Long Range Day

FEE: Members $15.00 | non=Members $20.00
NOTE: ALL Ranges Closed Till 1:30pm

Long Range Day (LRD) at FSC consists of three (3) different distances: 227 Yards, 337 Yards, and 427 Yards with several different sized steel targets along with optional paper targets to shoot at. The object of LRD is to provide shooters, experienced or not at long range shooting, a setting to shoot at longer distances than average rifle ranges in the area and is a great place to practice or dial in equipment for long range hunting and competitions – or just to have fun!  Shooting for score against your fellow shooters, winning prizes for special stages, or just getting zeroed in, it’s up to you!

Long Range DayFirearms and Ammo used: A variety of firearms used in the past has ranged from rim fire to magnum calibers, bolt, semi-auto, hinge, pump and lever styled actions.  Any legal & safely operating firearm (including long range orientated pistols and muzzle loaders) are welcome to participate, including .50 cal rifles, however will be restricted to paper or bring your own steel target. Legally suppressed firearms are also welcome.

No fully automatic rifles of any caliber is to be used.  No tracer, incendiary, steel core or armor piercing ammunition allowed.

Target sizes: Various reactive steel target sizes are used to simulate the size scoring rings of popular NRA, CMP, and Bench rest rifle competitions, and also duplicate the average size of the body/vital areas on several types of large, medium, and small game animals so that a shooter can properly range the target and execute the shot with instant feedback of their success. A handout will be provided of the target sizes ( from 3” to 18”), and what they translate to.

ARCHERY

Factoryville Sportsmen’s Club Archery

Many people think of FSC as a firearm shooting club, but did you know that we also offer Archery opportunities year round?

Factoryville Sportsmen’s Club ArcheryNestled slightly off the beaten path and in a peaceful setting behind our horseshoe area lies our 3-D Archery range, available year round with no charge to our members.  This practice range offers you the flexibility of shooting from the ground, or from an elevated platform that simulates a tree stand.

As archery season approaches, it’s time to start tuning up your bows and your skills.  FSC has that covered too with our extended, “Through the Woods” 3-D Archery course twice a year in August and September!

The “Through the Woods” 3-D course has approximately thirty targets set in realistic shooting situations along a path through FSC’s own “Sherwood Forest”. Ranges vary from up close and personal shots to some at 40+ yards.  The course also offers elevated shots, platforms, a simulated blind, and a real arrow-buster on the rocks.

These life-sized hogs, elk, cougars, and of course, white-tailed deer targets along with other animal targets are placed in natural settings to allow for the best bow hunting scenarios you can have, just short of filling a tag!

It takes a pair of archers about an hour and a half to complete the course, with more in your group adding to that time….and with the eyes of your partner being upon you, adds a little more pressure, and adds to the realism.

After completing the “through the Woods” 3-D course, you have a chance to win some real money by shooting at a hanging egg or hitting a Money prize on a long range target!

EQUIPMENT: Conventional tackle, long bows, re-curves; compounds and crossbows are all are welcome.  Heck, bring your atlatl or blowgun if you want.  But you must use target tips no broader than the diameter of the arrow shaft, no broad-heads allowed.

Remember, this is a “Through the Woods” course – it’s suggested to bring bug spray, wear sturdy footwear, and have plenty of arrows.

The shoots start at 9 a.m. with the last shooters allowed on the course no later than 1 p.m.  We are a family friendly Club, and spectators are welcome to join you.  Our kitchen will also be open for breakfast and lunch.

All of this Through the Woods fun will set you back very little whether you’re a member or not.  Junior shooters are charged less, and 12 years of age and under can shoot for free.
