CRGC New Steel Plates Range

New Steel Plates Range

New plate range with covered shooting positionOur steel plates range has been very popular with members, but was in run-down condition due to its frequent use and basic wood and sheet metal construction. So after Member approval, all new steel construction was created for both the plates and the overhead structure. The goals were to create a range that was safe, professional in appearance, fun to shoot and economical to maintain. All surfaces facing the shooter are angled down or to the side for safety. The plates themselves are of a new design which is expected to give them much longer life. However, when they need replacement, their design is simple to cut out and economical to replace. Additional center-fire and rim-fire sets of plates were added and plenty of room is allowed between shooters. A further improvement is that the firing positions are covered from the weather. 

Here are some photos of site work and construction that took place in October. A lot of manual labor was exerted by members reviewing the plans, driving the tractor, unloading steel, digging holes, assembling the cover, etc.
