Here are five spots for firearms and pistol practice in the state of Mississippi:

1. GunHo Indoor Shooting Range & Firearm Store: Located in Pass Christian, this facility offers eight lanes, two 100-yard rifle lanes, a retail shop and range gun rentals. Instruction includes a basic pistol course and an enhanced concealed carry course.

"I absolutely love this range! I try to come shoot at least a few days a month! It's a great facility! I will be bringing my shooting club down shortly after state competition!" writes a reviewer on Facebook.

2. Bullz-I: Located in Lucedale, this facility provides a public shooting range for rifles, pistols and shotguns. Members have access to "the long ranges (300, 400 and 500 yards) not offered to the public" as well as the tactical range.

"After going to Bullz-I for the first time I was highly impressed with the level of service I received! I couldn't recommend this range/store more. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable while helping me and the range had all of the comforts I could ask for," writes a reviewer on Google.

3. Magnolia Rifle and Pistol Club: Located in Florence, this private outdoor gun range features covered firing lines with concrete floors and ambidextrous shooting benches. There is a lounge area, a pavilion and a storage area for shooting equipment. "All new members are required to attend a Range Usage & Safety Course before receiving their member badge."

"If you reside in the Jackson, MS area, this is the BEST deal going for a place to shoot. They have 8 separate ranges for member use with the rifle range extending out to 300 meters. Plenty of short ranges for the handgun shooters," writes a reviewer on Google.

4. TGC Outdoors: Located in Abbeville, this firearm and outdoor supplies company provides shooting lanes for handguns and rifles. Daily or annual fees apply and they offer a 20 percent discount to active duty military and police.

"I love this place. Everyone there is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. The prices are extremely reasonable, and the service is second to none," writes a reviewer on Facebook.

5. Desoto Rifle & Gun Club: Located in Como, this facility states it is "Northwest Mississippi’s first choice for a safe place to experience the joy of the shooting sports" as well as the largest facility in Mississippi. Ranges include a 200-yard general-purpose range with 20 firing points, three pistol bays, and a 600-yard long distance rifle range with eight target positions "designed to accommodate NRA-sanctioned rifle matches."

"Love this place! I spend a lot of weekends down there shooting pistols, rifles and shotguns. Great for practice and they have some fun competitions, with steel challenge and IDPA. Definitely worth the membership," writes a reviewer on Yelp.
