Rifle Range


GCL's rifle range is designed to provide a safe and comfortable environment for the enjoyment of long arm shooting sports.


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.

The club has (4) M1 Garands, and (3) M1 Carbines and shooting equipment on a loan basis for first time shooters.

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

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