What exactly do you consider "reasonable" as far as distance?

Cda, Last Time I Was In Co Sprgs (back In '94), There Was A Range Up On The Way To Rosemont Resevoir, Gold Camp Road Is The Name Of The Road. The Access, If Memory Serves Me, Is Up Past The Broadmoor And Cheyenne Mtn Zoo. It Was A Public Range (25 Yds Pistol/ 100 Yds Rifle). It Was Really A Simple Affair, You Had To Bring Your Own Bench. The Road Was Also Simple, Pickup Truck Or 4wd Was Needed If It Rained Or Snowed. Road Was Steep And Dirt. You At Ft Carson? They Had A 300yd Personally Owned Weapons Range Out By Gate 20. That's All I Can Recall For Now, Us Old Army Soldiers Need A Nap Every Now And Then.

When I was staioned at Carson, I always went out to dragonman's. Out east of town along Hwy 94, not even 20 minutes from post if traffic was good. I do not remember how long the range is, 200 yards iirc. But you can always rent a Thompson or a M2 while you are out there if you feel like throwing money down range. Pulled this info off the net, the address is good, but not sure about the phone#.

1225 Dragonman Dr.
Colorado Springs, Colorado 80929
(719) 683-2200


If you are looking for true long range stuff, and an actually range with facilities, I think there is one NE of Denver, but requires a membership, and then there is the big one down in Raton, NM. Hope this all helped some.

I don't mind driving 30-45 min...an hour if it is a good range.... Hell, memberships don't bother me either.. just some good shooting to 500 even further if I could...

There's always the range up Rampart Range Road out of Garden of the Gods. During the week it was always empty. On days with low clouds people usually don't go up either, but you're usually above them by the time you reach the range. 20min max from Garden of the Gods.

Lots of bighorn to watch on the way up too.
