    ISO Public range in Pittsburgh

    Does anyone know of any public ranges for pistols (at least) in Pittsburgh?
    Really interested to know if there are any near Murrysville area.
    When I Google I keep finding private clubs.

    There's Anthony Arms in West Mifflin, but the guys who work there are really rude and the range fees are insanely high.
    I went to Anthony Arms once and that was the last time. I dont care if I have to drive 30 miles to go to another gun shop.

    Im new to Pittsburgh and I really dont know of anywhere else that's public.

    Maybe something here - Pennsylvania Game Commission's 29 public shooting ranges.

    Thanks! So bizarre that we need a range permit in addition to my CHP permit. I wanted to take my mom shooting the next time I'm in town. Do you think I have to get one for her too? (although I think I already know the answer)

    It is bizarre but typical in Pennsylvania. It seems like they try and squeeze every dollar they can out of people.
    Another example is recently in Pittsburgh they made the parking meters 25 cents for only 5 minutes of parking time. Instead of the normal 30 minutes for one quarter.

    So in order to park somewhere and actually get something done, you would need 3-4 dollars worth of quarters in your damn pocket. And who the hell walks around with 12 to 16 quarters in their pocket?


    Im still kinda new to Pittsburgh, but the longer I live here the more frustrated I get at the rampant stupidity.

    Ha ha. I live near DC now and most of our meters are like that. At least now though they've upgraded to using electronic machines that you can use you credit/debit card.
