Which ranges on LI do you think are the best for 12g shotgun use? I see DSI allows them with slugs only but I’ve never been there yet.

Suffolk County Clays in Yaphank or Long Island Shooting Range of Brookhaven in Ridge.

If you just want to shoot slugs, go to Calverton.

P.S. It's weird that you liked your own post.

For Indoor ranges, DSI is under 15 yards for using shotgun slugs and costs $30 an hour. If you are a resident in Nassau County go to Mitchell Field Rifle and Pistol Range. The Range is 25 yards which is better for shooting slugs.
Calverton is outdoors and is probably the best place to use your shotgun from Birdshot to Slugs.

Does Mitchell Field allow slugs only?

Now that DSI prohibits buck is there any place on the island where you can shoot buck at typical HD type distances?

Last time I went there I swear I was told they no longer have moveable targets on the shotgun range just fixed at 50 yards. Is that correct?

Nothing like a shotgun next to you as you watch your target get peppered with holes -- LOL

Slugs only at Brookhaven, but you can shoot at various preset distances.

Slugs and Buckshot is only allowed at Islip outdoor range however these Range Officers allow birdshots if there’s no people shooting target next to your target cause bbs would be spread all over.
