Promoting the safe enjoyment of shooting sports.
The range safety improvements have been completed so the rifle and pistol/rim fire ranges are again open for use beginning Friday, October 25, 2013. Over 140 truck loads of dirt were dumped on the pistol range and bull dozed to heighten the rear and side berms. This makes for a much safer use of both ranges. A low berm was added to the pistol range about 28 yards out to cut down on the ricochets when using the 10 yard targets. Additional target ground anchors will be added at various ranges when the ground softens to allow pounding in the anchors. Thanks for your patience during the range closings while the improvements were made.
M1 For Vets Rifle Presentation: Veteran's Day program, November 12, 2013 at Owensville High School. This will be a presentation of 15 rifles to 15 members of a Missouri National Guard unit that were wounded in the same battle. Please see the Match Results page to read the article about the presentation. Special thanks to the Gasconade County Republican for permission to reprint their article and for their continuing coverage of the M1 for Vets program. Try to attend the presentation if you can.
The rifle range will be closed from approximately noon until 4:00pm on November 12, 2013 to accommodate the M1 for Vets match that follows the presentation.
