Open Range Day is the second Sunday of each month from 1:30-3:30pm. (Weather permitting, December - February may be canceled in cold weather, or heavy rain).

The range affords a 10-position, covered, concrete firing line with shooting benches. Firearms may be fired at distances varying from 7 yards to 100 yards by moving the target holders. Shooters need to provide their own targets and staplers. No exploding, tracer or any other incendiary ammunition or target or situations that might cause a fire are allowed.
