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.

Can we borrow a light tower?

We want to explore lighting Tuesday Steel stages so we can start squads later after working hours.

If you have access to one, we'd welcome borrowing it to check out. We have power, but we are having trouble getting masts tall enough. Using these would be a stop gap til we sorted that out.

New to Tuesday Steel? Ken Nelson, your Wednesday Night Handun Mastery Clinic instructor (and SUPS President) is happy to guide you. He will be at the Pro Shop at 5:15 and will take a group out at 5:30.

This is Ken's first match back after surgery and a 3 month motorcycle trip in Europe. So he will be rusty, but he's eager to get back to it, and happy to help you, your family and friends on getting started.

P.S. Ken is super friendly and a great coach who never yells.

P.P.S. He wrote this.

You can email him kn@kennelson.com or text (435) 703 2897 to RSVP if you like.

Southern Utah Practical Shooting Rangeit's a battle belt with cobra buckle. super easy to thrown on and off. Not the fastest rig, it's what I use when teaching or when I'm in the "just get back in the groove" mode.
