Great place to fire your gun and zero in. Good choice of different length ranges. 25' to 300'. Had a great time.

RSO's need to be more people friendly...
jun. de 2019 • Amigos
My son and I came out on a Saturday morning with a group of Marine veterans for a sighting in session. RSO on the 100 yard range treated our group like we were a bunch of children ! As Marines, we know about firearm safety, and know how to obey rules. Problem was that the rules were not clear, and when a "rule" wasn't adhered to, we were berated publicly, instead of being pulled aside and had the rule explained. I'll think real hard before I go here again.

Couple shooting date

We just did the intro session to handguns with mike - it was fantastic, Mike was patient, interesting and engaging. He showed us the ropes and gave us some great tips. The range had a great atmosphere with everyone being very friendly. Definitely recommend it if you fancy an exciting couple of hours!

Terrible Attitudes!
jul. de 2018 • Solitario
I won't be going back to this place! The RO's treat people like they're idiots! As a former RO myself, I would NEVER treat or talk to people the way they do! I'm 58 years of age, and have been a shooter/hunter for the better part of those 58 years. I'm not claiming to be a "pro", but I've done my share of competitive shooting so I kind of know what I'm doing when it comes to handling firearms. It's too bad, because this is a nice facility, but these "people" give the shooting sports a bad image! I couldn't imagine taking a new shooter to this place only to have them belittled!

Great Range

One of the great things about McMiller is all the different ranges. From rifle, pistol and sporting Clays they have it all. I also like the 300 yard range, great to reach out and feel confident in a shot.

The sporties range is very enjoyable and it provides many different setting, easy walking and there pay as you go is nice too. Using a card at each station you simply get charge for the clays you use. Take several at a station that is giving you grief and master the shot.

They also have a nice clubhouse with ammo, guns and other shooting supplies. You can rent guns as well.

A bit of a drive for me so I don't get out there that much which is unfortunate of I would be there every day.

Very Good Experience
ene. de 2017 • Amigos
McMiller is not hard to find, it is about 20 miles north of Lake Geneva and there are very clear signs starting about 2 to 3 miles away. There are multiple ranges – all of them outdoor and almost all of them covered with a roof. There is a 100 Yd, 50 Yd and 25 Yd. I believe that there is a static trap/skeet range as well (we did not use) and I think there might be a trap/skeet action trail back in the woods as well.

There is plenty of parking, and a small office/lodge type building. The lodge is warm, with a wood burning fire, flush restrooms, a small and rather basic concession stand, a few large tables, and a small retail section. The retail section sells common ammunition… .22, 9, .308, .30-06, shotgun rounds, 7.62x39 etc…it isn’t a huge selection, but as long as you aren’t shooting something weird like 5.78 Sumatran, you should be able to find your round. They sell gloves, a few basic cleaning items, muffs etc…there is a gun smith on the premises which is nice to know. They also rent some guns, but the selection is not exactly enormous. They also have a few guns for sale.

The prices are very reasonable – for $20 bucks, we could shoot all day on any of the rifle/pistol ranges. There are no target carriers here…on cease fire, you simply walk to the frame and use the provided stable gun to put on a new target. The range officers are friendly and attentive. If you break their rules (say, emptying a clip rapid fire)…, you will get a very stern verbal warning (probably) and told a second occurance will get you thrown out (and I believed them when they said that to the guy next to me).

If you are hauling a lot of gear, a range cart is a nice idea. Dress for the weather…even though it is covered, the wind can still get you. There isn’t much around that I saw as far as food (apart from a basic concession stand selling brats and chili and little else), but you could probably bring your own food I would think…we hit a place afterwards in Lake Geneva and that was fine.

All in all, it is a nice facility and the price of the all day pass can’t be beat.

Cheap prices, staff is friendly and always ready to give a hand. I've never had a problem going here, all you have to do is understand and abide by the rules and you'll be fine. This is easily the safest range around.

STAFF IS VERY RUDE!
nov. de 2016 • Amigos
I've been to probably all the public ranges in the Southern Wisconsin/ Northern Illinois area and this one is by far the worst. After only my second visit in two years I will not go there again. I thought the first time might have been a bad day but the second time around was even worse.
My shooting buddy and I are both around 40 years old and have been around firearms our whole lives. Gun safety was instilled in us at a very young age. So being well versed in the do's and don'ts, we got by ok there. But everyone, including us, got looked down upon the entire time we were there. We witnessed the staff belittle multiple patrons for the slightest infractions. One guy just arriving, during a cease fire, set his cased rifle on his empty bench and before he could turn and walk away you here "get away from the bench". And the words "I hope we're not going to have any more problems" was overheard more than once. All the replies to the staff members were all "yes sir" and "no sir", no one at any time ever returned the rudeness. One poor guy on the 100 yard range got told that if he couldn't shoot any better than that he needed to go to the 25 yard range, as if he was getting put in time out. The guy ended up leaving. During one cease fire all the weapons were secure and everyone was away from the benches, two guys started walking toward their targets and the staff member yells “the range is not clear”. The two guys walked the five steps back to where they were, waited about two seconds, and to no surprise “the range is now clear”. Those are just some of the things I can remember off the top of my head.
I understand that a gun range can be a dangerous place and the staff is there to keep everyone safe, but there was never a reason during our visit to be treating people as if they were complete idiots. The staff doesn’t have to be all smiles and cater to your every need, but scolding grown men like they’re little kids is unacceptable. In this day and age, gun ranges and gun owners tend to get a bad rap, and places like this is only going to fuel the fire. Someone at this facility needs to get a handle on things. I can’t imagine how bad of an experience it would be for someone new to the sport that just wants to learn and to get better at shooting. They would probably leave there never wanting to shot again.
