    Places to Shoot In Maine

    Hi all. Been looking for some places to shoot in southern Maine. I've looked into a few of the local gun clubs here, but with my schedule, it really doesn't make much sense for me to pay $150+ when I'd only be able to go a few times a month. So, I'm looking for any type of sand or gravel pit that the public is allowed to use, or that has the owners permission. Don't really mind driving if it's not more than an hour away. Thanks in advance!
    Once more into the fray.
    Into the last good fight I'll ever know.

    Your best bet is to ask around at our meeting on the 3rd of March.

    Sharing is caring!

    I'll be at the meeting. First time! Are they always on Saturdays? That works perfect for me;it's the only day I (kind of) have off.

    The best place is the Fryeburg Fish & Game club. The range is FREE and open free to the public. It has 3 bays, pistol, rifle and skeet/trap. Very nice facility. No range officers either. Draw from your holster, rapid fire, what ever you want

    The directions to the range are: From Brownfield head to Fryeburg. When you come to the Regional Airport on your left the range will be the next right turn (Fish and Game Rd / Fire Lane 16). I vacation on Sebago lake every year, the wifes family have a house there. The range is about 40 minutes from there.

    Thanks! I'll definitely check them out. I get withdrawals when I go for long periods of time without letting some rounds off.
