Any indoor gun ranges in the GVA?

Are there any indoor gun ranges around the GVA which are open to public and don't require a membership?

I was on the mainland last week for work training and went to DVC in PoCo with some buddies and had a blast (pardon the pun).
Their setup is pretty sweet, $30 cover and you can shoot any of their guns as much as you want (they have a good seleection of 9mm's, .40's & .45's Shot guns, Magnums (357 up to 500) even a DE50. You just have to pay for ammo.

Do they have anything like this out here?

I'm thinking shooting might be a hobby I want to get into, and I'm even thinking of getting my PAL.

As far as I'm aware the only ranges are the outdoor ones near durrance, the one off mctavish, and malahat (i'm sure there are probably more). The guys in the firearms section at Island Outfitters (Douglas & Cloverdale) would probably be the ones to talk to.
If you have any luck let me know, its definately something I'd like to take a shot at (sorry, I had to)

My buddy took a couple shots with that thing. When he shot it, everyone else on the ranged stopped for a second to look over.

I had the most fun with the pistol grip 12 gauge remmington and a couple boxes of slugs.

A cool gun I never got to try was their Thompson SMG (Tommy Gun). Of course it was converted to semi-auto which kind of sucked.

SPD has a semi-trailer that is a shooting range. It isn't open to the publc, but if you havea semi tractor you could steal it.

dvc is the only range in BC you can walk in and rent guns. all other ranges you need to bring your own, most of them you need to be a member or go with a member. there are a couple of rental ones in alberta.
