    We have designed this range for shooters that want to use their AR’s and handguns as they were meant to be shot in real-world applications with no limit on number of rounds in magazine or rate of fire, from rapid-fire AR shooting to quick-draw pistol shooting to rifle & pistol transition drills (move and shoot) using paper targets or bowling pins or even electronic targets capable of timing your shooting down to hundreds of a second. It’s a rather remarkable system and is very easy to setup and change scenarios (how many shots does it take to knock down the target, where on the target is it required to hit before target drops, how many targets will pop-up at a time, etc).

    We have designed six ranges at this facility:
    • 33-yard (100 feet x 50 feet) flat pistol caliber range: This range allows traditional pistol shooting, quick draw, pistol transition drills (move and shoot). Targets include paper targets, bowling pins, and metal targets. We have a car to shoot out of or around, seven 55-gallon drums, metal targets, dueling tree, 10+ paper target holders, picnic table to shoot from, two 9-hole shooting obstacles, and a breach door for members to use anytime. Any pistol caliber weapon is allowed including submachine guns. No rifle calibers allowed. All targets must be positioned so that shots impact the back-stop.
    • 50-yard rapid-fire range: This range has 25-foot covered shooting area and 25 feet uncovered. This area allows you to shoot machine guns, shotguns, weapons with slide-fire stocks, or simply “how fast can I pull the trigger on my AR or pistol”, plus rifle and pistol transition drills (move and shoot). Any type of weapon with any size caliber s are allowed. All targets must be positioned so that shots impact the back-stop.
    • 30-foot Quick Draw Pistol Range: This range’s primary use is for holster practice at a short distance, including Quick Drawing. Handgun only range with pistol calibers only. All targets must be positioned so that shots impact the back-stop.
    • 140-yard AR Tactical Range: Range has metal targets at 50, 75, 100, 110, 120, 140 yards. Only rifles chambered in 5.56/223 are allowed. Semi-auto only shooting. No limit on rate of fire or number of rounds in magazines. No one allowed down range.
    Shooters can only target preplaced metal targets from 50 to 140 yards.
    • ~300-yard Rifle Range: (UNDER CONSTRUCTION) – Estimated completion date of 31-March-2018. The range will have 20+ metal targets from 100 to 300+ yards.
    • ~150-yard Bunker Range: (In planning stages) – Estimated completion date of 1-June-2018. The range will have military style bunkers with pop-up targets. 5.56 AR only.

    Basic rules of the range:
    • Shooting hours are 10:00 am to 10:00 pm Monday to Saturday and 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm on Sundays. (Range is open 365 days a year)
    • Only paper targets can be brought onto the range.
    • No one under 16 years old is ever permitted on the gun range or in the parking lot.
    • Once a month, a member is allowed to bring a non-member to use the range at no cost. Non-members are limited to TWO visits.

    Default Re: Washington County Tactical Range accepting new members

    You guys seem very interesting. I recently moved here, but maybe in a couple months or so I may look into joining, but already in the process of joining another range that has shotgun areas. Just don't want the only range I'm a member of not to have a place to shoot all my guns and don't have the economics yet to buy both
