Zero In On Ranges’ Offerings

Rich Landers Outdoors Editor
 

The Spokane Rifle Club has again opened its range to the public so hunters can zero in their rifles before the general hunting seasons.

Non-members are invited to the range 8 a.m.-5 p.m. through Oct. 10 daily except for Mondays and Tuesdays, when the club will be opened only for club members.

The charge for non-members is $6, or $8 for a sportsman with two rifles. A sportsman bringing three or more rifles pays $10, and gets use of the 200-yard range and the 25-yard handgun and small-bore ranges, said Tom Higgins, club spokesman.

The club is raising money for a new clubhouse, Higgins said. The old structure, built in the 1920s, was recently razed.

Spokane Rifle Club members will be on hand to assist with sighting in rifles if necessary. The club supplies targets, spotting scopes and will help with minor scope and sight adjustments and gunsmithing.

The club is located at the junction of Aubrey White Parkway and Rifle Club Road along the Spokane River, downstream from the Bowl and Pitcher.

Info: Tom Higgins, 327-7896 or Spokane Rifle Club, 327-9632.

The Coeur d’Alene Rifle & Pistol Club has opened its range to non-members to sight in their rifles for the fall hunting seasons.

The range, on Atlas Road near the Industrial Park (about 2 miles north of Seltice Way), will be open 8 a.m.-6 p.m. through October. The fee for non-members is $4. There’s no limit on the number of rifles a shooter can sight in.

Ear protection, targets and spotting scopes are available.

The range features a covered firing point, ranges of 25, 50 and 100 yards and a laser safety system.

Info: (208) 666-8803.
