The prices and such are very reasonable! $20 bucks to shoot as long as you want, not to mention that they will still be one of the few ranges that you can shoot rifle, shotgun and black powder, Besides Kenny's range.Posted Image

When will you be open?

Target dates at the moment are weekend of April 16th for the store and May 21st for the range.

What will be hours of operation?

Monday - Friday: 10 Am to 10 PM
Saturday: 10 AM to 8 PM
Sunday: 9 Am to 6 PM

Will you have handgun and rifle ranges?

Yes. There will be 4 ranges with 8 positions in each range, all 25 yards. All ranges will be capable of handling handguns, rifles, shotguns and black powder firearms.

The range fee will be (tentatively) $20 flat fee, not hourly. Range discounts will apply to select store purchases.

Will there be yearly range passes?

Yes. Annual membership $225; family $275 ( pass holder and 1 guest )
In addition, 10 visit passes will be available for $125.

What about lockers?

Lockers will be available: Small (handguns only) $125/yr; Large $175/yr. You can also store your own safe $150/yr.

Access to lockers during business hours. We will have a 24/7 security system monitoring the premises.

There will be 2 - 6'X8' private storage areas available for rent.

What about my range pass from the Bensenville range?

All range passes that were still current upon our closing will be pro-rated at the new range.

Additional information will be posted as we get closer to the actual opening dates

That's great news. $20 for shooting a rifle is a good price. I wish they were a bit cheaper on the handgun though. $20 seems a bit high for shooting a handgun...

How I have waited for this day. It being practically next door should make up for the higher range fee. No more driving out to crook county for me.

$20 is really reasonable in this day and age, given the insurance problems and OSHA/EPA troubles.
But the $125/10 pass is very good, and the annual if you use it is actually cheap.
I've gotten spoiled belonging to two or three outdoor clubs but this is a good bad-weather option.
Winter may change to summer, but the silly season goes on and on...

This is the same price that they used to charge at the old facility in bensenville. Where the heck can you shoot an AR all day for 20 bucks now days?

I think they were $10 for the handgun-only side back in Bensenville, and they only charged $20 if you wanted to shoot rifle. I like that rate structure better...

You people in Chicagoland really do get to pay out of the nose to shoot, don't you?

Down here next door to God's country (that would be any state my FL permit is recognized, BTW), it's $50-$75/year, shoot all you want (outdoors).

With any luck, the new health insurance bill won't tax range time like they are taxing tanning bed time.

Me being here in Villa Park I am really excited to have a range in Lombard! I think I will buy the year pass.

I would love it though if I could find a relatively close outdoor range.

IMHO, the 'good' local Chicagoland ranges charge a single visit fee. Those that charge by the hour do not get my business. I target shoot for relaxation and don't like being on a stopwatch.

Yep Lou, thats when we/i go shooting the most. Crappy weather or winter time when there is nothing better to do.

You are close to me Heavy (i'm in Roselle), we'll have to meet up at gun world when the range opens and do some shooting together.

I shot once at the old place in Bensenville and never went back. Had to use their cheap ammo that they charged out the rear for, couldn't use a holster, and the range itself was set up by idiots.
