When can I handle my firearms after I arrive at the Range?
No firearms can be removed from your vehicle before checking in with the duty Range Safety Officer. The Range Safety Officer will have you (and everyone else in your party) sign in, cover the Range Rules, and direct you to the Range Safety Officer overseeing the area where you will be shooting. That Range Safety Officer will determine if and how your firearms are cased. He/she will then tell you when and how to safely move your firearms from your vehicle to the firing line tables. Firearms can only be handled or transported to or from your vehicle with the RSO permission when the Range is HOT. Visible holstered firearms are not allowed on our Range and must be put unloaded on the firing table with your other firearms with an Empty Chamber Indicator installed. No firearms may be touched or handled in any way when the Range is COLD.
Am I allowed to have my legally concealed carry firearm while I am at the Range?
Yes, as long as it remains concealed. If the firearm becomes visible to the Range Safety Officer, it must be unloaded and placed on the firing table with an Empty Chamber Indicator installed as described in the question above concerning all firearms.

With the paper targets, you can shoot out to a maximum distance of 100 yards. There are five steel gong fixed targets which are at 200 yards to 450 yards at 50 yard intervals.

The High Power Range is only open for shooting Events which will be listed on the Monthly Calendar on our web site or on the High Power web site. You can shoot at these Events whether you are a member or not. There is generally a fee for the different High Power Events. To be able to use the High Power Range during non-events, you need to be a member who has completed the Range Safety Officer Class and the High Power Training Class and do the required volunteer days for the year for both the Public Range and High Power Range.
Why isn’t the Range open all days of the week?
The Range is staffed completely by certified Range Safety Officer volunteers. Should you become a member, consider volunteering. The Range Safety Officers are members who volunteer their time to open the Range 3 to 4 times a year. Range Safety Officers must take a Range Safety Officer Training Class which is offered about five times a year. Once certified as a Range Safety Officer and volunteering the required number of days per year, RSO’s are able to use the Range during off hours when not open to the public.

Who should I contact if I would like to volunteer to help with projects at the Range?
