The East End Rod and Gun Club opens at 8 am Monday through Friday, and 9 am Saturday and Sunday. This is a private club, and membership is required to use it. Members may bring guests. If you are not a member, and wish to use the range, membership information is here.
The range closes 30 minutes before sunset. Make sure to look at the time board at the gate for the end shooting time that day! The gate will open for another 45 minutes, so don't dally in leaving.

The Rifle Range is open, BUT .... ....
Spofford Road has heavy traffic since other roads were closed due to flood damages. There's one location where vehicles on that road can be BRIEFLY seen from the firing line of the rifle range. This is behind the 700 and 800 yard berms.
If you are using those berms, be aware of that traffic, and take care in your aim.
The Club is meeting this week with the land owners about building a berm at that location.
UPDATE: The construction project has been delayed due the flooding and heavy rains.
We are expecting to have soil from a construction project placed on the range in the next week or two. The soil will be used to extend the Action Range, including berms all around it. The soil, and the effort to build the berms is at no cost to the East End Rod & Gun Club.
This benefits the Club by expanding the size of the Action Range, and improving its safety, especially for members using the Rifle Range. More activities will be possible on the Action Range as well.
The work is expected to take several weeks. While the haul is in progress, there will be construction equipment and trucks on both the Action and Rifle Ranges throughout the week.
So, once the haul starts, both the Rifle and Action Ranges will be "black flagged" on weekdays. Those ranges will be open on the weekends.
The shotgun range, muzzle loading range, and the pistol bays are not affected by this project, and will remain openl.
We regret the inconvenience that many members will experience, but we will all benefit from these improvements.
We will announce the actual closure on our Facebook page, this website, and by e-mail, when it happens.
UPDATE: We have an event director for the 3 Gun event! We are still looking for an event director for 22 Silhouette and Rimfire Challenge.
Many of you participate in events and clincs throughout the year, sponsored by the East End Rod & Gun Club. These offer fun for you and the family, good shooting experiences, and the opprotunity to promote the shooting sports. These events includes 5 Stand shotgun, Muzzle Loaders, Cowboy Action. The Club also sponsors the Family Range Day, First Shots, and Women On Target clinics. All of these are managed by event directors, volunteers who work with the Board to offer a variety of shooting sport events for the members, and also to the public.
Unfortunately, three events may not be held in 2020, unless event directors step forward. If you want to help the club to continue to succeed, read this.
