Check with range officer for exact timesAdditional Info:
General: The range is quite an operation since we do everything ourselves including back-stop repair, clean-up, painting, target carrier repair,cleaning the lead out of the trap, etc. New members should understand they will be expected to volunteer for work parties. The backstop is sloping steel armor plate and can withstand a serious hit, however, we do not allow magnums or anything over a .22 rifle because of noise. 99% of the people who shoot on our range are serious shooters and exceptional gun handlers. We have more than a few people who hold a Distinguished Pistol Badge, are members of The President's 100, are State Champions, or hold other important awards.
As far as I know we have the only PRIVATE range in the Chicago area except for law enforcement. Because of the volume of shooting and for safety reasons eye and ear protection are mandatory. Breathing protection is highly recommended. SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT. Violation of safety rules can result in expulsion. The club was formed in 1950 and the last Charter Member was "Billy" Goldstein who is now deceased. Since 1950 we have never had an accident.
No one may shoot before 5:00 p.m.
Shooting is normally completed by 9:30 p.m. except matches.
Firearms must be unloaded and encased behind the firing line.
