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
Short Range Closure
Tuesday, July 5th - Possibly Extended
Lighting is being added to the 10 and 25 yard portions of the Short Range in July. To make this happen our electricians will need access to the range on Tuesday, July 5th and possibly additional days. There is also a chance that there may need to be range closures on the 50 yard side for the safety of the crew. Check back here for updates and to check on the progress of the work.
INDOOR RANGE CLOSURE
Currently Closed - Watch for Additional Information
As you have noticed the club has been working on the Indoor (.22 rimfire) Range for the past several weeks. During the process we have found additional improvements to help keep members safer and make for a better shooting experience. Unfortunately, these will take longer than initially expected causing an extended range closure.
We are working to reopen the range as soon as possible with the help of many of our volunteers. Some of the work is beyond the scope that we can do with in-house labor and we are working with vendors to assist with these tasks.
We will be posting update when available along with updated procedures for range use. We are looking forward to a Grand Re-Opening as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience. Remember all .22 rimfire firearms can use all distances at the Short Range and rifles can shoot at the Lower Range.
Remember to Check the Calendar for Event Cancellations
Please remember to check the calendar for cancellations for events. We have had a few due to illness and other conditions. The indoor range will be closed for maintenance as well.

Photo ID Badges are Coming for Club Members -
Four corners Rod & gun club will be implementing picture badges and eliminating the paper badge you have received in past years. Why are we changing to picture id cards? To save money and tighten our security around the club. The cost to produce the paper badges in the past was costing the club $3,000.00 per year. So, we are looking forward to the cost savings, so we can use that money towards improving our club in other ways. Our goal is to have every member with picture ID by renewal deadline 2023.
Here is how we are going to transition and achieve this goal.
Over the next 12 months, we are going to print your picture on your current gate cards. We will be setting up monthly workshops for members and associate member spouses to come to the club and get their picture taken. Any members with children associates will not need a picture gate card for their children, they will receive a standard card. Over the next 12 months, we will post on the Four Corners Rod and Gun Club monthly electronic newsletter, the FCRGC web page, www.fourcornersgunclub.com, / www.fcgc.info, along with informational posters on the short range, indicating the dates and times of the workshops, so you can come to the club and get your gate card changed to a picture ID badge.
Any questions Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org

New Gate Code System for Events is Active
Effective this month, all non club members entering the club for our discipline shoot or other events will need to use a gate code for entry. The code will be provided by the discipline director or other person in charge of the event. This new policy will help keep the club more secure while still providing access for non-members for our many events open to the public. If you are not a member of the club and would like to attend one of our shoots, please check the CONTACT page of the website for more information about how to contact the discipline director; additional information may also be located on the CALENDAR page.
