Forty-four years since its founding, the Remington Gun Club is being brought back to life. The club is only steps away from Remington’s historic ammunition factory in Lonoke, Arkansas.
The reopening of the historic club, established in 1978 and later closed by Big Green’s previous owners, comes as Remington Ammunition has restarted operations in the town just 30 minutes from Little Rock. Before its closing, the club attracted novice and competitive trap and skeet shooters from across the country. In its new iteration—and with help from the Midway USA Foundation and the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation—the club has added a 13-station sporting clays course and has another 12-station course under development. Amazingly, these are the state’s only sporting clays courses open to the public.
“Everyone at Remington is really excited to see some action on this course and put some Remington lead downrange,” said Joel Hodgdon, Remington’s Director of Marketing. “This is a remarkable facility. We have a ton of exciting events and tournaments planned for Remington fans and pros to get out here and break some clays.”
The club will offer shooting instruction and a place to try Remington shotshells, including Premier Nitro, Premier STS and Gun Club brands. In a prolonged ammunition shortage, we can well imagine that the Pro Shop will be well stocked.
Currently the club is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays.
