The NWCSA pistol range consists of an enclosed 14 port range building with inward opening doors and shooting shelf, opening onto an approximately 50 yard range. This paper-target shooting facility can be used for defensive pistol or precision, bullseye-pistol practice or competitions. Shooting positions are located under cover in the lighted, heated building. There is also a range-ventilation fan system in place to eliminate fumes and smoke from the building.
The pistol range has a range-safety system which consists of several flashing/rotating amber beacon lights and a warning bell which are activated by shooters on the line or the Range Safety Officer to initiate a “cold range” condition.
Target lines are marked every 5 yards from 5 to 50 yards. Portable target frame mounting bases are available for use at the range, as well as H-frame target frames with cardboard backers that can be put out at any distance on the range. Events held at the pistol range include:
- .22 rimfire metal
- Centerfire and rimfire bullseye target matches
- Appleseed shooting training seminars
