What would be My best bet on a Club

Postby newguy » Sat Jan 04, 2014 9:01 am

So I have like max 500 dollars to spend on a club membership. Here what I am looking for.

1. No more then 30 minute ride from Portland
2. Fishing spot.
3. Pistol and Rifle Range.

These are nice but not a deal breaker.

1. Some sorta indoor shooting range.

I don't hunt so that option is not important.

Also if someone belongs to a club they recommend and they require sponser will someone hook me up by sponsoring me

Bell City has indoor 22 range, outdoor pistol and rifle. No pond. $400+ the first year and $198 each year after. I don't believe there is a waiting period.

You could put your name on the waiting list as some members will drop out at the end of the month.

Think that what I may do. I been looking at alot of clubs but most are big on hunting and trap and skeet shooting and honestly that really doesn't matter one bit to me.

Wallingford. Pond, pistol and rifle ranges, (not indoor), open membership spots, no sponsor needed, under your budget about $350 or so the first year, under 30 minutes from Portland.
