Steel Targets on the 100/200 yard range.

The steel targets on the 100/200 yard range are available for use.  They were made by a steel target manufacturer and are rated for rifle and pistols.  Here are some guidlines to follow when using these targets.

  • The targets are rated for 3200 feet per second at the point of impact.

  • Do not use steel core or armor piercing ammo.

  • Full metal jackets are ok.

  • Minimum distance for rifle rounds is 100 yards.

  • Handgun (handgun calibers) can be shot at 15 yards or more.  (If you feel splatter, move back)

  • Safety glasses are required on active ranges and are critical when shooting steel.

  • Discontinue using the targets if there are signs or cracking or cratering, they will be replaced.

  • You can use paint to cover impacts so you can see your hits. 

  • If you use stick on targets, clean it up after shooting.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask the Range Officer

 

Thanks, Nelson Frost, Range Officer

Sign on the 25 yard range Shoot up and damaged

Before the Club meeting last night we walked the ranges; the sign posted on the 25 yard range was damaged by someone that has little or no respect for club property.  If anyone knows of who damaged the sign by shooting it up; please contact a club officer.  This is not only unsafe and disrespectful, but very costly to the club.  While on the same note; the shed for the carboard has been cleaned up and the cardboard placed overhead, new cardboard has been cut for use and placed within reach.  Please keep the shed clean and when done shooting; pickup ALL brass, shotgun shells and cardboard and place them in the locations for debris.  Cardboard goes in the dumpster, and brass in the brass cans, if you do not take your shotgun shells they go in the dumpster as well.  WE are not your mothers, Clean up after your done on the range.  Keep the grounds clean and presentable to all memebers.  Thank you in advance for your help.
