Miami Valley Shooting Grounds has been a destination for firearms training since 1953. In the decades since that grand opening, the company has grown into two locations?each with a retail store stocked to capacity with rifles, handguns, knives, and accessories. Onsite ranges and classrooms also make ideal training grounds, where instructors lead sessions that accommodate all skill levels.

At a Glance

Along its eponymous creek's scenic banks, Indian Creek Shooting Center's facility has a storied history. In 1977, John Sharp and John Seitz established the business with four trap fields, which eventually grew to include a sporting-clays course, skeet field, and 5-stand field. Now owned by the next generation of the Seitz clan, the ranges host competitions and daylong excursions by drop-in guests as well as members, who benefit from discounts on shooting, supplies, and use of a stocked fishing lake. A 4,000-square-foot clubhouse with kitchen facilities hosts events, such as regular archery and skeet tournaments, and a pro shop provides several gauges of shotgun ammunition.

Point Blank Range & Gun Shop exists in two places at once, both offering a safe and clean range that is open to the public. After stepping into either the Cincy West or Blue Ash location, visitors find themselves surrounded by 5,000 square feet of firearms, ammunition, and accessories. Away from this ever-changing inventory, Point Blank's team cleans handguns and teaches firearms classes for all skill levels. They also host free events, which cover topics such as safety and maintenance for new gun owners.

Elk Creek Hunt Club sharpens shooting skills and sates hungers with outdoor sporting clay excursions. Like a Gumby-Seagal crossover film, duos traverse 2,500 acres of preserve lands hot on the pursuit of clay targets aboard a two- or four-person golf cart (use of four-person carts is based on availability). Upon arriving at a sporting-clay station, gunslingers prepare to tag fleeing clays as they veer towards the forest-covered or watery horizon. Afterward, hunters can rest their boots inside the Elk Creek Lodge for a hearty meal. The club's lunch menu lists a slew of sandwich and salad options, such as the Angus steak burger with cheese (an $8.95 value), dressed in the traditional garb of lettuce, tomato, and onion, and dinnertime selections include a grilled, 16 oz. rib-eye steak (a $27 value) and a cut of salmon enlivened with a bourbon glaze (a $27 value).
