I am new to this site and noticed that my club information has not been updated. I am letting everyone know that Aurora Sportmen's Club has moved to a large facility that allows you to shoot anything legal in Illinois. We have rifle/pistol ranges from 50ft to 600yd, Trap, Skeet, 5-stand, Sporting Clays, and Archery fields. We have public events and members have 365 days/year access. I have read some posts on this site and you guys look like my kind of people. Hope to see you on the range.

Yes, the 600 yd range has even been used to fire mortars. We have the berms about 1? times higher than the NRA specs so it's quite easy to find the club among the corn and soybean fields. Check out the pictures on our website at http://www.aurorasc.org

Last month's mortar firing got rained out. There is a group of Civil War buffs that are going to shoot off some mortars at the end of this month. Hopefully someone will download pictures to our website so I can share the sight.

Zombie shooting range, that's fantastic, funny, but cool.



Combine that with shooting mortars and sounds like a really cool place. If I ever get up that way I am going to go there.

The Zombie shoot is very popular and reservations have previously filled up within hours of availability. If you look at the video, you will see part of the club and some of our members because it was shot on location. If you look in the photo gallery, you will find aerial photos that are about a year old. The photos don't show the Sporting Clays course which is across the road just below our small lake. The 50 ft. and 25 yd. ranges have now been divided by concrete block dividers to allow for special events and member shooting at the same time. Each range is about 100 yds. wide. The divided range bays are 25 yds. wide. Gives us plenty of room to be safe and have fun.
