Many people (including myself) were FROM Ames but quit there due to "management issues". NOT recommended. We still get refugees from Ames joining Mansfield F&G almost monthly and what they report indicates that nothing (good) has changed there.
It probably worth an explanation- most clubs allow members to bring guests or kids, but the long ranges - 200+yds - are for members only and require separate qualification to be completed- due to the size of calibers that are getting fired on those ranges. Most usually there are private properties within 1000yds from the firing line and it’s a huge liability for the club.
