Barely.
It was sold.
The new buyer is trying to make it more profitable and has raised the range rental prices to all the clubs that run matches there.
As a result, most clubs have reduced the amount of ranges that they rent in order to keep their costs down.
This has killed off all the matches with any distance much past about 75yds.
The clubs that are still there are running a pistol match every week to try to make enough money to pay the new rent.
It's not going to end well.

I don't know what's happening with the first range that used to be the "public" range.

The public range used to let you put paper targets out to 400 and had steel to almost 1000, but the steel plates are so big that you can hit them with iron sighted rifles.
This makes the steel useless for precision work.

There are some pretty small plates out there.

One of my customers was there sometime between Monday evening and today test firing a barrel I chambered/threaded on Monday.

I think it’s $25 now on the public side and the little Latino guy still works there and I think he’s doing an homage to Mike Thompson (or whatever the f___ “Handlebars” name was) with his PR. I suppose it’s worth it to be able to set paper out to 300 yards and shoot steel at a 1000 (besides, that’s what hearing protection is also for).
