A dynamic true north-facing outdoor range designed and built for pure rifle shooting pleasure! No more walking down range to change targets. Our rifle range has three courts: (1) the Bad Ass Steel Plate Run with a "pick-3" selection from over 20 steel plates (now in operation), (2) the Pit Targets with automatic paper changers (construction in progress), and (3) the Popper Field with five automatic resetting plates per shooting lane (also, underway and coming soon). As with all precision rifle ranges, you must first provide a qualifying zero and then take careful aim on all shots fired. This is a fun and challenging precision-based slow fire range!
Rifle shooting is a "whole body" skill and we teach the basics. During normal hours, all shooting is done at the benches, except for the standing pad. We offer a single standing pad with a barrel support for limited shooting in the standing position during normal hours. To learn more about prone, sitting, kneeling and standings techniques, please arrange for a private training session.
Don't have a rifle? No problem, just show up. You'll have a great learning session that will help you understand rifle safety and marksmanship basics. If you own a rifle, we will help you zero your rifle's sights and get you close to the center of your target! The rest comes with practice! Chances are, you will spend some time on the rifle sighting lane before moving to the 300 yard range.
Each section of our rifle range (courts) has its own course-of-fire and scoring card. Simply select the course-of-fire and start shooting. You can challenge yourself to do better each time, or bring a group of friends and start your own competition!
NO RAPID FIRE!!! 3 SECONDS PER ROUND!!! MAGNET-TEST ALL AMMO!!!
The DP Rifle Range is designed for precision shooting, not for CQB or tactical shooting.
All firearms must be inspected, zeroed and tagged on the main range!
The range has three sections (courts): (1) Popper Field, (2) Paper-Pit, and (3) Steel Plate Run. A lane must be rented and a ticket must be purchased for each section of shooting, and shooters will be limited to either a specific number of rounds or one hour of time, whichever comes first. “Aim small, miss small.” If you are consistently missing all of your targets by large margins, you will be asked to re-zero your firearm at the main range. Shooters are accountable for rounds that are not properly aimed at range targets!

Q. So, what about CQB training with my rifle?
A. We teach Close Quarters Battle tactics which is performed on the shorter ranges and in the pits. At 300 yards, you are no longer in close quarters, so save the rapid fire for the pits! All CQB training is done by appointment.
Q. Can I bring my own rifle ammunition to shoot at the steel plates?
A. Yes, but your ammo must be magnet tested and you are liable for any damage to range equipment and plate targets. We are very strict regarding the ammunition that can be used on the steel plates. In addition to all ammunition being magnet tested, ammo must be clearly labeled by the manufacturer to ensure the projectiles do not contain any solid copper or alloy cores, steel or tungsten alloys, or do not have magnum speeds of more than 3,000 fps at 100 yards! Most copper jacketed and soft nose bullets are permitted on our steel plates. We do not allow color-tipped ammo, such as green-tip, incendiary and tracer rounds, and tungsten allows.
