    I wanted to try my new rifle and went to Thunder Gun Range in Porter. I went there and the range looks very outdated and the staff is practically none and the owner was just plain weird. I had to wait 20 minutes for ceasefire so I could hang my target along with five other people. to make a long story short this is another business to avoid. I will stick with Hot wells range in 290 as the range and staff are 100% better. Who else there had a bad experience in thunder Gun Range?

    Sounds like a no bueno place to go. Not a big fan of Hot Wells either, but all in all they're not too bad (I just have personal preference of not shooting from benches if I can help it).

    I've heard mixed reviews. However, my direct experiences at Thunder Gun have been organized by the Shooter's Club that operates out of that facility in an odd sort of symbiotic relationship. Those activities, imo, are well-run and enjoyable. As a walk-in range for the public, I have no first-hand experience.

    Their website provides more info.

    You can pick up yours but the owner goes around on a golf course and of he thinks your taking more than your share he kicks you out. Also i shot with a guy that tried to start hosting cowboy matches there and after the owner saw it was popular he all the sudden jacked up the range fees a lot. The club ended their matches there

    I went there once with a friend and the range didn't impress me much. Especially the 50 and 100 yard berms. In the lane I got you couldn't see the bottom half of your target at 100 because of the 50 yard berm. Benches were something to be desired and in my area, I think I will just stick to driving to Carter's. Any body use the Bay Area shooting club off of Euell rd in Crosby? I live minutes from there but never had the chance to check it out. Do they allow walk ins or is it still members only?
