Come visit us during public shooting hours if you wish to shoot! We offer regular public shooting hours for the community. Since we wish all shooters using the live-fire range to be safe and have fun, we go through a brief range orientation and safety briefing with each shooter. Here are the steps you will need to complete:

  1. Check in at the front counter
  2. Complete the new shooter registration form
  3. Receive the Range Orientation and Safety Briefing (about 20 minutes)
  4. Read, understand, and sign a Rules Acknowledgement Form
  5. Review the orientation and ask questions (if you have any) with a range staff member
  6. Pay for lane rental
  7. Put on eye and ear protection before entering the live-fire range
  8. Have fun and be safe!
How Much Does it Cost?

Revenues from our public shooting help off-set the cost of maintaining the facility for use by the public.
