    Well, I only know of a couple of alternatives a bit south of you. There's Target World on Kemper Rd. in the Tri-Couty Mall area north of Cincinnati. It's kind of expensive, as ranges go, but you can rent guns there and set the target distance with movable hangers. There is also supposedly a new mom & pop range that's an extension of the gun shop in New Miami (just outside Hamilton). I don't know the name of the place and it's only been up a few months, but I can look into it. The only other alternatives I know of are private clubs or knowing someone with private land outside the city limits.

    As for me, I'm on probation and can't handle guns outside of work for probably a couple of months yet. I'd be glad to go on a range trip then though.

    Where is the range in New Miami? I get kinda sick of Target World, would be intrestied in checking into that. The only other public range I know of is way down Independence, KY called Shooters Supply. Never been there myself, but other have had good things to say about it.

    I don't know offhand - will look into it. I'm not allowed to go for a couple of months yet. It's run by the people that own the mom & pop gun shop there - you might be able to find a phone listing for them in the meantime.

    If you are coming up rt. 30 (east) you'd get off at the Harrison Ave. exit and go rt. and three lights later, the third is Shepler and it's across the street alittle to ur right.

    hrs: m-f 9-8 Sat. 9-5 And on... Sunday too! 11-4!

    330 456-1041

    Hope that helps!

    I've got a 25 meter (and less!) range set up in the side yard. You're more than welcome to come over and use it for free.

    Rifles OK too? Am I invited too?

    I can't find any local rifle ranges to shoot my 7.62x39.

    If your coming from Hamilton on 3rd street (127), its located on the right side of 127 just as you enter New Miami. New Miami is a real small burg. Will be easy to find
