BTS-- As for you setting up your own targets and designing your own course no I don't know of any such place.

But, if you're interested in three-gun action shooting that includes human silhouette targets and steel plates both round and rectangular, you could come out to an organized match at some outdoor gun club. Even if you don't think you'll win any prize, think of it as a training opportunity with somebody operating a stopwatch and keeping track of your score.

Riverbend Gun Club in Dawsonville, and the South River gun club in Conyers are places that I've been to and seen these types of events going on while I was there for a different type of match (three position highpower rifle shooting.)
Gunsmoker…thanks for the suggestion of Riverbend and South River. I’ll check them out.

Ideally I just want to be able to set up my own steel targets and get lost in the sound of lead hitting said steel. Not looking to set up a course or anything like that. Just a way for me and my children to have some fun and get the audible confirmation of hitting the target instead of punching holes in paper. Wouldn’t mind setting up other targets as well like fruits, milk jugs, etc.

However, participating in a match is also something I’ve always wanted to do so I’ll definitely look into the places you suggested.

I can't believe nobody has mentioned the CMP range over in Talladega. Maybe 2 hours from Atlanta and a truly world-class facility. Not in the state of Georgia, but pretty close and open to the public. You have to watch a short safety video and you are good for a year. They are very strict on chamber flags and where you point your weapon, but they have pretty much any type of range available. You have to qualify on the 100 yd before they turn you lose to shoot longer ranges. It's off I-20 right behind the big race track. Not recommended to go during a race weekend.
Hmmmm….that’s a little outside my original search radius. However, I do occasionally have to travel to Birmingham for work. May have to work in some range time on my next trip.

Thanks!
