Henry Ranges

Henry Rifle Range

50 Yard Multi Purpose Range

The initial planning and construction details were initiated by Henry Range Committee Chairman John Wilson. The construction of the project was carried out and completed by Henry Range volunteer members over a five year period. Special mention goes to club member Kevin Kivela for his contribution of free earth moving equipment time and labour towards this project.

The range is open to the use of handguns, rim fire and centre fire rifles up to but not including 50 caliber, black powder rifles and pistols and shotguns (Bird Shot Only). No clay target shooting allowed
