    :cool: I AM IN THE LOS LUNAS AREA; ABOUT 2.5 HRS OR SO. YES, IT WOULD BE WORTH THE DRIVE TO SHOOT @ A GOOD RANGE LIKE THAT. OUT HERE IT'S OPEN RANGE BUT A REAL RANGE EVERY NOW & THEN IS NICE:cool:

    That sounds great !

    I will be in Las Cruces for several days in late April. Have a coupla questions:

    How do you get to the Butterfield Range ? Is it out west of the airport ?

    Can visitors use the range ? Does it have open hours or days ? Fees ?


    Thanks in advance for any advance intel.

    You got it, take the Corralitos exit off of I-10 and go west on the frontage road. The range is free and is first come first served for the shooting positions. It is closed Thursday's from 0800-1500 for maintenance.

    It's a decent range with target butts out to 1000 yards. You do have to watch for yahoos that shoot while people are down range posting targets though.
