Range Rules

REMINDER to all members and law enforcement agencies;

1] Eye and hearing protection is required on all users and spectators.

2] The range officer on the pistol range will call for a CEASE FIRE when anyone is exposed in the parking area south of the firing line or on the hill side to the east.

3] Shooting metal targets with center fire ammo at less than 50 yards is inherently dangerous. Targets should be positioned to minimize back splash. Lander Valley Sportsmen’s Association cannot and will not be responsible for accidents.

    If I’m not a member can I still come use the range

      You can visit the range a limited amount with another member. You cannot access the range in general without a membership, as the entrance has a padlock and members have keys. Membership is extremely affordable and well worth the price.
