  • Shooting Ranges

    Does anyone know a range to shoot at in or around the NW burbs? My department's range is down for a month (so they say). I have gone to Maxon in Des Plaines, but they charge $16. Is there any other place that can beat that?

    It's more Northeast, but The Outdoorsman in Winthrop Harbor IL.

    (847) 746-1331
    221 Sheridan Rd
    Winthrop Harbor, IL 60096

    Show / let them know you're LE and they're even more friendly than normal. I don't remember range costs, but it's not as expensive as $16.00. Hours are something like 9a-7p or so.

          This place is a dump, plane and simply! Half there stuff works, or it breaks while you're using it. They can care less about putting any money back into their place. No air cleaners, no air conditioning in the summer, and no heat in the winter. Customer service is nonexistent.

          I would highly recommend Shooters in Racine or the outdoor range in Bristol. The range in Bristol just raised the rates, but if your department rents the whole range it's free.

          There is also Bass Pro in Gurnee.

                    Don't go here unless you want to have to use lead free ammo and deal with rude employees. Also their range is horribly unkempt and half the guns they have for rent are defective. Ammo is expensive.

                        It would be nice if cook county forest preserve district turned a section of a forest for an outdoor range.
