New Shooting Range?

The last few times I drove north to Coeur d’Alene, Idaho I noticed a sign on hwy 95 touting a shooting range.  This last time I noted the name and the location; Moses Mtn Shooting Range near mile post 391, just outside of Plummer.  Can’t find anything on the interwebs so I’ll just have to drive up there to check it out.

We sure need more shooting ranges around here.  A nice big, 500 or 1,000 yard rifle range would be sweet.

  1. It is an old rock pit. Some folks from Plummer and Tensed started a range at the Four Corners outside of Tensed(at the base of Moses Mountain), but the neighbors complained so they moved to the site on Watt Hill and kept the name. One of the people that organized this range also does a little gun work for me so I will have to ask him if they have any shelters built yet. I just step out the door to shoot, maybe I need to make the effort to drive the 8 miles to this range. My sis and her husband have a position at the boomershoot and I will be there Sunday.

  2. There is also a Cowboy Action club from St.Maries that has a range with props, on Plummer Creek. It is about 2 mi. east of Plummer. The property was sold recently so I don’t know what the status is.

  3. I’m not terribly concerned about shelters. Shelters are for abused spouses, the homeless, the infirmed, and for stray animals. Judging from the nice sign on the highway, I was expecting to find a web site detailing the membership requirements. Any idea what distances they get at the Moses Mtn range?

  4. I’ve heard gongs at 600+ yards. But I’ve not been, so just hearsay.

  5. Sounds like the sign might be the only improvement worth mention. The range is 100 yds. for rifles, with a shooting bench and also a pistol range. The city of Plummer owns the property, so I don’t know what improvements will be allowed. I was invited to a meeting later this week. They are looking for help getting this range going. The Plummer Rifle Club used to shoot indoor smallbore in the basement of the community center. We had people from Spokane, Coeur d’Alene, and Moscow who would rather shoot with Plummer than their own local clubs. Some of them were very good and the team was nationally ranked a couple of years before I started shooting with them. It took me about 5 years to be able to shoot a masters score consistently and contribute to the team. The recession of 81-83 caused many of us to look for work out of the area and the club folded a few years later. Now shooting in city limits has been banned.
