    Hi I am looking to join a club near Newburyport. Can be in MA or NH.
    Hopefully both indoor and outdoor ranges. 200 yard or longer rifle would be great.

    Thanks!

    Don't think there are any 200 yd. ranges near Nbpt, but there is Country Pond in Newton, NH., Danvers F&G, Danvers, Ma., Andover Sportsmen's Club, N. Andover, Ma. All are good clubs near you.

    state line has a 200yd range. 15 mins from you or so in Amesbury by the NH line. no indoor. I shoot trap there, great bunch of guys. they also do 300yd shoots sometimes by closing the trap field and shooting to the 100yd range. that looked fun

    I live in Amesbury and from what ive been told its incredibly difficult to get into stateline. The only thing I can find is a po box, no website or number so I have no idea how to even try and join

    I belong to Country Pond - very happy there. Check out Chester, I think they might have at least a 200 yard rifle range.

    Not sure why that would have ever made a difference in the first place. I live in mass and have been a member of a NH gun club for years. Why would the NH p and r thing have ever kept you from joining a NH club?

    I've shot trap at Gtown for years. I am a member of Country pond. Country pond is definitely a better club. For starts the indoor range is 24 hours and you can shoot up to 44 magnum. Plenty of events going on all the time and well attended. Pin shoots plate shoots 3 gun trap bullseye cf and rimfire leagues. Plate shoot practice every wed night from april to sep. Its a great club. And yes they are filling up but not near cap yet. Took in 17 new members last month. If you are interested in joining go on the website and look at coming events......green events are open to the public. Show up to a few and ask if someone will sponsor you

    Your information is incorrect. Country Pond has had a membership cap for several years. We are nowhere near it.
