I did a search and only came up with about 2 or 3 hits and though I'd just ask.

Does anyone have the Good, Bad and the Ugly on this place.

they are soooo close to my home and think I'd like to join there... just want to see if anyone is/has been there.

Madmarc0 from here is also a member. I think he said the range goes out to 200 yards. Him and the guys from Zero Hour usually shoot there on Sundays, including full auto stuff.

I'm a member also. Saturday mornings are a good time to go as they usually have a work party and there are a good number of members.

The rifle range is 300 yards, the shorter range is 100 yards, and the plinking/combat range has steel targets at various distances. The plinking and rifle ranges have indoor shooting positions that are (I think) heated. There is also an indoor 25 yard range.

I just joined this club, so far I have found the people to be friendly. The 300yrd range has paper and steel which is fun. You shoot out of a house so you stay warm and dry. The outdoor pistol is the same and has alot of steel to shoot at.

I didn't notice this anywhere on the website so figured i would ask here before emailing the club. How much is it to join for the first year? With yearly dues, initiation fees and all of that combined? Been thinking of joining Hanson but this seems like a great club with some nicer features. thanks in advance

The first meeting of the year is tomorrow night. If I can get to it, I'll ask about that. I *think* it's $205.00 for the first year, with $50.00 refunded if you attend a number of work parties. I think that requirement is only 4 hours, but again I'm not sure.

Here is the first year dues break down

Initiation Fee $84.00
Dues $105.00
Work Party $50.00

The Work Party fee is refundable if you attend a work party. If you do that, the first year is $189.00. If you don't, the fee is $239.00 for the first year. You pay that amount up front, of course.

As a new member, I can tell you I am enjoying it. Everyone I have met so far has been great and the ranges are very nice.

They have the 50 yd range with a TON of steel/reactive targets.

Plus I think they have others that you can set up closer as well.

Is it for centerfire rifles?

The steel is set up on the "Reactive Pistol Range"


"Reactive metal targets are set up from 15 feet to 50 feet. Pistols up to .45 caliber and shotguns with shot (no slugs) are allowed on this range. NO BOTTLENECK CARTRIDGES ARE TO BE USED ON THIS RANGE EVEN IF SHOT FROM A PISTOL."

HAHA... Thats cause of me, I think, anyways... And the same restriction on the indoor range... Though I never actually did it, I told a few of the guys on the Executive Board I was gonna shoot my FN FiveseveN downstairs. They didn't think it was such a good idea. :)

The pictures clearly show steel targets on the 100Y rifle range. Is the steel only at 100Y or can it be shot closer?

More steel is going in as part of an ongoing upgrade. This was mentioned at the January meeting. I can't remember the details, but I think there is going to be some targets on the 200 and 300 yard lines and maybe at the 50 yard line on the 100 yard range.

If I get to the meeting tomorrow night, I'll try to remember to ask.

I think I remember seeing a gong located at 50 yard on the 100yard range last time I was there.

You could always being your own steel and step it up a a safe distance.

The problem is the steel get beat up real fast at close range with a rifle
