*The Range Request system is for arranging to reserve the exclusive use of a certain area of the Range for special events, Association shooting events, Concealed Carry Classes or Police Training.  Members wishing to visit the Range and shoot as individuals or with family and friends do not need to schedule their visit and Range use. Range reservations can only be reserved by a current Lodge Member.
