The rifle range consists of target boards and earthen backstops at 50, 100, 200 and 300 yards. The shooting is done from six concrete benches with adjustable steel seats. The entire firing line is housed for protection from the elements.
The handgun range consists of an earthen backstop at 25 yards from the firing line. The handgun house contains four covered firing stations.

Note: The Rifle Range is here as a result of a lot of work from a few club members. Take care of it as funds and resources for maintenance are limited. SAFETY FIRST and ENJOY!
