Steel Range

     Our Steel Range is the best place to enjoy your handguns in the world.  Steel targets are reactive.  They fall or ring loudly and swing when you hit one.  Steel is safe to shoot when set up correctly and at a safe distance.  All our steel is made from a very hard steel called AR500.  Its abrasion resistant and can't be hurt with standard handgun ammo.  Each of the shooting bays are nearly 8 feet wide, giving you and your group plenty of room to shoot together.  There are 20 of these bays.  Take a look at the pictures below.  A lot of work went into this monster of a range.  There are over 150 plates on this range that need shooting.

They hate me at Home Depot. This pile of lumber took 3 hours to pull and an hour to load.

Surprising to us, this thing ended up being square. Its straight. Amazing since we often have trouble cutting to boards and have them both be the same length.

Roof's on.

Got plenty of room to set your stuff down or rest. All the table tops are 7 1/2 feet wide and covered with outdoor carpet.
