The range facility affords a 9-position, covered, concrete firing line with shooting

moving the target holders. Shooters need to plan to provide their own targets and
staplers. No exploding, tracer or any other incendiary ammunition or target devices
are allowed at any time at the Chatuge Gun Club range. No open flames or
situations that might cause a fire are allowed.
The range facilities are available for use by Chatuge Gun Club members during
any daylight hours and is accessible by a key issued upon joining the club at a
regularly scheduled monthly meeting; paying the dues as described in the “Dues
Policies” link on this website; and signing an agreement with the club to understand
and obey ALL range rules as set forth by the Chatuge Gun Club. Membership may
be obtained by attending a regular monthly meeting held on the third Tuesday of
each month at the Senior Center in Hiawassee Georgia at 7 P.M.
The club presents “friendly” competition in various shooting sports almost on a
weekly basis and these competitions are open to anyone wishing to participate as
long as basic range safety rules are followed. Reference the calendar link on this
website for match dates and times. These matches vary and attempt to provide a
forum of entertainment to satisfy almost all types of firearms from muzzle loading to
semi-auto loaders. If you are not familiar with some of the matches listed, please click
on the “Matches” navigation bar for details. Most events are offered at no cost to the
shooter either member or non-member however, in some cases a small fee is
charged to cover the cost of consumables such as targets at trap matches etc.
The Chatuge Gun Club has over 25 Certified NRA Instructors within its
membership. These dedicated Trainers can afford ongoing opportunities for novice
as well as experienced shooters to further their knowledge and skills within the
various shooting disciplines. Our Range Officer as well as any of the Club Officers
can guide you to the particular training you desire.
We also have an Airgun Program during the cooler winter months. We present
“clinics” as well as scored matches for both 10 meter air rifle and air pistol
competition. Click on the “Airgun Program” navigation bar for more details.
Except for days when organized matches are conducted, there is no Range
Officer present. Members must maintain safe range procedures by following range
rules as posted.
