For accuracy's sake, it is the 29 Palms Pistol and Rifle Club and dues are now $60 a year.

OP what hours are you thinking you have to "abide by"? The range is open 24/7/365 once you are a member as you get your own key.

As to "why pay a fee?", because does the open desert provide covered firing positions, target carriages, target backers, male and female restrooms? How about lights to shoot pistol after dark when the temps have cooled down? A safe impact area so you don't inadvertantly send rounds into someones property?

Rifle carriages are at 50, 100, 200, 300, 400yds, with one way out there at 1000yds IIRC. Pistol carriages are at 7, 15, 25 and 50yds. If you have portable stands you can set them up at any distance you would like as well.
