Pipeline Construction Project June 2020

Teton County commissioners have commissioned a water pipeline project, and have gained permission from the USFS to perform the project in areas beside and on our shooting range. This in turn requires us to close down portions of the JH Gun Club for portions of June 2020.

Please be certain to check the JHGC calendar prior to driving to the range!


Generally, we will have all bays open on weekends, however various sides of the range will be closed for much of the month. Typically, the South Side (Shotgun, archery, special use & pistol bays) will be considered separate from the North side. (Rifle bay) On some days, both will be closed and on some days, only one.

In case signs blow down, please continue to use the uncommon good sense that our membership is known for, and put safety as a top priority, namely “Always keep guns pointed in a safe direction.” If you see workers downrange – don’t use that side of the range!

Greetings, we will resume IDPA, SCSA and USPSA matches starting May 20, 2020 with IDPA! We will operate under the JHGC Covid protocols. MASKS WILL BE MANDATORY!

Let’s get shooting!

See our calendar for dates, and remember to check frequently, things sometimes change!

JHGC ReOpening May, 2020

The JHGC Reopened to the public on May 16, 2020.

Mask restrictions are in place, non-household members
must not be within a social distance of 10 feet unless masked and 6 feet if masked.

The JHGC Reopened to members only on May 2, 2020.

On 4-30-20, the JHGC board of directors took a vote, and the majority of the board voted on

the following Reopening Protocol:

Range Reopening Protocol

Jackson Hole Gun Club


Our goal is to reopen the Jackson Hole Gun Club to Members and non-Members as soon as allowed by Federal, County, and State Orders in a manner as safe and convenient as we can make it for users and Gun Club Staff.

We recognize this will not be business as usual for the foreseeable future because of the expected continuing risk of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Our reopening plan is based on the best advice we can obtain on effective infection control for those using the range and Gun Club staff.

We have reviewed CDC guidelines and other Federal, State and County Orders and consulted with Infectious Disease Medical Experts for the prevention of Covid-19 infections.


  1. If you are unwell, particularly with a fever, or are in a high-risk group, please stay home.
  2. The risk of community transmission of the virus is high every time you leave your home. This protocol is designed to mitigate but certainly not reduce to zero that risk.  Your decision to use the public spaces of the Jackson Hole Gun Club is yours alone and you are assuming all risks.    
  3. To maintain the six feet of separation recommended by the CDC, every other bench on the rifle deck will be closed. We ask that users of the .22 range and the pistol range maintain six feet of separation from other users at all times.  Persons living in the same household can shoot together, but this makes it more difficult to maintain six feet of separation from other shooters.  Same household groups will be limited to four.  If this does not provide six feet of separation from other users at any time, group size will be reduced to two.
  4. The Range Safety Officer will remain in his command post with few exceptions. The Range Safety Officer’s decisions to order more separation between users are final.
  5. Members are asked to bring their own hand sanitizer for use before and after touching pens, staplers and target frames.
  6. 6. Sanitize benches by wiping down with sanitizing solution before and after use or by replacing the cover.
  7. All range users must wear face masks at all times while on Jackson Hole Gun Club property unless more than ten feet from other users.

Stay Safe.

Stay Healthy.

Or Stay Home


The JHGC opened on May 2, 2020 to members only and on May 16 to the public.


Q. These rules are different than national, state and county orders. Why?
A. A majority of JHGC board members voted this way.
Q. Will the JHGC supply masks?
A. No, add one to your range bag.
Q. Will the JHGC supply sanitizer?
A. No, add some to your range bag.
Q. What about JHSE?
A. Because they have larger groups, we have moved their operations to the 22 bay to create separation from other members. They contacted County Health and are approved to operate.
Q. How long will this be in effect?
A. The government will decide: https://covid19.wyo.gov

#theresponse to covid-19

JH Gun Club Shooting Range Closed Due to Covid-19 Response

Due to the government response to the COVID-19 scare, the JH Gun Club shooting range will be closed until April 30, 2020 by majority vote of the board. Following is an update from the JHGC President:

3-31-2020 Shooting Range Closed Update:

“We took the Homeland Security memo into consideration and will still need to follow the Governor’s recommendation for non-essential businesses to remain closed until the 17th.Shooting Range Closed #theresponse to covid-19
… a few of the main points on why we are following the Governor’s timeline in regards to the range closure:
In short, the [DHS] memo is advisory. The section about ranges being open pertains to law enforcement, public safety, and first responders, not recreational, commercial business or club members. Under the federal memo opening the range for discretionary use is not advised, and that use is not within the scope of the Law Enforcement, Public Safety and Other First Responders category in the federal memo.
We do not believe that we have any choice but to follow the state order, as defined by the [Wyoming] Game & Fish, as the federal memo describes the state as the decision-making authority.”

The Herb Hazen Memorial Accuracy Challenge

Herb Hazen Memorial Accuracy Challenge

Herb Hazen Memorial Accuracy Challenge

You Can’t Miss Fast Enough To Win!

A special pistol competition will be held at Jackson Hole Gun Club on (DATE TBA – we are sorry, but the response to the Covid-19 panic makes it worth delaying this match for a time). The pistol completion will be a modified IDPA-style event, with a bias towards accuracy over speed.

Please watch this space for more information, and check back often.

So what is it?

This match is an IDPA-style, pistol-only competition consisting of a number of stages, divided between short stages, referred to as “speed shoots” and longer stages, referred to as “field courses”.

Scoring has been modified to reward accuracy over speed, with greater penalties (more time added) for less accurate shot placement.
