Main Range RESERVATION 11:40 AM to 1:30 PM Friday, May 14th

Use this option to reserve a lane on the 200-yard Main Range for FRIDAY, MAY 14th from 11:40 AM to 1:30 PM

Due to COVID-19, the following processes and procedures will be in place at the Joe Foss Range until further notice.


IMPORTANT - March 22nd, 2021 UPDATE:    

  • Face Masks are not required on the range
  • The Main Building, housing the Store, will reopen to the Public starting Saturday, March 13th.  Face masks are required to enter the Store.
  • The Store is now open FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS and SUNDAYS. 
  • PLEASE NOTE: 1) you are now again able to purchase merchandise from the Store at the range (e.g., targets, eye and ear protection, scope rental, etc.), 2) eye and ear protection are mandatory.  If you do not have or bring your own eye and ear protection you will be able to purchase it in the Store, 3) you are again able to purchase targets in the Store at the range, 4) all firearms MUST be cased.  If you do not have a case for your firearm do not bring it onto the range - leave it in your vehicle and proceed to the Store to rent a case, 5) pre-paid, online reservations for shooting benches can only be made in the ASRPA Shopping Cart, and 6) if you arrive at the range without a pre-paid, online reservation having been made you will probably not be able to shoot.
  • The Restrooms have reopened.  However, the Maximum Occupancy is just 1 Person; only 1 Person at a time is allowed inside a Restroom.  If someone is inside the Restroom please wait outside at the blue line until they exit.  Face Masks are not required while you are in the Restroom.




  • If you want to make a reservation for someone in addition to yourself, you must generate a separate order for them in the Shopping Cart.  Do not change the default quantity (Qty*) of ‘1’ – if you do your order will be cancelled.  A reservation must be generated, separately, for each individual shooter, regardless of age.
    • Follow this procedure precisely:
      • a) create a reservation for yourself and add it to the Shopping Cart
      • b) select ‘Continue Shopping’
      • c) create another reservation order for the person that will be shooting with you and add it to the Shopping Cart
      • d) proceed to Checkout and complete the transaction
  • If you wish to shoot with someone else at the same shooting bench (Note: 2 people max per bench), select the ‘Add'l Person shooting at my bench (separate reservation required)’ box and enter their name so our Range Master knows to pair them with you.  PLEASE NOTE: putting a name in this box DOES NOT constitute a reservation - this is for our scheduler's information only.
  • As in the past, persons under 18 shoot for free, but they must have a Reservation.  When filling out the reservation, under ‘Cost’ select ‘Under 18’ from the drop-down box and the cost will net to $0.
  • If the time block you want shows ‘Out-of-Stock’ it is full – please select another time block.
  • You must have watched the Joe Foss Range Safety & Instruction video prior to coming to the range.  If you have previously been to the range, select ‘Yes’ in the ‘I certify I have watched the online Safety Video’ field when making your reservation.
  • Bring a printed copy of your Invoice you will receive by email to the Range (Invoice on smart phone is fine too).


  • DO NOT COME TO THE JOE FOSS COMPLEX WITHOUT A PRE-PAID RESERVATION.  If you do not have a pre-paid reservation you probably not be able to use the range.
  • All persons, whether they will be shooting or not, and regardless of age, must make and have an online, pre-paid reservation in order to be present at a bench, or seating area, on or near the firing line.  Exceptions will be made for those assisting shooters with disabilities who themselves will not be shooting.  In those cases please send an email, in advance, to informing us of your situation.  
  • In adherence with social distancing guidelines, a maximum of 20 of the 40 shooting lanes on the 200-yard MAIN RANGE will be utilized at any given time.  For safety purposes, the number of lanes available for reservation on a given day is contingent upon the number of certified JFR Volunteer RSOs we have on hand for that day.
  • Lane Reservations are now for 1-hour and 50-minutes only, in three time blocks: 7:30-9:20 AM, 9:40-11:30 AM and 11:40 AM-1:30 PM.
  • Due to social distancing requirements we cannot take reservations for specific shooting benches.  Similarly, we cannot take reservations for rifle benches.  We will note your request for a specific bench or a rifle bench in our reservation system but can make no guarantees.  Rifle benches are allocated at the range on a first-come, first served basis. 
  • Due to the time restriction, the usual price of $7 per shooter has been reduced to $5 per person (either shooter or non-shooter).  As in the past, discounts are available for ASRPA Members, Military (Active Duty) and Law Enforcement (Active Duty).  Persons under 18 shoot for free (but must have a Reservation!).
  • For those wishing to shoot with someone else, please note that a maximum of 2 people ONLY are allowed at each shooting bench.
  • Reservations are non-transferable.  Only the person listed on your Invoice in the 'Name (First & Last)' field is permitted to shoot.  This is an insurance/liability issue for the range.  Substitution requests will be entertained if:  a) they are received 24-hours prior to your reservation time, b) you provide by email the first and last name of the person being replaced as well as the replacement, and c) you certify by email that the replacement person has watched online the Joe Foss Range Safety & Instruction videoThe email address to send your request and the required info to is:
  • JFR Volunteers or persons using complimentary ‘Good for One Day of Shooting’ cards will not be using this reservation process.  Instead, please email your date and time block request to:
  • Drawing and shooting from a holster are not permitted on the 200-yard Ensign John C. Butler Main Range.


  • All firearms MUST be cased upon arrival at the range.  (Note: knit gun socks are not gun cases).  If you do not have a case for your firearm leave it in your vehicle and proceed to the Store and rent a case. 
  • While on the range eye and ear protection are required.  Eye and ear protection can be purchased in the Store at the range. 
  • Proceed directly to the Tower on the range and present your pre-paid Invoice to the Range Master who will assign you a shooting lane.
  • As a courtesy to fellow shooters, Patrons are expected to be off the range prior to the expiration of their time block.
