Does anyone know of some outdoor rifle ranges in the Athens area?

Thanks in advance.

Outside Lexington

There is a range, I'm not sure of the name, about a mile east of Lexington on Hwy 78. It may be called Night Vision, at least that is on the sign. The # on the sign is 706-743-3053. Hope this helps you out...

Sort of a long way off, but in November (3-4) there will be an Appleseed Shoot just outside of Toccoa. The bulk of the shooting is done at 25m. This is an ideal envronment to shoot with, then compare your score on the AQT (Army Qualification Test) with the guy next to you. Not exactly competition, but close enough.

This event teaches you to shoot from the 3 "field positions" - standing/offhand, sitting (or kneeling), and prone. No bench-potatoes at Appleseeds (no bipods use, either)! I've shot at 3 Appleseeds and learned something new at each one.

pm me if you need more details

There is one on highway 78 going towards Bogart (away from Athens) on the left just past the gun store and across the street from Best Buy. Its called The Firing Lane, here's the website.

Come try out the Georgia Mountain Shooting Assoc. in Toccoa. We are hosting an Appleseed Shoot on 3-4 Nov., so you can shoot all weekend for $70. Shooting on the 300yd range, mmm, tasty!
More info at

Alternately, try; they have a 700yd range there BUT you have to call ahead to make a reservation.

Charles Elliot wildlife refuge/center has a decent rage. It's pretty short, however. If you're looking for anything over 100 yards, you'll have to find another place.

Their handgun range is pretty nice, though!

I don't remember there being a RO there, either...
