Read More About This Club

Ed McGivern Pistol & Revolver Club outdoor range is located on the East side of the Butte just south of the Law Enforcement Range.  It has a full covered firing line with waist height benches.

It is an NRA Bullseye style range with turning target stands at 25 yards, and fixed target stands at 50 yards. This range is restricted to handguns only.No shotguns or rifles.

All shooting is to be done from behind the benches, while standing on the concrete.
If you are not a good enough shot to keep all of your rounds inside the frames at 25 yards, please use the MRSA 50 yard or 200 yard ranges–damage to the target frames is both expensive and time consuming to repair.

The target stands are steel frames that accept 22 inch x 24 inch backers.  If you are going to use this range, you will probably want to bring your own pieces of 22×24 cardboard, as the backers are normally only provided for matches.  A stapler would be handy to have also.
