    Default Shooting ranges in Fbks

    Where are and how are the ranges in Fbks area? I know there is one on S. Cushman. Any others? Are they crowded often? Are they governed, like by a range master?
    Thanks for any info.

    The one on S. Cushman has no Range Master. It's a 300yd range and usually it isn't that crowded. Sometimes there is a lot of junk out there because people like to shoot at old tv's, microwaves and other trash without cleaning it up. Two sides to the range, one for rifle and one for pistol. There is also one on Chena Hot Springs Road (don't remember the mile marker). I wouldn't really call it a range though as there isn't anything set up there like benches or anything. I've shot at that one a couple times and I've been the only one there. Same problems on that range as far as trash goes.

    Fairbanks, like Juneau and unlike Anchorage, has an ADF&G indoor shooting range. It's here; http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/index.cfm...banksrange.map Have fun.
    I may be slow, but I get where I'm going!
