Reloading Classes

Have you thought about learning how to reload? We are now offering reloading classes for shotshell reloading, and will be offering classes for metallic cartridge reloading sometime this summer. These are NRA classes, taught by NRA-certified Instructors. For more information or to sign up for a class, click here.

Heated Rifle/Pistol Range

Subscriptions are now available to the general public for our heated rifle/pistol range. We are building 8 lanes up to 200 yards, and 8 lanes up to 50 yards. Our current plan is to open the range early this summer. Stop at the Club or call, and ask for me, for further information or to purchase a subscription.

Construction will continue as the weather allows. We have installed our first trailer, with a second structure to follow, which will allow us to install a heating system and shoot rifle and pistol year-round in relative comfort. We will do our best to minimize disruption of shooting during construction.
