Hap Baker Firearms Facility Updates:

Users can look forward to the following facility updates and improvements:

  • The 200-yard berm in the rifle range was regraded and rebuilt, with the side berm elevated to exceed 8 feet, meeting the recently updated NRA range standards.
  • The pistol range was lengthened from 17 to 25 yards and each stall now has its own lighting overhead.
  • The pistol range’s target retrieval system was upgraded with each bench upgraded to an individual stall to protect shooters from casing discharge and reduce noise.
  • Construction of a new building at the range is underway to replace the former construction trailer that had exceeded its useful lifespan.

The Hap Baker Firearms Facility is a public shooting range that has been designed and built to meet the National Rifle Association range specifications. Our goal for this facility is to provide firearms enthusiasts a safe environment for practicing their sporting activities, and police units with a facility for conducting certification, training, and practice operations. The range is equipped with 9 Pistol Lanes (5-25 yards) and 10 Rifle Lanes (25-200 yards). No reservations needed.
