Well, I went to a local public outdoor range a few days ago to fire my Mosin Nagant. It's pretty.......not that nice. Kinda dilapidated. The distances are set where you put your targets, so if you want to adjust that it's not that great of an idea. Other than that, they aren't too bad. The only problem is you're not immune from the weather. And I live in western PA out by Pittsburgh. Although I doubt that they'd be very different out there.
