There are some new/changed procedures for the reopened range.  The details of the new procedures can be found   in COVID SLOSA Reopening Plan by clicking on this link.

A few additional follow-ups to the reopening:

1) The Reopening Plan mentions pre-registering and pre-paying before visiting the range.   We have that ability in place for some of our matches (e.g., Action Pistol range matches).   However, we currently DO NOT have that in place for the rifle-pistol or shotgun or archery ranges.   We are working towards that.   For now, RIFLE-PISTOL AND SHOTGUN RANGES ARE FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED.   Sorry for any confusion caused.

2) The reopening plan says people over 65 or with a serious medical condition should "please consider the health risk before participating".   Some members have interpreted that to mean that older members are not welcome.   That is NOT the case.  COVID does seem to be harder on those of us who aren't spring chickens any longer and have other medical issues.   It is probably good advice for us older folks to use a little extra caution about possible exposure in all situations (not just the range).   That said, if you feel comfortable coming out, you are more than welcome.    The SLOSA team worked hard with DFW to get this agreement in place and we hope everyone who wants to participate at the range comes out, feels welcome and enjoys themselves.

But Google says your hours are...
Unfortunately, the Google business summary page seems to only allow one set of hours to be shown for a business.   We have a variety of ranges (rifle-pistol, shotgun, archery, action pistol, cowboy action, muzzleloader) each with their own hours.   We are looking into it but it doesn't appear that the Google Business summary will allow that level of detail in the hours listed.  So we had to pick one set of hours to list and we picked Rifle-pistol because that is by far our most visited range.   You will always find the detailed hours for each range listed here at and we apologize for any confusion that the Google listing creates.
Student Night on the Rifle-Pistol and Shotgun ranges
Friday Night is Student Night at the Rifle/Pistol range.   Bring your student ID to the Friday night session (6PM-9PM) and shoot for $10 even if you aren't a member.  And on the Shotgun range, students can shoot for the member price of $8/round on Thursdays.   In 2017, student pricing at Shotgun expands to Thursdays, Fridays and Mondays!
Popgun Night
Popgun Night is our monthly family-oriented rimfire-only evening at the rifle range.   We start Popgun night at 5 PM and it goes until about 8.  Popgun Night is the first Saturday of each month at 5PM at the SLOSA Rifle-Pistol range.  See the  Youth Activities page  for additional information.
