We are pleased to announce West Benchrest is officially open. Due to the limited width we had to work with, 8 shooting benches have been provided for 150-yards and 100-yards. The 50-yard target line only has 7 shooting benches starting with bench 2. Steels have been installed at the 150-yard target line and a 25-yard scope sighting target has been provided for bench 1. All targets are the same color for each shooting lane and all target holders and benches are marked with their corresponding number. Handicapped parking has been provided on both ranges, though not marked as of yet, these parking areas should be reserved for those who require special access.
Thanks to all the volunteers who braved the heat to get old (East) Benchrest back up and running and making new (West) Benchrest operational once the dirt work was completed. In the coming weeks we will be ordering more steel to hang up at 300 yards on East Benchrest and possibly add a few more steels at West Benchrest.
We are officially out of the target frame building business and, in the future, we will convert all wooden post to the new target hanger design. Two ranges means there will be much more flexibility, but it also means more maintenance. Please continue to support the OKCGC by volunteering and doing your part to make our Gun Club one of the top shooting facilities in the nation.
