    Nobody is a fan of Hot Wells, it's just the closest range and convenience sometimes wins. I like the people just fine, I just don't like the ultra harsh restrictions and the lack of options. If I want to do anything beyond basic testing or sighting in a gun, I'm giving my money to someone else.

    It's really not a shooter's destination. It's basically a place for new comers to get a little trigger time with the gun they bought last week. That's what they're geared toward, and that's all the staff knows. Heck, even setting up a chronograph involved teaching the range kids what a chronograph was :)

    Lol I don't like the restrictions one bit, and the only real beef I have with the people is that it's a bunch of kid RSO's (they act fine though, I've never felt they treated me unfairly). As someone that just came off of an active military combat unit, the 5 seconds between shots for a pistol kind of eats at me. It's like the longest time ever lol.

    5 seconds between shots on a pistol range. I knew there was a reason I have always driven past that place. I (continue to) pass.

    Lol 5 seconds might be an exaggeration slightly (although it may not be). I think it was one every 1-3 seconds on rifle and one every 3-5 seconds on pistol (then again I've not been in quite a long time). I'm sure some of the regulars could clarify, but they consider anything faster than their specified intervals to be rapid fire (lol).

    You can mag dump a 10/22 next to a guy firing an AR-10 without being noticed though :m16:

    Hot Well is better than Carter's Country that for sure. I went to Thunder Range last week. I don't know how anyone gets a good shooting stance with that BS they set-up on the 100yd lane. I got frustrated and left.
