View Full Version : Where to shoot near Allentown, Pa.

September 15, 2001, 12:05 PM
Are there any ranges, indoor or outdoor, that are open to the public near Allentown, Pa? If there aren't any public ranges, are there any private clubs where a membership may be purchased? I have a family member that is relocating there and would like to know. Thank you for your help.
South side of Allentown, Emmaus to be specific.

I know of one due east of Fleetwood, cant' remember the name nor the road it's on [somewhere north of Pricetown Rd]. I'll call my dad and ask him [see if he knows the name and its locale].

Depends where you are in Allentown, it should be with a half-hour drive from you.

If I am able, I'll try to find a web-site I visited earlier this year of all of the ranges in PA as I cannot place my finger on that URL either.

I am relatively sure you should be able to find some there around Catasaqua, Northhampton, or the Cementon area's too.

1. Public Ranges - there is a Game Commission range near Allentown. Call the PA Game Commission and they can direct you there. Be aware that PA GC rules are rather strict (e.g., no more than 3 rounds in your gun at once).

2. Private Clubs -

a. Ontelaunee Rod & Gun (New Tripoli, about 30 minutes from Allentown) - no website that I know of. Take 309N to 143, turn left on 143 and follow until you see Gun Club Road on your right, along with a big sign for the club.
b. Easton Fish & Game (Easton, about 30 mins) - see http://www.eastontacticalops.com
c. Blue Ridge Cherry Valley (Sciota, about 45 mins) - see http://www.geocities.com/kevinm34_2000/brcv-index.html

All time estimates are from the intersection of 476 and 22 (the Allentown exit of the Northeast Extension).

I hear that shooting at the south side public housing is popular this year.:p

Or, there is an indoor range in Whitehall called 'The Firing Line' north about 7 miles on Rte 145/MacArthur Rd.
