    I go there to shoot from time to time, Its much better than it was a year ago. I try to go during low traffic times so I've never been issued a lane or had my license held. Have always picked up my brass without issue also.

    Thanks for the info. So question...with the assigned lanes...if I want to go shoot in my buddy's lane, is that permissible? Are the counters still bare metal with ratty carpet? How are the target boards? I used to go shoot at Banner at least 2 or 3 times a month years ago, and that those were the only complaints I would have...sometimes the wood was so badly shot up that I couldn't staple the target to it. And the bare metal countertops...kinda sucked. but I always had a good time.

    If you and a buddy are out there, you can certainly either share a lane, or shoot on each other’s target, so long as neither of you are cross-lane shooting. Cross-lane shooting creates a safety issue for some shooters, even if they’re in a completely different bay, so we require shooters to stay on the target that’s online with the bench they’re shooing from.

    All of the “bare metal” tops are gone (thankfully!), or covered with wood.

    The target backers are changed out regularly, so you’ll have plenty of wood to staple to. However, we have plans to bring in a different target system altogether to get away from the wood backers. The wood is expensive, splinters easily, makes a yuge mess, and takes too much time, energy, and money to maintain. The new system will not only address those issues, but will make the lanes way more versatile for our customers. We’re trying to get to that project ASAP!

    Thanks for the question.

    I really dont get the open carry vs. concealed carry rule. I carry a 1911 and in the winter, its concealed by my jacket but in the summer, not so much. And yes, I come to shoot my carry gun.

    Thank you for taking the time to come here and address these questions. Not all range owners/masters would be so willing (or even interested) to do so. That's a thumbs up in my book. :thumbup3:

    From what Jay has said, it seems the issue is that you would have to draw your CC weapon to shoot it. It’s the draw that isn’t allowed.

    He specified practicing draw and shoot. I just want to be able to shoot it from the bench - only drawing it once then return it when I finished 50 rounds or whatever.
