NSSA skeet rules   NSCA sporting rules  GPGC shotgun range rules


Skeet shoots are held monthly on the first or second Sunday of each month.  Check the latest newsletter or calendar for program and times.

Sporting clays and 5-stand shoots are occasionally held on the third Sunday of each month.


Thursday evenings beginning March 22, 2018 for the next 6-8 weeks,  approx. 5:30 pm till dark  - Bill Schweitzer, along with several more skeet shooters will be sponsoring a beginners skeet shoot.

This is primarily to help new shooters learn basics and gain a comfort level with the sport.  There is no charge for the shoot except the normal range fees. It is open to members, non-members, guests, and shooters of all ages.

Bring your shotgun  and the appropriate ammunition (2 boxes).  Any gauge shotgun will work. The ammo best suited is #9 or #8 shot, but 7 Ĺ will be okay.  We  have several youth size 20 gauge semi-auto shotguns for use if you need one.  You will need earplugs, glasses and a shooting bag or large pockets.

After 6 or 8 weeks of shooting you should become a fairly competent shooter and then with more practice you can take your ability to whatever level you want.  We teach shooting safety and stress enjoyment.  This is a social sport that should be fun. Come on out for an evening and try it out.  For the first evening or two we try to work one on one with the raw beginners, then try to place shooters in groups of similar abilities and work with you as we see a need.

No one learns to shoot a shotgun easily without a little help.  If you are not hitting a bird and canít tell if you are in front, behind or above the bird, an experienced shooter standing behind you while you shoot can tell you where you are shooting and what to do to correct whatever needs adjustment.

Drop me an email or give me a call if you have questions.
