Members and Friends of Putnam County Gun Club,

I would like to take a moment to let you know about an exciting event coming up in a couple weeks.

On September 15th, we will be holding our 23rd Annual Youth Shooting Day at the range.  The ranges will be closed on September 14th (for setup), and September 15th for the event.  The event is put on by Dave Thompson and Bill Shank. Dave and Bill, along with several other volunteers, put a lot of time and energy into this event to make it the repeated success that it has become!  However, we could really use additional help!  If you have free time on the September 14th and 15th, we could use your help.  We need volunteers to help out with the youth activities, transportation to and from the range, registration, and parking.  If you can help, please reach out to myself, or Dave Thompson (contact information below).

Throughout the day, guests will be able to participate in the following activities….

                            .22 Rifle Shooting

                             Air Rifle Shooting


                             Sling Shot Shooting

                             Life Preserver Throw

                             Shotgun Shooting

                             DNR Demonstrations

                             Casting Contest

  Attached is a link for the registration form .  The registration information can be filled out along with the $6.00 entry fee and brought with you during the event.  The event starts at 9AM sharp.

The Rifle Range and Pistol Range are now open.

PCGC Members,

            The Pistol range is now opened on a limited basis.  The majority of work has been completed but sections of the roof and finishing touches will continue over the next couple weeks.  This range will only be closed when active work is being done.  Workers will have priority over the range, and will have the ability to close range once they arrive onsite.  Thank you for your cooperation.

            Major work has been completed on the rifle range also.  The berms have been repaired, the slope of the range has been modified, the sinkhole has been filled in, and several of the shooting backboards have been repaired or replaced.  We hope to possibly have this range opened by the end of next week.  Thanks to Mr. Clark for his continued work on this range.  It looks great!

   Wanted to keep everyone informed as range improvements continue. We have finally been able to have some dry weather.
   The road has new limestone put down on it. The New Pistol range is taking shape.  It has been framed and the roof is half finished.   A Reminder the pistol range is still closed.
    The Liberty range berms have been refreshed and are looking good. 
    The Rifle Range work continues. We have had a backhoe doing work, improving the closer berms and cutting a much needed ditch to help with drainage and the sink hole has been filled in.  Today The bulldozer was delivered. We wasted no time getting to work. The 200 yard berm has been improved and we have finally been able to start moving some real dirt. The backers are being updated and improved as well.
     A BIG thanks to Ed Clark for all his help in operating the equipment, and overseeing this project.

 Dear Putnam County Gun Club Members,
Our service and safety goal is to keep members informed of issues and concerns when they arise. Recently we have had some emails  about possible rounds leaving the rifle range. In good faith and concerns for everyone's safety there has been intermittent closures of the rifle range.
As you all know according to our rules, ALL rounds must strike the backstops. Any round striking the ground will ricochet. 
We, the executive committee are being proactive and taking steps to investigate and rectify this situation. SAFETY has and will always be our number 1 concern.
We are implementing some new sop's and sog's.  We NEED everyone's help and cooperation. We do appreciate everyone's patience during this.
1. There will be a required sign in and out sheet. This is mandatory.  All member's and their guests will need to sign in and out and list the ranges they are going to.
2. There will be safety officers on site, at random times. Give them your cooperation. They are there for all of us.
3. Any unsafe act, rules violations need to quickly brought to the Executive Committee's attention, especially during this time
4. There will be Heavy Equipment brought to the range to do some berm work. 
We are looking for some members to step up and volunteer to help us as Safety Officers. Those qualified people are encouraged to contact Chip, Ed, or Peter.
We thank each and every member for your help and cooperation.
We truly have the best club and people in the Kanawha Valley.
Be safe.

 UPDATE: April 20, 2017

The Range Rules have been trimmed down from 2 pages to 1 page. The ammentment of 2017 edited out redundancy as well as relying on signs at the individual ranges to describe ammunition and arms allowed.  This information coupled with the recently updated orientation link found on sheet 6 of this home page form the regulations for our range. Please read these documents and pass the information along to family and friends before your next visit to the site
