There's a nice indoor archery range, as well as a large outdoor range with permanent targets in 5-yard increments from 20 to 75 yards. There's a 3D hunting course/trail too.

Far as firearms go:

- No shotguns

- The only rifles allowed on the outdoor shooting range are 22s. No rifle-caliber pistols, and no pistol-caliber rifles. This rule is in effect because of range proximity to farms, etc. Even though the range has a large berm and overhead baffles to keep all lead inside the range, a county waiver was required to allow 22 rifles.

Never seen a rule saying no rifle caliber pistols.
Please show me.

While not written in front of me, they did in fact state this at the last meeting.

mxrider and tattoocrab are right. Except for .22 LR, no pistol-caliber rifles and no rifle-caliber pistols are allowed.

That's interesting...
I've been a member for years and have never heard such a thing.
My rules said the only rifle allowed on the property was .22 rimfire, which would include .22 magnum (I asked at orientation) but I could shoot any pistol.
I know of a handful of AR pistols that have been shot there in the past and probably will be again.

They have a great indoor range for archery, leagues on Tuesday nights all winter long, 3D shoots, a 14 target field archery range and practice range to 80yds.

Wonder if 17HMR is allowed? I'll ask at next meeting.
