I don't see why there are negative reviews on the owner. I find he and his wife to be very friendly and polite. They are very safety conscious and Iam sure if you act like a knucklehead he would probably kick you out. Just follow safety rules and you will have an enJoyable time at Bracken.

I fully agree with jskeens56. The rangemaster has a horrible attitude. Although I am no pyschiatrist, I believe that the rangemaster has a mental disorder, and being around firearms is probably not the best occupation for him.\r \r I am a 20 year veteran of the U.S. Army, I have served in many different Infantry and Armor units- believe me, I am accustomed to people yelling at people.\r \r I can understand that yelling and attitude are justified when there is a safety issue. \r \r But when there isn't a safety issue. Why the yelling and attitude?\r \r So here we are back at the question of mental disorder again....\r \r this rangemaster is a born loser with a gun which gives him an attitude.\r \r I second jskeens56 again- by saying THIS PLACE AND THIS GUY ARE GOING TO BE ON THE NEWS! \r \r

Do not go to Bracken if you are experienced with your weapons and wish to enjoy shooting them. Do go if you want to be highly supervised and treated like a child. I have been twice, and both visits were miserable. You can not use your own targets. You are constantly eye-balled by the condescending, RUDE, and questionably insane range master. During my last visit, the range master confronted me on the pistol range for firing more than one round every two seconds. I was firing one round per second. He considered this rapid firing, and literally screamed at me for it as if I was an unruly child. When I asked him what rate of fire he would like me to keep, he pointed his finger at me, less than two feet from my face, as if he were about to challenge me, and yelled ""One round every two seconds! I'm telling you, and I mean it!"". I did not appreciate it much at all. I simply finished shooting because I had already paid. I will not return EVER. Besides, this moron range master is going to pop off to the wrong idiot with a loaded .45, and I do not want to be around when that happens. But, I will shake my head and say ""I told you so"" when I see it on the news. Besides, they are way over priced, and only have a 100 yard rifle range. Thumbs down.

Friendly folks but not much to the operation. Limited supplies but lots of room to shoot. $7 per gun - no auto or rapid fire and no assault pistols. Pistol range was better before they added an awning that is now in the way if you're taller than 5'6".
