Belfast Range in Kinards, South Carolina

Kinards, South Carolina - In May we told you about the opening of the Belfast Range in Kinards. Belfast was the first range built through the NRA Public Range Fund Grant Program, a project that encourages local and state agencies to work with NRA in order to build or improve public ranges across the United States. And tomorrow we'll be back for more.


Shooters and officials gather around the NRA's Electronic Target system from ShotResonse on NRAblog Kankakee, Illinois - The Electronic Target Event at the Illinois State Rifle Association's (ISRA) range had a little Camp Perry in it ... at lot of happy shooters and a touch of weather to spice things up. Members of ISRA shot along side of NRA President David Keene, Executive Director of General Operations Kayne Robinson and ISRA President Richard Peterson from ten to five on Saturday.

"It was pretty wild," said one member. "Seeing where you hit right after pulling the trigger, that was great."

Brought to the United States by ShotResponse through their parent company SIUS Electronic Target and Scoring Systems in Switzerland, this is the same company responsible for the electronic targets they'll be using in London for the Olympic Games in 2012. Not too shabby for an afternoon shoot in Illinois.


Port Clinton, Ohio - Tomorrow at the Illinois State Rifle Association's home range, the National Rifle Association will be pulling out the electronic target systems for the second weekend in a row. Seen to the right powering up after the National Defense Match in Camp Perry, the event in Illinois will be a little different.

Powered by ShotResponse, the system provides instant results to every shot fired down range. At the Illinois event, the competition will take place on a 100 yard range and is sure to be filled with plenty of anxious and excited competitors.

Unfortunately, time has passed for anyone looking to register online for the event, but there is still limited on-site registration available if you'd like to give it a go.

There will be one more Electronic Target Event this year at South Carolina's Belfast Range on October 1. For more information, please contact NRA Range Services at (877) NRA RANGE or email
