About this range:

The Bay County Shooting Range features supervised rifle and handgun ranges as well as sporting clays, 5-stand and 3D archery. The range was established in 2014 by Bay County to provide its citizens a place to gain skills and knowledge for safe, responsible firearms handling and target shooting. It was developed through the vision of the Bay County Board of County Commissioners. Contributing partners include the National Rifle Association and the FWC.
