    Where is your favorite shooting range, how much does it cost, why do you like it more than other places?

    I would also be interested in your least favorite shooting range and why.

    -West Desert
    -Free (+gas)
    -Shoot by my rules - ceasefire when I want - moving drills that you can't do at regular ranges - pistols, shotguns, rifles, everything is welcome!

    Bountiful Lion's Club Range

    They are pretty easy going, it's only $5-6 for the whole day and the proceeds go to fight blindness.

    Maybe if I am down that way but with gas prices the way they are I could shoot another 50 rounds for the price of driving there and back.

    Stansbury park ...... I-80 west till Tooele exit .... take exit twards tooele, at 2nd intersection/light turn left , follow paved road till it makes a left and You go staight onto gravel road first right turn and follow to open area ..... in case ppl are wondering its easey to get to and it only takes less then 2 min. to get to from the traficlight u turn left on! the best thing is that there is a Maveric gasstation 300 ft straight thru the light! and walmart is 10 min. staight thru the light into Tooele!

    i used to live in Stansbury and that town seems to house ALL of SLCs finest and they are ALL cool with the shooting goin on there .... i have met sooooo many cool ppl out there even a gun smith/holster maker so don't be shy and check it out ..... own rules and bring targets always lots of fun!

    For those that shoot in the west desert(I do most of the time)an idea-



    Always take an extra yard rated garbage bag with you, and pick up that much EXTRA junk that inconsiderate dolts leave out there!!

    We shouldn't have to, but I don't really mind the extra 15 minutes it takesto keep it from looking like a garbage dump out there.

    I enjoy the West mountain of Payson. Plenty of different terrain to shoot on. I also like to pack out more trash than I bring in. If anyone is near Payson, and would like to know where it is, just type these numbers into Google maps. 40.036815,-111.818247

    For all of those who do the west desert. Where exactly do you go? I wouldn't have the first clue where to go. Do you just drive off the road somewhere until you find a good spot? Do you have a certain place you go? Some directions or GPS coords would be great

    I usually go right here. All kinds of natural backstops, on the west side of the road.

    If it gets too bad, you can always hop a couple fences and take a dip in the murky waters of the Utah Lake!

    Yeah but you can't ride 4-wheelers in a shooting range!

    Some nice long range shooting if you don't mind walking alot.

    It's a little more secluded then the area that jaredbelch goes.

    And the road is tame enough you can get a car there.

    Or you could buy a natural gas powered vehicle, and drive there for pennies!

    Well, we posted links to maps that contain the coordinates.

    By the way, on the map I linked to, I shoot right under the power lines.

    They buzz nicely.
