Due to the number of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations across the country and locally, Linn County has closed most buildings to the public to help reduce community spread of the virus and to help ensure continuity of County services.
The Matsell Bridge Shooting Range, located at 200 Range Lane, Central City, Iowa features a 200, 100, and the pistol only 50 and 15-yard ranges. The 50-yard range was developed in partnership with the Linn County Sheriff's Department, Marion Police Department and Linn County Pistol Club. The 50-yard range is occasionally reserved for law enforcement training or Pistol Club public shoots.
A permit is required to use the range. Ranges and shooting stations are available on a first come-first serve basis.

Annual permits for the calendar year are available for purchase online for $40. Once registration has been submitted, you will receive a confirmation email. This email is your permit. You must print and have this email on you while shooting at the range.
