Rawlins County Sportsman's Association

There will not be a RCSA Banquet this year (Feb 2022). There were too many things stacked against us, especially the rise in Covid-19 cases and low volunteer turnout. You can still buy a club membership here at The Great Outdoors Gun shop for $50 (single person membership) and $60 (family membership). We will only take check or cash for these items. Memberships are a huge revenue source for the club and is critical in allowing us to maintain and improve the facilities. You can get memberships here any time and we will start selling the next years memberships starting December 1st. The gate code will still change on the first Saturday in February.

The Great Outdoors Gun Shop works closely with the Rawlins County Sportsman's Association (RCSA) with membership sales and shoot advertisement.  Memberships are sold at the gun shop and are payable in cash or check. Dues are $50 for a single membership and $60 for a family membership. Memberships are due on the first Saturday of February at the annual RCSA banquet.


The gun range is located NW of Atwood and has several ranges available to shooters.  The handgun range is concrete from 10 yards to 25 yards with several different metal targets and also a 4'x8' target board. The main rifle range is used for several different purposes and has several covered and open benches.  There are silhouette targets used for IHMSA shoots, 100 yard, 200 yard and 300 yard target boards.  There are also several different metal targets hung at ranges from 50 yards out to 986 yards.  There is a dedicated 100 yard sight in range and a .22lr silhouette range. We have the best and longest range in the area and host many shoots during the year.  Across the road to the north of the rifle range, we have a 3 position trap range and a skeet range. 


As with any of the shoots that the RCSA has, you do not have to be a member to participate.  If you would like to observe at a shoot or two before you compete, that would be perfectly fine.  

The RCSA has their own Facebook page available here: 

Shoot times and dates may change without the gun shop knowing.  Please refer to the RCSA Facebook page or contact one of the match directors directly.
