Michigan DNR closes outdoor shooting at both Island Lake Shooting Range and Bald Mountain Shooting Range, events prior to April 13, 2020 cancelled/postponed

LAKE ORION, MICHIGAN — In accordance with Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services’ recommendations designed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has mandated that Michigan Shooting Centers close our outdoor shooting to the public and cancel all events and tournaments scheduled between now and April 13, 2020.

Michigan Shooting Centers will be closed until further notice. All outdoor shooting at Island Lake Shooting Range in Brighton and Bald Mountain Shooting Range will be closed to the public and our gun store will be closed to walk-ins.

The following two events will be impacted by the written mandate:

  • March 22, 2020 – NSCA 75 FITASC & 50 5-Stand tournament at Bald Mountain Shooting Range. This event will be cancelled. Our next NSCA 75 FITASC & 50 5-Stand tournament is scheduled for April 19th.
  • April 4-5, 2020 – NSCA Great Lakes Sporting Clays Championship tournament at Island Lake Shooting Range. This event will be postponed to a later date.

All decisions made at the DNR executive level are mandates which we are required to follow here at Michigan Shooting Centers under the terms of our lease agreement.

Our employees are essential to us and Michigan Shooting Centers would not be the gun store and range it has become without the best employees and the most faithful customers. We appreciate you and value your safety.

We will continue processing existing and delayed transactions during this time. All customers that are on delay will be called and asked to schedule an appointment once they have been given a proceed. We will not be accepting any new sales. During this time, we will still be answering our emails, taking deliveries, fulfilling and shipping online orders, and answering our direct gun store phone number (248-564-3640).

While the circumstances continue to change and we modify our operations as necessary, we thank you for your patience and cooperation. As new developments occur, be assured we are committed to taking care of our members and employees and to our mission of providing safe, fun, family oriented and educational shooting environments. We extend our sincere thanks to our customers and employees for their ongoing support and loyal dedication during this challenging time.

Please take this time to stay home and stay healthy.
