Private Bays

28 bays, ranging to 100 yards. We never run out of places for you to shoot. All bays have shade, table and target stands. Cost for a standard bay is FREE. For bays with steel targets, tactical stages, and electronic clay throwers, join (low cost) or pay a nominal use fee.


Public Hours


We are open to the public on Tuesday 3pm-7pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 4pm.

We will be closed to the public May 6th and 7th due to an event.

Pro Shop

Need ammo, eye protection, ear protection, or some other shooting need? Our well stocked pro-shop has what you need for an enjoyable shooting outing. Even cold (or hot) drinks and snacks.


Fun, Friendly, Not Hovering

Our staff are experts at two things… guns and being friendly. If you need help, they will help. If you want to just shoot, they will leave you alone. Their primary mission is to keep everybody safe, and to then make sure you have a great trip to the range.
