Real estate

For the marksman in search of a home, proximity to a shooting range is nice, but a home with a shooting range is even better. While backyard shooting ranges and indoor pistol ranges are fairly uncommon, they do pop up in real estate listings on occasion, especially in the great state of Texas. Here are four examples…

Basement Shooting Range (Newtown Square, PA—$16,950,000)

 

Expensive to build, a shooting range in a home has unique requirements like specialized building permits, lead-free ammunition, and plenty of safety features. However, it is convenient for those that want to fire off a few rounds during commercials.

Rifle Range With Bullet Stops And Target Holders (Rutledge, GA—$925,000)

 

Unless there are local regulations forbidding it, all that’s required to build your own rifle range is plenty of land, a rest, and targets. Just be sure there’s nothing in danger of being hit beyond the target and build a proper backstop.

Skeet Shooting Range (Mitchells, VA—$149,900)

 

Provided you have enough land, tolerant neighbors, and the proper zoning regulations, you can build your own skeet shooting range without much effort.

Indoor & Archery Range (Chadwick, IL—$275,000)

Far cheaper to create and simpler to maintain than ranges for firearms, an archery range provides an ideal place for aspiring Robin Hood’s to practice. For those interested in starting a commercial archery range, this one is for sale and comes with $40,000 in retail inventory and displays.
