Default Poway range opening

Poway Weapons and Gear announced the opening of their new range in Poway! This is close to me and very exciting. What a move during times like these. Third largest in country...

Not close to me but hopefully it will take the crowds away from the other ranges.

Best of luck to them!

Those prices are crazy. $200 for approval to shoot from a holster? I guess if you live nearby it could be worth it, but those prices are a little too high for me (although I have been called cheap from time to time ). Its nice see more ranges being built.

Quote:
For the general shooter to use our range there is an annual safety briefing the staff needs to give the shooter at no cost. However, if shooters would like to get Dynamic Range Certified there is a Dynamic Range class that they must take or be waived by the Range staff for having specific and unique qualifications. The Dynamic Range class will be a 6 hour course with a cost of $200.

Costs of doing business in Poway is very high. Especially for the business owner. I'm glad I don't have so far to drive anymore.

Zooks, they are spendy. Cheapest annual is $499.00 and that only gets you the 25 yard range. Our club charges $150.00/year and we get the whole kit and caboodle (archery, shotgun, rifle out to 400 yards and two handgun ranges).

I was reading somewhere a few weeks ago that they just got the approval to build/open.

I think it might be in an already existing building.

I think I'll stick to DGM in Santee with those prices. One thing they have going for them is the 50 yd. and 100 yd. range, but that's why I go to SBR&G.

Sounds nice, I can see it being popular despite the higher prices. I bet there's a lot of new gun owners in the SD area who can easily afford it and would rather not drive far.

Poway or not, that is spendy. This is not La Jolla or Beverly Hills. I am looking forward to seeing their daily use rates.

They're probably in over their heads when it comes to start up costs and need to recoup some of that money ASAP. Prices should level out once the hype dies down and they do realize they're not competitively priced.

You don't understand. It's a "Dynamic Range Class." This is training.

Then you can sit back and moan about how boring it is when you can't run around, do tactical rolls etc etc etc like a true Operator.

^^^Lol. They'll take your $5K for a membership and then you'll get killed while you're wandering around the office spaces.

In any case, I can't see the web page at work, are the daily non-member rates posted yet?

Ultimately, I wish I had that kind of coin...

I think I'll stick with shooting USPSA. Its a lot cheaper, even though I still don't get to do tactical rolls...... Although paying $5000 to get my name on the "Founders Wall" is tempting.

P2k just added a couple more 50 yard lanes (total of 4). They had only two and added two more by taking from the 100 yard lanes. Still have 6 100 yard lanes.

They need to add more pistol lanes. Sat and Sunday there is 30 minute wait 1 hour after opening.

Just the building alone will be over $5mil not to include probably $400k in hvac. Then bullet traps which are $1200 ish a linear foot....
Someone has to put up some serious coin for a facility of this magnitude

All,

Of course we will have public lane rates. Since we will have 3 different ranges (a 25 yard, 50 yard and 100 yard) the lane rates will vary slightly. As of now we are looking at $15 an hour for the 25. $16 for the 50 and 100. The benefit for the memberships is you get front of the line priveldges and reservations!

We look forward to you all checking us out as we continue to build the range at www.weaponsandgearrange.com

I think they're scheduled to open spring 2014. but those member prices are hard to swallow. It took me awhile to buy a membership at DGM, but you "break even" going twice a month, which is reasonable and figured that would be easy to get my monies worth. I suppose front of the line priveledge is nice, but not at those prices. and as a nonmember I could understand reservations, but think I'd get annoyed with someone "cutting" in line because they're a member. I'm sure ill end up going once in a blue moon to shoot somewhere nearby when I want to shoot pass 25 yards, but other than that based on what I'm seeing ill probably renew my membership at DGM although I was thinking I would've bought a membership here once mine expired.

edit: looking at the platinum: at least family members would be free. but I suppose this would depend on what they define as family. if they mean household family members, or all/any family members.

I sure was excited when I saw this thread, becuase I live in PQ...then I saw the prices! Jeezzzzzz

The market will be the last word - best of luck to them! I at least look forward to it taking the heat of the other ranges...

looking further at the founding membership, with having a family of 5 this may pay off in just a couple of years. ill have to check and see if this extends to sister, brother in law, uncle, nephew and the such. if it did, I would strongly consider it.

500 a year? Wow...

At 15/hr one would need to go to the range for 33.3 hours in one year to break even.
