Pretty much bring your own targets and stands, right?
the outdoor range i go to provides stands and cardboard to staple/tape targets to.
you have to bring your own targets.
paper plates + sharpie + tape @ all the dollar store = FTW
Depends on the type of range. Most "Sportsmans Club" type ranges will have either permanent stands at fixed ranges, or will provide moveable stands. Some will also have basic "bullseye" paper targets available.
If its a range on public land, or total hillbilly range then usually those just have dirt berms and you bring everything else.
Mine provides stands and has stand holders at 15, 25, 50, 75 and 100 yds on the rifle side; and 7, 15, 25 and 50 yds on pistol side. There are fixed 1/2 sheets of plywood to staple targets to at 125, 150, 200, and 300 yds (IIRC). Then there are a bunch of steel plates/gongs at 125, 150, 200, 300, 325, 375 and 400 yds.
They provide one target with range admission. $0.25 per target after that.
The only outdoor range i've been to was incredibly shitty. But they had the stand and you could buy targets there.
the supervised range i went to you paid like $10 and they gave you 2 targets, and they provided the stands. the unsupervised range i go to, you bring everything you need.
I go to a supervised DNR range. They have some kind of foam board posted up and you have to bring targets to staple them up to.
The three outdoor rifle ranges I visit regularly all have target stands at fixed distances (50/100 yards at the two DFW ranges, 100/200/300 yards near the folks house). Pistol ranges in DFW have fixed stands at 3/7/15 yards (the distances used for CHL qualification); one near the folks' house has moveable stands and a 50 yard berm (if you're not a jackass, you can shot rifle offhand). All ranges have provisions for tacking up paper targets.
that elm fork range in DFW is gay. no fmj...so wtf am I supposed to shoot
