On Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday mornings we shoot Trap and Skeet, except the third Sunday of the month; please refer to the club calendar to confirm starting times. Skeet is usually the first game to be shot, followed by Trap. To ensure proper personnel are on hand to guide them, those without experience in Trap/Skeet are welcome by appointment only.

New shooters will shoot after the morning rounds, usually just after noon. Appointments can be made through Shotgun Range Manager Bob Mullin at rangemanager@nrgsc.org.

One Sunday per month, usually the third, we shoot 5-stand.  Breakdown follows the shoot.  If you can, please assist in setup and breakdown. Check the calendar to confirm shooting days & time. The charge for each 25 clay targets is $5. 

Anyone wishing to be on the Trap and Skeet email list can send an email to Bob Mullin, rangemanager@nrgsc.org

Cancellations due to inclement weather will be sent out to the email list by 8:00 AM the morning of the shoot.

  • As long as the shotgun range is not scheduled for other activities — club members are welcome to use the shotgun range. However, they must provide their own equipment and clay targets, no sign-in or range fee is required.
  • All shooters are expected to retrieve their spent hulls and any other refuse and dispose in the trash containers.
  • There is a patterning station located north of the high house. Shooters may place a paper or cardboard target (24X36 recommended) on the metal frame. Always remove and dispose of used target materials.

*by appointment. This is to ensure we have the appropriate personnel on hand to guide new & beginning shooters.  New shooters make appointments by email with Bob Mullin, Shotgun Range Manager, rangemanager@nrgsc.org
