Enjoy safe handgun and rifle practice at the Hobbs Shooting Range. The shooting range accommodates target stands at distances of 25, 50, 75 and 100 yards. Five covered shooting stations are provided including one barrier-free station. The range has a concrete floor and a metal trap to catch fired rounds.
Shooters are required to provide their own targets (paper or cardboard only) and clothes pins (wooden only) for affixing targets to the stands. Used targets and brass should be removed before leaving the range.
Safety and courtesy among shooters is of utmost importance. Please call out "RANGE CLEAR" and confirm that all shooting has ceased before entering the target area.
The range entry road is near the intersection of State Highways 12 and 303 North.
