Important Update – Please Read

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and in order to comply with New Mexico’s Red to Green Framework, there are currently restrictions on mass gatherings.  Torrance County is currently green, so gatherings are limited to 20 people.

The monthly club meetings are still currently cancelled, as the Town of Edgewood has closed the community center for now.

This announcement will be updated as we have additional information to share.  

The range is currently only open to casual shooters. Selected events are now open as well, see the calendar for event details.  Keep in mind that further restrictions may arise, and events are not guaranteed to remain open. 

Please remember to continue practicing social distancing, and take care of yourselves and your families during this unprecedented situation.

The New Mexico Big Horn Gun Club (NMBHGC) was founded by several local black powder shooters in 1977. The club is a non-profit organization, and is an NRA affiliated club. Club membership is open to the public, and new members are always welcomed. Our members come from all surrounding communities, including Edgewood, Moriarty, Tijeras, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

The purpose of the NMBHGC is to promote the shooting sports and to provide a safe range facility for the enjoyment of its membership. The club sponsors various special events and activities throughout the year, including it’s annual black powder rendezvous, “The Cache Le Plew.”
