Place to take son shooting?

Reply
 
Does anyone know of an outdoor private place in the Baton Rouge surrounding area, that I could take my son shooting? Taking my son to a range, where he is surrounded by people with loaded guns that we don't know what their gun safety habits are, doesn't sound like a good idea. I'll put myself in that position, but not him.

Thanks!

My camp is 40 minutes from Cabelas in Napoleonville. I shoot pretty much every week and y'all can come by if you don't find another place. Off hand I can't think of anywhere else that meets your needs. Maybe a WMA in the area?

...looks like a 'couple' of brains got together...we never shot glass always clays,paper, cans or small wood blocks...remember 12 1/2 yrds w/ a 22 LR in a 1 in circle puts it right on at 50 yrds...have fun...cheers

P/S... Ricky if it wasn't so far would take 'ya on at a 'A Dollar a Shot '...( 'ya gott't watch 'dem old farts who spits on 'da front sight )...cheer /cheers

Not a big fan of the good olds days but boy it was so much fun when my 3 sons and I could play all day on the Ramaha area. 22 ammo was a cent and you could get all you wanted, Sure the Ramaha area is now off limits but that was a great place to shot plenty of turtles etc.

One range is:

Located on 50 acres in Ascension Parish on the West side of the Mississippi River and just Northwest of Donaldsonville, LA, Palo Alto Rifle and Pistol Club is the premier private shooting club in the area
