Our Ranges

CF&GA maintains four shooting ranges at our club headquarters on Robertson Road in Duncan. Included are three outdoor ranges; a covered 100 / 200 yard rifle range, a covered 50 yard handgun range and smallbore (.22 LR caliber) as well as a single station trap range.  Additionally, a six position heated 20 yard indoor range. Please see the SPECIFIC RANGE RULES below to identify what types of guns and ammunition may be used at each individual range.

Safety Is YOUR Responsibility

The primary purpose of the ranges is to promote marksmanship among our members.  Shooters of diverse backgrounds must shoot safely together, sometimes without the benefit of a “formal” Range Officer present.  As you have been given the privilege of using the CF&GA ranges, it is your responsibility to understand and practice the CF&GA property and range use policies.

BE SURE ALL PROJECTILES ON THE 50  AND 100/200  RANGES ARE DIRECTED INTO THE BACKSTOP. AT NO TIME SHALL A PROJECTILE HIT THE GROUND BEFORE THE BACKSTOP.
