Redbrush Vs. Daniel Boone Gun Club
Hi all I have moved and left my happy home with multiply ranges (pistol and a 400yd Rifle) behind. I live in Evansville IN. I am looking at getting a membership to redbrush or Daniel boone Gun club. But do not know which one to go with. So please sound off and tell me you opinion on both or just the one you like and why.
Thanks for helping

Besides Red Brush is a great place!
Been a member there goin on 4 years, been shooting there for almost 10.
Good group of guys, and they allow Full-auto, not for everybody, but for some of us it's the thing!

Both are excellent ranges and are different enough to make it an easy choice as I think they cater to different folks. I belong to Redbrush and shoot often at Daniel Boone with a friend. My humble pros and cons are as follows:
Daniel Boone: Pros - closer to Evansville than Redbrush by about 15 minutes or so, well maintained, small clay thrower on site for general use, good helpful folk and a social atmosphere, frequent pistol and rifle target matches. Cons - Single large bay means lots of cease fires for people to go down range, 200 yard max range, limited bench space for rifles, firing lines at 25yds and 50yds tough to work around for closer pistol shooting, porta-potties.
Redbrush: Pros - large rifle range out to 375 yds with 500 yds opened several times a year, 4-5 seperate pistol bays, up to 100 yards, means often you will have a bay to yourself, movable target stands, bathrooms, anything goes gun wise except no .50 bmg, monthly cowboy, sub-gun, steel, ipsc shoots and weekly steel and bowling pins in april-october, Cons - 25-30 minutes from the east side of Evansville.

Is the Evansville Gun Club still open?
It was up in southern Gibson County, mostly shotgun and skeet I think.
The Pike county Bird Hunters Club has some shotgun stuff once in awhile from what I have heard also.

they used to have one (a few years ago at least) but harold (the owner) said it was leased to the warrick county sheriff's dept and couldnt be used, and before that it was only open to club members, but all the shotgun ranges are open to the public (or at least they used to be)
