NO we do not.



3. Does the range sell ammo?

In most cases NO the only caveat to that is that we do sell ammo for shotgun shooting and that is done on the same timeframe that the trap and skeet are out there on Wednesday evenings and Sunday's. Also there are some other competitions and activities that ammo is sold at.

Yes we do have a guest policy. You can bring one guest, one time or one individual per time. You cannot bring a quest multiple times. If you want to bring two different guest at two different times to introduce them to the range that's fine. If you have immediate family members that are traveling in from out of town and you want to bring them out to the range just to have a fun day, we are fine with that as long as it doesn't occur more than once a year.
