The shooting sports have been around Ouray County for as long as, well, as long as Ouray has been around.
The club’s archives reveal pictures of competitive shooters dating back to the early 1900’s. However, The Chief Ouray Gun Club wasn’t formed until much later in 1955.
The Chief Ouray Gun Club is comprised of ordinary Ouray County citizens, just like you. The Club itself is a member of the NRA and has been since its inception in 1955.
Our range was originally located between what is presently the Box Canyon Lodge and the Best Western Twin Peaks. In later years the Club acquired land for the current range, located just south of Ridgway.
Our humble club and range is pleased to offer something for everyone and every shooting sport. Rifles, shotguns, and handguns are all welcomed at the Chief Ouray gun Range. We regularly hold competetive shoots, women’s-only shoots as well as family-orientated activities.
We are pleased that you have joined us and look forward to a long relationship with you and your friends and family.
