Club members put a lot of time and money into having a safe shooting range.

Some people don't respect that.  Ecoblocks in the falling plate bays have been damaged by gun fire:

Not only is this destructive, it's dangerous.  Shooting steel plates that are positioned to deflect bullets away from shooters is one thing; shooting a vertical wall of concrete is another thing. 

Both bays have this problem:

This may not be deliberate targeting of the ecoblocks, but a result of placing portable target stands in the falling plate bays.  This is against range rules; the only targets allowed in the falling plate bays are the falling plates themselves.

If you see anyone using portable target stands in the falling plate bays, please ask them to remove them.  If they decline to do so, please let the club leaders know by calling (541) 203-0124.  Note that this is a MESSAGE phone only, please leave a message and someone will get back to you.  An e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you for your cooperation.
