Rifle Range


GCL's rifle range is designed to provide a safe and comfortable environment for the enjoyment of long arm shooting sports. As a result of this we are making some major safety improvements, including a new bullet-resistant wall behind the firing line and redesigned target backers.

The new backers for standing and bench positions will be 6' tall and 18" square. ALL CARDBOARD BACKERS MUST BE PLACED FLUSH WITH THE TOP OF THE POST! The new backers for the two prone/kneeling positions are 4' tall and 18" square. These prone/kneeling backers will be well marked and have an orange painted section. THEY ARE TO BE ONLY USED AT POSITIONS 2 & 3!


GCL's rifle range consists of a covered firing line of having 11 firing positions, permitting year round use regardless of weather. Permanent target holders are installed at 25, 50, 75, 100, 150 and 200 yards.

Target backers are provided for member use and members supply their own targets.

We provide 1 position for offhand/standing, 2 positions for prone, seated and kneeling, and 8 positions with benches for either left or right handed shooters.


GCL sponsors four different rifle competitions;

  • John Garand/CMP high power matches conducted on the second Saturday of each month.

This match will qualify shooters for the Civilian Marksmanship Program of purchasing the M1 Garands and other rifles as available.

  • F-Class center fire rifle match at 200 yds, schedule varies

  • Mini-Palma / F-Class rimfire match the fourth Sunday of each month

  • NYS Sporter rifle League 50ft indoors September thru March
