    An excellent claysports facility with a large and active membership, though it is not a for-profit operation– it would be fairest to say that the club welcomes visitors but is not oriented toward the visitor. There is no staff or signage to welcome a guest, for example. You park, and ask around.

    The trap and skeet programs are more member-oriented, and are year round. The newly expanded 15-station Sporting program welcomes visitors and runs about nine months a year, generally on Saturday mornings with a switch to Sundays during the hunting season. The course is set largely in wooded terrain, with most shots less than 30 yards, but quite impressive– Bristol hosted several NSCA shoots in 2020. You’ll see 110s, midis, and rabbits, and a few stations are shot from towers. During warm weather, the Sporting program attracts 100+ shooters a week. Traps are automatic, and stations are tweaked every few weeks to keep the course challenging and fresh. There is no form of pro shop– you cannot buy ammo or accessories of any sort as a nonmember. The trails are golf-cart/ATV friendly.

    The overall atmosphere on the Sporting course is socially relaxed yet with pretty strict adherence to gun safety protocols. Squads self-score and self-trap. The calibre of shooter is variable, but with a healthy number of serious shooters.

    Yes, there is a cozy old-style tavern, though the sign at the door reads “if you’ve ordered a shot, you’ve taken your last shot of the day”, so safety requirements are fully observed.

    I was the guest of Tony Celello. This club is very active, well groomed, and a well kept range. Based on the parking lot size, you can tell this is a huge operation. It has 3 dedicated traps and one combo field all set up for night shooting. I counted 100 shooters returning from a sporting clays walk. Everything’s top notch. You can eat off the 1 skeet range. It also has a huge 2 story meeting hall that houses a genuine tavern in the basement. For those high class shooters accustom to this practice, you’ll be right at home. But for shooters brought up with being taught to never mix drinking with guns, it may shock you when the smell of liquor floats across the parking lot. I would certainly return here as a guest again. Get someone to sponsor you and come visit them. You’ll be impressed.
