Reservations and Information

No fees are required. Ammunition, firearms, or targets are not provided.
Reservation time slots are 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM. Reservations will be honored for no more than 10 minutes into the time slot. Walk-in shooters may be accommodated as space becomes available.

That's funny, I called this morning and left a voicemail and heard nothing. Sent an email and 5 minutes later had my spot reserved.

I'll be there Saturday at 10am!
