I live in Andover, MA and am looking to join a club. I have been to Andover Sportsman's club and liked it but I also am aware of there 5 bullet and no human looking targets restrictions. I don't mind that too much, but I was curious if there are other good clubs nearby people recommend.

Sorry for dupe, figured I should ask in a separate thread.

New Mass gun owner looking for place to shoot in Douglas MA

Hey guys can someone help me out, I was hoping to get more information on the Beagle club in Douglas. I live on the street it's off of and I can't find any information. I would really like to get involved in a Sportsman club ASAP. Thanks for your help

Dan

Taking a stab at getting an up to date Google Map document going here. DM me with clubs you would like added. Please provide as much info as possible. There is so much out of date info out there, that I'm hesitant to just start adding clubs without getting confirms from actual humans.

Starting with Massachusetts, more states to come.

could go through the 50 pages of gun range/club forum and google each thread title that contains a club name to see if they still exist...or just check the latest post date...i did this same type of thing with a motorcycle forum so riders could find other riders in their area to ride with...but i made the google map editable so everyone could add their own location...it worked out pretty well...after a while once they upgraded that forum it ended up having a map built into the new forum version which took the place of the map i created which got more attention being on the main forum page and a lot more people added their locations which worked out even better...surprised this forum can't do that...making the map editable to everyone may save you a little work/time...could see if a mod can unsticky this thread so you can sticky a new thread with the old map link and the new map link and little 'how to' so people know how to put in the locations...people can zoom in or search to see if their club/range is there and then add it if it's not...

i do a lot of this type of stuff at work with esri gis software...so if you need anything let me know...if you can figure out how to export your location points along with the club/range name, addresses and maybe a website link data attached to the point i could add county names or any other helpful data you want and export them back out to you...or create a pdf map for anyone that wants one with a nice aerial photo...or just a sortable data listing...but i don't think any of this is really necessary...would only be helpful if you wanted to get really crazy and add extra information to each point like what they have for facilities, range distances, etc.

either way keep up the good work...this will be a good tool for new people and anyone moving around the new england area

Need one for Local guns shops
Actually, one map, where you could turn on different layers for things like clubs, WMA's, shops, ...

Just looked again. It would be nice if the clubs were in alphabetical order. How do we access this to make changes?
