Didn't they just open a new one up off of Charleston on SR159? Towards Red Rock.

There is also a good one out at Boulder City.



Duh...I just read 1000yd. I'm don't know.

Re: best range vegas

"Best" range near Vegas. Best is pretty subjective. If you are looking for a public 1,000 yard range the answer is there isn't one.

The Clark County Range up by the Air force base is not yet open;
Desert Sportsman (in Red Rock) only goes to 600 meters, and I recall it is member only (or invited guest);
Boulder Rifle and Pistol Club has the only 1,000 yard range in Southern Nevada (there may be one up near Reno - but I'm not sure about that). The 1,000 yard range at Boulder is only used part of the time (as in for NRA matches and scheduled practices), as it requires closure of the rest of the memeber ranges. The member range also has a steel target range that has steel starting at 110 yards out to 866. The public portion of Boulder has several 100 yard ranges, but taht is it other than pistol pits.

Re: best range vegas

Depending upon the month that you are here, Boulder will have at least 2 or 3 long range events during that time that would allow you to shoot at distances of 600 yards or beyond. Other then that, you'll need to have a member bring you on as a guest. Desert Sportsman hosts a tactical match every month except in teh summer with shooting out to 600 meters.

Other wise, and something that my brother and I do as frequentyl as possible is to venture to teh desert onto BLM land and shoot there (in our case out to 1,500 yards plus). We use several locations both north and south of Las Vegas. Some locations are walking only (vehicles prohibited), but firearms and shooting is allowed.

PM me and we can talk about when you are coming and what you want to do.
