  • Junior Programs (Air Rifle, Air Pistol, Smallbore, Shotgun)
Facilities include a 50 foot indoor range, a shotgun range, and a 50 and 100 yard outdoor ranges.

The Lafayette Gun Club fosters the development of patriotism, honesty, good fellowship, self-discipline, team play, self reliance and personal responsibility.
