Private Bays

28 bays, ranging to 100 yards. We never run out of places for you to shoot. All bays have shade, table and target stands. Cost for a standard bay is FREE. For bays with steel targets, tactical stages, and electronic clay throwers, join (low cost) or pay a nominal use fee.


Open Every Day

We are open every day. Call to schedule a particular bay, or just show up. Current hours are 2PM to 8PM on weekdays, 8AM to 2PM Saturday/Sunday. Any pistol, pistol caliber carbine, .22 rifle/pistol, or .223/5.56 (or similar ballistics) rifleĀ are welcome.

Pro Shop

Need ammo, eye protection, ear protection, or some other shooting need? Our well stocked pro-shop has what you need for an enjoyable shooting outing. Even cold (or hot) drinks and snacks.


Fun, Friendly, Not Hovering

Our staff are experts at two things… guns and being friendly. If you need help, they will help. If you want to just shoot, they will leave you alone. Their primary mission is to keep everybody safe, and to then make sure you have a great trip to the range.

Reminder: Tuesday night steel tonight, 3:00-600!

Unfortunately our credit card merchant (Square) revoked our card processing privileges (they are anti-gun and don't like what we do here), so we can only except cash tonight.

Dave BartonSeems like discrimination. A company is forced to bake a cake for people or they are fined heavily for discrimination. This is the same damn thing.
