Great place for a beginner to learn to fly, lots of helpful people.
Excellent staff, strong on safety and helpful providing wise advise. There is a variety of target paper you can choose from. The booth design is well thought of. An adjustable screen prevents hot brass from landing on shooters. A small and tall pistol table and a wider seated lower one for long guns per booth. Metal target frames provide easy nailing on a very clean and rock free soil. Hoping they install some form of target placement guides instead of the trial and error assisted by the RSOs today. There is a tree line that slows down wind and makes this range great for sighting in your iron, red dot or scope.
This is by far one of the best RC airfields I have seen. Good area, not obstructions, and always a good group of people willing to help you out and get you flying.
Some people complain about the ROs, rules in a gun range range is great and necessary for everyone's safety! Knuckleheads needs not here. The range officers, are firm but very friendly and nice. No issues here at all.
Love this park but would like something to be done about people waiting at the gate for someone to leave and then they get in through the “out” gate. I’ve seen this happened on many occasions during the week. I paid for my right to use this park and resent others getting in for free. I wish the entrance and exit gates were not together.
The Trap & Skeet were always excellent. But, the rifle range used to be so unfriendly and understaffed that it was almost always an unpleasant experience. That has changed, they now have full staff and make full use of the facility. From rude and seeming resentful that you are there to friendly and helpful. Not sure when it changed because I had been driving to far away ranges for awhile, but been out 3 times this year and it was consistently pleasant. You still need to follow the rules!!
There's always a great group of dogs (and owners!) here. My spaniel loves it here and there's tons of room to RUN!
I have found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. There are rules in place for everyone’s safety. They are simple and easy to follow. Generally range staff will not interfere in your particular shooting situation unless you appear to be having a problem or committing a major “no no” such as pointing a gun in the wrong direction, improper handling of a firearm which could cause personal injury or, consistently missing the target. Then, a Range Officer will attempt to assist you unless you tell him or her that you do not need or want the assistance.
Usually, my boyfriend and I drive down to Miami to shoot at our favorite outdoor range. We came to Markham on a whim because our busy work schedules didn't permit us to drive 45 mins down there. I wasn't aware that sleeveless shirts weren't permitted, since our normal range allows it. Not a big deal, and it was my fault for not checking. But when we got there and were attempting to set up, the "attendant" assigned to us wouldn't leave me alone. I felt like he was babysitting me. I've been shooting a rifle for quite some time now, and don't even have a problem with 1 shot per 5 seconds. But if you're going to critique every move I make and hang over my shoulder, I'd rather wait to go to the Miami range. Sure, Markham's schedule is easier. But as someone else here said, the attendants think they're Drill Sergeants. I was extremely uncomfortable and couldn't even have fun. I would say that if you're a woman, beware. They're going to treat you like you're a stay-at-home housewife from the 1950's.
Everybody is highly professional. And they run this range like a CMP or NRA range. So if you can't follow some very simple instructions, go home and play HALO on your Playstation. Rules are for yours, mine, and everyone else's safety. The Markham Park range is a wonderful place to shoot. And a great place to train your kids.
