    Hi all,

    New Georgia resident and GWCL holder. I have been browsing this forum and this is a great community you have here! Glad to be in Georgia!

    On a side note, does anyone know of any good outdoor ranges or clubs in the west cobb area? Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum, Greg! You will find lots of good folks on here...and if you haven't heard of Georgia Packing .org, then I would ask that you take a look. They have done A LOT to further our rights here in Georgia. Here is a link: https://www.georgiapacking.org/

    I lived in Powder Town for a few years a while back. If you haven't checked out Johnny's BBQ you should. Good food and they sell guns! ;) As for a good place to shoot over there, I am not sure anymore..someone will chime in soon enough though.

    Welcome to the forum. Please browse around and participate. I am not aware of any outdoor ranges in that area, but perhaps folks more local to you will chime in.

    Hi and welcome!

    There are several gun ranges in the Marietta area but the closest one to you might be Governor's Gun Club on Highway 278 between Hiram and Powder Springs.

    Here is their website:

    Nearest outdoor range I am sure of that ISN'T a WMA (Wildlife Management Area) at a state park, etc., is in Adairsville:

    Adairsville Sporting Range 123 Holloway Rd NW, Adairsville GA 30103 (770) 608-4848
    http://www.adairsvillesportingrange.com/

    Next closest to you, it would seem, would be in Dalton, near the state line. The only other remotely near the Atlanta area that I know of is South River Gun Club in Covington (near Conyers, which is a long way away):

    South River Gun Club 5205 Highway 212 N, Covington GA 30016 (770) 786-3752
    http://www.southrivergunclub.com/

    More ranges:

    Welcome. I've been looking for the same...since I'm used to the DNR outdoor ranges in Indiana.

    But as for any being close....about an hour from me is all i can find.

    Monday the wife and i are going to check out Governors.

    Finally send a little stress down range.

    Plenty of subjects to chat about here...dive in!

    Creekside range is in Taylorsville which isn't that far from you, maybe 45 minutes. It takes me 30 minutes from Rome. 25, 50, 100 and 500 yards available.
