Effective immediately, the Department has restricted use of the Summerhaven (Augusta) Shooting Area to time periods when an approved Range Safety Officer is present (see schedule below). This restriction has been enacted to help ensure safe shooting practices at the site.

  • 7/28/2019 - Range Construction Update - To Stop Rumors - Summer Haven Remains Closed at this Time. Construction is nearly finished and the STATE continues to work with the Contractor to ACCEPT the Range from the Contractor but the progress has been extremely slow. We know the public is as ready to use the Range as we are to use the Range; but until the Range is accepted by the State and under our control it is not Open. We do not have a date nor will we speculate a date that this time.
