On May 8, the SLSC grounds and ranges reopened after a 5-week shutdown. We are still operating under COVID-19 safety guidelines and the current operating rules are posted as you swipe in and at each of the ranges and on the website under the COVID-19 Info page. Most significant is the limit of 10 persons on the range. These restrictions may lesson as we progress to full operation. The board will notify members of any changes as they occur. The board is also looking into rehosting events. Watch the calendar and your email for event announcements.


Rifle Range

The Rifle Range provides Three+ position (prone, bench, kneeling/sitting, and standing/off hand), 8-station, fully-baffled range with target-frames at 25-, 50-, 75-, and 100 yards for paper targets (110-yards for steel matches). Capable of centerfire cartridges up to but not including .50 BMG. Firing-line shed offers shelter to the shooters. An AED is available at this range.

The rifle range is open to prone shooting within the following parameters:

1.  All shooting from sitting and prone must be done utilizing the shooting platforms provided. There are currently  platforms available for each lane. Two will always remain in place unless there are not enough lanes for bench shooters. Please ensure that there are two in place when leaving the range so the next solitary prone shooter won't have to set them up alone.

2.  All shooting done from below 30" will use the platforms. All matches/supervised events will use them UNLESS that event requires a transition from standing to seated or prone as part of the event's course of fire.

The firing line is wheel-chair accessible.
