Target Information

New! Important - Please read before shooting at GSR

It is extremely expensive and takes a lot of work to repair targets which have had holes punched into them due to careless shooting, and due to recent damage to the targets at Golden Spike Range, the linked PDF file should be downloaded and read before shooting in any of our matches. This document will tell you which calibers and bullets may be used on which targets. If, after reading this document, you are still unsure about which targets are available for shooting, PLEASE ASK a range manager before firing.

Don't Forget...

Eye and Ear Protection

Eye protection is ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED on or near the firing line, and this includes spectators. This rule will be strongly enforced. Ear protection, while not required, is strongly recommended.


Safety, of course, is the first and foremost point of attention in the match. We are using real firearms and live ammunition to participate in a sport that we love. With that comes the serious responsibility to pay attention to what you and those around you are doing. Everyone is a range officer, and has the responsibility to see that every shooter conducts themselves in a safe manner. Each range will have their own specific safety rules. Pay attention to, and abide by their rules. The result will be an unending source of shooting fun.
