The Bigfork Gun Club is a full-service facility dedicated to the shooting arts.
With the removal of Stage II Fire Restrictions, the club will be open for normal activities starting this afternoon, Wednesday, August 25. However, because wildfire danger still exists, we ask that everyone remain vigilant in preventing fire and other accidents. Caution is the key. Please be safe.
You can find the official link to the removal notice here https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/flathead/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD947260
The Board of Directors
The next General Meeting is scheduled for Monday, October 4th at 6 PM. New members should arrive early to complete their application process.
Please email email@example.com and provide your contact information so we can schedule your orientation.
THE NEW 200 AND 300 YD. RANGE HAS BEEN REOPENED UNTIL CONSTRUCTION RESUMES IN THE SPRING. DUE TO PROBLEMS CAUSED BY VEHICLES DRIVING ON THE MIDDLE FIELD DURING THE WINTER MONTHS WE URGE YOU TO RESIST THE TEMPTATION TO DRIVE DOWN RANGE TO THE TARGET BOARDS AT THIS TIME. WE GREATLY APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.
ALSO, PLEASE DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE ON THE NEWLY REFURBISHED PISTOL BAYS. VEHICLES WILL DAMAGE THE SURFACE. THANK YOU!
