Yes, Our Ranges Are Currently Open to non-members!

Come on out!  Access to all of our ranges is available for visitors and newcomers during regular operating hours!  Range rules apply to all visitors and non-members.

Distinguished Pistol is North Carolina's premiere FULL SERVICE outdoor shooting complex.  If you happen to forget something on the way here, no worries ...we've most likely got it!   As a family-friendly range, we allow children from ages 9 to 17, so long as parents are present.  Children may come in groups, but parents (or legal guardians) must provide written permission and a signed DP waiver beforehand.  Our ADA shooting lane is also available for those needing physical assistance; it comes with its own private parking, but please call ahead. 

ATTENTION!  Please check our calendar page for changes to our hours of operation before coming out to the ranch (click here), as changes may happen to accommodate special events or range maintenance operations.

Got FAQs?

Q.  Why should I consider a DP membership?

A.   Your DP Annual Membership saves you money on frequent range usage as compared to hourly rental fees or day passes, and it gives you access to the DP Café (not open to the public), our special members-only events, and to our DP Academy and DP Pro Shop.  DP members also get priority reservations on renting our first-class outdoor venues like the event field (bocce ball courts, horseshoes & hatchet/knife throwing), the DP Tiki Bar & Grill and The Fire Pit.  All DP members are invited to our Spring BBQ!!!

Q.  As a member, may I bring several guests with me to the range?  

A.  Yes, guests may accompany you for $20 each person and you can bring as many guests as you would like!  If more than six guests are joining you, please call ahead and reserve your lanes to ensure there's availability.  

Q.  Are there any other charges or fees that I should know about?

A.  Yes, there are Standard Service & Range Usage Fees.  Always ask about usage fees before engaging target systems.  There's a $5 surcharge for the maintenance of any steel plate target systems you use, per individual.  Steel plates are expensive and have maintenance costs, such as daily painting, bolt replacements and post repairs.  Also, you will have to purchase all paper targets, $1 for members and $2 for non-members.  Automated paper changers (at the 200-yard line pit targets on the rifle range) include a $5 cycle fee for pulling new paper, each clean pull of paper is limited to 40 rounds.  Automated popper plate systems are 10 single plate resets for $5.  There is a $5 target fee for the square bag-targets on archery, and an $8 fee for using the 3-D animal field.
