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 to the public on Tuesday 3pm-7pm, Saturday and Sunday 9am to 4pm. We will be extending our public hours starting in May.

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.

Our first SUDS match went great. Defensive "shoot what you carry" matches help you gain confidence using what you carry and also tells you about your skill and gear.

The 4 scenarios Will be left up and available for your practice throughout the next couple weeks.

Congrats on his win too!

My husband doesn't have a Facebook account but he really enjoyed this and highly recommends it to any one that needs to build confidence in not only their carry but their mind set of how they are going to carry.

My main goal in learning to shoot was for self defense... today was the best day EVER shooting from scenarios that made us get in different positions, etc. This was AWESOME!!!

It was great. I highly encourage everybody to come out and give it a go. Come shoot with us!!

We had a blast/////////////// .............is was great and practical...........got to see how our carry guns would handle in different situations...........
