    All of these are in the Columbia/Lexington area of SC.

    In Lexington there is Defender on Hwy 6 and Lexington Guns and Shooting Range on Hwy 378.

    In South Congaree there is Midcarolina Rifle Club.

    West Columbia has Shooter's Choice.

    The Harbison/Columbia/St Andrew's area has Palmetto State Armory's new facility.

    I'm sure there are others I'm unaware of too.
