News on the progress of the new range and an upcoming intro to shotgun class

Plans continue to move forward toward opening our new shooting range near Dave’s Creek (approx mile 39 Sterling Hwy). The club hopes to receive an easement from the State for our road access this fall and begin work before freeze up.  If plans stay on track, we may be able to move to the new range in 2023!  Our current range on Bean Creek Rd will continue to operate until the new range is open.  Due to legal matters etc, the new range is not to be used and is closed. Please do not shoot there and possibly jeopardize our progress. 

Thank you to everyone who has been working hard to open the new range.

The club will be offering an “Introduction to Shot gunning” class on September 24th.  For more info, please contact Laura Johnson at 907-205-0801 or ljohnsonak@gmail.com.

If you are interested in becoming more involved with the club, please email me at ljohnsonak@gamil.com.

Have a great fall filled with lots of gun power,

Laura Johnson, President

Range Progress

Our club just received another HUGE grant from the Friends of the NRA for $57,000!!!  This will be our 3rd grant from the FNRA for our new shooting facility in Cooper Landing near Dave’s Creek.  The FNRA has donated $187,500 to this amazing new range.

We are hoping to open the new range in the Fall of 2021

If you want to support the FNRA please go online or text 907-299-7402 to purchase a Boat Load of Guns Raffle ticket!  We were unable to host a FNRA event this year at Princess, but it would still be awesome to support them.

Huge thank you to everyone who has supported this amazing new range.

With that being said work will continue now this fall.  One issue is that there are people shooting at the new range and it is not ready.  We do not want to jeopardize safety nor our dealings with the agencies still involved. We ask that people refrain from trying to shoot at the new range. Thanks your Range-manager.

Drone footage of the new range.

Janessa Anderson of Adventure Atlas has done a great job on putting together video for our range and fundraising. Attached is a lower quality version for use on our this website (we have limited upload space) But it is still great. Thanks to her talents, hard work this, footage and her still pictures, our continuing efforts to complete the new range have been much more successful. So if you might be in need of her type of artistic photography what she charges is quite reasonable for the great quality she provides. Thanks, Webmaster.

More range work

Attached are a couple of photos of the concept plan and where we are now.  We are making progress and moving forward. Be looking for some video drone footage (still working on formatting) and information about our upcoming fund raiser in May.

The plan

It is really taking shape.

Yes it is a little cold but the current range is great and quite accessible.  We were shooting last Friday and only -1 degree.
