I thought the membership fee was a one-time charge. This was relayed to me by two guys who were waiting on the gun registration line at HPD in September. One of these guys swears by X-ring, and he does not look like an owner or employee. Look, a lot of people who live in west Oahu do not have time to visit KHSC. Gas is not cheap. My regular gun shops do not have 6.5 Creedmoor inventory, and this has been the case for months. If X-ring has 10 or more boxes, then they should post this information. That would be a positive.
There is the membership fee, and there is the "subscription" fee. Have to pay both.
The lifetime membership is $29.99, PLUS you have to choose one of the following:
(1) $20 "Daily" Range Fee -- discounted LE and Military: $15 . That's good for 1 day at the range PER PERSON, not per lane. Firearm rentals not included with day rates.
(2) $49/month and get unlimited use of the paper target lanes and complimentary rental of basic handguns and rifles.
That's the annual payment price. If you pay monthly, it'll cost you $69/month.
(3) $79/month and get lane use plus basic and "Black Label" firearm rentals included.
Again, that's the annual payment price. If you pay monthly, it's $99/month.
Add to that your targets and ammo -- must be purchased from the range. Any ammo you don't fire goes home with you .... but you can't bring it back to use! Sometimes they are out of the caliber you want/need, so you can't shoot even though you may have paid the regular or VIP monthly subscription on top of the $29.99 membership.
Firearm rentals are $20 for handguns, $25 for rifles. Black label/Premium firearm rentals are $35. I assume that's for the duration of your range time vs. hourly, since there's nothing stated on the webpage I can see.
These prices came straight from their website. There's a chance the prices are not current if the site hasn't been updated with current prices.
I live in Mililani, and I have never been shooting there. I'm used to mainland indoor ranges that charge $3-$5 per hour, let me bring my own ammo and targets, and often let me go for 1-2 hours more for free if I want if they aren't busy. They check for steel tip ammo with a magnet, and require factory loads only. That's about it. Some of them have monthly and annual memberships with varying prices depending on how often you shoot.
None of the mainland ranges I used went above $100/year for unlimited use memberships, because they know you'll eventually buy ammo, targets and rent firearms to try. I'm sure they make a lot of firearms sales to range visitors, too. The last range I used in NC cost me $5 for 2 hours shooting and 2 large silhouette targets -- no membership fee required, and I used my own factory ammo. I just had to watch a range orientation and safety video for 10 minutes. Most ranges collect your spent brass to resale and reload to sell. It's one way they keep the prices down.
A few years ago, I visited "The" Palmetto State Armory (PSA) range and gun store in SC. It happened to be Memorial Day weekend -- unlimited free range time the whole weekend to the public. The ammo I purchased was cheaper than bulk prices in Hawaii. And the range was super clean, brightly lit, and very modern. I spent maybe $2 for targets -- ammo would have been $15 per 50rd box for 9mm, but I used my own since I had it with me.
