Beats the Desert

Private, safe, helpful staff, open every day, free, shade, snacks, ammo, supplies.

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.

Hours: FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER: We are currently only open to the general public on Tuesdays 3:00pm-7:00pm and Saturday/Sunday 8:00AM-5:00 PM. Competitive shooting events will be run as scheduled.

Daily public hours will be resumed in October.

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 but only by Appointment this week.

The week of 6 thru 12 Feb we are open every day but only by appointment. We have a large match we are hosting. We have space but can’t spare staff for general checkins. Call, text or email to coordinate. Tuesday Steel is as normal. Saturday/Sunday matches are replaced the Berry’s Steel Open.

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.

With SUPS fully engaged preparing for our next big match, USPSA Area 1, Tuesday Night Steel will be postponed until April 4th. The TNS MDs and SUPS staff will take this opportunity to re-charge and think of awesome TNS stages for you.

Thank you for your understanding.

We face an avalanche of large events coming at us over the next month:

- a huge competition training camp with visitors from all over
- pre-deployment exercises / training for a larger military unit
(which we are thrilled to support)
- the largest match in the country (Area 1 Champ) at end of March

Plus uncertain weather thru all of it.

To help us get all of this done we will be shutting down to walk-on public shooting thru 3 April. We will also not be holding USPSA matches in Saturday/Sunday. Instead we ask normal competitors come on out, bring gloves and a friend, and help us build the Area match.

We will have space, just not bandwidth to devote to checkins. So thru that period we are going to be open by appointment only. Call or text if you or your group wish to come out and shoot. When we know you are coming and we can meet and set you up.

After April, things return to normal, only with longer hours due to longer days and better weather.

These events pay for the range, so they have to be done. Sometimes they all line up tightly and we have to make accommodations.

Finding Us (it’s easy!)

Know where the DMV is?
Then you almost know where we are. Just go right past the DMV and follow the signs. If you get turned around contact us at (435) 625-1745.

We are a ginormous shooting range that never runs out of places for you to shoot.
We have hundreds of targets (steel), target stands, tables, bench rests, clay throwers, shade – everything you need for a fun shooting outing.
