September 2017 Outdoor Range Update

First a big thank you to Tim, Don, Alan, and Mike for all the help with the maintenance during the summer months on the outdoor range.

2nd Annual Steel Crush family shoot (.22 LR ) went very well and we had a larger turnout. Thanks to Alan Arena and all the RSO’s, the contest was a big success.

ODPR updates completed which include additional protection at the end of the range to provide additional containment and prevent any possible issues with errant rounds. (Thanks to Brad and his team).

New screens installed on the ODPR building interior windows to prevent birds from perching on the ledges.

Replaced steel bars and installed new targets inside tractor tires at the 75 yard mark.

Assembled and installed new target stands for at the 50 yard mark.

Several new circular 8 and 10 inch steel plates installed at the 100 yard mark to provide greater challenges.

Please check website for range closings because of Police department training and ASC training sessions.

Recruiting to add to the outdoor team to provide maintenance, modifications or do outdoor range orientation.

Firearms should be transported from your car to the shooting stations unloaded and with the action open. Cases or shooting bags are preferable.

A “Clear” command MUST be issued to all members shooting on the pistol and rifle bay’s  BEFORE attempting to unlock the yellow gate. Be sure to stand behind the yellow line.

Ground shooting at any targets is not allowed on the outdoor range.
