But, it is a good time to come out and get a good zero for that long range rifle.

General: Bring your own snacks and water. Volunteers are encouraged to car pool and park as many vehicles as possible in the 600 yard line parking area. If personal vehicles interfere with running the clinic smoothly, we will require all vehicles to be left at the 600 yard line.
Directions: All volunteers must enter the post through Chaffee Gate. After clearing the gate, drive down Bullion to Eisenhower and turn right and go under the railroad tracks to the traffic light and turn left onto Brandenburg Road. Continue down Brandenburg Road to Frazier Road (just after the railroad tracks), turn right onto Frazier Road and go to the four way stop at Wilson Road, go straight through the intersection and travel down Main Range Road past French Range. Continue down Main Range Road and go down an extremely steep hill. At the base of the hill turn left onto Porter River Road, follow Porter River Road across the bridge to the first gate on the right, turn right and go up the steep hill on the gravel road.
Gate Procedures: Have a government issued picture ID and a match program ready when arriving at the gate. Tell the gate guards you are traveling to the rifle match. Your vehicle may be searched and you may be asked for vehicle registration and proof of insurance papers. This happens to everyone entering the post whose vehicle is not registered on Fort Knox, not just people with firearms. It will be extremely helpful to be cooperative and polite when answering all questions from the guards. Unless on official law enforcement business, Fort Knox considers all peace officers as civilians and thus subject to all these requirements.
CAUTION: These matches are held on a U.S. military installation and all personnel will be subject to all applicable federal laws and military regulations when traveling on post. Concealed Carry Permits are not valid on federal installations and carrying concealed weapons of any kind on Ft. Knox is against federal law and military regulations. Volunteers should arrive at Fort Knox early to process through the gate and arrive at the match promptly.
