The new Action Shooting Woods and 400 YD Ranges are now open to MVSA members. These are "restricted access" for those who want to shoot at a longer range than the existing Rifle Range, may be interested in competing in Sniper and/or Multi-Gun matches, and are willing to qualify for an access key by going through a brief rules, safety, and shooting orientation process.
There are 4 Ranges: Ranges 1 and 2 are in the small ravines surrounded by woods. Ranges 3 and 4 are the large Bay and the adjacent 400 YD Range. This area is primarily a Competition and Training area. We have been conducting Multi-Gun Matches back here for several years now. But it is finally developed enough to open it for provisional use by the membership.
Access to this area is controlled by a locked chain across the entrance road just North of the Conex Storage Container. The Board has decided that only approved shooters should be given keys to this area.
New Range Orientations: Members will need to complete a special orientation and review process to gain regular access to the new ranges. You will need to bring your rifle, ammo, and eye and ear protection and be prepared to shoot. In addition to the explanation of the Range Rules and proper use of these ranges you will be required to demonstrate safe gun handling and distance shooting skills.
