    Any members of Bridgeview Gun Club in Port Allen?

    Anybody on here a member of Bridgeview Gun Club in Port Allen?
    I stopped in to check it out today.
    It seems to be marketed for rich older guys to have beers and shoot clays.
    $300 a year membership fee. Plus a $ 5 to $10 per day range fee. So if you stop in one day a week (which was my plan ) it will increase the cost $500 -$700 a year.
    They have a whopping 5 lanes for pistol and rifle, 7-25. Some rickety tables, and no electricity or fans.
    Definitely going pass on this "opportunity" as the bartender/whatever he was called it.

    Yep, there is even a couple of spaces to hook up your 1/2 million $ motor home

    I'm not a member but I go to Thursday fun shoot probably every other week on average. It's a good place to go shoot some clays. It cost $16 for 25 pairs of sporting clays.

    I definitely think its more geared towards the clay shooters than pistol/rifle shooters. Eddie is a good guy, that is probably the bartender that you were talking about.

    I joined Palo Alto for shooting pistols and rifles and go to Bridgeview when I want to bust some clays and just pay the non-member fee.

    Is that $16 for 50 targets? 25 pairs ? That's what I want to do and forget about a membership. The rifle and pistol range was always a joke out there. It's set up mainly for skeet, trap, and sporting clays.

    sporting clays may be different down here but up north its clays launched at various heights and angles, even some rolling. ive never done one that wasnt a walk thru course. i didnt see anything like that out there.

    yes, but that is only on Thursday afternoons. We have a couple guys that go on Thursdays and its a good way to spend a Thursday afternoon. bust some clays then drink a few beers.

    It is a sporting clay course. It's not like some of the high end courses but its a fun little course. On Thursdays they have 8 stations setup with each station being a completely different pair, and yes they will come from all different angles and heights with a few rabbits mixed in sometimes as well.

    thats cool, it is set stations i take it?
    i may have to try it someday. like i said, ive only done walk thru courses. most positions are not even marked, you just walk the trail.

    No the stations can change from week to week. Sometimes the course will completely change from week to week. Then sometimes just the throwers will be moved or changed up. Then every once in a while the stations wont change much. It depends how much time Eddie has during the week or that Thursday to move them.
