I was watching Aerial America's episode on Roadside Attractions on the Smithsonian Channel this afternoon and they were featuring the Gettysburg Battlefield. My family stopped by there in the middle of a vacation when I was probably 14 or 15. I regret that I didn't appreciate our visit to such an historic place at the time. So I was looking around Gettysburg on Google Maps and zoomed in on the Eisenhower National Historic Site.

Then I noticed the clear outline of a skeet field, and right next to is was a trap field, set up only for 16 yards. I looked on the National Park Service's website for the Eisenhower NHS and could only find information about the shooting fields listed under the Self-Guided Tours section. It only mentions "A short walk from the Reception Center is Eisenhower's skeet range. A wayside exhibit details Ike's shooting prowess and explains the rules of trap and skeet."

Since the Eisenhower NHS website says they're closed indefinitely, I doubt it would be worth trying to contact them to see if it's even possible to shoot a round at the range. But it got me thinking: What are some of the more interesting or historic locations that shooting ranges can be found? What neat places have you shot at?

From the aerial view there are no targets on the ground, but I know a bunch of people who live in the area - I can make some phone calls...
