Pistol Caliber Carbines Allowed to shoot Yellow/Green Swingers

posted Aug 6, 2019, 5:01 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club

A new rule has been introduced recently to Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club. In the past, the yellow/green swingers were restricted to rimfire calibers and handguns only. With the upgrade of our swinger material to AR500 steel, it is now permitted to shoot the yellow/green swingers with rimfire calibers and STANDARD HANGUN CALIBERS. This change means that pistol caliber carbines shooting 9mm luger, 40 S&W and other such typical handgun calibers may now shoot the yellow/green swingers. Frequent requests from our membership, increased popularity of pistol caliber carbines and our new swinger material has allowed us to enhance the shooting enjoyment of our members by increasing the variety of targets that may now be engaged. Stop down soon to put that new pistol caliber carbine through its paces!

Steps Have Been Repaired!

posted Apr 30, 2019, 1:57 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club

Unfortunately the steps leading down to the shooting benches have been closed for a few weeks following the damage done by melting snow and heavy rains earlier this Spring. Over the course of the past two weeks the steps have been completely rebuilt with the work wrapping up today, April 30th. A lot of manpower, dozens of new cinder blocks and a slightly new design should provide convenient access to the shooting benches for a long time to come. Of course mother nature always takes talk like that as a personal challenge to prove us wrong. Hopefully she looks favorably on our work and doesn't send any 100 year storms our way. As always, please watch your step as you make use of the new steps!

Hours of Operation Changing to Summer Schedule 4-1-19

posted Nov 28, 2018, 7:12 AM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club   [ updated Mar 28, 2019, 7:58 AM ]

As of Monday, April 1st, we are officially on our summer operating schedule and will continue on that schedule thru the end of September. The Summer schedule for range operations is Wednesday thru Friday from 9am to 6:30pm and weekends (Saturday & Sunday) from 9am to 6pm. The heavy snow cover and unusual rains this Spring damaged the steps leading down to the range so until repairs can be made we are asking that all access to the range be via the concrete paved driveway. Remember also that if you are bringing a lot of gear for a day of shooting, it is okay to drive down the hill to unload your gear. You will need to return your vehicle to the parking lot at your first opportunity however. Stay Safe !!!

NRA Certified RSO's at KSC

posted Sep 29, 2018, 1:03 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club

Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club now boasts six (6) NRA Certified Range Safety Officers among its staff. The National Rifle Association developed the Basic Range Safety Officer Course in 1998 to satisfy the need to have trained persons oversee and conduct safe range operations. This extra level of training and knowledge brings the skills and proper attitude necessary to safely and competently fulfill RSO duties. Having six (6) RSO's receive this NRA certification puts Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club at the forefront of local shooting ranges in the Fox River Valley. Our NRA certified RSO's are identified on the "Officers" page by *** following their names. Click on "Officers" in the side navigation bar or look for their name tags when visiting the range for the special "NRA certified RSO" designation. Just one more way that Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club strives to make your visit enjoyable and safe.

History of Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club

A booklet that describes the history and evolution of Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club is available for purchase. The booklet was researched and published by an independent third party and offers a glimpse into the often colorful history of shooting and firearms. The booklet sells for $10 and is available by contacting Diana Driessen at either 920-419-4070 or 920-766-2906.

Clarification of Handgun Treatment

posted Dec 22, 2017, 1:19 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club   [ updated Apr 8, 2018, 9:22 AM ]

In the interest of keeping everyone out of harms way, we are enforcing more strictly a Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club (KSC) policy that has been in effect since 2011. The policy relates to the treatment of handguns being used at the range. Concealed carry firearms that remain concealed and unused at the range may continue to be carried concealed throughout your visit to the range. Openly carried firearms, typically in an external holster, that remain holstered and unused at the range may continue to be carried holstered throughout your visit to the range. Once a firearm is used at the range, all of the range rules apply to that firearm. In particular, firearm actions must be open, magazines out and the firearm placed face up on the bench during cease fires. Alternatively, the firearm may be placed in a case that completely encloses the firearm. Holsters are NOT considered to be cases. These rules are quite explicitly written out in both the RANGE RULES signs and the LIGHT SYSTEM explanation signs at the range. Holstering and unholstering firearms (draw & fire drills) is not permitted unless the exercise is part of official law enforcement training conducted during non-public range days. The RSO on duty has the final say as to what is and what is not permitted. Arguing with the RSO or conducting oneself in a disruptive manner will earn you an expulsion from the range. Remember, the whole reason behind these policies and practices is to maintain the highest level of safety and enjoyment for everyone who visits KSC. Stay SAFE my friends.

Snow Removal Services Needed

posted Nov 14, 2017, 2:58 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club

Now that our parking lot expansion is complete and all parking for range members and guests will be in our newly expanded parking lot instead of along Cty Hwy Z, we are in need of snow removal services for the upcoming winter months. If there are KSC members who could donate those services to the range that would be greatly appreciated. If donating services is not possible, please contact any range personnel to provide us with some estimated costs for snow removal services. Thank you very much!

New Parking Lot "Completed"

posted Nov 7, 2017, 12:20 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club   [ updated Nov 21, 2017, 8:37 AM ]

Our newly expanded parking facilities are now available for our members and visitors. It is still our intent to pave the parking areas at some point in the future but we want to see how rain and melting snow runoff is handled by the present surface. Along with the new parking lot comes a change to how access is gained to the rifle range. The pedestrian gate located along Highway Z to the North of the shooting range has been permanently closed. Parking along the highway has been eliminated and will be enforced by local law enforcement agencies. Pedestrian access to the rifle range will be by walking down the newly paved driveway or the footpath along the fence line bordering County Hwy Z that hooks up with the old stairway down to the range. That gate is located at the far North East corner of the range properties. We will be posting some new pictures on our photos page in the near future so be sure to check back often. 

Friends Enjoy the Range

posted Sep 17, 2017, 4:57 PM by Kaukauna Sportsmen's Club

On a beautiful day in Fall, four friends came with a parent to KSC to enjoy the experience of shooting. A couple of them had never shot a firearm before so not only was the new experience enjoyable but it was also educational. Near the end of their visit, they had an opportunity to shoot a vintage World War One firearm, a 1917 Eddystone. Each chambered the 30-06 round and took aim at the steel swingers 100 yards away. Each heard the ring of lead on steel after taking careful aim and pulling the trigger of the 100 year old firearm. The experience of a lifetime and the sense of accomplishment was evident as they posed for a picture with the firearm. That picture has been added to our Photos section of this website. The young men are from left to right, Ian Sorenson, Joe Radtke, Sam Radtke and Trey Anderson.
