The Fort Valley Gun Club is an NRA Affiliated organization dedicated to primarily Rifle & Pistol shooting events. Our mission is to promote gun safety and awareness at the same time that we enjoy friendly but spirited shooting competitions. While we are a membership club, all monthly competitions are OPEN TO THE PUBLIC! (We have the only 350 yard Buffalo Rifle Silhouette Match in Middle GA) Please visit our "Matches & Results" page for scheduled matches, match fees and rules. Everyone is welcome regardless of their experience level. SAFETY is paramount and all safety rules are enforced for everyone's protection. A "Porta-Potty" is on site for your convenience. Bring your own food, water or soft drinks as none is available on site.
