It is with great sadness I announce the death of Benchrest Shooters Board Member John Easterbrook. He had been suffering from cancer for awhile, and it finally took him. John was a great help while we were building the range, and a friend. He taught me much about construction, including how to level a pad with just 4 stakes and some twine. He was the first RSO trainer and scheduler.
We shall miss his good advice in that gravelly voice. Please hold his memory close, and celebrate his life. Our condolences to Lynda.
As information about a service becomes available, I will share it.
The White Mountain Shooters Association (WMSA) hosts a wide variety of shooting organizations, both competitive and non-competitive. These clubs welcome new shooters whether you like to compete or just want to see what it’s like. To learn more about a particular club, click one of the links below.
About Second Knoll Target Range
The Second Knoll Target Range is a nationwide model for range design in the National Forest. It’s a joint venture between the Arizona Game and Fish Department, the National Forest Service, ADOT, and the White Mountain Shooters Association.
Second Knoll Target Range is open for public use on Saturday, Sunday, and Monday (weather permitting). See footer for winter and summer hours. The range is under the control of trained volunteer Range Safety Officers whose primary goal is to insure that everyone remains safe.
We currently offer a 100-yard all-purpose range for public use for rifles and pistols. The range complex also offers other facilities that are available through affiliated club activities. These are a 50-yard ”bullseye” pistol range equipped with turning targets and four 25-yard training and competition bays. The 50-yard range and competition bays are also available for rent for private events.
Our range is a public range under the auspices of the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The department has 11 ranges throughout the state and ours is consistently ranked in the top 3. Moreover, we aren’t done. Future plans include a 300-yard range, a clubhouse, a classroom, and a resident caretaker.
Join us. Come on out and shoot in the great outdoors!
