Shotgun Patterning Range Hours

At the February Club meeting, the Club voted to allow shotgun patterning only on Sunday morning from 9:30 to 10 am. The shotgun patterning lane is located on the far left side of the gun range, near the pistol shed. The Club’s operating times are limited by a 1984 Special Permit issued by the Town of Walpole. The Range Rules have been revised (emphasis added):

Hours of Operation

1.    Firearm range may only be used for shooting:

a.    Monday through Saturday: 9 AM to 30 minutes BEFORE sunset;

b.    Sunday: 10 AM to 30 minutes BEFORE sunset; and

c.    Sunday: 9:30 AM to 10:00 AM for shotgun patterning only

Ham Shoot: Annual Club Trap Championship

Sunday, March 26th, 9:30 registration; 10 am start

  • $10 entry fee for two rounds of 1-bird trap (pay cash at event)
  • Top five scorers win a ham (alternate prizes available too)
  • Additional prizes for hitting a white clay bird, inserted at random
  • Optional $10 50/50 cash pool: top score/raffle

As always, bring your own shells (lead or steel), which you’ll need two boxes, one for each round, (50 rounds total) of #7-1/2, #8, or #9 shot. You can use any shotgun, as long as it has a stock and barrel length of 18 inches or longer. All members are welcome but if you haven’t shot trap before, please join us for a practice round prior to the match.

Since we award prizes, match participation is limited to members and their family household only–no other guests.

No regular trap held on this day–match only.
