2013: NEW RESTRICTIONS ON INEXPERIENCED SHOOTERS
Safety is our primary concern at the range and the recent closure of the shooting range in Slaton has meant a drastic increase in the number of shooters here. As a result we have had to institute a new policy. We cannot allow novice (new, inexperienced) shooters to shoot here, and we will not allow them to be instructed by family members, friends or outside instructors at this range. This is a matter of safety and there will be no exceptions made. We do have an excellent instructor and, after one lesson with him, novice shooters will be allowed to shoot here. We realize that this may pose an inconvenience for some people, but safety is paramount at Patriot Range.
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

$12 per day. This includes Police, Sheriff's Office,
FBI, ATF, U.S. Marshals, DPS and Game Wardens. Please
be prepared to present your credentials. We understand
