Top Shooting Ranges in St. Louis, Missouri
Regardless of whether you have a weapon for hunting or self defense, you should be familiar with its use. Shooting ranges offer a safe place to practice as well as courses in firearm safety.....
I moved from St. Louis out to the country, (way out), when I was in my early twenties and stayed there for about fifteen years. It seemed as if everyone in the country had guns, so I bought myself a 12-gauge shotgun, though I rarely used it. I've always had mixed feeling about the gun control issue. Missouri just passed the law allowing you to carry a concealed weapon not too long ago amid great debate, but you don't hear much about it anymore. I haven't heard this mentioned before, but I think that weapons should be allowed in rural areas, but banned in cities of say 50,000 or 100,000 or more. I know that it would be hard to enforce, but what isn't? Rural folks just seem to handle firearms better, and besides there's not much to shoot at in the city anyway besides people. Not to say that there wasn't a couple times when I lived out there that made me question it. Like the time a neighbor showed up at my door on Superbowl Sunday with a loaded double barreled shotgun and a handful of double magnum loads. He wanted me to go outside and fire off a few rounds in celebration of the game. I did, and afterwards had a football-sized bruise on my shoulder and a cut on my face from the recoil. Or the time I had to scurry off my roof when I was cleaning out my chimney because dove season had started and stray shot was raining down on me like metal confetti.
Since it's legal to carry a gun but not fire it in some municipalities, what do you do for practice? Here are a few of the best shooting ranges in the St. Louis area:
We all know here in the Lou that Auggie Busch was a great fan of the outdoors. The August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area Shooting Range and Outdoor Education Center is located on Highway D near St. Charles, Missouri and offers a wide range of activities for the shooting enthusiast. The shooting range is on a first-come, first-served basis for individuals, but group use must be scheduled a month in advance. The fee is $3 for a shooting both with a maximum time of one hour if there is a waiting line. They also have a trap/skeet field for $3 per round of 25 targets and a turkey shotgun range. Archery ranges are free, but the Broadhead Archery Pit Range with its special targets is $3 an hour per person. The range is open Friday-Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from October 1st through April 30th.
The Top Gun Shooting Sports Range is one of the few state-of-the-art shooting ranges in the St. Louis/Jefferson County area. They welcome families and new shooters as well as the more experienced ones. They have a good focus on safety with a powerful ventilation system to remove smoke and odor and ensure a clean and healthy environment. Non-shooters can watch what's going on from behind bullet-proof glass. The range offers modern shooting equipment, which is maintained on a daily basis by an experienced staff. The rates run about $15 an hour. You can get more information by visiting their website: www.topgunss.com
Bull's Eye Shooting Range, 5100 Manchester, St. Louis, Mo. is the only shooting range in the city proper. There you can rent pistols, rifles, and one brand new full-auto Uzi until 9 p.m. at night, Tuesday through Friday. They are also open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. They have the only full-scale full-service gun shop in the city. You meet the full range of customers here, from professional marksmen to housewives to father and son teams. By the way; don't even think about buying the Uzi. Federal law makes it a "rental item only."
