Only shotgun shooting is allowed at our facility. We have instructors available by appointment. Their phone numbers are listed below. Everything you need to shoot can be purchased or rented at the pro shop. Eye and ear protection are mandatory.

We do not take reservations except for corporate or group outings.


Beginner Shooting Clinics Saturdays At 3:00 PM

Due to a shortage of employees, our

"Beginner Shooting Clinics" are suspended until we are back to full staff.

 That being said, all of our public fields are staffed with a range safety officer and are

available for first time shooters.

Join us for an all inclusive beginner shooting clinic at 3:00PM on Saturdays. The price per person is $21.95 plus tax. This includes everything you need to shoot one round of 25 targets with a group instructor. Children ten and older are welcome but they must be able to hold up a gun safely. Plan on it lasting one and a half to three hours depending on the size of the group. You must be on time to participate.

You can still shoot at the range if you are late. We have employees running the ranges to keep you safe and answer your questions. The clinic is very helpful but not required. We have complete beginners shoot every day.

Schedule an all inclusive corporate outing. Great for employee outings, entertaining customers, or wedding parties. These are done by reservation on a reserved field with an experienced shooting instructor. Perfect for complete beginners or experienced shooters. The costs are $85.00 per field with an instructor (one for each group of 10 shooters) and $48.00 per shooter for up to 50 targets per shooter or two hours, whichever comes first.
