Ranges

The pistol ranges at the Fin, Fur and Feather offer Club members, their families and guests a safe, well maintained, and clean location to enjoy shooting year-round.

The indoor range is a standard 50-foot NRA range that was completely renovated in 2018. The range offers 8 shooting stations, an advanced ventilation system, excellent lighting, bullet resistant station walls, electronic key access, heating, and can accommodate calibers up to .44 except magnum loads. The range is open from 7AM to 10 PM daily, and accessible with an electronic key.

The 75-foot Outdoor Range offers 16 shooting stations, covered firing line, LED station lighting, sound deadening range walls, electronic key access, flashing safety lights and no blue-sky range baffles. The targets can be placed at any distance from 10 to 75 feet and the range can accommodate calibers up to .44. The range is open Monday - Saturday: Sunrise to sunset (but no earlier than 7am) and Open Sundays 12:00 noon to 6:00pm Daylight Saving Time, 11:00am to 5:00pm Eastern Standard Time (or until sunset at the latest).

The Fin, Fur, and Feather has an active pistol team. We are a member of the Maspenock Handgun League and compete in NRA-approved pistol matches every Wednesday evening from September through April. The season consists of 30 matches, 15 at home and 15 away. You can use iron or red dot sights. The Pistol Team also shoots each Wednesday evening during the summer, from late April through August. New shooters are always welcome, and encouraged to participate. You need only be a Club Member and have access to a .22 caliber pistol. For more information about the League, see the Maspenock Handgun League website.
