Welcome to Patriot
Handgun ownership is a serious responsibility and you should know that your training at Patriot Range is provided by a highly qualified and credentialed instructor who is a professional educator. We don't cut corners either in classroom instruction or in the shooting exam, and if you take your course from us you can be confident that you are well versed in your rights and responsibilities as a concealed license handgun owner.
We have a superbly qualified instructor and we have posted his resume on the CHL page.
Yes, we do the
shooting exam and
photographs right here as part of the package! Due
to a change in State regulations, you must now
contact the State for fingerprints - see the
CHL link above for instructions.

October and November class schedules are available.
Free shooting with a CHL class deposit. We do not require a deposit for you to sign up for CHL class. However, a 50% deposit will get you a certificate for a free day of shooting. You can use this to practice before the required shooting proficiency exam in the CHL course or you can use it later. Either way it is a $15 thank you card for taking your CHL training here and placing a deposit so that we are more certain about the class size each week.
9MM ammunition is now included as part of the course at no extra charge. CHL class participants will be given, at no extra cost, a 50-round box of ammunition for use in the qualifying exam. Other calibers will be discounted by whatever 9mm costs. We are pleased to bring this feature back now that the ammunition shortage is easing.
College students with a valid ID can
shoot for $12 per day. You must be 21 to rent a
gun or buy ammo.
This is a great deal. Women can come in on Sunday, pay a just a $12 range fee plus tax and use a rental gun for free. Like all persons who desire to rent handguns at Patriot, women wishing to participate in the Sunday special must be proficient with a handgun (see information in the right hand column of this page regarding handgun rentals). Women who are beginners or novices are also welcome with arrangements for range-approved instruction (additional instructional fees may apply).
Pistol Association is a fun way to learn to use your
pistol for self defense. We stress safety and

us. Coffee and donuts are provided. Please call us

gunhandling considerations. IDPA begins at 9:00 am

AUGUST 2013: INEXPERIENCED SHOOTERS READ THIS
Safety is our primary concern at the range. We understand that some people have little or no experience with handguns and we want them to be able to practice and become more proficient. We will gladly provide novice shooters a short 5-minute lesson on handgun safety. However, because we need to watch the shooters on the line, we donít have time for more thorough instruction. We ask that novice shooters wishing to shoot here honestly consider whether they have the skills to operate a handgun safely after our short 5-minute lesson. If so then they are welcome to go to the shooting line. However, we will stop any shooter that we deem to be unsafe. Shooters who do not feel like they can be safe, or those who think they need more instruction, are welcome to sign up for an individual lesson with Jason, our superb shooting instructor.
NO BLACK POWDER
This is a PISTOL RANGE (and rimfire rifles like .22). No centerfire rifles are permitted.
We are a Class II Manufacturer and a dealer of Class III weapons.
ENFORCEMENT AND MILITARY DISCOUNT
military and law enforcement personnel can shoot for
$12 per day. This includes Police, Sheriff's Office,

We would be happy to demonstrate our Dillon 1050, 650, and 550 models for you. (It is really no trouble since we use them every day.) We will configure your Dillon loader for one caliber before it leaves our store.
Members can shoot all day, every day if they wish. Yearly rates are $350 for an individual or $450 for a family. If you plan to shoot more than twice a month, a membership is the more economical way to go. Members only need to pay for the targets they shoot. There are no extra hidden fees. Also, members can use any of our rent guns at no cost (although they still have to use our ammunition). Read about the expanded member benefits (September 2013).
