Modern Rifle and Pistol Ranges
We now have 2 ranges open which offer a safe place to enjoy shooting your firearm and hone your marksmanship skills.
The two ranges, a Pistol Only range and a Combination range are treated as independent ranges When you sign in you will be asked to choose which range you wish to shoot on.
At busy periods we restrict range to 2 hours – if you wish to shot both ranges you will incur 2 charges but you will be able ot shoot for 2 hours on each range.
What’s the Difference?
Pistol Only Range
The Pistol Only range as the name suggests is for handguns 45 caliber and smaller (magnum loads are allowed).
No rifle cartridges or large handgun cartridges greater than 45 caliber are allowed.
No 223, 5.7x28mm, 454 Casull, 460 or 50 caliber allowed.
No black powder.
We allow standing only
There are 11 lanes with target stands at 10 yds and 50ft (approx. 17 yds)
The Combination range is for pistols and rifles
All handguns up to 50 caliber are allowed
Magnum loads are allowed
Black powder is allowed**
Shotguns are allowed but you must shoot slugs (no shot allowed)
The 29 lanes have target stands at 25, 50, and 100 yds at each station
We only allow firing from a sitting position on this range
**If you intend to shoot black powder please make this aware to the RSOs on duty so we can give additional warning time of upcoming Cease Fires.
We pride ourselves on a safe, friendly place to shoot for the whole family.
Younger shooters require a parent or legal guardian to shoot depending on their age and firearm. *See bottom of page for more details.

We Have A Wide Variety of Firearms Training Available!
The gun club offers a variety of classes for the marksman, hunter, and casual shooter alike. NRA classes provide an opportunity for shooters to learn the key elements of shooting and safe gun handling.
Classes include Rifle, Pistol, Shotgun, and Personal Protection. NRA-certified instructors teach these classes with concern for your success and safety.
