Range Facilities

Overview

This facility is primarily managed by the range users themselves. It is free to use, but you are expected to help out. This means picking up your brass and trash when you are done shooting, and reporting acts of vandalism when you see them.

The range is frequently patrolled by the Summit County Sheriff's Department. Violation of the Rules and Regulations can result in serious fines and/or revocation of range privileges.

Aerial View

The range facility consists of three separate ranges:

  • Ambidextrous shooting bench50 Yard Pistol/Rimfire Range: 3-5 shooting benches are available.
  • 100 Yard Rifle Range: 4-7 shooting benches are available.
  • Shotgun/Trap Range: The user must provide their own clay throwing equipment and clay targets. There is no ac power at the range.

Key Range Rules and Regulations

Please see the complete Rules and Regulations page before visiting the range. You can also download and printout the two-page range brochure (PDF). Some of the key rules for this facility include:

  1. Range BrochurePaper or Commercial Reusable Stationary Targets Only. This means that targets such as glass, cans, bottles, tv's, computers, bouncing reactionary targets, and homemade gongs are not allowed. If using a spinning/rotating gong, please make sure it is designed for the cartridge you are using.
  2. Clay Targets Are Only Allowed on the Shotgun/Trap Range: This means that you cannot place clay targets out on the 50-Yard and 100-Yard ranges for pistol/rifle practice.
  3. High Power Rifles Allowed on Rifle Range Only: You may not shoot your high power rifle on the 50-Yard pistol range or on the Shotgun/Trap range. This includes 0.223 Rem and 5.56mm cartridges.
  4. Shotguns Are Only Allowed on the Shotgun/Trap Range: The only exception to this rule is for shotguns firing sabot/slug shells. Then the 100-Yard rifle range must be used.

Again, please see the Rules and Regulations page before visiting the range.

Sanitary Facilities

There is a porta-potty located at the west end of the parking thanks to generous support from the Friends of the NRA. However, there is no running water or electricity. Please take note before visiting the range.

Range Surface

The ground beneath the range is compacted recycled asphalt. Driving a target stand into the ground is not advised as it may damage the surface. Self-supporting stands with sandbags are one useful method of creating a target stand. Try making a 2x4 stand and drill holes in the stand for your stake-equipped targets.

There are a number of target stand bases available. These are concrete-filled tires with a pair of 1.5" PVC pipes set in the concrete. There may be target frames pre-built for you at the range. To be safe, you can bring your own. See the Target Frame page for information on building your own frame before coming to the range.

Range Supervision

The range is currently operated in a user-managed mode. That means that the first person to arrive is the acting Range Officer. This person delegates this task to another before leaving.

During special events or times of heavy range use, there may be uniformed, NRA-Certified Range Safety Officers running a range. Please listen to their instructions and follow all commands for the safety of all range users.
