I'm planning to hit Lytle Creek tomorrow for the first time. How is it? Do i need to bring my own targets? :confused:

It used to be nice until they told the belt fed shooters they were no longer welcome.

Just make sure you don't take hi-caps out there.

I have only been to Lytle Creek so I cannot compare it to other ranges but I like it. I usually go 3 to 4 times a week during my vacation times and I stay away from it during the weekends because I hear it is a madhouse. Even during the week, it can get crowded there especially on Fridays. You can buy targets there or you can bring your own. I usually do both and I bring duct tape to because after the first time hitting their targets to plant them in the ground they fall apart… that and the ground is rock hard. Also, bring a hammer so you can pound your targets in to the ground / rock quarry. I will probably be there on Wednesday this week. I hope you like it as much I do and good luck.

Do not bring high caps there!

Target stands will help. The ground is hard as rock. Get there early for a covered spot with a decent table. The overflow gets no shade and shaky tables.
Bring cool drinks. :)

I have not been in a while simply because it's too crowded on the weekends, I brought standard capacity 20 rounders for my M1A and nobody said a word.

It't nocer than I thought it would be, and I understand they will let me fire my cannon there, black powder.

It's about one step up from BLM on your own shooting, Same as Burro.

Just got home from Lytle Creek..
Nice place, everyone was helpful, wasnt crowded and the ground was not too hard to pound-in the cheap-o target stand.

How close were you able to shoot your Beretta?
