Ranges & Prebans
« on: August 11, 2017, 02:48:28 PM »

Are there ranges you guys use that give people a hard time with prebans or preban AR pistols?  If so, what ranges? 

What ranges do you know don't care?

no problems at greysons, highrock or the range in bridgeport. No problem with mags or mag capacities either. Had CT DPS show up on private land- they were not concerned either.

I've never heard of a problem at any range.  What would make you concerned about this?

I don't have that problem. I shoot only at one of the two clubs I am a member of or on private land.

I find it hard to believe that anyone who shoots more than three or four times a year is not a member of a club or at least on a waiting list. State and private ranges are so restrictive and leave you to the mercy of some range officer who only thinks they know it all.

Out of curiosity what makes you think there is a problem taking a preban to ANY range, public or private?

We are not the cops. I don't care what you shoot at my range.

Good to hear and makes sense.  I  thought I remembered seeing a post about a range officer giving someone a hard time about a preban.

Also ... consider it me being a noob.  Guess the jerks that are in the state and have a hard time with guns in general aren't frequenting ranges anyway.

I would agree if it was not for the fact that there are people in Lower Fairfield County were there simply are not any (that offer membership) within a ~ 2hr driving range. Without traffic that is.

I  thought I remembered seeing a post about a range officer giving someone a hard time about a preban.
Back when CT (and then the Feds) enacted the initial AWB there was a lot of confusion its possible some range officers back then made a big deal over it. I got hassled a few times (by both an RO and a police officer) at Wooster Mtn. back in the 90's, partly due to my age at the time. They didn't understand what the law actually said was a preban. Took to carrying a copy of the laws to clarify the confusion. It took a year or two after the passage of the initial CT ban before it stopped being an issue because everyone became educated.
