**PLEASE READ: Use of firearms are inherently dangerous & could result in severe injury or death. We will not tolerate unsafe shooters, persons, behavior or illegal weapons on the range. **

*** Greenport is a Muzzle down range, meaning unless your weapon is on a target the muzzle must be holstered or in the low position pointing the muzzle at the ground.


*Please maintain this position with all shooters as if we have an AD then the bullet needs to be kept in this range, NO exception!! We need to practice this so our neighbors will be safe and we can continue to shoot here.

*CHAMBER FLAGS will be required when long guns are not in your POSITIVE control.

*NO LOADING OF ANY WEAPON, UNLESS YOU ARE ON THE FIRING LINE. ALL WEAPONS WILL BE UNLOADED IN A SAFE AREA, OR ON THE FIRING LINE. If you are in a private class you will need to follow the instructors wishes whether its a cold range or a hot range for their class only! This is the instructors discretion.

Greenport is machinegun friendly, nothing bigger than 40 mil. Please do not bring illegal weapons onto this range. Bring your paperwork with your weapon as I may want to see it.


Wishes For Warriors

Everyone says they want to do more for veterans with disabilities but most of us don’t know how.  Well, now you can fix that!

Hardline Tactical Training is running a benefit for Wishes for Warriors, Sunday May 3rd at GTA.

The fun will begin at 9am and go until 5pm and a donation of $50 will get you into action all day.  This will be a safe, family friendly event, kids under 12 are free, 12-17 are $15 for the day.  Come for the day or just a few hours, it’s going to be fun!

GTA is a cold range, guns may be loaded only at the firing point.  Long guns will need an ECI or be returned to its case before they are removed from the firing point.  We’ll have ECI for sale if you need one.

HTT will have a few local instructors doing some mini clinics through the day, food, games and a raffle for a handgun.  .

Of course there will have some fun stuff set up to shoot as well as the clinics throughout the day. Bring out all your guns!!!  GTA has ranges out to 200 yards with steel targets to shoot at.

PLEASE, NO STEEL CORE AMMO!!! You may bring it to shoot at paper targets, just not at the steel.

There will be food and drinks available for sale and I’ve been assured the proceeds will go to Wishes For Warriors

Who are Wishes For Warriors?

Wishes For Warriors is a 100% non profit organization dedicated to helping returning combat veterans with disabilities live out their passions.  They take the veterans on fishing and hunting trips, range trips, skydiving, etc.  They go above and beyond to show the vets they are not forgotten and that disabilities don't have to hold you back.  The company is veteran run, and is done FOR FREE. They run strictly on donations, and all money goes to help the vets.

Stay up to date on the event with Hardline Tactical Training facebook page.


Nice Job Ben!!!!


Long Guns

Rifle night returns times two

One of several benefits available only to GTA members is rifle night.  It’s free to members only and you are encouraged to bring any centerfire combat style rifle or carbine and participate.  We will have two sessions, 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month.  We will start May 12 at 6:00pm and run until we’ve had enough.  What do you need?  Eye and ear protection, ECI, ammo.  I’d bring water and a flashlight as well as the optional side arm.  You need not attend all or both nights to participate.

Thanks Scott, for volunteering for rifle night!

Scatter guns tonight

We’ve had requests for more shotgun.  We can do that.  We will have two shotgun nights scheduled for Thursday evenings, June11 and Aug 13. Please no steel shot on metal targets, it bounces back too much!  You’ll need a shotgun, ammo, buck or bird, NO SLUG,  eye and ear protection, ECI and some place to carry extra shells.  More information and check our facebook pages for changes!

A tip of the hat to Larry for stepping up and setting up courses of fire!


GTA work Parties

Work Parties

If we can get a dozen people we should be able to make short work of all of this.  Come for an hour or four.  Any time you can donate will be appreciated!   There are the two we have scheduled to get the range open and ready.

April 18  Shoot house set up work party  9am-1pm

May 2 Range set up work   9am-1pm

SEPT 09 / 2014  The floor and the front was finished on this Saturday and it looks great, Thanks for all of those that helped, (Frank, Larry, Sharon, Cody,Sandy,Rob,Ryan,Adam, hope I didn't forget anyone) Thanks to all of you.  We got all of the coraplas and shoot house wall parts in the shoot house now and need several more items moved to complete it. I will keep you informed to the progress. Thanks BBird


SEPT 2014  Fall is on the way, we will be trying to get the house up and running for this fall. The automation probably won't

be this year, but we will use static targets.  I still need some people power to finish ( see Bill for dates)

off the shoot house, making walls, hanging motors and rails, smoothing out the floor.

The drainage is complete, the grass is in and grew app 4 inches b4 winter. The ground is soft now from the rain.


Aug 17, 2014 we had a work party out and there were 13 of us setting posts, making door frame, installing siding, leveling parts of

the floor.  I still need to move all of the portable house parts over to the range. I also need another day with your help to


To all of you that helped, Guy, Marty, John, Ryan, Larry, Frank, Sandy, Will, Mike, Sarah, Heather, I want to THANK YOU

personally for your due diligence in the heat and rain showers!! Thanks for your help.


November 2013  We have finished the drainage and grass is planted, the hillsides are retainer from most erosion this winter.

I've got most of the upper framing done and will need some help with the walls, floor and possibly a ballistic wall.

**NOTE** this area is closed to all shooting for now, please keep all vehicles out of this area.

Pics to follow soon see ya in the spring


July 2013  The shoot house is coming along just fine at this time, its 30 x 30 with the possibility of 18 rooms after the portable walls are built.

For now i expect the range will be closed for another week, (if it doesn't stop raining it will be longer) before Range #1 will be usable.

This project may take 3 more weeks  if its to wet to work.

My thoughts at this time are that we take all of our portable shoot house parts and build an operational shoot house, once we are done  with the final grade excavation.

I have plans for 6 radio controlled targets, that will be hung from the ceiling, so they HOPEFULLY won't be shot!!

There will be a foul line @ 6' for Muzzle height restriction, and we will always obey the 180' rule.

More to come on the progress.  Check it out when your @ greenport.

Best regards,




GTA Concealed Carry Sticker – check for updates

One long-time goal of GTA is to have a safe facility where members can practice their CCW skills. The green and white sticker seen on some badges signify the member has his or her CCW license and has gotten permission to carry a loaded weapon concealed on the range.

GTA encourages the safe practice of CCW skills. We have a few rules you must comply with.

1 You must get permission and have your badge on.

2 Your weapon must be concealed. LEOs must display their shield to carry in any manner.

3 You may practice on any unoccupied range or as a participant in a group activity.

4 The match director/instructor/activity leader needs to be notified and has the right to make their activity a cold range requiring everyone to load on command at the firing line.

5 You may carry a concealed weapon and shoot a second weapon. For example, you could carry a .380 in a pocket holster and shoot 1911 in competition and nobody needs to know.

Do we have to say this? Unsafe activity can result in losing your membership.



Change in Match Fees

Match Fees

GTA constantly strives to make membership a super bargen, with this in mind we are lower member's match fees and increasing the number of member-only activities.

New Match Fees:

With the exception of specialty matches (like the single stack classic and the 3-gun) all pistol matches will charge:

Members            $5.00

Non-Members  $20.00

Specialty matches:  To be announced.

This is the current match line up:

The regular matches will be held on Sundays for the following dates: May 17 (IDPA Classifier), June 14, Aug 16, and Oct 18 (IDPA Classifier).

The Single Stack Classic is scheduled for July 19 and Sept 20 will be a 3 gun match.  We hope to announce more matches so check the website and our Facebook page

In addition to the change in match fees, we will be scheduling a lunch break from approximately 11:45 to 12:30.  Food will be available to purchase, you don’t have eat, you don’t have to buy, but you will stop and take a break.






We’ve never had a problem, and we will not have any in the future. GTA will continue to be a safe shooting environment where we can enjoy shooting. We will not tolerate any kind of horseplay or shooting stunts. I will not allow some putz with a gun to ruin GTA for everyone.

Eye and ear protection are mandatory for members, guests and match participants. We will remain a muzzle down range. Reloads with your pistol muzzle pointed over the backstop is not tolerated. Discharge a weapon over the backstop and you’re gone. Safe the kool stuff you see on TV and in video games for someone else’s range.

GTA will continue to be a cold range. You may not load your weapon until you’re on the firing line and you have been authorized to do so.

Don’t like it? Great, start your own club.


Safety is our number one rule.
