    Our club is thinking about adding a dollar per round of practice, from $4 to $5 , what is the average in your area? Thanks Butch H

    we've been paying $5.50 since 2004. They're talking about $6.

    Club had its best year ever last year...well over 2 million birds, and you can't get on a league team.

    I quit a club when they jumped from $4 to $5, neighboring club still does it for $3.50. Don't know why they wanted to drive away shooters but they did.

    $2.50 to $2 here. I wouldn't pay $5. Actually I don't think I'd pay $4. Anything higher than $3/round and I would start looking into the cost of putting my own field up in the back yard.

    Depends where you are. Some localities will tolerate, even be glad to shoot for $5 while, as you see, others can get along at nearly zero profit after paying for targets, electricity, water, sewer, insurance, and so forth......breakemall

    I stopped shooting when my club went from $3 to $4, I can understand increased costs but I think a dollar a round is simply gauging.

    Last targets I bought for my club were 11.00$ a case, thats just over 8 cents a piece, I don't know how any club can stay in operation at 2 or 2.50 around. These prices are for ohio so apparntly your club is getting a good bargain on targets Rich.

    Josh,

    If you have a bar and a kitchen you can throw targets for 2.50 a round. You can make way more on one fairly priced can of beer.

    Do you know what they call $5 per round in Florida? Half price. LOL.

    PS: Yes, I realize that the second a truck crosses from Georgia into Florida the freight costs magically and instantaneously quadruple. Yes, I realize that land in Florida is three times more expensive than land in any of the other 49 states.
