Due to Hurricane Ida and the flooding, currently the range is OPEN in a limited capacity and still needs work performed. Lanes 3 to 7 are currently open. Do NOT drive on the range. Time to sight in for deer season!

Please make sure that the target you are aiming at (50, 100, 200 or 300 yard targets) is between the ORANGE SAFE MARKERS located on either side of the 300 Yard target rack. Violators will be subject to loss of membership.

Example: If you are at Position 14 and shooting at Target #1 on the 200 yard target rack, you are NOT between the ORANGE safe markers.




Governor Hogan has lifted all outdoor mandates, and the advisory for indoor masks will end on July 1, 2021. As of this time, the cluib will maintain hand sanitizers for your health and safety.
