Defiance Fish and Game Association

Indoor Range

Upgrades/Changes:

The steel plating (backstop) was updated as well as the material to absorb the bullets.  You may see small pieces of rubberized material at the end of the range.  The brooms have been replaced by squeegees for moving brass after shoots.  The squeegees will reduce the dust from being moved into the air.  Thanks to a tax-deductible donation, we also have purchased a HEPA filtered vacuum that will allow the dust to be safely removed from the range.

 

Information:

With the change in membership that started in 2015, all annual members become part of the Rifle and Pistol Club with access to the indoor range.  But before a member will be issued a keycard with access to the indoor range they must attend an orientation meeting to become acquainted with the rules, where the switches are that control the lighting, exhaust fans, etc.  Once that orientation has been completed you will be given a keycard that will allow access to the indoor range.

In addition to having a keycard which allows access to the indoor range there is a charge of $5.00 per hour to shoot inside.  This is a minimum charge of $5.00 so even if you are only shooting for 30 minutes it is still $5.00 and an additional $5.00 when your first hour is over.  You will receive more information on this at your orientation.

There are also indoor leagues that you can participate in as well as a ‘Fun’ shoot.  Bullseye Pistol Leagues are shot on Monday evening starting at 6:00 p.m. and Tuesday evenings starting at 6:30 p.m.  This is an eight-week league that allows you to drop your two lowest scores and use your best six-week average.  There is a Wednesday night fun shoot scheduled that runs through March.  Check your calendar for times.

 

Reminder:

The indoor range does NOT allow shotgun shooting, magnum caliber handguns, or any rifle chambered for anything other than .22 short, long, long rifle or approved pistol cartridges.  In the past someone shot a .223 or .556 caliber rifle at the indoor range and caused major damage to the backstop.  Should that happen now the cameras will be checked and the person causing the damage will be expected to pay for the replacement.

 

Here is some additional information on the Wednesday night Fun Shoots.
