Central Maine (Near Bangor) Outdoor Shooting Locations?

New to shooting recently purchased a Ruger Single Six .22/.22Mag, and would like to start Plinking/Target Shooting. Looking for a gravel pit or any outdoor area to shoot. any suggestions/advice are also welcome.

I think there is a range in Augusta. And I think I went out and checked one out in Scarborough before. The one in Scarborough was nice but I think it's a private range.

we used to shoot in a pit just past the Old Town trading post, on the benoch rd. not sure if it is still allowed.
There's the Blue Hill rod & gun club
I think there's one in Hampden, they shoot trap, not sure about a pistol range.
Ask at Van Raymond's or Old Town Trading Post, they will have more info

unfortunatly from what i understand hampden gun club is shut down. the Scarborough one is expensive and hard to get into, but they have a really nice range. one of these warm days im going to head out towards the old town trading post and see whats up there. thanks

The range at the Capitol City Rifle and Pistol Club is excellent. A bit of a hike for you but they also have an indoor range which is good this time of year. You do have to be a member or a guest of a member.

Check with your local shops and see. Good chance they'd be the ones knowing the shooting spots up there.
Shoot safe, shoot often
