    Bout time. 5-100yd high powered rifle range w/ electronic scoring system.

    Accepts anything even up to a .50bmg :bowdown:

    Time to go sight in my rifles :wiggle:
     
  2. Shoot a .50bmg @ 5 yards!
     
  3. Damnit, it keeps blowing my target over!

    Now that I know it's there, I plan on going probably next weekend.

    The site is www.vra-ohio.com
    Apparently it opened in October, I used to go there to shoot handguns all the time.
     
  6. That's so cool. No ranges around here let you fire .50bmg, and none of them are 100 yard indoor ranges. The electronic scoring thing on monitors is really cool too, unless you shoot poorly and everyone can see and laugh at your scores.

    I don't want to be in there when someone shoots off a .50 BMG. It's fucking loud enough when some asshole is blowing through rounds of S&W 500 :rofl:

    Anyone know what the startup costs are on an indoor range? I've been thinking about putting together a business plan for something like that. There'a huge hole in the market around here for something like that. In the Charlotte area you have to go over an hour in any direction to find a rifle range that's not members only. There are a couple pistol ranges and a indoor "rifle" range that tops out at 25 yds, lol. But that's pretty much it.

    I mean you have to build a backstop, put together the lane separators, buy the target hanger contraptions and build a badass ventilation system, what else? I'm assuming there's a ton of liability involved?

    And if you have a range, you sell ammo there usually. I know a lot of ranges sell their own reloads but isn't there a bunch of licensing in that too?
