JULY 27, 2020 UPDATENEW MANDATORY RESERVATION SYSTEM & OTHER RESTRICTIONS IN PLACE

The Joe Foss Shooting Complex (JFR) will reopen to the Public starting Friday, May 1st.  As in the past, JFR will be open to the Public Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7:30 AM to 1:30 PM but with new restrictions.

Out of concerns for the health and safety of both patrons and JFR volunteers, a new, temporary, mandatory reservation system, as well as other social distancing-related restrictions, have been put into place.  To best help implement social distancing guidelines it is asked that persons do not come to JFR unless they have a pre-paid reservation.  Persons who do not have a pre-paid reservation will not be able to use the range.

Please visit Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association (ASRPA) for complete information, including how to make reservations.
