The most recent range Safety Operating Procedure rules have been updated and are posted on the range rules page, all members and guests are encouraged to review them.


**Many Range Improvements made possible from NRA Grants** 

200  Yard Range Update: 8/9/2018

Last week a severe wind storm damaged one of the awning supports and then last night another wind storm further damaged the upright. It has been examined and determined to be a potential hazard if additional winds occur especially if shooters are underneath. So the two covers supported by the damaged pole are being removed pending the necessary repair to the upright. The club is trying to get this resolved under warranty and is working with AZG&F to that end, at this time we do not have an estimated date of repair. The 200 yard range will remain open just uncovered for a while, but safety was determined to be a concern if the covers were left up. Kevin Ward

Please ONLY use pistol or .22 caliber on the plate rack!  No .223, rifle or magnum caliber rounds.  NO SHOTGUNS!   Please shoot no closer than 15 yards (the tables) any closer can be dangerous due to “splash back.”  Please if you see someone abusing the equipment or being unsafe say something and report it to the Rangemaster.

Please Sign In: Please remember to sign in when using the 50 and 200 yard rifle / pistol ranges.  There is a clipboard on the RSO shed, and in the clubhouse for trap and skeet shooters.  Our funding depends on showing park usage. 

Procedure Notice: The 200 yard range will be open to the public during public hours when there is a Range Safety Officer controlling range operations. Members can use either the 50 or 200 yard range.
