• Important Shooting Range Updates!
Due to the construction of the new restrooms at the Ortonville shooting range, the 200-yard range could be shut down for safety concerns. Prior to traveling to the range, shooters should call the range staff at 248-627-5569 to find out whether the 200-yard range is open. Note that the construction will only impact the 200-yard range, not the other shooting areas. Thank you for your patience during the construction process.

In order to accommodate shooter demands for the sight-in season, Sharonville range staff removed the 10-yard target backers on October 1. The 10-yard range will return for handgun enthusiasts on January 2, 2014.
The new 3-D archery range opened on August 17 at the Sharonville shooting range.
Modern restrooms are coming to the Ortonville, Pontiac Lake, and Sharonville shooting ranges to make them more user friendly for shooters! Construction will be done in stages at the three ranges, and we expect the work to be completed in the fall.
