Shooting Ranges in Maryland
To Maryland shooters and hunters,
Do you enjoy shooting for the joy of it? Need a place to improve your proficiency with that trusty compound bow, or sight-in that new rifle you gave yourself as a present for being so good this year? Perhaps you are looking for a place to safely teach your spouse how to properly handle a handgun? This edition of Shooting Ranges In Maryland will help you find just what you are looking for.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources and its shooting range committee have come a long way in our efforts to expand shooting opportunities in Maryland. Grants totaling $165,000 have been awarded to 44 private and public ranges throughout the state to improve public access! In addition, two new public ranges have been built in Garrett and Carroll counties. Our goal and commitment to you remains the same: to provide reasonable access to as many ranges as possible so you have a safe, convenient place to go to hone your skills and enjoy your sport.
Whether it is archery, shotgun, muzzle loader, rifle or handgun you prefer, always remember to think and practice safety. Should you have any ideas on how we might improve this brochure to better serve you in the future, please contact us at the address below.
The Maryland Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife and Heritage Service and the DNR Shooting Range Committee (an ad hoc citizens advisory group) hope your experiences at these range sites are enjoyable.
