Our outdoor handgun range consists of three bays with steel plate targets and dirt backstops. There are concrete walls between the bays. Backers are available to hang paper targets. The ranges are for member use only, except for handgun events and competitions. Wear your membership card in plain sight when using the facilities.
The handgun ranges are closed to the general club membership whenever sporting clays is open. Organized handgun events may occur on the same dates as sporting clays.
Action Handgun Match & Practice Sessions
The club offers organized matches and practice sessions on various dates. All of the events have a participation fee. Practice sessions usually last 3 hours and cost $5. Come and go whenever you like during the time of the session and shoot as often as you like. Everyone helps out and takes turns.
During practice sessions holsters and magazine holders are recommended. Accommodations are made so that everyone can have fun, regardless of skill level or equipment. Guidance for shooters new to the action shooting disciplines will be available. During matches, various types of equipment may be required depending on the kind of match it is. For example, Steel Challenge format does not require magazine holders while “run & gun” does.
