Designed and placed into construction in 2011, the Distinguished Pistol handgun range opened for membership in 2016. The range is a unique five-court design and is similar to the types of ranges used in competitive matches. "Our range is a true north-facing outdoor range ... which is a big deal when you are shooting outside, because you want the sun behind you, not in your eyes, and shining on your target, not a silhouette in a shadow," says Clint Hilbert, owner. "All thirteen lanes are covered and there are automatic edging targets at the 25-yard line (set up for true National Match competition) and static targets at the 30' and 50'. We also have several lanes with retractable targets to the 50-foot line and a fully adjustable ADA lane with its own private parking space."
All new shooters receive hands-on safety training to help them with their first shots. However, if you are new to shooting, we recommend taking our Firsts Shots class, or scheduling a private session with one of our instructors on Thursdays and Fridays when the ranges are not so busy. Additional instruction is offered on self-defense with a handgun, firearms safety education, and the fundamentals of marksmanship. As shooters advance their skills, we offer specialized training for the more experienced shooters and seasoned competitors.
All you have to do is ask! Our members and guests often receive specialized training in several disciplines, namely: (1) self-defense with a concealed handgun, (2) sport tactical (IDPA, USPSA & IPSC) and (3) precision bullseye, also known as National Match. It doesn't stop there, we also provide guidance on black powder pistols, air pistols and much more.
