Pirus Road Range ProjectIn 2010, TCSC on the task of making major improvements to the public shooting range on Pirus Road west of Medford. This project was initiated In response to adjacent property owner’s concern. The Pirus Road range is on county property, but our board of director’s feel it is important enough to improve this facility for all sportsmen, sportswomen and youth in the area.

Recent modifications include berming the shooting lane and adding six sound deafening tubes which contain the muzzle of the firearm during discharge to drastically reduce sound pollution. Tree plantings are also underway to stabilize the new construction and create an even better sound barrier. Thank you to those key individual who put in many, many hours on this project. Your hard work has been for the benefit of ALL area sportsmen and women. Thank you!
