    Effective immediately all Shotgun and Rifle shooting at the Pistol Range is now Prohibited.  When first established, the Pistol Range (behind the Shotgun Sports Field) had a single shooting position for shotgun patterning and rim-fire rifle shooting was permitted.  These range rules were a carryover from the old "Plinking Range" which was shut down.  

    Due to misuse, excessive damage to targets, and planned use changes, the Pistol Range is now reserved for pistol shooting only.  New signage is now in place at the range indicating this permitted use change.

    Rim-fire rifle shooters and shotgun shooters using slugs and may use the 25/50 yard range.  For patterning, shotgun shooters can use the patterning station at the Shotgun Sports Field when the Field is open and under the supervision of a Range Officer.

    Going forward, the Club is working towards opening up dedicated ranges for rim-fire rifle shooting and and static shotgun target shooting.

    As part of a larger effort to improve member and public safety, all new members are required to attend a Range Orientation before they can use the club's ranges.  The orientation is also open to the public and no cost.

    This course runs most Saturday mornings at 10 am for 2 hours.  The orientation includes a tour of club facilities, a review of firearm safety, and instruction on range rules.

    The orientation is lead by the KDGFC Range Manager or by a KDFGC Instructor.
