Club members and our community can enjoy using the club and the various activities provided in a safe and friendly atmosphere. Our facility includes a five lane pistol range to 25 yards, and a six lane rifle range with target stations from 25 to 100 yards. Each firing lane is individually baffled, and safe shooting practices are overseen by a trained Range Safety Officer.
In the clay shooting fields there are two distinct venues; standard American trap, and a five stand (sporting clays) field with duck tower. The seven standard trap fields are equipped with automatic trap machines, and can be used with voice activated target releases. The five stand venue provides “ field hunting” simulations with outgoing, incoming, crossing, and on the ground “rabbit” target presentations. The Club hosts various tournaments and competitions throughout the year, including two registered with Pacific International Trap Association, and one as part of the Olympic Continental League.
In addition to the formal registered competitive shooting, there are a number of “fun” shoots hosted by the Club. These shoots are focused more on enjoying the fellowship of the activity rather than serious competition. Barbeques and potluck picnics are an integral part of these shoots.
Instruction in the safe use of firearms, and improved marksmanship is provided both formally and informally by trained volunteer members at Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club. Experienced members, including several state champions, provide volunteer help in training new shooters on the “how to’s” of the various shooting activities.
Ammunition and reloading supplies (members only) are available for purchase at the Club, and club members enjoy a reduced price on these purchases.
In short, Gig Harbor Sportsman’s Club provides a safe facility, instruction, equipment, and supplies for anyone who desires a friendly environment to participate in supervised shooting sports.
“To provide a facility and organization that safely, enjoyably, and economically allows our members, guests, and our community to participate in the shooting sports and fellowship of the Club.”
