Public Invited to Sight-in Firearms at the Valley County Rifle and Pistol Club Range
By angelamontana


Local organizations are teaming up to provide a public “sight-in day” at the Valley County Rifle and Pistol Club (VCRPC) shooting range starting at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.  All hunting-aged folks are welcome, and youth under 18 years of age need to be accompanied by an adult.  The event is free of charge.

Members of the VCRPC, Hi-Line Sportsmen, and Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will be on-hand to offer assistance, advice, and encouragement for both youth and adults to properly and safely sight-in their firearms.  FWP will be providing hearing and eye protection, along with targets, but the public is also encouraged to bring their own equipment if they desire.  No shotguns are allowed at the event.

The Hi-Line Sportsmen will be providing hot dogs, chips and water, with a free-will donation for the meal.  Hi-Line Sportsmen will also be selling t-shirts and providing raffle tickets for a gun and gun cabinet.  While at the event, folks are encouraged to learn more about both the Hi-Line Sportsmen and the VCRPC, as new members are always welcome.

The location for the sight-in day is at the VCRPC range north of Glasgow: Drive two miles north from Glasgow on Highway 24 North, turn west (left) on Johnson Road, and proceed west 1.5 miles to the club gate. Go through the gate and follow signs for approximately one mile to the range.

Please call Hi-line Sportsmen President Jennifer Jackson at 406-263-7339 if there are any questions.  The public is asked to make sure that all firearms are in good, safe working order, and matched with the correct ammunition that will be used during the hunting season.
