Fargo Shooting Club Breaks Ground on New Underground Range

Posted: Updated:

The Red River Regional Marksmanship Center is expanding to meet the needs of it's growing membership base.  On Monday, the center broke ground on a new underground rifle range.

The new range will be made up of six 100 meter lanes and is expected to be completed by January first. The center says building the range underground will help with safety and blocking the sound of the firearms.

"We have a gun show here the first week of December and we would like an open house at that time, no shooting," explains Red River Regional Marksmanship Center president Don Hartwig. "And maybe shooting could be, we're hoping the first of the year."

The cost of the project is just more than $700,000 dollars and about $600,000 of that has already been raised. About 700 people are members of the center, but it is also open to the public.

The 100-meter-long rifle range will have six shooting lanes, each with its own shooting bench and target return system, tables for reloading, and range safety officers on duty at all times.

"The new rifle range will offer a much-needed facility for our region, providing area hunters the opportunity to test new guns, sight in scopes, try out new loads, and teach their children year round in all conditions," Steve Scheel, CEO of Scheels All Sports and RRRMC Steering Committee Co-Chairman said.

The Red River Regional Marksmanship Center is located at 640 16th Street Northeast in West Fargo.
