There are usually many members there that will tell you something if they see something wrong.

    When you become a member, you will either sign up at the range or sign up online. You will have to attend a public hours day at the range to sign a new waiver as a member and take a photo for your range ID. It's so they can track members and require you to show membership if you're out there on non-public days. You will be given the gate code and given all of the range rules and whatnot after you go through all of that.

    I've yet to see anyone be unsafe out there. They are good at keeping the riff raff out and I'm sure the location is enough deterrent for the masses.

    It's very likely that when you become a member and go out on a members only day, you will be the only person there or there will be knowledgeable persons in other bays. A lot of USPSA and 3 Gun shooters are out there often. Just some food for thought, if you're out at a private range in the middle of nowhere, it's best to keep a first aid kit and trauma kit with you. I've already cut my finger open grabbing a wooden target stand that had a piece of jacket stuck in it.
    Much appreciated.
    I always have medical supplies with me as a matter of course but the mention of such is good advice.

    Be well.

    Okay, makes sense.

    With honey island range closed for high water mcta can get busy quick on the weekends.
    Be there for 10 am or be prepared to wait for a shooting lane.
    Do or do not

    So, you were 100% correct about this, especially with the nice weather today. It was busy at MCTA for sure, but it looked like a lot of that might have been events of some kind going on? Or maybe some kind of classes/training. Either way, I got some shooting done, which is all I'm after. I might start trying to get there earlier though, it was jumping at 11am. Thanks for the heads up!

    I haven't been in a few weeks, but since my work travel is shut down was thinking of heading there for a weekday visit as a member. Are you talking about more non-members being there on the weekend, or is there something up during the week as well? Not trying to be difficult, just want to know before I decide if I should make the drive. Thanks!

    MCTA is only open to non-members on the weekend.

    Sorry, yes, I asked my question badly. I'm a member, I just haven't had a chance to go during the week since I joined due to my travel schedule. As you can imagine, my travel is... non existent right now. So I was trying to figure out if there was something that had changed at MCTA during the week, or if it was just "Hey, there's a lot of new shooters there on the weekend and that's why the person above called it a beginner range." I was just making sure that they haven't changed policies or anything. Thanks!

    Week days are the best days to go!
