Sunday, April 1st the West Liberty Gun Club will not be having public hours that day. They will resume Saturday, April 7th at 1 pm.
Public hours begin again this weekend! We are open to the public every Saturday and Sunday from 1 pm to 5pm.
Cost is $15 per person for the day. The pistol bays are pretty soft from all the rain and frost coming out of the ground so please tread lightly if you intend to use them.
The 100 yd. range is good to go and there are some new steel targets located on the right side at the 100 yard line that can be shot with any caliber. (No 50 BMG or armor piercing)
We hope to see everyone out enjoying the facilities this year. Please enjoy the automated gate that is working. You will still continue to sign in at the yellow box, located at the opening of the pistol bay road or the RO Office if during the public hours.
