Default Quintette shooting range

Just wanted everyone to know I stopped by there today because I was told they would be open Wed. thru Sunday. They have the equipment in there now trying to get it ready for the opening so they are NOT going to be open Wed. Thursday or Friday but if they get enough done they might be open Saturday and Sunday. I was planning on going tomorrow and had to drive by there today so I thought I would stop by and check for myself. Just trying to save someone a trip.

Dont bother, Take the extra 15 minutes and drive to wilcox. Much better facility, you can shoot 50 cal black powder there, and you can sight-in a slug gun on the rifle range.

You must be located in West Pensacola.

I'm over in Santa Rosa County. To be honest, if quintette is so-so and open, I will still frequent there more often than styx. I have a good 45 mins in Styx from my doorstep to theirs... wouldn't mind going if gas were cheaper.

I am hopeful that with new management the Quintette range will be much better than it used to be. I really like going over to the Styx range but if the new management at Quintette is good, and the range is safe, I will have no problems shooting out there. I do hope that some of the rules out there change and it would be nice to have a level headed range officer actually monitoring what is going on ..... I am hopeful, but only time will tell.

I've heard many reports of people not abiding by range commands...

Quintette needs a RO.

I just stop by there and the manager was on the range working but I talk to a friend of his and he said their plans were to open saturday and sunday and it would be FREE. Now this did not come straight out of the horse mouth.

Well I might just pass through on Saturday to see what's going on. I passed by today and they had the new building out and some fresh dirt piled high. I went to Styx on Wed and there was hardly anyone there. Controlled fire was tolerated and everyone was fine. Great time. On a side note, why does everyone shoot their pistol targets so close. When I walked my target to the back of the berm people were looking funny.
