    FSRSA is about ten minutes drive from the Willow Grove exit of the PA turnpike - shoots are Weds/Sat/Sun.

    Holmesburg Fish & Game is in the northeast corner of the city itself (http://www.holmesburgfishandgame.com/) - I am not sure of the shoot days.

    How far are you willing to drive? West Chester Gun Club and Oxford Gun Club are not that far from Philly.

    closer would be the two clubs near Media, PA


    Delaware County Sportsmen http://www.delawarecountysportsmen.com/


    Delaware County Delaware County Field & Stream http://www.dcfs.org/


    Also Valley Forge; public range in Delaware - Ommelanden (unfortunately State run and not what it used to be).

    There's another large club in NJ across the Delaware Memorial bridge - Quinton Sportsmen's Club, Inc. (have not been there, but heard good reviews). Good clubs in NJ also at Pine Belt http://www.pinebeltsc.com/ and Pine Valley http://www.pinevalleygc.com/

    Thanks. When my son was at Wharton, that's where he shot, and I went there a few times. Do they still shoot flyers there?

    I figured some developer would have bought an Eminent Domain deal from the pols for that vaulable, private and exclusive real estate.

    But, I suppose, if things have not changed, PGC had plenty of main-line friends, too.

    Langhorne Rod & Gun in Holland, PA, Bucks County. About 45 minutes north of Philly. Trap every Thursday evening, 6 - 9pm. I think it's $4 or $5 per round for non-members. Sporting clays once a month from 9:30 - 3pm, $14/50 targets non-member.

    Lehigh Valley Sporting Clays (www.lvsclays.com). Nice 17 station course around an abandoned wooded rock quarry. $38/100 birds. You can rent a golf cart too if you hate walking.

    The Philly area is very large -- if you could give us a better idea of where you are starting from, we can give you a more difinitive list.

    There are a ton of clubs around Phiily, some just trap, some multi-discipline. If you want to go to one place and shoot multiple things (i.e. trap, skeet, maybe 5 stand) let us know that also as that cuts the list down.

    Lots of option -- I have 3 clubs (2 trap only, 1 with multiple shotgun sports, pistol, rifle, archery, etc) within 20 minutes of my home.
