Improvement Updates for the 100-Yard Range
The Linn County Conservation Board recently applied for a grant to help support the costs related to the improvements of the Matsell Bridge Shooting Range. Unfortunately, the grant was not awarded to Linn County.
The Department continues to move forward with design and engineering plans. The timeline for reopening the 100 yard range is dependent upon design plan completion, estimated costs, construction, and weather – and subject to funding availability. The Department is currently evaluating proposed rules and regulations. All information will be presented to the Conservation Board for approval.
Status of the 50-Yard Pistol Range
The 50-yard pistol range is open daily to the public. It is open only to those people who have been through the orientation class put on by the Linn County Pistol Club and issued an identification badge by the club. Users must have the identification badge with them while shooting.
The Linn County Pistol Club will be offering orientation sessions again starting on April 6th. Orientations sessions are offered the first Saturday of each month April through October starting at 9:00 AM. Orientation takes approximately one hour. There is no registration required.
