    Take the North Birchwood exit off the Glen, follow the signs toward the airport, drive around the back side of the airport. Can't miss it.

    The other 299,300,000 people can have it.

    Noone has a more intimate understanding of, or deeper appreciation for freedom, than a soldier who has fought for it in a country where it does not exist.

    Does Birchwood have annual memberships?
    I can do the impossible right away. Be patient, miracles take me a bit longer.

    EPM Membership
    (Exclusive Park Member)

    Individual EPM Membership $175.00

    (Includes spouse and children under 17 years of age living with parents.)

    EPM's have access to the park 7 days a week from 7am-10pm

    However, would bet the EPM fee increases since the daily range fee has as well.

    Thanks guys.
    I checked the website link:
    http://www.brspclub.com/index.html
    They have all the info there. As you say though, the membership fees may increase as well. I'll watch the site for updates.
    Prices don't seem too bad if you shoot alot. I guess, having never been there that it might be worth a 1 day pass first to check it out though and see if it's really worth a membership. Back in Minn I tried a few ranges that were pretty poorly run and never went back. Any possitive reports about this range?
    Thanks, Grizz

    Great place to shoot. But if the weather is good avoid going there on Sat and Sun.
    7th largest outdoor range in the USA according to the range master.

    Unless they have been removed, Rabbit Creek Rifle range has 300,400,500 and 600 yard iron silouette targets to shoot with nothing larger than .30-06' caliber. That was many years since I have been and done that though. Also I find it more enjoyable to shoot at Birchwood.

    I got a membership there on my last R&R from the sandbox. All the staff was really nice and easy to deal with. I got the EPM membership ($125 for active mil btw) which gets you a little gate pass so you can come and go 7am-10pm 365 days a year. There are no daily fees once you have EPM, so shoot till your heart is content. All they ask is that you check in with the staff before you go shoot so they can glance at your membership card.

    They have a bunch of skeet and trap ranges separate from the 25-300 yard ranges. Each range is broken apart by distance, and has benches and stools to shoot from. You'll need to bring your own target frame, or buy one there for $5, so no biggie. The ranges are just an open area surrounded by berms so you can set your targets up however you want which is nice. I'll be spending a lot of time there on my next trip home. Hope that helps.
