Rifle

Our rifle range consist of 50, 100 and 200 yard adjacent but separate ranges with all shooting positions under cover. Each individual range operates independent of the other enabling hot and cold lines being controlled by those on the separate ranges. All range positions have movable but stable benches for your convenience. Target frames are provided.

We have a very active rifle program which includes matches for Service Rifle, M1 Garand, Vintage Military Rifle, CMP Rimfire Sporter, Center Fire Bench Rest, and 22 Rimfire Bench Rest. At times other matches will be shot depending on interest. As the match types and dates can change, please refer to the current calendar for scheduled matches including dates, times, details for each match and Match Director contact information. New shooters are always welcomed and will receive personal instructions and any help requested from one of our experienced shooters.

Current Fees for all matches are: $5.00 for Club Members and $10.00 for Guests
