Has anyone checked this out yet? The youtube video looks interesting. Some kind of cinematic/virtual shooting range with live ammo.

I actually phoned them a week ago because I needed to zero some rifles, and Elm Fork was closed that day. I never did get over there, but a friend of mine has shot there and said that it is a pretty nice facility. Not cheap though.

Kinda what I was thinking. I have a few rifles and pistols that need some range time and while this place looks nice, I can't bring myself to drop this much cash just on the range.

This range looks very upscale and will appeal to the wealthy.

Hey, some people drive upscale vehicles, own very costly houses, and so it goes...

I don't begrudge them. Who want to rub elbows with the great unwashed?

Alright, to a large degree I kid, but not completely.

Some ranges are to be avoided as in sideways handgun aiming thugs who show up to shoot and others whose knowledge of gun safety is nil, of course that Daddy Warbucks might also be a dimwit with a gun...but it's bit less likely if he earned his wealth, in all probability he's likely fairly well versed in safe gun handling, probably...

While not cheap, it's a great time. They do have several different options to pick from and I don't recall the price of just using their 100 yard tunnel but it is much cheaper. The main attraction of the cinema screen is awesome though.
