    Okay so I’m looking for some help. I have never seen a list of shooting ranges with RV spaces and hookups listed in some type of data base available online. It sure would be convenient to look up a range and see if they have RV spaces or not. Maybe they have a KOA nearby or other camping ground that would convenient. What I’d like to do is travel across the country staying at shooting ranges and of course shoot at each facility. This would be the shooting sports version of Good Sam.

    Already done? Not a good idea? What’s your opinion?

    If I get enough positive feedback I’d like to start a web site dedicated to doing this and I need your help.

    What say you? Send me an email if you like and we can discuss this idea or help.

    Pretty much any club that hosts their state shoot will probably have camp sites available with water and electric available and almost any club should let a shooting camper have some primitive space. Most all clubs are shooter friendly.

    Sounds like a great way to cross this great country. You might want to read osme of the old king of dimes series in trap and field.

    Check the ATA web site for the various clubs in the area you want to go. They list camping facilities if they have them and contact numbers to reserve.

    I did that rather often, after I retired. For about a year my wife and I traveled in a 38' RV. I stayed at a lot of nice gun clubs, mostly for nothing or very little. There use to be a guy that wrote a series travel esseys in T&F or Shooting Sports about doing just that. Mostly, I just looked up clubs on the ATA website and called ahead. I never had a problem. As a matter of fact, people bent over backwards to let me in or out early or late. Even on closed days.
