Bear Arms Fun Shoot Update
Bear Arms is back its traditional schedule. Thursday Fun Shoots at Bear Arms have resumed. The range has made physical updates for a more pleasant shooting experience. Each unique course of fire has been made shorter and simpler to help reduce ammo consumption. See you there. Be safe!
Also, on Thursday evenings there are USPSA style pistol matches at the Mountain Range (https://www.mountainrangewnc.com/) , at 17 Palmer Road, Waynesville, NC 28786. Matches start at 5:30 pm.
You will find a great group of shooters at either location
