    Default long distance ranges near Long Island... aside from Calverton/Brookhaven

    Looking for a place to shoot rifles out to 300-500yds, reasonable drive from Nassau County LI, no more then 1.5hrs if possible. I wish we had more to choose from on LI but space is sparse and Calverton can be busy/crazy.....

    any and all advice welcome, also I am open to any clubs..

    Me too, I have a .308 that I'd love to sight in, but I'm not crazy about Crazy-ton, from what I've heard and read....

    There is a range on Gabreski Airport's property,
    Not sure of the name, it's in Westhampton.
    Heard it might even be 1000yd kd

    Let me know what you find, i'd be up for a ride.

    EDIT: Just found it, seems its a private range, if this is the one davygoat2 was referring to:

    That's the one, I'm under the assumption the Matches are open to Non-Club members
    That's probably the foot in the door.
    have Fun!! Let me know if you go.
    I'd like some spare time to watch a match one of these days.
    Maybe after a morning hunt out east.

    Well it's def not anywhere near 300 yards but there is a highly regulated range in Ridge. I went once and didn't like the basic training feel I got from it. I'm not knocking it but they run a tight ship.... Nothing like Calvy, I believe you still have to remain benched while shooting. It probably isn't as busy as Calv either. EDIT: lol Your Brookhaven is what I call Ridge... Sorry about that

    just back from calverton, while its a little "wild" it was fine, and I got in plenty of range time, the RO's were cool and I was left alone. I'm sure if you act like an idiot you will have issues...

    while waiting in line to enter, some fool exited his vehicle with an AR and was pointing it around, I almost tackled him. No reason to behave like that other then being born ignorant or wanting to show off, it's not smart or safe. In retrospect I should have beat some sense into him
