Four Corners Rod and Gun Club
Salem's Premier Shooting Club
Open, safe shooting, low key events weekly, and fun for everyone
Four Corners Rod & Gun Club is a membership based range. Many of our events are open to the public for a small fee. Click on the membership tab or button above for more information. We are still accepting new members.
A Place to Shoot
Have access to a private range nearly every day of the year. Numerous events are open to public each month. Check out the CALENDAR page for upcoming shoots.
Something for Everyone
From an indoor 50 foot range for rimfire .22 out to 200 yards for your rifles, Four Corners has something for everyone. Fun shoots each week are a great place to practice and meet other shooters. We have an active youth program and special events for women as well. The facility has three ranges for firearms, a known distance archery range and a season 3D archery field.
With rules that emphasize safety, we want everyone to have a fun and safe experience at the club. New member's orientation helps shooters start off right.
CLUB NEWS & UPDATES
New Club Rule Change
The Executive Committee approved a rule change allowing for ten (10) rounds to be loaded in magazines for rifles. This number is now consistent with the ten (10) rounds allowed to be loaded in handgun magazines. M1 Garand owners appear to be the happiest about this news!

Have Shooting & Fishing Gear you want to Buy, Sell or Trade?
Some of you may remember way back when we used to have a for sale, trade, wanted section on the website. Honestly, it was not the easiest thing to manage to say the least. But we are gluttons for punishment (and want to serve the membership as best as we can) so we are going to try a new idea. Instead of on the website, we are going to create a sale / trade / wanted page in the newsletter beginning in August. Here is how it will work.
If you have something firearms or fishing related (we are a rod and gun club) that you would like to sell, are open to trades or are seeking you can send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in the upcoming newsletter. This service is for club members only! Here are the rules.
- You must be a member of the club (no posting for friends or relatives)
- All items must be legal to sell and possess
- Firearms posted must be transferred following Oregon and Federal laws
- You can include contact information in the form of email or phone
- We will try to include photos, but his will depend on if it makes the document too large.
- Include your member number with your submission
- Anyone violating the rules will not be able to post in the future
- All submissions must be received by the 21st of the month to be included in the following month's newsletter
Every month there will be a link to download a PDF page that will have all the information (just like the calendar on the website). So if you have some extra ammo (stop laughing), looking for a fly rod or found a safe queen hiding behind your collection that you wish to part with, you now have another resource.
New Shooting Opportunity #1
A clay target thrower has been installed at the lower range. It is located behind the new sight in building to the west of the main range. It is open to member and guests for use. Members need to bring their own biodegradable clays. Please do not adjust the angle of the thrower; is is set for safety and to not interfere with the main range. Only two shooters may shoot at a time and must shoot from the designated areas. Shooters will need to watch for cease fire on the main range move to the safety area.
New Shooting Opportunity #2
If you have been to the 50 yard side of the short range lately you might have noticed some new framing on the left side of the downrange area. With the 10 yard area of the pistol range being one of the busiest parts of the range, the club has added new points to hang targets at 10, 15 and 25 yards. This adds a new distance (15 yards) and also allows for rifles to be shot at closer ranges (members have been asking for a 25 yard rifle range to get their new scopes "on paper" during sight in. The 50 yard target hangers work on these just like normal. Please make sure you are lined up properly so bullets are impacting properly in the berm. The steel has been moved to the right; please also shoot straight at these as well without crossfire.
