Junior Rifle Club

This segment of the Club is open to male and female, ages 10-18, interested in learning to shoot. the participants are taught safety and marksmanship with the .22 caliber rifle on a 50 foot indoor range. This is a NRA approved program plus all equipment necessary to participate is furnished except the ammunition.

 

Due to state and federal regulations, participants must have a permission slip to participate. Further, Juniors must purchase and store at the range all ammunition obtained through us.

 

Junior Rifle Club opens Tuesday nights 6:45pm - 8:45pm during the school year starting the second Tuesday after school starts and ending after the state tournament. The rule is that if school is in session, we will be shooting.

 

 

 

 

Senior Rifle Club

 

Senior Rifle meets from mid-November. The last regular gallery league meet is in April. We shoot Friday nights from 6:30pm - 10pm.

 

Senior rifle is open to participation by shooters meeting the requirements to purchase and possess a rifle. This segment of the Club fires .22 caliber target rifles with any sights, from 4 positions, with the major emphasis on accuracy.

 

Participants must furnish their own equipment or make some arrangements to use a target type rifle. The Club does have some equipment available for use, but check in advance for availability.

 

 

2018 Indoor Pistol

 

Normal Schedule:

Monday 7pm - 9pm

Wednesday 7pm - 9pm

Saturday 10am - Noon

 

 

The pistol segment is the fastest growing and most co-ed of the club. The club does not own any handguns; therefore, to participate it is necessary to secure the use of a pistol.

 

There are leagues, pistol matches, and an all-new individual course available, or you can just shoot for practice.

 

Participants need not be members, but must meet membership requirements. No one under age 12 is permitted to fire on the range and those under legal age must be under the DIRECT supervision of a parent or guardian at all times.

 

Ear and eye protection is required during firing and is available at no additional charge.

 

Saturday is individual practice with safety as the only guideline.

 

Nightly shooting fees are as follows:

Members: $3.00

Non-Members: $10.00

 

The fee covers only 1 set of 3 targets; additional targets are available at 25¢ each.

EVENTS

Annual Meeting

We have been noting ceiling, baffle and facing damage on the indoor range. This is being causing by small, sub-compact revolvers and pistols that were never designed to be shot at 50 feet.

 

We will no longer tolerate shooters using guns that cannot put their rounds in a 10 X 14 target on indoor range. They present a safety problem.
