No it's not but it works. I have one more range to add in Zion that allows the 5.7 and they are cheaper than all other ranges around the area

Since we are i, Harvard, Zion is to far. Thankfully our indoor test range is done and with our private outdoor I don't have to deal with any crap when I am testing ammo.

PALO ALTO RIFLE AND PISTOL CLUB
DONALDSONVILLE, LOUSIANA


Palo Alto Rifle and Pistol Club, originally chartered in 1940, is located on a 50 acre tract of land in Sugar Cane country on the West bank of the Mississippi River in Ascension Parish 40 miles east of Baton Rouge and 60 miles west of New Orleans. The facility consist of a multi-purpose 15 point 30 meter pistol and small bore rifle range, a 20 point multi-purpose 100 meter rifle range and a full 600 yard “across the course” rifle range complete with elevating targets and target pits. All ranges have covered firing points and the 600 yard range has firing positions and a shooting table at 200, 300, 500, and 600 yards.

The FsN is welcomed, but .50 cal center fire, armor piercing, tracer, explosive or incendiary ammunition is expressly prohibited.

Information on Match Programs is available on Palo Alto's home page. See the Match Calendar for match schedules.

The club is a private, non-profit corporation which is open to members and their guests seven days a week. The range is open to the general public for NRA sanctioned matches, for designated public sight in days prior to the hunting season, to organizations such as the Boy Scouts of America and other non-profit organizations who would be interested in putting on shooting and firearm related safety programs and events, for hunter education and concealed carry courses, as well as to local law enforcement for training purposes. 

Membership dues are $150 per year with a one-time $100 initiation fee. Junior memberships are available. Non-members can utilize the range three times as an accompanied guest of a member, after which application for membership is expected.

Yes the biulding is not that deep, Also rapid fire is against the rules, drawing from the hip or concealment to practice is against the rules, and it is pistol only. I am able to shoot in the back yard and this allows me to practice defensive shooting. I feel lucky to have this. If you see the six lane range at Fire power and all the holes that are all over and not down range then it is understandable why they have rules. Not all people have been trained in safety. :ponder:

From another thread:
joe_r95 wrote:Arkansas- Sturms In door gun range lets me shoot my ps90 in his pistol range. The owner Steve is 5.7 friendly, owns the handgun, and ar conversion. Refuses to shoot my ps90 because he doesnt want to buy one. Wouldnt take any hot loads there, he said his rule was nothing over 2000fps, but the ss197 is ok in his range. Downside for me is its only a 25 yard range. Upside is its less then a mile from work, and he keeps a large stock of ammo(but only ss197).

Only indoor range that I know of that allows Five Seven, but then again you can shoot anything at this range.

To whom ever is maintaining this thread, it might be good to note that Wade's in Bellevue Washington actually rents FsN's to shoot on their range
