The new plinking range is OPEN, the old one is permanently CLOSED
The new range is located to the east of the benchrest range and can be accessed from a new road located on the south end of the benchrest parking lot.
The new range is designed to be more user friendly especially for a beginner. We have much larger steel plates at much closer distances as well as smaller plates at greater distances. In addition, we added two more dueling trees for some competition with your friends or family if you wish. Because over the years we found the falling plates were extremely difficult to maintain we choose to install static plates on the new range. The plates will wiggle and ring, but they don’t fall which we believe will eliminate the maintenance issue. We encourage all members to please go look at the newest addition to our facility.
As a reminder the range is for handgun cartridges ONLY. This means firearms chambered in cartridges such as 9mm, 38 special, 45 ACP, 44 magnum, 45 colt, 22 rimfire are permitted. Bottleneck or rifle cartridges such as .223 or 7.62x39 are NOT safe to use at these distances, will destroy the targets, and are absolutely not permitted.
If you have any questions about if you may shoot a particular cartridge please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
