WELCOME TO

Four Corners Rod and Gun Club

Salem's Premier Shooting Club

Open 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 (currently additional restrictions for public access due to COVID restrictions).  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 (currently limited due to COVID restrictions).  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. 

Safety First

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

The Ladies Shoot is Back for Club Members

Beginning in March (Monday the 15th) the monthly shooting / training event for lady shooters is returning for club members.  This popular event will be held in the indoor .22 rimfire range from 6pm - 9pm over the colder and darker winter months (yes the heater is working!)  See the calendar for additional details. 

Good Housekeeping at the Range

Please remember to clean up your brass and bench area after shooting at any of the ranges.  You are welcome to collect your own brass (and other lying around that you find) but please make sure any that you are not saving goes into the brass bucket at each range.  Casings that go forward into the sand on the short range can be left if needed.  Thanks for helping to keep our range clean.
