Range Rules and Safety

  • Jackson Hole Gun Club USPSA

To ensure a fun and safe day at the Jackson Hole Gun Range, a few reminders:

Before beginning any activity, whether on the rifle, archery, pistol or shotgun bay please sign in at the range office. The clipboard is located in the target closet on the door.

Please do not fire magnum ammunition or .454 Casull at any of the steel targets in the pistol bay, or .50 caliber at the steel targets on the rifle bay. Doing so damages the targets and makes them unavailable for use.

Except for steel target at 200 yards and further, only shoot at targets that YOU put up!
