Safety is the first consideration at Ransburg Scout Reservation ranges. When visiting a range, listen carefully to all instructions from the Range Safety Officers. The Range Safety Officers are certified in the use of all firearms at our ranges.
We use .22 caliber, single-shot, bolt-action rifles and 12-gauge shotguns. There is a $15 charge for shotgun merit badge and a $8 ammunition fee for rifle shooting merit badge. Optional, yet highly recommended, shooting practice is offered daily at 2:00 pm for merit badge participants. Experience indicates that Scouts wanting to earn these merit badges should plan on attending these sessions.
