Q: What are your shooting hours?
Closed on Mondays; Tuesday thru Friday, 9 am to 8 pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. No shooting after sunset or the posted closing hour, whichever is earlier.
Q: How do I become a new member of the association?
You must first visit the shooting range office to secure a “New Member Application”. While at the range, you will be asked to fill in the appropriate information on the form and give it, along with the corresponding dues and initiation fee for the type of membership, to the Rangemaster or his designee. The Rangemaster (or his designee) will give you a range orientation and safety briefing. (You may email the Rangemaster to make an appointment at email@example.com ) The Rangemaster (or his designee) will sign the form, collect the dues and initiation fee, and pass the application on to the Secretary who will include you in the roster and send your membership credentials.You may download the application form by clicking the box below, fill it in and bring it to the range when you come for your orientation.
Q: Do you have family memberships?
Yes. The dues are a little more for a Family Membership but includes the primary member, spouse and children under 18 who live in the same household as the primary member. The same application form is used as for an “Individual” member.
Q: How do I renew my membership?
Print and fill out the application form, sign and mail with appropriate dues to Jefferson County Sportsmen’s Assn, P.O. Box 737, Port Townsend, WA 98368.
Q: Can I bring a friend to go shooting with me?
If you are a current member, you can bring a quest.
Q: What if I’m not a member? Can I still try out your range?
Yes. You will have to check in with the Rangemaster before you begin and get an orientation and safety briefing and pay a $10.00 range use fee. You do not have to be a club member or pay the range use fee if you are a participant in any of our sanctioned matches and trap shoots and pay the match fee for that activity.
Q: What about targets?
Target stands and backer-boards are provided by the association but you should bring your own paper targets. Take your shot up targets with you when you leave and dismantle and stow your target stands and components. Leave your clay targets on the ground at the trap range. Junk targets like tin cans, water jugs, metal plates, fruits and vegetables are not approved targets. Targets other than paper targets mounted on the target backer boards, unless individually sanctioned by the Rangemaster, are not approved. Targets must be positioned so that shots passing through them will strike the impact berms not the floor of the range or go over the berm.
Q: If the pistol range is in use for a match or other event, can I shoot pistol on the rifle range?
Yes. You must hang your targets on the backer boards near the impact berm and move your shooting position down range to an appropriate distance from the backer board. Portable target stands used on the pistol range are not allowed on the rifle range. Use caution and communicate with other shooters on the rifle range and alert them to your position down range. You will have about a half hour for your activity before you have to vacate and let other shooters use the longer range for rifle shooting. Basically, it’s first come, first served.
Groups with reservations have priority on any of the ranges. Check the Calendar Page to see when the range is reserved for a group activity and plan accordingly.
Safety will always rule when there is a question and the Rangemaster will enforce the rules.
Q: Are there any Volunteer Opportunities
Yes, Watch the calendar page for Work Party Dates. JCSA is planning to set the last Sunday of each month as Work Party Day when needed maintenance and other projects will be performed. Let Don McNees know via e mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and show up for the day.
And of course JCSA is always looking for people to serve on various committees. Contact the club at email@example.com and let us know how you can help.
