What is a gun range?

A gun range is a facility built to use firearms, whether in a recreational sense or as training and practice for competitions or professional duties.

Indoor Gun Range activities

Safety is of utmost importance in a gun range

An indoor gun range will usually have several shooting booths or lanes. Each lane will have its target, either paper or cardboard. Indoor ranges operated by shooting clubs will also have amenities dedicated to lounges, cafes, private meeting rooms, or gun displays. Some gun ranges will also have a viewing deck where guests who are not shooting can safely watch as shooters practice and hit their targets.

Outdoor Gun Range

An outdoor gun range provides more variety in terrain and conditions

An outdoor gun range is often found in more rural areas with more space to ensure that shooters don’t hit anyone by accident. Gun range activities in outdoor spaces can be more varied. Shooting clay targets are an option, and depending on the range, long-distance shooting may also be allowed. Outdoor ranges can also offer shooting enthusiasts more challenging terrain where they have to consider uncontrollable elements such as wind and sunlight while they shoot.
