In Idaho, The Department of Fish and Game helps facilitate safe gun ranges and shooting sports for visitors and residents of the state. The state is also home to several private facilities.

Here are six spots for firearms and pistol practice in Idaho:

1. George W. Nourse Public Shooting Range
Nampa, Idaho
This public range is free and is not staffed. It contains nine shooting lanes separated only by berms. Pistol and rifle shooting are both allowed. It is open in daylight hours only.

"Far away from everything. No annoying range officers or ridiculous rules. Do what you want and clean up after yourself," writes a reviewer on Facebook.

2. Diamondback Shooters 
Lewiston, Idaho
Diamondback Shooters provides a public shooting option in an area of Idaho where many gun ranges are closed to the public. The indoor facility features four shooting lanes. It will allow any pistols and rifles "under 50 caliber and up to 3500 fps." The store sponsors competition shooting.

"The only problem I have … is that they are pricey, but then they are the only game in town," writes a reviewer on Yelp.

3. Lewis-Clark Wildlife Club
Lapwai, Idaho
This range has six benches for shooting pistols or rifles out to 100 yards plus 18 more benches with a maximum 550 yards. It is handicap accessible and features a professional grade permanently mounted chronograph, two automatic clay pigeon trap machines for shot gun practice. Range Safety Officers oversees the area. There is a membership fee, but the public is also welcomed. 

"It's fun by a non-profit club and the Range Officers are not paid. No sales pitch for ammo, guns, etc. ... Safety is a really big deal with them so the shooting and target change time periods are supervised,"  writes a reviewer on Google.

4. Black’s Creek Public Shooting Range 
Kuna, Idaho
This range does not allow fully automatic pistols or rifles. It is open to the public and has a small fee for day use. The gun range is operated by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

"Great Range. Only downfall is the somewhat limited hours. But this is the only range that has long range sniper lanes," writes a reviewer on Google.

5. Parma Rod and Gun Club 
Parma, Idaho
This membership gun range had rifle and pistol shooting lanes. The club promotes pistol shooting, practical precision rifle shooting and long range tactical rifle shooting.

"Found Parma to be a top notch facility. Looking forward to heading back next year," writes a reviewer on Google.

6. Cavendish Sporting Clays 
Lenore, Idaho
This shooting facility focuses on clay shooting. It has 10 shooting stations and encourages beginners to try the sport. A shotgun and ammo is all that is required and they do not offer pistol or rifle ranges at this location. It also does not have skeet, trap or 5-stand shooting.
