I belong to a modern range down in Chapel Hill, Tennessee. It's not really set up for the type muzzle loading shooting I'm use to but I'll make do. The range is secure, safe and you have the potential to shoot out to 1250 yards.
Flintlock is the only truly reliable source of ignition in a muzzle loader.

For me it's a 30 minute drive to a gated range and because I paid yearly fees for 20 years
I am a paid up life member and it is a 250 yard range with a side pistol range.
The club is called the Huntington Rifle and Pistol Club and I joined it in 1958.The club owns
the property and the shots all go into the base of a hill.

Seems to me I've heard of that range, Bob.  Our local, in-town range where we have trap, cowboy action, IPSC, general handgun, rifle to 200 meters, a 100 meter small bore & silhouette range, along with our 55 target BP trail walk, was formed in 1946.  The club house hosts air rifle indoors, 10 meter target and air rifle silhouette all winter.  I've been a member since 1979 and Taylor, a couple of years before that.
We're on leased land, from the City, always have been.

I shoot on my property. It's nice and convenient, though sometimes  I might like to hang out at a range to shoot the breeze with other BP shooters.

I used to do that a lot, Bob, smokeless and black powder but now, I prefer to shoot with my bro.

Mine is just a desert site but it's roughly a 30 minute drive.  To a real range it's about a 15 minute longer drive.

An official range is 20 min away. I'll just use it to sight in a new gun. After that for offhand shooting I just use national forest. About 5 min away. I like to shoot in solitude in a hunting situation. Lot's of woods walks shooting a knot in a dead tree, or stumps from different angles and distances.

About 5 miles, but any range further away than my back porch is too far.

50 ft. to 75 yd. out of shop window.
.22 LR 52 shot walking course covering 300 yards with 48 targets from 10 yds. to 160 yds. distance.  Ever target moves or makes noise when hit.
Also the same course can be used for ML, but not all targets.
  20 miles to the Buckskin Hills Shooting Complex with ranges to over 1500 yards.

We just got a new range.  It's directly across from the refrigerator.

One thing I do like about the range close to me is they have metal animal targets at different ranges. There's a buffalo at 500 yds. It's fun trying to hit it with a PRB. Pick a spot in the trees in the background and let it rip.

CF guys are always amazed when I hit it but they don't know how lucky I was. Still it's fun.

I am fortunate to live 2 miles south of town in the woods, and have a 100 yd. benchrest range in my side yard.  I limit my shooting to mlís and .22 from single shots.  ( all the neighbors seem to have ranges in their yards also.  Sounds like the OK Corral on some weekends.)   Our club, Fort Tassinong ML is located  SW of Kouts In. ( shameless plug for club) and about 13-14 miles as the crow flies.

Mike - how is it, you are "abroad"?
People want to know, as in "I'm" curious or is it a secret?

Used to be able to shoot far as I wanted at the old farm, but my new place I can can only get to 50 yards behind the house.  For longer ranges or the monthly match it's off to the Choptank Muzzleloaders club range, about an hour and a 15 min drive north.
