**PLEASE READ: Use of firearms are inherently dangerous & could result in severe injury or death. We will not tolerate unsafe shooters, persons, behavior or illegal weapons on the range. **

*** Greenport is a Muzzle down range, meaning unless your weapon is on a target the muzzle must be holstered or in the low position pointing the muzzle at the ground.


*Please maintain this position with all shooters as if we have an AD then the bullet needs to be kept in this range, NO exception!! We need to practice this so our neighbors will be safe and we can continue to shoot here.

*CHAMBER FLAGS will be required when long guns are not in your POSITIVE control.

*NO LOADING OF ANY WEAPON, UNLESS YOU ARE ON THE FIRING LINE. ALL WEAPONS WILL BE UNLOADED IN A SAFE AREA, OR ON THE FIRING LINE. If you are in a private class you will need to follow the instructors wishes whether its a cold range or a hot range for their class only! This is the instructors discretion.

Greenport is machinegun friendly, nothing bigger than 40 mil. Please do not bring illegal weapons onto this range. Bring your paperwork with your weapon as I may want to see it.

Single Stack Classic

The Single Stack Classic will be Sunday, July 24 and must be shot with the classic 1911 .45ACP.  After you have shot the course of fire with your 1911 you may shoot it with any other hand gun for an additional $5.  The stages sound colorful and challenging and should be a lot of fun!

This is one of our special matches and the cost will be $15 for club members and $30 for non-members.  We will run a cold range as always and break for lunch.  The range will be open by 9:00 and you must be present for the mandatory safety meeting at 9:30.

Our match designer, Bill M. anticipates a minimum round count of 115 (with 2 Texas Stars, I’d bring more!).  You may use 8 round magazines and can load your gun with 8 plus 1.  Some stages will require only 7 rounds per magazine. You may carry as many magazines on your person as you would like.


New Members

New Members

2016 also comes with additional regulations for new members.  These procedures will help new members make connections and friends faster and gain a better working knowledge of GTA.  This also will help GTA ensure all new members are safe shooters and aware of GTA’s rules.  If you picked up your badge and shot with us in 2015 you are considered a returning member and can sponsor and mentor new members.

Prospective members must have a sponsor and will be on probation for one year.  During this year they cannot sponsor new members themselves.  Yearly dues will be paid at the time the application is submitted.

Established members will have a different badge so new members will know who they can ask questions of and we can help them enjoy themselves more.

GTA will use a four-event-to-membership requirement.  New prospective members shall spend a total of four events/Thursdays with different members participating in club activities before becoming a member.  The first event be will be spent with their sponsor getting a safety orientation, tour and generally being shepherded about.  All the events can be as simple as shooting steel in the pit, using the rifle range or shooting a match with us.  Prospective members can participate as long as they have a mentor participating in that activity.  Their sponsor and three supporting mentors will initial and date their badge.

At the end of 4 activities the board will check to make sure the new member is a safe shooter and up to speed or if additional mentoring is needed.

GTA has never been about recruiting top elite shooters.  We are about ensuring everyone has safe, shooting fun and that GTA can continue to provide this venue for the shooting community.


Rifle Night comes alive!

The Return of Rifle Night

A monthly rifle night for MEMBERS-ONLY will be held the third Tuesday of each month starting in May.  We’ll start at 6:00 and go till dark.  You don’t have to attend every session.  Any centerfire rifle will do.  I hope you join us, rifle night is always fun.  No charge event.




Please check the GTA calendar for dates and information.  Don’t forget our three big matches.

The Single Stack Classic: July 24th  open to all .45ACP 1911 pattern shooters

The Sniper Match:  Sept 18   2 person teams, more information later

3-Gun Match:  You know what that means!  Sept 25.

More information as it becomes available!


Match Fees

Match fees

I’m looking forward to getting out and shooting and I hope you are too.  GTA is keeping the ordinary match fees the same as last year: $5 for members and $20 for non-members.  We are defining three special, fund-raising matches with different fees.

The Single Stack Classic and our 3-Gun Match will charge $15 for members and $30 for non-members.

The Sniper Match will be $40 per person or $80 for a 2 person team.


Rifle Shooting

Rifle shooting

Center fire rifle cartridges shall be fired ONLY on the rifle range with the exception of club sponsored events.  The use of any other range for testing, sighting or practice may be done with the land owner’s permission.





SEPT 09 / 2014  The floor and the front was finished on this Saturday and it looks great, Thanks for all of those that helped, (Frank, Larry, Sharon, Cody,Sandy,Rob,Ryan,Adam, hope I didn't forget anyone) Thanks to all of you.  We got all of the coraplas and shoot house wall parts in the shoot house now and need several more items moved to complete it. I will keep you informed to the progress. Thanks BBird


SEPT 2014  Fall is on the way, we will be trying to get the house up and running for this fall. The automation probably won't

be this year, but we will use static targets.  I still need some people power to finish ( see Bill for dates)

off the shoot house, making walls, hanging motors and rails, smoothing out the floor.

The drainage is complete, the grass is in and grew app 4 inches b4 winter. The ground is soft now from the rain.


Aug 17, 2014 we had a work party out and there were 13 of us setting posts, making door frame, installing siding, leveling parts of

the floor.  I still need to move all of the portable house parts over to the range. I also need another day with your help to


To all of you that helped, Guy, Marty, John, Ryan, Larry, Frank, Sandy, Will, Mike, Sarah, Heather, I want to THANK YOU

personally for your due diligence in the heat and rain showers!! Thanks for your help.


November 2013  We have finished the drainage and grass is planted, the hillsides are retainer from most erosion this winter.

I've got most of the upper framing done and will need some help with the walls, floor and possibly a ballistic wall.

**NOTE** this area is closed to all shooting for now, please keep all vehicles out of this area.

Pics to follow soon see ya in the spring


July 2013  The shoot house is coming along just fine at this time, its 30 x 30 with the possibility of 18 rooms after the portable walls are built.

For now i expect the range will be closed for another week, (if it doesn't stop raining it will be longer) before Range #1 will be usable.

This project may take 3 more weeks  if its to wet to work.

My thoughts at this time are that we take all of our portable shoot house parts and build an operational shoot house, once we are done  with the final grade excavation.

I have plans for 6 radio controlled targets, that will be hung from the ceiling, so they HOPEFULLY won't be shot!!

There will be a foul line @ 6' for Muzzle height restriction, and we will always obey the 180' rule.

More to come on the progress.  Check it out when your @ greenport.

Best regards,




GTA Concealed Carry Sticker – check for updates

One long-time goal of GTA is to have a safe facility where members can practice their CCW skills. The green and white sticker seen on some badges signify the member has his or her CCW license and has gotten permission to carry a loaded weapon concealed on the range.

GTA encourages the safe practice of CCW skills. We have a few rules you must comply with.

1 You must get permission and have your badge on.

2 Your weapon must be concealed. LEOs must display their shield to carry in any manner.

3 You may practice on any unoccupied range or as a participant in a group activity.

4 The match director/instructor/activity leader needs to be notified and has the right to make their activity a cold range requiring everyone to load on command at the firing line.

5 You may carry a concealed weapon and shoot a second weapon. For example, you could carry a .380 in a pocket holster and shoot 1911 in competition and nobody needs to know.

Do we have to say this? Unsafe activity can result in losing your membership.
