What is an Ike?                 

Frederick Chapter  is big in wildlife conservation and the shooting sports for over 90 years.  We are not a gun club but have stricter rules than they do. We require a NRA range safety officer (RSO) on the range at all times. We offer this class every three months on a Sunday and new member range privileges will be limited until you take this class. We teach many other class for the public include Maryland Hunter Safety and NRA Training.  These class help us support our award winning youth program.
