I remember a guy at the local indoor range with an AR carbine but he had put an AK style flash suppressor on it and man, it was friggin LOUD! It wasn't too long after that trip there that when you went in with an AR they looked at the flash suppressor and unless is it was a birdcage, and there weren't many others there, they asked you to not shoot it.

Yup, my indoor range here hasn't allowed any centerfire rifle caliber for probably 10 years. I also heard that very recently, they lopped the biggest pistol calibers off the list too, and aren't allowing 500 or 454 anymore...

Of course, our range here has an odd history. 2 suicides with rental guns back in the 90's when there was the waiting period for handguns prior to the automated background checks. 2nd one got the idea from the first, it was just a week or two after. Then, about a month ago, a guy shot his girlfriend on the range then killed himself.

As a result, I think our range has some unique insurance challenges.

It's real tough and hard which I like, but gives where/when it needs to.

Good strong clip.

The pistol is plenty secure, especially when wearing it.

Fits the pistol perfectly.

I'll definitely need a stiffer belt, which I've been needing anyways and get rid of this gut.

Helluva deal for $40 shipped.

That is all what I would have said about it and I too bought a nice stiffer belt for it at Sportsmans Whorehouse.

Good lord!! I am surprised that they allow anything bigger than Airsoft at that range!

Its called The Bullethole, its in a suburb south of Kansas City.


The suicides were a way around the old waiting period. The murder / suicide the other day, presumably was with a rental gun as well. They haven't said publicly, but only reason that makes sense, to drive to the range to then shoot your GF and yourself.


So yeah, 4 intentional deaths in about 15 years. Crazy stuff.

How crazy would it be, to be on the range and shots start flying the wrong direction on purpose...

Place has been there I think since the 60's. It is a pretty nice place and has two floors for shooting. On the main floor is the public range, down stairs they have IIRC two very large areas for training and private events....that is where I use to do the bowling league.

Did my first "competitive" shoot last weekend in about 20years or so. I shot like crap but rememebered how much fun it was.

It was just a fun shoot at work with civilian and swarn people shooting together...I think I came in 4th or 5th. Everyone was shooting stock pistols with factory loads execpt for one of the deputies husbands...he came out with a full on race gun and just creamed everyone....there where no rules but seemed a little over the edge to me.

I am thinking about looking around to see if anyone has anything in the area....it was realy a huge amount of fun.
