Current layout of rifle range.

While shooting will resume on these public ranges, current staffing levels (due to non-medical resignations), existing conditions at KHSC, and the anticipated high demand for this popular outdoor range will result in temporary changes to operations for the firearm ranges:

  • Pistol and rifles ranges will operate as one firing line, due to damaged separation wall
  • Firearm ranges open on weekends, Saturdays & Sundays, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Free online reservations required to book 1 hour 20-minute shooting slot:
    • Conducted online using the pros.hnl.info website
    • Reservations open five days in advance at 8 a.m. (HST). For instance, on opening day (April 29), reservations will be available beginning 8 a.m. Monday, April 24
    • One non-transferable reservation per person, per day for both ranges
    • Photo identification and proof of reservation required (on phone or printed)
    • Five timeslots available for 18 pistol and 27 rifle firing lanes:
      • 8 a.m. – 9:20 a.m.
      • 9:35 a.m. – 10:55 a.m.
      • 11:10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
      • 12:45 p.m. – 2:05 p.m.
      • 2:20 p.m. – 3:40 p.m.
    • Three rifle and two pistol firing lanes will be made available for walk-ins, those unable to secure a reservation, and those without computer / internet access.
    • Each shooting timeslot will consist of three shooting relays and two ceasefires, with 15-minutes between each of the five timeslots
  • No metal targets or .50 caliber BMG allowed
  • Pistol targets may be placed at 25 or 50 yards
  • Rifle targets may be placed at 50 or 100 yards

We appreciate the understanding of shooters as the above-mentioned protocols are temporarily placed on the KHSC firearm ranges. We are actively working to increase full-time and part-time staffing at KHSC, with interested applicants encouraged to contact staff at (808) 768-6715. Additional improvements are being pursued to make these firearm ranges more available for public use, including repairs to the separating wall to allow pistol and rifle ranges to operate independently.

Other permanent changes or continued KHSC operations include:

  • No eating, drinking or smoking allowed on the firing line
  • More stringent, regular cleaning protocols to remove lead particles from surfaces near the firing lines
  • D-lead soap provided in comfort station and at rifle-side portable sink
  • Protocols for testing / monitoring employees lead levels and impacts to hearing
  • Shooters must continue to provide their own:
    • Licensed firearm
    • Ammunition
    • Targets and target frame (measurements remain the same as before closure)
    • Ear and eye protection
  • All shooters must continue to sign-in with your name and firearm caliber(s)
  • All visitors must comply with KHSC signage, rules, and regulations
  • Archery range remains open on regular schedule (Wednesday through Sunday, sunrise to sunset) as staff are not required to be present to operate this facility

While these changes are significant, we hope shooters can enjoy the renovated facilities which were refurbished following the Sept. 2022 closure of the shooting complex. During that time a wide variety of improvements, repairs, and maintenance was conducted at the complex, including:

  • Backstop / berm renovations
  • Filled-in the rifle range ruts
  • Landscaping (mowing and weed whacking)
  • Carpentry to the overhanging eyebrows
  • Painting of structures and shooting galleries
  • Roofing repairs (including hurricane clips, repairs to damaged areas, and coating)
  • New target brackets
  • Improved shooting gallery amenities (such as setting areas)
  • Upgraded public address and ceasefire alert system
  • Masonry work on the range walls, pathways, and steps
  • Fencing along the mauka ranges
  • Installation of new signage
  • Pressure washing the firing line

During each phase of the above-mentioned work, air monitoring was conducted by an environmental consultant to measure levels of air-borne lead. All air-borne tests indicated that no lead dust was detected. This air monitoring will continue with the reopening of the firearm ranges. Testing for surfaces near the firing line did return detectable levels of lead, which is expected at a firearm range. This resulted in the implementation of more stringent, regular cleaning protocols to remove lead particles from these surfaces and the restriction of eating and drinking along the firing line.

 The Koko Head Shooting Complex does not provide any firearms for rent or ammuniton to sell.

 Eye and Ear Protection required.
