Northeast Ohio members ... ????????????

OK for any Northeast Ohio members and Cleveland area members, do any of you know anything about a new shooting range opening up in the Parma area? Its called the Parma Armory on Hauserman Road. Any info would be greatly appreciated. The info I stumbled upon was a November 2016 opening but haven't heard or seen anything in the news ....

Thanks for posting! I did not know about them. I will have to check it out next time I'm in that area. Even though I am 5 mins from Stonewall, I don't go there to shoot. Too restrictive. I shoot in the basement at work or if my kids want to shoot we go to Valley View Range in Ashland on a warm day and shoot outside.

rm63 ... Don't know if you ran across their facebook page, but it indicates they are on schedule for an early February opening for their range. It also appears that their website is currently under construction and according to their flyer, you can get a "charter membership" for a mere $2,000.00

I have heard OF it, but nothing ABOUT it. I have to say though that I'm not keen on the idea of "Applying" or dropping $2k on an annual membership. For that it better come with my choice of "bucket list" guns and 24/7 range times.

I've only been to Stonewall a couple of times but found acceptable. Curious, what makes you say they're "too restrictive"?

Maybe it was just the clerk at the time.
I used to go there when I was 16-22. (I became a cop at 23 and use our dept range). So I didn't go there for a long time.

I stopped in there two years ago to buy a box of .32 ammo so I could test fire a gun we confiscated. They refused to sell it to me unless I bought a gun. At the same time, the guy told another customer that he could only load one round at a time in his AR. They also have a no headshot rule. I had to argue with the clerk that I was not buying a gun from there and I was not shooting the gun there. I really only needed one round to test fire the gun at work but would buy a box and just keep it at work in case we got any other .32s. I did the same with .410 and .308. Calibers we don't carry but have confiscated.

Maybe it's changed now, but I haven't been back after that day. I still use the uniform part of Stonewall, just not the range or gun store.

I'm not allowed to take the kids (14 and 10 now) to work so when the kids want to shoot, we drive (almost an hour) to Ashland and use an outdoor range. We're planning on doing that this Saturday if the weather stays above 50. We need to get some glove time in so the kids know what to expect.

I have a free range session at Select Fire in Berea (bought my last silencer there) but I haven't bothered to try it since I can shoot at work.

I'm retiring (hopefully) in about 6 years, I plan on moving outside Cuyahoga county with a few acres so I can shoot in my backyard.

When Parma Armory opens up, I'll give them a try just to see if I can take the kids someplace closer.

You are right about the one shot rule in AR's and they need to inspect your ammo ... not sure where you live but try Hickory Ridge in Brunswick Hills / Medina in Medina County. Small place (8) lanes but he leaves you alone for the most part unless you are doing something stupid ...

News to me. Keep us posted. $2K, no. I wonder how much they'll charge by the hour.

rm63 ... Mine is hard earned as well . I guess the charter membership is for those who have more dollars than "sense" . While I doubt they will have many takers, with the number of lefties purchasing firearms after the election you never know .

The $2K Charter Membership will certainly create an "exclusive, special privileges" class of members to whom that is very important . . . being above all the riff-raff of everyday folks. I've seen this happen many times in organizations and internet websites. Some folks seriously do believe they are "more equal" than the rest of us, and are willing and able to pay for that privilege.

JMHO

I'm in Broadview. I'll give Hickory Ridge a shot. I don't like "joining" places. Have to pay the fee. Have to volunteer time. Too busy. I really like the place in Ashland. No one bothers anyone. We let each other try out stuff. Complete strangers.

Here's a photo from election day when my son wanted to try out his new suppressor. I feel safe enough that I just leave my stuff all out on the table. We took that half of the range and another family took the other half. $5/hr/person. Can't beat that.

There are a few indoor ranges that I shoot at that offer "memberships" and all of them have a waiting list ... SOOOOOO I agree with you there are more people out there that have more $$$$$$ than sense!

Am I reading that correctly? $2000 yearly membership? Wow, someone thinks mighty high of themselves. For that kind of money, they going to have Beyoncé perform at the "annual party"?
