We can accommodate 10 pistol shooters or 10 rifle shooters in the standing position. The range can accommodate 8 rifle shooters in the prone or kneeling position. We have no facilities for shotgun or black powder. Hours of operation are 8am to 10pm. We reserve the last half hour (9:30pm to 10pm) for .22 caliber only.

NRA membership can be purchased through the Club at a discount. Once application has been made, a prospective member will be assigned a sponsor who will acquaint the applicant with the rules of the club, ensure the applicant handles his firearm in a safe manner and assist the applicant in developing his marksmanship skills such that he can place 20 consecutive rounds on a 2 ft. X 2 ft. target at 25 yards.
The non-refundable application fee is $100. Dues are $60 per year and are due every January 1st .
