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.

Featured Club Activities & News
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.
July 4th Military Rifle Shoot is Back
After taking a year off a shooting pistols on Independence Day last year, we are returning to our roots for this shoot with vintage military rifles. We change up the rules a little each shoot so download a flyer by clicking here: PDF MSWord.
This year shooters are called to use military rifles in use from WW I through Vietnam. No sporterized guns and iron sighs only. Think of something like what Gunny R. Lee Ermey would have used. Of course we will be slinging pancakes, sausage and eggs to get there early for breakfast (beginning at 0800 hours, that's military time). If you have never shot one of these events they are a fantastic way to connect with our ballistic history.
.22 Fun Shoot has Something for Youth Shooters
The .22 fun shoots are a great way to introduce youth shooters into our sporting activities. Starting in June, thanks to a donation by Vortex Optics, youth shooters will receive hats and T-shirts while supplies last. These are great, low cost events for both adults and younger shooters. There will be some loaner guns and a limited supply of ammo for youth shooters who may not have a firearm to use (please contact the match director for additional information). We would like to welcome the Sean Johnson as the new match director. His contact information is located on the Contact Us page. And a special thank you to Greg Plas for running the successful matches in the past. The shoot is held on the 3rd Saturday of the month at the Lower Range. The cost is only $5.00 for members and $10.00 for non-members.
Education Foundation Elections in July
The Education Foundation elections will be held at the general membership meeting on July 6th. Current nominations are posted on the board in the short range. Additional nominations will be accepted at the meeting as well.
New Parking Spaces Honoring our Veterans
The next time you park at one of the ranges you will notice new signs honoring those who served in the armed forces. Thank you to all of our members who are either Veterans or still serving in the military.
Save the Date: Saturday, July 31st.
For what you ask? Quite possibly the coolest shoot at the club in modern times. TOP SHOT will challenge competitors with a little bit of everything. Events include .22 rimfire rifle and pistol in the indoor range, center fire handguns at 10 & 25 yards, pistol caliber carbines (or rifles) at 50 yards, long guns at 100 yards, flying clays with a shotgun, archery and even a casting pond (remember, we are a ROD and gun club!) Click HERE for a flyers and more details will follow. But definitely mark the date on your calendar. Contact information is on the flyer so please let the coordinators know if you will be attending.
