9pm. They would be right.

Only option would be membership in a club with such a policy and range.
When I lived up there I belonged to the Hopkinton club (now called Framingham Sportsmans?) that had a 24/7 range access for members.

Been shooting at a private club that has a 24/7 range for over 20 years. The indoor range isn't much to write home about, but at least I can do some late night shooting if I work 2nd shift!
