RANGE CLOSURE NOTICE

Patrons of the San Jose Municipal Firing Range,

In order to meet our pending lease termination deadline, we are notifying range patrons that the San Jose Municipal Firing Range (SJMFR) has terminated public hours effective Friday, 30 August, 2019 at 9:30 p.m. at the conclusion of public hours. The Board of Directors and all of the members of the Santa Clara Valley Rifle club (SCVRC) thank you for your patronage.

As you may know this range has been operated for the last 35+ years by volunteer members of the Santa Clara Valley Rifle Club as a service to the City of San Jose and area shooting enthusiast. SCVRC was established in 1928 making it one of the oldest shooting clubs in the United States with a long proud history of promoting responsible and safe firearms ownership and shooting activity. The closure of this range is a loss on many fronts to the community, the citizens of the Bay Area, the many patrons of the SJMFR and the loyal members of SCVRC. The range provided services to a wide and diverse audience including youth shooters, the LGBTQ community and many other groups at affordable rates in a safe and friendly venue.

The City of San Jose is preparing for an expansion of the San Jose Ice facility adjacent to the range. The Club has requested alterations to the proposed building plans or access to alternate San Jose properties. Unfortunately, at this time the City of San Jose Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services is no longer interested in continuing to support the shooting sports and the unique opportunity for firearm safe handling training that the Club has provided at this location.

We will attempt to accommodate some of the groups such as Action Pistol, Outreach, and the Juniors program who use the range in September and possibly into October; if you participate in one of these groups you should check with the group leader to determine if your activity is still supported.

SCVRC will continue to operate as a club but regrettably no longer at this location as our home base. We will update our website with additional information of interest and future plans. Please note that we anticipate disconnecting the range telephone landline shortly after public hours end; a new telephone number for the Club will be published on our website in due course.
Thank you again for all your years of patronage and helping to make the SJMFR one of the safest places to shoot in the Bay Area.

Regards,

Board of Directors
