How do I get the combination to the gate locks?
You must be a current member and have your signed Range Waiver on file with the Rangemaster. The combination changes every year. Click here to download a waiver.

How do I get into the clubhouse and target room?
Only Range Officers have keys. There is no need for access because there are target stands hanging up on the left side of the clubhouse that you are welcome to use. Just put them back afterwards. There is also a flat red box containing backing cardboard and paper targets for your use. You'll need your own stapler.

What is the thing built out of railroad ties on the firing line?
That's a Safe Table. If you need to clear a weapon or work on one that is malfunctioning that is where you do it. It is there for protection from an accidental discharge, hence the name.

What's to the right of the clubhouse?
That's the Pistol Range set up forand walk-through shooting. It's open whenever the range is open. Put things back the way you found them and police your brass. The range to the left of the clubhouse is set up for target shooting with pistols and rifles and for shooting clays. There are berms at 25, 50, and 100 yards.

How long to scheduled shoots take?
It depends on the shoot and how many attend. Black Powder is the longest, and they clear the range by 4:00. Shotgunners clear the range by 2:00, and Both Pins 'n Plates and Combat Shoots are done by 1:00 or so. Once concluded, the range reverts to members and their guests only.

Can I bring a friend?
Yes, though you must stay with them, and if they plan to shoot, you must have them sign a Range Waiver. Those can be downloaded by clicking here.

Are children allowed?
Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times and must have appropriate eye and ear protection whether they are shooting or just observing.

What are the scheduled shoots and when are they held?
We have Redneck Clays, Black Powder, Pins 'N Plates (Rimfire), and Combat (Centerfire Pistol). Consult the individual links on the range page for details. Check the range schedule.

What's going on between the wooden fence and the road?
Those 500-pound hay bales are there for archery practice, for those who might not want to do the whole archery course. The entrance for the new 3D archery range is across the street from the rifle range at the back of the parking lot.
