    dont know about indoor, but delaware has an excellent range!! it has standard target, broadhead, and lifelike shooting scenario course.
     

  3. Where abouts are you from? I know Tackle Shack here in Troy has an indoor range BUT I don't know if they will allow crossbows. I still just take mine out behind the barn with the block and sight her in
     
  4. american sportsmen in columbia station if you live in north east ohio.

    Your not going to find one that will allow you to shoot a cross bow inside. Best thing is to head to Delaware.

    I know this may seem naive, but why would they not let him shoot a crossbow indoors? Philosophical differences? I'm corn-fused.
     
  8. I wondered the same thing.
     
  9. From what I remember when shooting my old crossbow it seemed to zip through the targets more so than a compound bow did. Maybe that's just because the bolts were making such tight groups?
     
  10. Mine does not really drive them any deeper than my compound bow because of the weight factor. And if someone wanted to hammer tight groups its his/her arrows getting sacrificed. Maybe it has something to do with the risk of inadvertently firing it. That would seem to be the same risk factor as a gun range though.:confused:
     
  11. I honestly have no idea, but my guess would be the safety factor. Compound bows are more powerful than crossbows, so that's out. A compound or longbow is only drawn when facing the target. A loaded crossbow could be pointed anywhere, accidently. Again, just a guess.

    It may be a safety issue dictated by an insurance policy not the range its self. That kind of stuff happens all the time.
