Have not been there to shoot but I have drove by and stopped there. If I remember correctly they only have trap shooting.

I wonder what they would do if I went and used it as a regular range.

I dont think there is anywhere that you can. It was just a small area to throw up clays.

There was not any place to put up targets and no backstop. And there are signs saying shotgun/trap shooting only

I want either less corruption or more opportunity to participate in it.
