The following is a list gun ranges in Atlanta Georgia or the surrounding area. With the sprawl of housing in America these days it is often hard to find a legal and safe place for target shooting. Gun ranges are the best place for target shooting in my opinion. You usually are supervised by professionals and you can meet like minded people who share your hobby of shooting. Each Atlanta gun range will have a Web link listed in the sources at the end of this article. If you are a prospective new gun owner check this article out on how to pick your first gun.
