OUTDOOR RIFLE RANGE

Come practice your marksmanship


The outdoor rifle range offers target placement from 25 yards out to 200 yards with the backstop at approximately 250 yards.

Targets may be placed at the backstop but may not be placed on the hill above ground level.

Covered shooting benches provide a stable rest for precision shooting or sighting in your rifle. They are big enough to keep extra magazines, tools or a notebook close at hand.

The closer target placements provide an opportunity to work on your pistol marksmanship.

Targets may be stapled or taped to 4′ x 8′ sheets of corrugated plastic sign board placed at increasing distance down range. You may also bring your own target holders but please set them up so the bullet path is parallel to the ground to avoid ricochets.

 

 

NOTE: Memberships include access to the outdoor pistol and rifle range. Access to the indoor range and shotgun range are NOT included in a Kootenai Valley Sportsman Association membership.

Please Be considerate of our neighbors at the range
