Outdoor Range Hours Reminder

The Outdoor range’s 300 yd practice is from noon to dark. All shooting must stop when it is dark! Sumer Hours will be changing to 4:00pm to Dark when our time changes.
Any member caught abusing the range hours will be subject to disciplinary action!
Any and all Members should have their membership cards with them. Nobody should be upset to present their card to anyone else asking for it. Introduce yourself and ask to see their membership card if you don’t recognize the person.
If there should be any unsafe conditions, you will have their name. If you don’t get their name or their license plate number, it is hard for the board to address those concerns.

President’s Corner

Winter blues? Try your hand at one of our indoor matches. Smallbore rifle on Sunday mornings or Gallery pistol Monday evenings. With ongoing repairs and painting at the indoor range please be patient with the upgrades. Please remember to check your aim at the indoor range. We had someone shoot new holes in the ceiling on the weekend of the 6th. James is now inspecting the range daily for damage.
Thanks, Eric Hisey


As of January’s, board meeting we have 288 active members. With 91 of them having Indoor range access.
