Beats the Desert

Private, safe, helpful but not hovering staff, open every day, shade, and even a building to shoot from!

We are a large shooting range near St. George, UT. We offer public shooting of pistol, rifle, and shotgun, as well as 12 to 16 practical shooting competitions a month. We are a non-profit 501(c)4 charity focused on promoting practical shooting, general shooting education and promoting the 2nd Amendment.

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.

If you cannot make the meeting, please let me know.
