Shooting Ranges

Ranges are only available to members, and only during allowed times, as shown in rule 15 below. A member may bring up to 2 guests.

We have two outdoor shooting ranges at the club: a 200 yard rifle range with covered firing points and a pistol range.

There are target stands that you can move to different distances, but you'll need to bring targets and a staple gun or tape to affix your targets.

To help our volunteers who mow the grass, please tear down used paper targets and throw them away. Otherwise, they fall apart in the weather and litter the range.
