Unless you're talking about skeet don't get too excited about shooting your shotgun. You're only allowed one or two patterning shots at 50 yards. The pistol and rifle ranges are off limits

Plenty of people practice with slugs on the rifle range and people look the other way. The main problem is people using shot to tear up the target hanging bulletin boards

I'm a member as well. If it wasn't so far away, I would love it.

There are 50/200/100 yard berms on the rifle range, and 50/25/15 yard berms on the pistol range.

The pistol/rifle ranges, IME don't see very much use, except on Saturdays and Sundays leading up to hunting seasons.


Also, someone else mentioned not having any place to shoot your shotgun. As long as no one else is using the pistol range, the 50yd pistol berm has a section of target holder designated as shotgun targets. There are distance markers from 0-50 feet leading up to the berm, so you can pattern your shotgun at various distances. If anyone else is shooting on the pistol range, though, the closest you can shoot is 50yards.

Additionally, if no one else is using the pistol range, and/or you all go downrange, I've never had a problem shooting in front of the official firing line (like if I wanted to practice drawing and shooting at 7 yards).

If you're shooting slugs, you can use the rifle range, and have your pick of 50/100/200 yard targets.


IMO, the only things NLRG are missing is some action pits and a bar.
