I am fond of A Place to Shoot on the south side.

Don't know about ammo, probably "A Place to Shoot" call them. However, my favorite range is The Bullet Hole. Call them too.

Bracken Range is the best.

Mission ridge for ammo. They have tons of different 308 on the shelf. 100 yard Indoor range is just like any other indoor range. Place is nice though.

‘A place to shoot’ ain’t bad. It’s just outdoors and Facility’s aren’t much.

I hate all the ranges here, spoiled by the range in Cheyenne. If I have to go to a range here I usually end up at The Bullet Hole, it has up to 300 yards and lighted 100 yard range to extend hours. Go when they're not busy or people will be constantly stopping to go change targets. The old range officer is completely deaf and he'll yell random incoherent stuff at you, just wave him off and he goes away.

I don’t what’s up with JM ( the owner) but both times I was there in October it was really run down, no target back drops and no sand bags was a problem on the 100yard , and that cleft lip guy was a major jerk , I don’t want to change ranges but this place has seen better days unfortunately

I go cause itís never crowded, maybe 4-5 people on all ranges combined, and closer than our personal ranges. Itís never been anything fancy but will get the job done. I always take my own bags but yes some bags and rests in some of the lanes are poor. Cleft lip feller, well heís been that way since I can remember. I always just ignore him and leave him to his cigarettes.

JM's home burned down a couple of months ago. Him and his wife have been living in a travel trailer out front of their home, while it's being repaired.

The cleft lip guy, Mike, has always been a jerk for as long as I can remember. I just ignore it and go on.

The place is getting run down, that's for sure. One of the rifle ranges, all of the railroad ties are down, the backboards need changing and I haven't seen a rifle rest that wasn't damaged.

I usually take my own gear when I go. The range is about 10 minutes from my house so it's very convenient.
