      There's a place in Aurora near Fox Valley Mall - JR Shooting Sports. $19 all you can shoot. It's decent, and they have a pretty well stocked store. Their website is here:

        yeah, i would also recommend JR shooting sports, good clean place with guns for sale and rent, plenty of targets, ammo, and firing booths. Plus a very knowlegeable staff.

          I like to go to Midwest at odgen and 1st avenue in Lyons when i don't feel like driving. They have a nice range and most guns they sell you can rent before buying. Their website is www.midwestguns.com For heavy duty shooting I go to rangemasters in Indiana. My buddy has an AR 15 that the range allows. You can also rent a full auto MP5 if you want. It is about 40 minutes from the stateline. Their website is www.rangemasteroutfitters.com

            Screw the indoor range, get outdoors. The best Range EVER, or series of ranges I should say is Buffalo Rock in Ottawa. I am by I-55 and I-355 and it takes me less than an hour to get out there. In "The Pit" anything goes, any rifle or handgun, you can 'bump fire', etc. There is a rifle range, pistol range, clay pigeon throwers, etc. Their website is below. For more info, you can go to AR15.com, go to the Illinois Hometown Forum and read about all the stories. They are very friendly people that operate the place. $20 for an all day event. Once you shoot outdoors, you will see how indoors is NO FUN anymore!

                Buffalo Range is a great range. I still have to go out there this year.

                Gat Guns has a nice range too. Really nice overall store, period. It's where I bought my Springfield XD9. Knowledgeable people.

                  Gun World is also in bensenville its a good place for the distance but expensive on ammo. I recommend walking into a wal-mart be4 going cuz they usually have great prices on ammo. Cheap targets but good ones. They have friendly people there and guns to rent and buy.

                    Jr Shooting sports is located on E new york st. just west of FVM in naperville. If you get to Eola road you gone too far. I 've shot there but i prefer MegaSports in plainfield for handguns. Last I heard you pay hourly at Jrs but onetime cost at Mega is for all day if you choose. My next venture is Buffalorock. Good luck.
