About Us

Distinguished Pistol Outdoor Shooting Range


Welcome!  Bassi Ranch at Hightowers, North Carolina, is home to the Distinguished Pistol Outdoor Shooting Range.  We teach safety and marksmanship skills to new shooters!  Everyone is welcome to join us for a wonder marksmanship experience!

We are a small family owned and operated business that caters primarily to new shooters.  

We teach the basics here, like how to handle a firearm safely and how to load, shoot and maintain a firearm.  

At Distinguished Pistol, we're all about having fun!  As far as we're concerned, nothing beats the rush you get from shooting a 50 caliber revolver or a .30-06 hunting pistol!  If you're anything like us, after your first shot, you'll be hooked on competitive shooting forever.  Whether you're interested in honing your marksmanship skills, entering one of our unique shooting matches, or just trying out some different handguns, rifles or shotguns ... here at Bassi Ranch is the place you'll want to be.

We support the NRA!  As a part of our new member ranch tour, we encourage everyone to join the National Rifle Association to help promote our sports shooting industry and protect our Second Amendment rights.  

A Tradition of Bullseye Marksmanship

Pistol shooting can be more than just a leisure activity! Come chat with Master-Class Shooter Clint Hilbert and learn more about handgun safety and how to improve your overall shot-group and marksmanship skill.

It's our goal to get folks involved in outdoor shooting sports and to recruit new shooters for all disciplines!
