Range Layouts

The Club has five ranges including a Rifle Range, Pistol Range, Shotgun Fields, Archery Range, and Tactical Bays.  Be sure to read the Range Safety Rules for these ranges and follow all the other rules as posted near the entrance. Remember to raise the range flag when the range is in use and lower the range flag when the range is not in use. Additionally, all range are closed during range cleanups and some ranges are closed during sanctioned events so be sure to check the calendar.

 

Rifle Range

The Rifle Range has 20 firing stations, nine covered and eleven uncovered, with "real estate" target stands at approximately 100 and 200 yards and fixed steel gong targets at approximately 300 yards.  

Pistol Range

The Pistol Range has 10 firing stations, all covered, with pre-made target stands that can be moved from 7, 10, 15, 20, and 25 yards and fixed steel gong targets that you can shoot at 35 yards.  

Shotgun Fields

The Shotgun Fields contain skeet (eight stations) and trap (five stations).  Skeet is a recreational and competitive activity where participants, using shotguns, attempt to break clay disks automatically flung into the air from two fixed stations at high speed from a variety of angles.  Trap shooting was originally developed, in part, to augment bird hunting and to provide a method of practice for bird hunters.  Members are allowed to bring their own throwers.    

Archery Range

The Archery Range has five firing stations with stationary targets at 10, 20, 30, 40, and 50 yards.

Tactical Bays

The Club has six Tactical Bays that are used for sanctioned events such as Steel Challenge, Defensive Pistol, NoCo TAC, Rimfire Challenge, First Shots, Hunter's Education, etc. Tactical Bays 3, 4, 5, and 6 are closed to members except for sanctioned events. Tactical Bays 1 and 2 are open to members who have completed the online certification; however, be sure to check the calendar as sanctioned events take priority over member use.
