Rifle & Handgun Ranges

The Rifle Ranges include (2) 200 yard, (2) 100 yard, (2) 50 yard, and (1) 25 yard range, all with covered shooting benches.

The separate Handgun Range is 25 yards and includes reactive targets. Firearms allowed on the Handgun Range are limited to handguns only, in handgun calibers only. No shoulder fired firearms are allowed, including rimfire rifles, pistol caliber carbines, or AR Style pistols in rifle calibers such as .223/5.56×45, .300BLK, etc.   AR Style pistols in handgun calibers only are allowed and attached arm braces may only be used as designed for bracing, but they cannot be used as a buttstock and fired from the shoulder mounted position. Single Shot style handguns such as the T/C Contender and Encore may only be used on the Handgun Range if chambered in pistol calibers, not rifle calibers. The delineation of handgun versus rifle calibers can be found on the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute (SAAMI) website, www.saami.org. All those firearms noted above not allowed on the Handgun Range can be used on any of the Rifle Ranges, but not the Shotgun Patterning Range.
