What are the options ? Only thing I could think of is Manchester .
It be a party of 12 with mix of gun owners and non gun owners .

Granite State Indoor Range in Hudson might be able to do something

or have a few of your friends bring a small arsenal to a range near you and go at it. Toss the friends some money for use/cleaning and ammo and RO duty.

MFS, but I believe you'd be relegated to pistols and 22 rifles (not sure on the second part).

Or you could try Bob's Tactical if you're feeling lucky.

Yeah I just don't know what range todo it at .
I have a decent collection And I'm sure some of my friends would help.
But I think the best man wants to have a few mg's also .

We had part of my bachelor party at MFL last year. They were great in accomodating us. I brought my entire gun collection for the most part including rifles, they were very cool with everything. We rented the full auto Tommy Gun which was awesome. Price wise, wasnt too bad either. Give em a call.

I enlisted the help of a member of my club and we just brought out all our stuff to the range. We kinda set up on the far side and blasted away all morning. 1 on 1 instruction with me and my friend. Good time was had by all. All was safe and no range rules broken.

Also, my club hosts a Ladies' Day event and we usually get a couple Bachelorette parties that roll through.

Of course, all alcohol is AFTER the range time and guns are put away.

a buddy in work had his there also, but they had no collection to bring and they wanted to fire automatic stuff also. he said they took care of them and a good time for all. but pricey when the smoke cleared.

1) Take the noobs to the range a couple times and get them acclimated to shooting.

2) Once you see that they are safe and they enjoy shooting, take them to a car shoot and have your bachelor party of twelve temporarily change into a bachelor party of 100.

3) Go out after the car shoot and continue celebrating.

4) If the groom wants to give out badass gifts. Give out gift certificates to BFS classes so they get their LTCs and thus you will have made MA less sucky. Regular gift certs for guys who already have heir LTCs.

Make sure the facility you intend to attend knows you're coming - a much better chance of not being turned away/delayed if you coordinate with your hosts.

MachineHead Advice #1 is a great idea - get the players acclimated to what may happen with 3x as many friends

No question my recommendation would be manchester firing line. Not cheap, but they certainly have the hardware and the facilities. They are also pretty good about keeping things safe.

my buddy went to Manchester for his BIL party. Not sure how far in advanced they planned it but 10 guys and the guy planning it booked a few different guns in advanced. That's the info my friend gave me. Says it was not to bad price wise and a lot cheaper than the strip joint casino run that so many have done.

I personally would do a rental range then go out. then theres no need to worry about any guns or ammo to be locked up , brought home or forgotten in the wrong car.

We did MFL for my friends wedding last summer.

12 of us, rented out 5 lanes. They did a nice job with it.

I brought one of my SCARs, a KAC, and a few other rifles for the guys to shoot and let one of the "Safety Officers" (they dont have typical Range Officers, just guys that watch the flow of the lanes I guess) shoot the SCAR when he asked. He was respectful and waited until we were close to done. He pulled the groom aside towards the end after and let him shoot a Suppressed MP5 with a couple boxes of ammo because I let him try my SCAR. Nice guys overall.

Just make sure you have someplace to lock up the guns if you're heading out after. Downtown Manchester is a shithole.

Assachusetts when necessary. NH when possible
I wouldn't mind brining some of my toys . Just don't want to drive with them after .

Pro-tip: Have an NES'r or other licensed individual drive them from the range when you're done. Then start the second part of the BP.

Plan B would be to rent a passenger van or mini-bus and have a DD who is also licensed. My 2c.
