Construction Work

We will be continuing the construction work on the landfill this summer.  Due to the work being done, Skeet Fields C & D and 5Stand 1 and 2 will be closed from 6am to 3pm Tuesday May 8th and Wednesday May 9th. However, this is an ongoing project that should last through the summer months, so periodically ranges will be closed.  Please check in with the office before shooting. If any equipment is moving in the landfill, please do not shoot on a range that could possibly rain shot down on the equipment.

Brass Pickers Policy

The BRSP Board of Directors has decided to charge a fee for anyone that is picking up spent cartridges for profit (brass) on the BRSP property. This includes spent cartridges that will be sold for scrap, at gun shows and other commercial ventures. This fee will not be applied to the casual shooter that picks brass for their use. The fee will be $10 per day per brass picker. The fee will be paid on the last day of the month at the Rifle and Pistol Club house during normal business hours. The brass pickers will sign in with the RSO on duty before they will be able to start picking brass. If brass picker fails to sign in with the RSO they will be asked to leave the property, if this happens five times the picker will be banned for 30 days. Brass pickers will only be able to pick up brass on unoccupied ranges. Unoccupied ranges are defined as no shooters on the range at all, whether they are setting up, shooting or tearing down and packing up. Please see attached policy letter. Thank you for your cooperation. Brass Pickers Policy Letter April 2018

Ice Cleats Must Be Worn On All Rifle and Pistol Ranges 

Due to recent warm temperatures and slick ice conditions, every person on the rifle and pistol ranges MUST WEAR ICE CLEATS AT ALL TIMES starting Sunday March 18, 2018 until further notice. Please take extra care in the parking lot directly in front of the ranges. When range conditions improve, we will lift this mandatory requirement. However it is strongly recommended that all shooters bring ice cleats with them to the range throughout the winter as conditions can change quickly. Please exercise extreme caution while driving and walking on the property.  Ice cleats are available for purchase at the Rifle/Pistol Office during office hours. Quantities may be limited, so please plan ahead. During EPM hours, members and guests must also be wearing cleats while on the property. We realize this requirement may be inconvenient to some of our shooters, but safety is our first priority. Thank you for your understanding.
