    Default Where to shoot...

    Getting a new home defense gun and a pistol. I'm wondering where the best place around Anchorage is to break them in. Thanks.

    There are two public access ranges nearby. The state-owned range at Rabbit Creek and the privately owned range at Birchwood.

    The fees for each are coparable, but the distance, hours and range personnel are factors that seem to be decisive for most folks, particularly the latter.

    Idle curiosity...(In order of importance), what are your choices for bullets and the guns out of which they will be shot?

    If you want to load more than 10 rounds in your pistol, you should probably go to Birchwood.

    20ga buckshot (still researching)
    9mm hollowpoints (not sure yet of brand still researching)

    I'm getting a Remington 29 ga tactical 7 shot with Knoxx stock and an XD9 subcompact.
