SPECIAL SHOOTING PROGRAMS

Air Gun Programs

We’re proud of our 24/7 air gun range and our programs that introduce air gun shooting to the pubic — adults and children, age 9 and older.

We use .177 CAL pellets. Rifles must have iron sights only, and should be adjustable. If you do not have a match quality air rifle, you can use one of the club’s excellent Kimber rifles that were purchased with a grant from the NRA Foundation.

Prior to Covid, both our adult and youth programs ran on Saturdays, January through mid-April.

We look forward to reinstating the programs when it is safe to do so.
