Here at Smithmoor Range, we are committed to providing a family atmosphere for our shooters and their families. Anyone, any age is welcome on the range whether shooting or not. We just ask that everyone be respectful of those shooting by keeping conversation back from the firing line and quiet while firing is occurring. Also, one of the greatest pleasures of being involved in BPCR shooting is the camaraderie of such a polite, courteous, and respectful bunch of good people. Please help us to continue this tradition by being mindful of the children and ladies through refraining from rough language, off color jokes, and excessive alcohol use in their presence.
Thank you for your cooperation, The Gary and Cody Smith Families
