short answer: no. not in MA

now, someone who has a ton of land and shoots on their own property, perhaps.

but a free shooting range? no. I help run a range...between the hours involved keeps things maintained, paperwork, and misc crap that just needs to get done, there's no way the doors would stay open without yearly dues.

dont be cheap. buy a membership at a local club and go enjoy yourself (you do realize that going to a range can introduce you to a lot of fun new people? hell, i've met some friends because of shooting i wouldnt give up for anything)

There is a sort of "Free" outdoor target range in the Martin Burns WMA in West Newbury / Newbury. A permit is required to use it but, the permit is free if you've got a valid Mass Hunting or Sporting License.

Send your Hunting or Sporting License Number along and a S.A.S.E to the the Division of Fisheries & Wildlife Northeast District Office and they'll send you a permit to use the range.

It's usually open April - October.
