Pick up any and all trash. There are trash cans and a dumpster at the entrance cabin.
Pick up your brass, even if your not taking it with you! Separate buckets for either spent steel cases or brass cases are made available.
Do not shoot at anything except paper targets or proper steel targets designed to be used as a target. No shooting at "no shoot" props, barrels, barricades, automobile props, cans, bottles, electronics, garbage, etc. If your using your own targets inform and show them to the RO.
SHC has over 15 ranges or designated spaces that may (or may not) be open and available for use during public open range. These ranges include:
* The 100/300/and pistol bays must be closed during use of 1000yd range.
The 300 Yard Range and Pistol Bays:
This range is normally staged with a 100yd firing line to enable pistol/PCC shooting on the left and primarily carbine / rifle to the right. Occasionally the range will be set up to shoot 200 yards or more (up to 450yds). Both steel targets and paper target stands with backers are available for use during Open Range events. The 5 pistol bays are situated perpendicular and to the right of the 300. No pistol bays in front of (to the north of) the adjacent perpendicular 300 range firing line may be utilized. Speak to a staff member to see if a desired pistol bay is available for use during public Open Range events. Full auto machine guns and large caliber firearms ARE allowed with the knowledge and permission of the active RSO or Range Master. Absolutely no rounds with penetrating bullets.
700 Yard Precision Range:
There are 3 shooting bays on the 700 range: The main range, a roof-top shooter bay, and off-vehicle shooter bay. Zeroing: For safety reasons, shooters are not able to establish a 100yd rifle zero on the 700yd range. Ask a staff member where a 100 zero has been staged on the property for the event. (Typically at the 300 range or at the Wellhead range) Shooters on the 700 should have an accurate BDC reticle or a scope with an external turret capable of dialing elevation. Iron sites or red dot optics are ONLY permitted on the 700 with express SHC RO knowledge, permission and supervision. NO FULL AUTO guns, STEEL CORE or TRACER rounds are allowed. The 700-yard range has various props used in PRS style matches that are available for shooters to train with. All distances on the main 700 range will be provided. Please do not intentionally shoot target racks/bolts / or T-Posts.
The main 700 range has various steel targets from 200 yards about every 50 feet out to 700 yards. Absolutely NO shooting short of 200yds or at standing water or streams. There is typically a "technical" ("enemy" pickup truck prop with surrounding steel targets) at set known distance on the main 700 range. The truck is not intended to be a target in and of itself -- please don't shoot it deliberately.
The Rogers Range:
The Rogers Range is a 4 bay reactive pneumatic driven target house designed for advance pistol and PCC training. The primary use of the Rodgers Range is SWAT law enforcement training, however the range may be available for public use during special day and night time events for skill development and entertainment. See the SHC Rogers Range web page for more information.
100 Yard Range:
SHC maintains a 100 yd range with covered shooting position and tables to shoot from. This range also has lights and electric service. While not typically utilized during public range dates, it may be open during bad weather or if the 300 is leased for a private event. It is located past he camping area and dining pavilion, right through the safety gates and then to the left (at Blueberry Hill) where the 300 road splits off to the right.
1000 Yard Range
Located just past the 700 yard range bays, the 1000 yard shooting platform and bay provides precision shooters with steel targets from out to 1000 yards. Operation of this range is only during special dates and times, as it requires SHC to close all pistol bays, the 100yd and 300yd ranges. An RO must be present during 1000 yd range use. See the 700 yard range above for rules that also may pertain to shooting at the 1000 yard bay.
Safety is our first priority!
