Range Improvements beginning end of June 2020

Range Improvements:
Safety Concerns have arose on (Rifle) Range # 5, especially 75 yard berm. Plans are to remove the 75 yard berm, utilize the dirt to raise and widen the 50 and 100 yard berms. NSC has seen increased range usage that Range # 4 (pistol) and 25 yard berm on Range # 3 will also receive face lifts.
This work is seriously needed to improve safety for our club and retain bullets inside the faces of berms and not flying off club grounds. Its every member and guest obligation to ensure every bullet fired will land inside the berm faces.

The steel plates and steel frames have been shot with un-approved ammo leaving large holes in the target frames. These new targets have been approved for members enjoyment and if rules are NOT followed the Steel Plates will be removed. Please read NSC range rules below on shooting the steel plates below.
