Is anyone thinking about purchasing a DSI shooting range membership? I was on DSI's website last night, it looks like they should be opening their range soon. It looks like they will have different levels of membership. I may look into the silver level which is $295 for the year and includes unlimited one hour range sessions. It cost me $22 per hour at Mitchel Field so 14 visits to DSI range I will break even. The only drawback is the range is only 11 yards so it would be only short range shooting. The plus side to this it may finally motivate me to apply for the pistol permit. It seems they are also gonna rent firearms which is also cool. Another reason to get my pistol permit, I cant rent a handgun without one in the great communist state of NY.

I'm interested as I'm more into defense shooting so 11 yards are about the max you'd be shoot in the home.

I bought the Founding Fathers membership at the end of last year. Looks like the range may be opening sometime in November. I cannot wait, I will definitely be getting my money's worth.

All I have to say is congratulations to the folks at DSI. After decades of hear people talking about doing this they have gotten it done. No easy feat. Kudos!

I remember them telling me I could shoot my M/44 there. Don't know if this is still the case, but if it is I apologize to you all in advance.

We have not finalized the policies on rapid fire and drawing from the holster to fire. We do intend to have the ability to do these, but need to work out the logistics and qualifications.

Range is rated for any pistol, low velocity rifle up to .50 (this would include all pistol calibers as well as .450 bushmaster, .458 SOCOM and .50 beowulf) and high velocity rifle to .308 caliber (includes .30-06, .300WM and .338). The only prohibited caliber is .50 BMG. Shotgun will be slug only initially. Since the range is shorter, we MAY allow 00 Buck after we do some testing on spread patterns.

I find shooting my 16" AR with 1x power scope close range very challenging. Speed is incorporated with accuracy. Trying to obtain quick accurate follow up shots is challenging as well. That's why I am interested in rapid fire. I am almost finished building a light weight ar308 with a Geisele SD3G trigger and am really curious to see how the it will perform with rapid fire, with 308 none the less.
