    Default Indoor Range

    I know that it has probably been brought up a lot before, but I am only recently actively on the forums again. Am moving back to AK soon, but this time in the Fairbanks region. Are there any relatively uncrowded indoor ranges? Somewhere people just like to hang out, shoot, and just B.S. with other folks? Based on my previous Alaska experience, this is about 90 % of the state.

    Thanks, Donk

    Never been there myself but Fairbanks has an indoor firing range that is operated by the state Dept of Fish & Game, Hunter Education division. Check out the State of Alaska web site for more info.
