IIRC, 'Eastern Range' here denotes the official jurisdiction of Mr Bhaskarjyoti Mahanta. It does not mean 'range' as in shooting range.
I dont think any civilian shooting facilities exist anywhere other than in Guwahati, the ASRA range was the first of its kind in Assam and may still be the only one available, unless there have been any other recent developments, as am a little out of sync with the region currently.
The ASRA range is built on land belonging to the 4th Assam Police Battalion in Kalapahar, but is looked after by ASRA. The cops do come in at times to practice.
It has 30 firing points each for 50-metre and 10-metre events,four bays for 25-metre events and one range each for trap and skeet (equipped with SIUS ASCOR and Laporte machines). Get in touch with Bhabha Kalita, and if you have the time/money/inclination, weekend trips from Jorhat to GHY shouldn't keep you from your passion.

In case you are from Jorhat ask someone for Cinnamara. In Cinnamara ask for ABITA office. Opposite the ABITA office is the Ross Bunglow which is the official residence of the DIG Eastern Range. After Mr Mohanta it was Mr Bishnoi and now it is Mr Anurag Tanka. PM me your no . May be I will help in one way or other.

I understand your parents concerns, so if you cant get to a range right now. Pick up a decent springer like the B40(think there's one up for sale on the forum) or an even cheaper IHP and get started in your backyard.

There are just 11 legal gun owners here in Jorhat AFAIK.
I don't have too much money.
