We are slated to hold a Steel Challenge but I really want to do a USPSA type match. I'm just not sure what the condition of the range field will be in. Regardless we will do something. Show up at the rifle range located at 2729 Garrisonville road between 0800 and 0815 in order to register and attend the safety brief at 0830, we will go hot at 0900. We usually go until about 1500. The price is $20 for members $30 for nonmembers and juniors are free.. 181103%20USPSA.pdf Ed McBride has been making updates to the rifle/pistol range. The pistol range has been extended to 60 yards to accommodate longer range handguns. A right of way for power and access has also been established. The rifle and pistol range berms are being improved. Construction of a berm to separate the rifle/pistol ranges is complete. Check the web site and Facebook before coming to the range for closings due to construction or activities.

Please reuse the backers if you take them from the range. If you have a source of backers, bring them to the range shed.
Police used brass to keep the range clean for everyone.
If you are showing a gun to someone at the range, do it during a 'HOT' range and at the benches on the firing line.

Guest Shoot at Rifle/Pistol Range:
A limited guest policy has been initiated at the rifle/pistol range.
On the first Sunday of every month, members can bring two guests to shoot at the range.
The cost is $20 for a half day session (9 - 12 in the morning or 12:30 - 3:30 in the afternoon).
RSOs will be present on guest days to monitor and control the range.

RSOs Needed:
The Chapter has approved rules that will allow RSOs to bring up to two paid guests as a
compensation for four hours of RSO volunteer service. This benefit will be $20 / 3 hour sessions similar to the regular monthly rifle/pistol guest sessions. See Marty Hanse at monthly meetings or Peter Harvey for range use guest vouchers for this RSO benefit. The vouchers may also be used at the shotgun and archery ranges.

No guests are allowed on the ranges except under the conditions mentioned above!
