Shark- welcome to the forum and to gun ownership.
You don't mention where you are, but I would recommend looking into shooting on public lands if there are any in the area. I haven't shot indoors in a very long time- there is only one small place to do so locally, and it's not a decent outfit so I don't give them my business.
I like being outside and doing my own thing. Weather can be a factor, but you work around that. You might try asking people at local gun stores if they know of places to shoot outdoors. BLM land, national forests, that type of thing. All those fees can be saved and put toward ammo...
