Action Pistol Range Info:

The Action Pistol Range Bays are configured with various obstacles and portable target stands or falling plates to simulate defensive pistol scenarios. The Action Pistol Pit was excavated on April 28th of 2008 and is located just east of the rifle range. This range area is surrounded by very high berms.  The pit contains 2 sets of falling plates and an action swinging target.  The first 2 Action Pistol Bays were excavated in the fall of 2013 and are roughly 8,000 & 10,000 square feet in size for an unlimited arrangement of action pistol shooting courses of fire.  IDPA & USPSA target holders are available. During 2015 and 2016 we have expanded the Action Pistol Ranges and have added 4 additional shooting bays. These additional bays are used in the Wednesday Action Pistol League.
