Raton NM- NRA Whittington Center is the destination. Once you arrive you don’t want to leave.
Cave City KY- Rockcastle Shooting Center has a Lodge and Winery on site with tons of local attractions in addition to the golf course and ranges.
It is really cute to see little boys and girls with their plastic guns holstered up just like Mom and Dad. For many families they have built relationships and plan this time together year after year.
