Crosse Creek Rifle and Pistol Club located at:

3229 Bloosom Road, Hope Mills NC 28348.

Special notes about the range:
1- Crosse Creek Rifle and Pistol Club is a private range for members and their guess.
2- If you arrive at the range and the gate is open, enter the range and make an immediate left and follow signs to range 3.
3- If you arrive at the range and the gate is closed, pull up to the gate then pull off to the left and park so not to block the gate.  Give me a call and I will move up to the gate and let you in.  DO NOT CLIMB OVER OR WIGGLE YOUR WAY THROUGH THE GATE.  Remember, the range is private property and monitored with over a dozen security camera's. It might take me a few minutes to come up to the gate if i am in the middle of qualifying someone.  If i don't answer, wait 5 minutes and call again.
4- The speed limit on the range is 5 mph.

5- When you arrive at Range 3, pull up to the wood fense and park.  Take the following actions depending on how you are transporting your firearm:

     - If your firearm is in a holster on your belt, simply secure the extra magazines and ammo and proceed to the covered benches behind the firing line. Do not take the firearm out of the holster,

     - If your firearm is in a bag, carry the bag to to the covered benches behind the firing line.  Do not take the firearm out or handle the firearm, just leave it secured in the bag.

     - If your firearm is not in a bag, holster or container.  Leave the firearm in the vehicle and move up to the covered benches.  We will wait until the range is hot before you remove the firearm from the vehicle and move it up to the range.

     ** When in doubt, leave it in the vehicle and come up and ask.
