The NRA website has a listing of ranges by state.

Note: Ranges have Private or Public designations.

Hopefully someone else can add to this.

Does anyone know if Fox Valley shooting range is still in business? Man, it has been a long time since I've been around heavy metal.

Is that the one in Carpetersville? An old gravel pit. If so, NO, they closed about 10yrs ago.

Yeah, Fox is closed. There are houses in there now.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.

That is part of the reason they closed. As the area developed there were houses down range that got hit with flyers.

BTW, be careful. Read the last sticky in Ken's W&H forum rules.
