Hap Baker Firearms Facility Update:
Hap Baker Firearms Facility is set to reopen Wednesday, April 14, 2021.
Users can look forward to the following facility updates and improvements:
- The 200-yard berm in the rifle range was regraded and rebuilt, with the side berm elevated to exceed 8 feet, meeting the recently updated NRA range standards.
- The pistol range was lengthened from 17 to 25 yards and each stall now has its own lighting overhead.
- The pistol range’s target retrieval system was upgraded with each bench upgraded to an individual stall to protect shooters from casing discharge and reduce noise.
- Construction of a new building at the range is underway to replace the former construction trailer that had exceeded its useful lifespan.
The Hap Baker Firearms Facility is a public shooting range that has been designed and built to meet the National Rifle Association range specifications. Our goal for this facility is to provide firearms enthusiasts a safe environment for practicing their sporting activities, and police units with a facility for conducting certification, training, and practice operations. The range is equipped with 9 Pistol Lanes (5-17 yards) and 10 Rifle Lanes (25-200 yards). No reservations needed. All users are required to bring and wear masks in addition to the normal ear & eye protection and must practice social distancing during their usage.
