The range was started in the 1995 time frame and is on 600 acres of  BLM land that is leased to COSSA. The range has various bays that range from 50 yards to 1000 yards in length. We have a 200 yard sighting in target range and metal gongs to 500 yards. A pistol sighting in range to 100 yards with metal gongs at 100 yards. We have a 1000 yard black powder range and a high power rifle range to 1000 yards. It is not uncommon to have several disciplines or activities using the range at the same time.
