Alta Mesa Gun Club will be their home field. In addition to supporting this group the gun club is also the charter organization for Boy Scout Troop 581.

Friends of NRA has been generous in awarding grant monies for various projects in the past. The most current were for a new public address system, voice activated trap release system, heat pumps, and ceiling insulation. In addition, the NRA recently awarded the gun club $1,850 in range grant funds.
