Please submit a copy of your current NRA membership card or a label from your NRA magazine, along with your check and application. When you are accepted, you will be required to attend a Range Orientation (RO) briefing and sign a liability waiver.

These RO briefings will be conducted by the Chief Range Safety Officer. Dates and times of RO briefings will be posted on this website, and emails will be sent to all who must attend a briefing.
The idea for a local gun range was introduced at a general, public meeting at the Ute Pass Cultural Center in Woodland Park, Colorado. The original founders had a vision for a gun club to be located in Teller County.
This gun club would be a safe place for experienced, novice and beginner gun enthusiasts to shoot in a local setting. Many people came to the first open meeting and pledged their support to continue working towards this vision. At first we had no name, no fund, no organization, just a vision. Many hours went into research, planning and getting the word out to the public. Meetings were held, Board members were elected, and Board members donated dozens of hours to get the process started. As a result, we were able to legally register the club name in February 2008.
The next step was to recruit members. A workshop was held giving members a voice in deciding the components of the range. Members also suggested organizations that might benefit from the range, and what the next steps would be to acquire land for the range. Many things had to be worked out and membership involvement was essential in these decisions. By-laws, membership rules and range rules were being prepared by the Board of Directors. These documents were presented to the membership for a vote and were put into place.
An Annual Membership meeting is held in March of each year to fill Board of Directors positions that are up for vote, for the coming year. We also vote on any issues that go before the General Membership. During the year, issues for vote are also presented at meetings set in the By-Laws of the club. Emails are sent out to the membership to keep them informed about our progress.
Our members are required to maintain an NRA membership along with the TCSS membership.
