    For those who don't know Cedar Ridge is the polar opposite, however their rules are stupid. The Moonpie and I went out there one time and got screamed out because we were in front of the painted shooting areas because we were trying to load muzzle loaders. They had a roof over the shooting area that was too low and precluded you to push a ball down the barrel. If I remember correctly, they hollered at us several times, even though we tried to explain what we were doing. Besides that, they give you a test. You'd better say your rounds are going into the berm or be prepared to be kicked off - not unreasonable, but the way they did it was, um, contentious at the least.

    It's a great range though - once you get over that. You get private bays for cheap, just got to deal with the BS.
    Agree. It's been over 10 years since I was at Cedar Ridge and I won't be back. Ever.

    Neighbors at a nearby subdivision told ABC13 they have had stray bullets hit their homes and have complained to the gun range owner before. The owner told ABC13 that the concerns were "not a big deal" and was not looking to make any changes.

    That's going to end well I'm sure.

    I used to live right by thunder range, I used to shoot there a lot as well. I even did my original LTC there years ago.
    The range was and is a cluster ****, and the owner is a greedy bastard who at the time wouldn’t even put prices on his ammo, he would just shoot a number out at you to see if you would bite. He also charged an arm and a leg to shoot at the furthest distance, like it was some sort of special privilege. I don’t regret going some place else.

    You did the right thing and tell other people to avoid his crooked self.
