Based on .....? total number of votes??
Hmmm... let me guess one range in densely populated area and the other located much further north of the perimeter?

There are several ranges in more densely populated areas that ACM.....

They have always treated my wife and I extremly well and I enjoy talking to the folks that work there. I shoot there frequently, and though almost every range has it good and bad sides, overall I like ACM.

Congratulations guys...... and congratulations Bullseye for being second... please keep up the good work...

While there are much newer and fancier ranges out there, I've always liked the folks at ACM and their relaxed attitudes. I continue to shoot there, and now even especially more so. The newer ranges that are coming online are helping to alleviate some of the crowding I've seen at ACM.

This is interesting, because I got email saying that Wild West Traders was Creative Loafing's Best Atlanta Shooting Range.

I know they are on different sides of town but......
:screwy:
Found it ... Two different categories - two different winners
Best shooting range: American Classic Marksman
Reader Pick

Best shooting range: Wild West Traders
Staff Pick

I still wouldn't mind seeing their methodologies. For all the information the article gives, Wild West Traders (which I've been to and liked) could have been the only range the staff writer could get to on his roller-blades.

Ok, kind like the old college football AP and UPI polls.

I like ACM too. But since Trigger Time opened in Flowery Branch, I'm having a hard time driving to ACM. Nice folks indeed, but I'm finding the folks at Trigger Time just as pleasant.

I've been to both ranges, and I prefer ACM. They're both clean and nice, but WWT don't let you shoot certain calibers (like .357 Sig) or certain European ammos (Brown Bear, Silver Bear, etc)

I've seen most everything fired at ACM except maybe an RPG. :D

ACM has the least restrictive rules of any range I have used.
You can draw from a holster and fire as rapidly as you want.
Ventilation is sub par.

WWT has the most restrictive rules of any range I have used.
No rapid fire.
No drawing from a holster unless you are LEO because they are the only people professional enough.........
You can't even fire a .357 magnum.

WWT also takes their "no loaded firearm" rule very seriously. If they see you packing, they actually want to hand check you gun to make sure it is not loaded.

I think they are anal about their rules because they had a lot of incidents where idiots didn't follow the gun safety rules and nearly shot people.

Wasn't there a story of someone bringing in a loaded gun to their gun safety class, it went off, and nearly shot the instructor?

I think it is a silly rule, but if it's a rule, I'd expect it to be enforced. ACM is a cold range also.
