I am looking to purchase a shotgun for home defense. Where I grew up there were a number of free outdoor shooting ranges and cheap gun clubs.
Where I live now I can either pay $400/year (+ $600 intial fee) to join a gun club. This is too expensive for me. I believe gun clubs where I grew up my father pays less than $100 per year.
So my question is do indoor shooting ranges generally allow shotguns? I guess I can call and ask but you know how gun range employees are (I always feel that they try and belittle me for not knowing as much about guns as they do).
I wouldn't be able to purchase a shotgun and never use it. I want to practice with it just in case I ever have to use it and if I buy something it would bother me never to use it (especially after dishing out the money).
