An Exclusive Shooting Organization & Private Range Facility

Concealed Carry Class

We Conduct & Promote Safe Firearms Use

We’re proud to practice and encourage recreational shooting to maintain the rights bestowed to us by the Constitution’s Second Amendment.


The Escambia River Gun Club (ERGC), originally established as the Escambia River Muzzle Loaders (ERML), is a private club intended for its members and guests. Since 1978, our organization has prided itself at providing a safe, first-class shooting facility that can be used for family outings, friendly competition, sighting your rifle, or just relaxing via recreational shooting.

Our 22-acre facility features over 60 covered shooting stalls across ten separate firing ranges, and an NRA-certified Range Safety Officer (RSO) is always on-site.

The Range is generally CLOSED on Mondays, but we may be open on Mondays that are Federal Holidays. The Range is CLOSED on Easter, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.

If unusual circumstances (such as inclement weather) cause us to CLOSE the Range unexpectedly, it will be posted on the ERGC Facebook page. Note: You don’t have to use Facebook to see our recent posts, they are available at the bottom of this page.

“Best shooting range in the area. Allows drawing from the holster, rapid fire, movement, etc.”

Charlie Swartz, via Facebook

“Awesome place enjoy each time we go. Everyone very nice and helps when needed.”

Dolores LeClair, via Facebook

“Had a good time today. Was able to help a buddy dial in new scope on his hunting rifle. He was able to shoot as my guest for $10 and after looking the place over is thinking about joining. Range Safety Officers are friendly and not in the way. We had a good experience here today!”

Tony House, via Facebook

“If you’re looking to be treated like adults and seek reasonable freedom this is the place. I have been going here for awhile and love it compared to the high priced other local ranges. Clean bathrooms and fun responsible atmosphere.”

Shawn T., via Facebook
“My biggest regret is we had not joined sooner. We look forward to taking part in some the events and definitely look forward to shooting steel.”
Johnny Salaza, via Facebook
“Great place to shoot. If you want to shoot slow, fine. But if you want to rapid fire and or practice drawing from the holster, this is the place to do it. Most ranges will not allow that. Plenty types of shooting matches to chose from. IDPA, cowboy, military, and a Ladies only match too. If you like shooting and moving, come to the IDPA match.”
Gordon Leaf, via Facebook
“We absolutely love it at ERGC! The people (staff and members alike) are all genuine and friendly. All of the RSOs we’ve met so far are so knowledgeable and very helpful! We highly recommend ERGC!”
Will and Marilyn Cottingham, via Facebook

“We brought our whole family today and it was great! Staff is friendly and very welcoming to our 2 kids (ages 4 and 6). Excited to have a year membership and go often.”

Rachel Sarhalar, via Facebook
“I like this gun club a lot, been member almost a year and will definitely renew my membership. With new stuff coming I am excited.”

Range 2 is now sporting new hot(red)/cold(blue) range lights as a visual reminder. Verbal procedures remain unchanged. They can be switched with a push button on the box. Currently only 2 push buttons but all boxes will have a button by the end of the week. Let us know what you think. ... See MoreSee Less

In my opinion, makes sense especially in the bigger ranges. I can remember screaming to the other end asking for range status or requesting to go cold when no one was shooting but folks had ear protection on. As you expect, safety is paramount but I think these lights will increase situational awareness. Verbal procedures always. Thank you.

I don't care for them. They're exposed so it may be an ongoing maintenance issue. I like verbal and other shooter verbal and visual confirmation.

Great process improvement trial! Thanks for listening to member suggestions!

People need to be reminded that once Cold or Red they shall not approach the benches, touch or handle weapons at anytime or when they pull up, set up their weapons. I've seen this more than anything else

When cold range occurs do you have to disarm the weapons?

No work allowed in FLORIDA unless it's 65 degrees or higher. Unwritten rule for Florida. 😆 Volunteer day is supposed to be fun way to get large projects started. Not a slave driving event in 46 degree weather with potential rain. Sorry guy's. I take full responsibility for not being a slave driver. My name is Comon Sense. Have a great weekend ERGC family.

Is the range open on Sunday?

Range open for MLK day?

I did try to shoot there. The office attendant said I had to pay a full year membership and do not do day shooters. How do I know I want to become a member if I can’t test the range? Went back to Santa Rosa gun club!

Thank you
