The Wawarsing Rod & Gun Club provides shooting facilities to members at distances up to 300 yards. There are several ranges on the grounds including a rim fire/archery range, skeet and trap ranges and the 300 yard range for center fire rifle and pistol. Shooting hours are from 9:00 am to sunset. Members are expected to be familiar with the club's range rules before using the facilities.

Heads Up: Subject: NYS Senate Bill S8461 Sporting Range Good Neighbor Act
The above referenced proposed bill in the NY Senate that would affect skeet, trap and sporting clay ranges in NY. Give a look (link below). If passed it would require certain property dimensions. If a range can not meet the required dimensions then a protected berm would have to be built to catch the "bullets". This act would also require that lead shot be reclaimed. If passed, this is to be enforced by the NYSDEC.
This bill currently sits in Committee and was sponsored by Pete Harckham (D) of the 40th Senate District in Putnam Co. This is worth keeping an eye on.

Required Insurance Waiver for Guests

Importance Notice – due to an inquiry to our insurance carrier, the carrier has become aware than non-members are shooting firearms at the club.  This is contrary to our insurance policy.  As a result, effective immediately no non-members may discharge firearms on the club property without completing an insurance Waiver, Release and Assumption of Risk Agreement.  This means that all non-members who wish to shoot at the club on any range (the shotgun ranges, 200 yard range and rim fire/ archery range ) must sign this release prior to shooting.  This will effect all shooting events to include Trap Shoots, Skeet shoots, 22 bench rest matches, ARA matches, hunter training classes (both rifle & bow courses), sight-in day and any non-member guests on the ranges.  A supply of the waivers will be available at the 200 yard range building for guest shooters.  Any member who allows a guest to shoot on the ranges without first completing the waiver may face revocation or suspension of their membership. We regret this inconvenience, but to continue our insurance coverage, we must comply.
