I am considering adding a shotgun for home defense. I have never had the opportunity to fire a shotgun. I will not own a shotgun unless I can find a place to practice and become familiar with it. The problem is I live in the Augusta area, and there are no ranges near here that I know of that allow shotgun target shooting - to test shot patterns, etc. There is a skeet/trap range in the area, but they do not allow any other form of shotgun practice. I figure it might look stupid to shoot trap with a tactical shotgun ! Does anyone know of a range around Augusta (maybe 60 mile radius) that would fill my needs. Does anyone maybe live around Augusta and have several acres of land that you practice on? Maybe we can meet up some weekend? Let me know what you think. Thanks!
