Embriodered range hats and shirts!

This is a range fundraiser aimed at helping us purchase a new skeet thrower. Thanks to Mark's work, we now have custom made hats and sweatshirts. Hats are one size fits all and in various colors for $15. Sweatshirts are heavy weight in Navy Blue. L & XL are $30, 2XL is $32.50 and 3XL is $35. Hooded sweatshirts will also

We tried leaving the pistol range open during scheduled shoots on the left side of the range. That didn't work because pistol fire kept shooters from hearing range officers' comands. That's a safety issue, so the pistol range will be closed to pistol shooters during scheduled shoots.

And a Warning: Shooters using AR pistols are destroying steel reactive targets on the pistol range. Those and all magnum calibers are prohibited for that very reason.

......Please Read & Heed......

New target frame bases have been installed at the 50 and 100-yard berms.
They are not to be moved nor shot at for any reason.
Doing so will be considered willful destruction of range property and the offender will be billed for the damage and lose range privileges for the remainder of the year.

is an all-around outdoor experience not only for shooting, it’s also great if you want to experience shooting outdoors. They have an outdoor pistol range that has realistic simulations added to it. 
Using these simulations, you can train yourself to face a home invasion,a hostage situation, or a terrorists attack that will help you prepare if those situations do happen in real life.
There is also a classroom, a backyard, and an offhand barricade. They also have other shooting activities you can try like the memorial skeet shoot, pins ‘n plates, redneck clays, and black powder.
