Default Insight Range and Field Time... Best time to go on weekend?


I normally go to the range on Friday afternoons since I get out of work early. Sometimes though work or normal life intervenes so I don't get the chance.

So... what are the best times (less crowded) for either Insight in Artesia or Field Time in Stanton on the weekends?

I do prefer Insight because it's closer to me but even when they start allowing .223 I'm still limited to FMJ there. There's no restrictions at Field Time.

What are your experiences?

If you hit up Field Time in the mornings, its usually not too bad. I've gone a few times in the afternoon and evening on the weekends and its gets pretty crowded.

If you're not a member, you could be waiting for awhile for a lane to open up, especially when members come in and get priority over you.

Also, I've noticed a lot of new shooters on the weekend. Usually its a pretty decent experience, but there were a few trips where I couldn't pack my gear up faster to get out of there. The RO usually do a decent job, but they cant be everywhere at one time. Just be aware of your surroundings and you'll be alright.

My experiences at Insight during the week are normally good. I haven't been there on a weekend, but I'm sure it's pretty packed.

Can't beat the small crowd on weekday mornings but right after 11am, about 10 people were shooting toda. Maybe because some people have this week off or are taking a few days off. I've made it there early weekday nights after 6pm and it's still pretty crowded. Definitely worth getting a membership. Cleanest air of any So cal range I know. Weekends before
2 pm or before 5pm are fair. Sundays are usually busy but right before closing is okay. Just call ahead and ask them.

Mornings are the best at insight. Less people, less chances of getting accidentally shot.
