Anyone in the Albany area?

Hey all,

I'm a new member here and as stated in my previous posts, I'm new to the M14/M1A

We are also new to the Upstate NY/Albany area and was wondering of there were any members here in the area who would like to go shooting.

I don't know of any areas and in my limited research it seems you have to be a member at a gun club to have amy access to a 100+ yard range.

I'm an AZ native a d I'm just used to going shooting in the desert and I don't know if there are any areas up here where I/we can go shoot.

Let me know if you are interested and hope everyone is doing well in these crazy times.

-John

JR,

I’m in Rochester NY? I belong to a range that goes out to 200 yards.

Nice. Thats about 3 hours from me but maybe one of these weekends I can make a trip up there.

I used to drive from Phoenix to Tucson once a month and do a competition down there and that was about 2.5 hour drive

Forbes over in the Pine Bush is nice but I’m not sure how they’re doing new members since all events are cancelled for the foreseeable future. And I’m betting the website is hopelessly out of date. I think it’s $50/year. Shares a driveway with the Watervliet club.

They do 600 yds on Thursday mornings on a normal year. And a thousand yards a couple times in the summer. Again, not sure how that’s going.

Drop me a pm.

Closer than Rochester plus they have 600 and sometimes 1000 yards. Thatís rare around here. For $50 per year thatís pretty good.

Forbes is the main range for XTC and LR near Albany.
There may be some small 100 yard club ranges in the area.
In the Syracuse area, there's Camillus - https://camillussportsmensclub.com/

Forbes is a great range for XTC and LR near Albany. I've driven from Rhode Island to shoot high power matches there over the years.
