if it's the one i'm thinking of
i went by there about three weeks ago and it was
closed up.
i stopped in there about a year ago they had four
guns in the diplay case and that was it.
i used to drive by it everyday and never saw a
car in the parking lot.
i work near there i'll ride by when i get off work
and see if they opened back up.
i'll let you guys know what i find out.
i get off at 5:00pm today.

Unless someone reopened it, you'll find it closed. I think it closed because of owners that didn't know how to run such a business.

Far as I knew they were open. Used to be known as Excaliber Pistol Range, now its like Tactical Concepts. I believe they are open to 8pm, have Bowling Pin shoots on Wednesdays. They have full autos to shoot and gun selection is mostly all Glocks. I shot down there about 2 weeks ago, nobody else was there, so you can kinda have the place to yourself. Its $15 for all day shooting.

Doc-

Try the outdoor range at Temple...forgot the name.

There is also a range in Grantville (indoor), south of Newnan. Don't know where you are, but those are another two.

I do shoot at Advanced in Temple

I have shot at Advanced in Temple quite a few times. I like shooting there for the most part even though it is an outdoor range. I really enjoy shooting my handguns at an indoor pistol range though and that is why I am asking about Tactical Concepts.

So now I guess Tactical Concepts is still open? On Bankhead Highway (HWY 78.) outside of D-Ville heading towards Lithia Springs? Located in a little shopping center next to a gas station? Are we all talking about the same place?

When I first went there a couple of years ago, it was being run by I think the same guy that goes by the handle FIREARMZ on this website. He ran a safe, legitmate place. However I go back a few months later and it seems that ownership had changed hands. The last time I went I was witness to gross, extreme negligence. I swore that I would never go back. All I really wanted to know is if it has cleaned up it's act (and the premisis, kinda dirty) and maybe got new owners or something. If that is the case then I might consider going back.

Yep, that's the place. Right next to the little road that used to go to the old Walmart on Fairburn Rd, in that little shopping center with a gas station, some kinda mom & pop blue plate restaurant. Its the only indoor range I know of in the Lithia Springs/Douglasville area. I think it has changed owners several times over the years since it was first built.
