Range Rules

Cardinal Rules of Firearm Safety

1. Always treat every firearm as if it is loaded

Even if you’re absolutely certain a gun is unloaded

2. Never point a firearm at anything you are not willing to destroy

Always keep your gun pointed in a direction that would safely stop the bullet should it discharge

3. Always be sure of your target and what is beyond it

You are responsible for every bullet that exits the muzzle of your gun. This includes if you miss your target or if the bullet passes through your target and strikes something behind it. Once a bullet is fired you own it.

4. Always keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target and ready to fire

Shotgun Patterning Board

The patterning range is located on the right side of the road after you enter the gate. Only use lead shot loads on this range and not slugs. Please use this range for patterning as the use of birdshot on the pistol range destroys the backer boards quickly.

25 – 50 Yard Range

The range most commonly referred to simply as the pistol range is located on the left as you come inside the gate. This range is used for any pistol or rifle and is open for use from 9am to 30 minutes before dusk. This range is open every day of the year. We only ask that you only shoot at paper targets that are attached to the backer boards located at the 25 and 50 yard backstops. Markers are placed on the ground at 5 yard intervals from the 25 yard backer board in the event that you want to shoot closer than the 25 yard covered shooting position. Anything, with the excepting of shotguns firing birdshot can be used on this range.

100 Yard Rifle Range

This is the 100 yard range located on the left, up the hill past the club house. This range is mostly used for organized shoots, like the 17 and 22 cal bench rest shoots, balloon shoots, etc.  This range is closed Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday.
