How to 'select' specific values as a range in SQL?

Hi, not sure if this is the correct category, but I want/would like to know how to create a where clause
whereby it selects values based on a 'range' or a 'set' of values.

I.e., say I have a set of products from 1-100. Is there anyway to do something like:

"Select * from productsTable where productRangeID is in {1,3,5,18,22,30,100}"

*instead* of having to do something like:

Select * from productsTable where (productRangeID ='1' OR productRangeID ='3' OR productRangeID ='5' ... etc, etc)?

Thanks!
