NOSA Adult Shooters' Indoors Friday Evening Shoots

The indoor shooting for Adult NOSA Members who are also Members of F&G continues at the F&G Ranges every Friday evening from about 6:30 p.m. (Yes this Friday evening shooting is year round; so this is just a reminder.)

NOSA Members (and any guests) while on the F&G grounds shall obey all rules and regulations issued by the TBFG Executive for conduct at this facility. NOSA Members who are also Members of F&G will gain admission using their F&G electronic key fob.

Indoor shooting for rimfire rifles will take place from the building at Range 1 and indoor pistol shooting will take place from the building at Range 8.

A map for the F&G Facility at 260 Pento Road showing the location of its numbered ranges will be found in a link near the bottom of the NOSA website's Range Rules page, and further details for use of the F&G Facility will also be found there.

Food and beverages are provided free by NOSA. This annual event is in appreciation of the volunteerism and support shown by all members, whether at special events or just in the day to day help provided to others.

Shooting events are free to participate and will include rimfire (RF) and centerfire (CF) handguns and rifles. Black Powder (BP) firearms may also participate in appropriate centerfire events.
