    Well we spent a day in the Va. Mtns., stopped at the Homestead in Hot Springs. They said I could shoot trap. Now check this out, $36.00 for 25 targets with my own ammo & gun. $52.00 for 25 targets with their gun and ammo. Can't figure what it would cost to shoot all the events @ the Grand at those rates.

    I think that was their way of saying they didn't want you to shoot there.

    I used to see ads for cruise ships that threw clay targets off the rear of the ship. What do (did) they charge for those? Wouldn't be surprised if it was $5 / bird.

    There is a club around me that’s like that. Open to the public for $25 per 25 targets for trap or 5-stand, $125 for a 100 bird sporting clay. Members price... $5 per 25 or $1500 per year for UNLIMITED shooting. Membership requires two sponsoring members...good luck with that.

    Riff Raff? Me too! Do a "goof" on those snooty clubs, call 'em up and act like you are planning a big party and waste their time. Discuss menu, price, seating, desert, music, liquor schedule, wine list, all of the details. Ask if they have French truffles as a garnish and black cavier. Get real specific. Maybe even ask if there are some kids there to carry and then clean your guns after shooting.

    Then ask if you can bring your OWN claybird throwing machine and contractor's generator. Also ask if they sell diesel since some of the guests will be driving from a long distance. While you are at it, also ask if they have spitoons and jumper cables.

    Also ask for two kinds of meat for dinner: Possum and squirrel. That'll keep 'em going..but passive aggressive, so maybe they won't get it..

    We stayed there a few months ago and were able to buy some sort of activity pass for $50 bucks. It included horseback riding, golf, bowling AND the gun club. I shot 100 sporting clays and a round of 5 stand using my own gun and shells and asked the guy what I owed him and he said Nothing. I gave him a nice tip, and left there thinking what a deal! We also did the horseback and bowling for just the price of that pass. Check into the activity pass if it is still available next time you stay at the hotel.

    635 G said he went to the Homestead,not the Greenbrier. They are two separate resorts. The Greenbrier is in West Virginia. They advertise $45 per round for guests, but I don't know if non guests are allowed to shoot there.

    Oh, I am sorry, I misread for some reason i thought he said the Greenbrier. Either way, it is an upscale resort and expect exorbitant prices.

    The greenies got to the ships ... lead pollution in the ocean! We'd have to shoot from now till the second coming to even get close to the mess BP has made!

    Hey, Mark425,

    Where is that club you mentioned? At $1,500/year for unlimited targets that's a bargain. I'd try like hell to get into that club.

    It was $5 per bird on the cruise ship I was on. The interesting part was that you weren't allowed to touch the ammo. The cruise guy put the shell in, handed you the gun, stood VERY close and then took the gun after you broke the straight-away, close, bird. And you had to stand in line.

    Like everything else on that cruise, had a good time, wouldn't ever do it again.
