    Target Shooting in Milwaukee

    Where is there to go other than Badger? I'm looking for a place with in a 50 Mile radius of Milwaukee.
    I recall one some where on HWY 41 or 45 just before West Bend. I don't remember where and the name.
    Thanks.

    Depending on where you are in Milwaukee there's an indoor range in Deerfield. Google Maps says 65 miles, but that's from way over by the lake in Milwaukee.

    There's Midwest Shooter's Supply in Allenton or thereabouts. Nice place. Google it for the location.

    There's The Shooter's Shop at roughly 84th Street and Lincoln in West Allis. There's also Fletcher Arms in Waukesha at essentially Hwy 164 and Main Street.

    Shooters Shop or Fletchers for indoor. Both places are pistol caliber only.

    I "donate" most of my ammo to McMillers in Eagle. At least over the summer months. Out door range, $15 gets you the full day at the 15-200 yard ranges, shoot what ever you got except for 50BMG. 300 yard range is extra.
    It's all fun and games until someone flash bangs the kids.

    I thought that it was a thread about a shooting at a Target in Milwaukee. I am relieved to find out that I was wrong.

    Shooter's in West Allis does allow rifles with fully frangible ammo. They sell .223, 7.62x39, and .308 but I've been told you can find it online.

    There is also Fletchers in Waukesha and Shooters in Racine. That's about it for public ranges besides mcmiller that I know of.
    “The 1911 pistol remains the service pistol of choice in the eyes of those who understand the problem. Back when we audited the FBI academy in 1947, I was told that I ought not to use my pistol in their training program because it was not fair. Maybe the first thing one should demand of his sidearm is that it be unfair.” — Col. Jeff Cooper, GUNS & AMMO, January 2002

    I've done all my shooting at Fletcher's, & can heartily recommend them. They're nice people.
    Am considering spending some money at Shooter's Shop, but haven't gotten there yet, even though it's closer.
    They were nice enough to help me with a problem with my KelTec without laughing... at least while I was around.

    Just an FYI, Shooter's Shop is extremely expensive. I enjoy shooting at Fletcher's for more than one reason.

    +1 Shooter's Shop pistol prices are ridiculous. Range prices were in-line with Fletcher's though.

    machine gun (usually in rifle calibers but the larger ones have evolved into using .50 BMG and larger ammunition...ie 20mm, 37mm, etc.)

    –noun
    a small arm operated by a mechanism, able to deliver a rapid and continuous fire of bullets as long as the trigger is pressed.

    Also "sub machine gun" which is the same thing but uses smaller caliber ammunition such as what is used in pistols.

    Definition submachine gun:
    –noun
    a lightweight automatic or semiautomatic gun, fired from the shoulder or hip.
