    We need to get a range for competition here in Eastern NC.
    Funny you say that. Hopefully this time next year, we'll have one for that very purpose in the Pactolas area. We already have steel out to 1k, the real work is getting started this year.

    Glad I found this thread, just moved to NC from FL. I'm in Moorseville so Frontline is about 3 hours for me but I'll have to ride over and check it out for sure. I'd like to find somewhere that has some AI's so I can actually put my hands on one before dropping $4k lol.

    I'm going out of town next weekend unfortunately but I'll take you up on that for sure! Maybe we can get up and check out the range one weekend in March?

    Anyone east of Greenville i got a group of guys that shoot every other Saturday on private land. Nearest town would be Fairfield, nc.
    I’m in Greensboro there’s a couple of us. Where do you guys meet up? And what distances do you have?

    Don't know why it took me this long to find this thread. I live about 30 mins e/se of charlotte and joined a relatively new range in Ellerbe, NC (near Rockingham). It's called coleman's creek training center, sits on 640+ acres, currently has 8 ranges ranging from 100 yds to 1 mile. They have plans to have 40 ranges on the property within 5 years. They just had their first annual sniper comp on Aug 29, 30. Great range and great people. All the instructors for the available classes are either retired or active duty SF shooters. My home away from home.

    What day did you join? I was working the competitor sign-in table on saturday. I'm planning on heading down there next friday to work on some loads for a couple rifles. May test drive a handgun I just got too. I love that place.

    I joined online. I still need to go and sign the releases. We went and took a tour of the place a couple weeks ago and I knew I was going to join.

    If you are wanting to join sooner rather than later might be a good idea as they are capping at 500 members and they were at 300 when I was down there a few weeks ago.

    same here. Near Elizabeth City there seems to be a large area without any public Shooting ranges. Nearest one I know of is Norfolk County Rifle Club in Virginia and they are closed to new members.

    I’m in Dunn NC. I go with a friend (he’s a member) as a guest to Woody’s. It’s always been a great experience. I love how it’s not over crowded there. I thought about FL. I’ve heard it’s always busy and I hate to drive all that way and can’t get to the 1k range.

    Look into Coleman’s Creek.

    Just looked and about the same time from Dunn as it is for me up near Lillington. About 1:40 but worth the drive.

    ^^^^^^ What he said. I'm a member at CCTC and I can't think of a better place, and with the proposed additions they're planning for in the next few years, I personally think it will be one of the premier ranges on the east coast.

    Academi in Moyock doesn’t offer their ranges to the public, but they do have some High Power competitions and training courses you can pay for. Been thinking about taking my AR-15, adding a 4.5x scope and trying high power.

    Also, there’s some kind of proposed shooting range about 15 minutes from Moyock. It’s on the NC State website, but no idea why it’s been dormant for several years. We can hope though.

    I know Bob the match director at Acadimi for the NCRR shoots but looking for something a little more flexible and less square range-ish but I know I’m being picky... I also rarely have weekends off so timing is an issue. I’ll look into what you posted and let you know what I find. Thank you.

    I live in Camden and could walk to Academi if I crossed through about 5 large farms between my house and them.

    For those of you in NE NC send me a PM and I'll let you know when I go shooting at our Farm in Perquimins/Pasqoutank County. It's planted now but around Christmas through Feb we shoot out there. Depending upon on how far you want to go we can go from 800 to 1500 yards. Usually we shoot during the week days.
    Back in 2010 and 2012 I held some matches on our farm called the Pasquotank Precision Rifle Shootout, Elizabeth City NC.
