Welcome to the East End Rod and Gun Club!

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.

UPDATE 3: RANGE OPERATIONS DUE TO COVID-19

Due to the "stay at home" executive order in Oregon, all organized events at the range are cancelled effectively immediately, and through April 30th.  This includes range orientations and work days.    More details are posted in the club news.  The calendar will be edited to reflect this.

UPDATES:  


UPDATED!  ATTENTION ACTION RANGE USERS! UPDATED!  

UPDATE: The Action Range has been disked to lower the chances of a ground ricochet.  The steel target stands are now positioned at the berm as well.  Other changes will take place later this week.

We are getting reports of ricochets from the Action Range impacting around the 500 and 600 yard berms. These reports are from members at those targets, so this is a serious safety issue.

You MUST shoot into the berm at the end of the Action Range.  No shooting at ground targets; all bullets MUST hit the berm. Check your trajectories carefully.


 It's Farming Season!  Please Keep An Eye Out For Equipment!

  
If you see any farming equipment downrange, even if it is not moving, all shooting must cease.  This is a requirement of the club's conditional use permit from Umatilla County.  This includes all ranges, but is especially of concern on the rifle range.
 
After shooting ends, raise the black flag, and immediately call (541) 203-0124.

That pile of railroad ties is for the second safety area for working on malfunctioning firearms.  It will be built by the blacksmith building.  If you are able and interested in helping, send a message to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The Club [still] Needs Event Directors!

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.
