Welcome to the website of the Western Wyoming Rifleman's Association (WWRA). Incorporated under the Wyoming Nonprofit Corporations Act, the purpose of the Association is to provide members with the common objective of fellowship and recreation and to promote participation in the shooting sports. We are dedicated to the promotion of good sportsmanship and the wise use of natural and renewable wildlife resources.
The Association seeks to disseminate useful and timely information regarding marksmanship and firearms safety and other information to our members. Additionally, the Association will establish training classes, develop and conduct small arms competitions in cooperation with the National Rifle Association and other organizations of good repute, provide speakers, and general assistance to those desiring to learn and participate in the legitimate shooting sports with special emphasis on youth involvement. The Association actively supports and encourages participation in the Wyoming State Shooting Association and the National Rifle Association.
In May of 2009 WWRA entered into a lease agreement with Lincoln County, WY for the use of 140 acres of rolling hills 25 miles south of Star Valley for the purpose of allowing WWRA to establish a permanent shooting range. Ground was broken to develop that range in June of 2010 and extensive basic construction was completed in July 2010. Thereby creating, the Coal Canyon Shooting Sports Facility which now has a 300 yard plus rifle range, two 40 yard pistol bays, a 50 yard IPSC/IDPA bay, a 50 yard .22 Long Rifle bay with firing line shelter and a law enforcement bay. A combined trap and skeet range pad has a trap house with trap machine that throws Singles, Doubles and Wobbles. Skeet high and low houses are partly built and should be completed in early summer 2016. A firing line shelter with concrete floor, 8 shooting benches and windbreak walls enhances the rifle range. Portable out houses are on site. No electricity or running water on site. Development of other Range facilities will proceed as funding and resources become available.
Most Range features are available for use by properly trained/qualified club members 7 days a week when not under construction or reserved for special user groups (See Calendar and Range Facility Usage Procedures - Training section). The Range is opened to drop-in public on days when Range Safety Officers can be present at the facility. A nominal daily use fee is charged for non members. At the county's direction, the Range is closed to all vehicular traffic, including snowmobiles, for the winter months - December 1 to May 1. Public entities such as Boy Scouts, law enforcement and U.S. Military are able to use the facility by arrangement without charge.
We hope you will consider joining the Western Wyoming Rifleman's Association
and help us reach our goals.
