Tin Can Alley is back! We are once again taking aim at soda cans. Join the R&P Community Feb. 10th @ 10 AM for a friendly competitive shoot. $10 fee to help cover supplies. Members and member guests only.

We will be shooting in the indoor range with handguns only. Optics are okay.

Hope to see you there!

GOAL's Ladies Range Day - November 3rd @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

~20 ladies came to learn about firearm safety and have some fun! Jon Green from GOAL gave a stellar LTC/FID course that even engrossed our generous volunteers. After a lunch break, it was out to the ranges to try shooting handguns, shotguns, and rifles. Everyone had a blast, especially the students:

"The day exceeded my expectations. I’m still telling friends about it"

"The hands on in the afternoon made it a very special experience - very well done"

"I think you [all] did a great job!"

We are so happy about the success of this class and supporting potential new shooters! We are planning to have 1-2 more of these events next year. Keep an eye out!

Appleseed-modeled Rifle Marksmanship Class - November 10th @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm

It was wet and windy, but well worth it! Nine students braved the weather to learn the fundamentals of rifle marksmanship; knowledge that is all too rare these days. Huge thanks to Dan and Patrick, who volunteered their time and expertise to share these historically and culturally significant skills!

We do not take pleasure in suspending our members from our ranges, but it is critical that the rules be followed! Deviating, even slightly, from the range rules puts yourself, your fellow members/guests, our community, and our club in general at risk. If you see someone breaking the rules or engaging in unsafe activities, contact us here ASAP. If you feel it is safe to do so, please politely identify the unsafe activity to the person. If you do not feel safe to do so or they refuse to correct the unsafe behavior; pack up your firearm and leave! Do not pick up your shell casings or take down your targets, transport yourself and your firearm in the safest way possible! Once in a safe location, contact us immediately here!
