Benchrest Range Updates:
We are finishing up our repairs to the benchrest range and we will soon begin the construction of an additional benchrest range where the old plinking range was located. We will make any needed enhancements to the east and west berms, remove the old plinking targets and cover and push the rear berm back to 100 yards, and install new shooting benches.
This new benchrest range will function as a separate range and operate independently from the existing range. This means when we have a competitive event at one range the other range could still be open for members to use. In addition, we expect we can get an approximate 50% increase in capacity out to 100 yards. We find the greatest % of people really don’t shoot that much past 100 yards. By adding more 100-yard shooting positions we can help alleviate some of the congestion on our most heavily used range.
Except for scheduled matches and times that are reserved for specific uses such as the military [Guard and Reserves] and the OKCPD [Sniper Team] training to accomplish their Homeland Security commitment, the range is open to all for independent free style use for members and guests.
The Benchrest Range distances include 50 yds, 100 yds, 200 yds, and 300 yds.
All scheduled matches are "open matches". Be sure to check the Club Calendar for times. Rules for use of the range are posted at the range; be sure to review them.
NOTE: The Benchrest Range has posted a slug-only rule for shotguns! If you want to pattern your shotgun, there are facilities available at the Shotgun Range!
