Frequently Asked Questions:


What are your hours of operation?

There are no set hours of operation, however night shooting is prohibited unless approved specifically by the Board of Directors as part of a sanctioned event.  Shooting hours begin ½ hour before sunrise and end ½ hour after sunset.  Members have access to the range by use of the key card they are issued when they purchase a membership.


How do I become a member?

All the information pertaining to membership cost and where they can be purchased can be found at the following link:  http://www.gatecityssa.org/memberships.html


Can I use the range without becoming a member?

The way our range operates, you would either have to be a guest of a range member, or purchase a membership yourself.  The range is controlled access by an electronic gate.  Only members have key cards.  Members can accompany guests who then pay a $5 guest fee .  There will not be a range employee there to let you in or help you access everything.


I have lost my key.  How do I get a replacement?

We have revised our key card replacement policy with the transition to an electronic gate system.  The new replacement policy is as follows:

Members who lose, misplace, or have their card stolen should notify the GCSSA by one of three methods:

  1. Email gatecityssa@gmail.com
  2. Attend a GCSSA meeting on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 pm
  3. Send a letter by U.S. Mail to:

                    GCSSA
                    P.O. Box 4862
                    Pocatello, ID  83205


Notification should explain the circumstances of the loss, and include the member name and key card number.  Lost, stolen, or misplaced key cards may be replaced at the discretion of the Board of Directors for a fee that is equal to one-half the current annual membership rate.  If the Board agrees to replace the key card, instructions for submittal of the replacement fee will be sent to the member, or payment will be expected at the Board meeting attended.  The old key card will be deactivated.

Can I reserve a bay?

Shooting bays are on a first-come, first-served basis and cannot be reserved by members.  Bays may be reserved only for shooting events that have been approved by the Board.  Board approved events will be placed on the GCSSA event calendar.  Most calendared events are scheduled at the annual scheduling meeting that takes place each February.  During this meeting, scheduling of events can be requested.  Shooting disciplines that have been officially recognized by the Board have first priority.
