These are not real ranges with benches and stuff, but people do go there to shoot. If you are from around Rapid you probably have heard of them.

Beretta Road - Hwy 16 south to Rushmore 11-12 miles past the waterslides and on your right will be a small sign Beretta Road.

Farmindale - Just past Farmingdale on Hwy 44 going east is Farmingdale-Folsom Rd it is a dirt road follow it for about a mile or 2 and there will be several shooting areas on your left. Be careful as people like to ride their quads behind the backstops. Which is why I prefer to go to Beretta road.

Here's the link to Bismarck/Mandan Rifle & Pistol Assn.

http://nd.rifleshooting.com/

There is a lot more done than the pictures indicate. The guy we had doing the website hasn't posted a new picture in 3 years. In that time we've put up 180' of covered firing line, a 24'x40' storage garage, a 24'x40' picnic and assembly area, and a 30'x40' clubhouse. Links to picures below.

We have a 1000 yard Hi Power range, an 18 point Bullseye pistol range, silhouette ranges (pistol, rifle, 22, and hi power), a Cowboy action group, and the list grows.

Shed, picnic area, and club house.

Do any of these clubs offer 3-gun, tactical, or practical rifle matches or courses?

Thanks for the post.

I know Garretson and Gary's does not!

i have a hard enough time going to Garretson just to plink.....

i always seem to go on the night where all those old drunks are shooting clays.

Er, Gary's Gun Shop does have 'tactical' shoots, to limited degree. IPSC it is not, but they do have moving shoots every once in a while. I think it's either monthly or weekly. Or at least it was 6 months back; I wasn't that interested in it because it was kind of expensive.

Outside of Williston, ND there is a range that I have never found documentation on. When I went there as a kid, it was an open range, free to the public, nobody to check in with, it was awesome. When no body was there, you had free range of the place. No directions to it, but I was able to pull it up on google maps:

http://www.google.com/maps?ie=UTF8&ll=48.091062,-103.641881&spn=0.002429,0.004828&t=h&z=18

Latitude & Longitude: +48° 5' 27.82", -103° 38' 30.77"

Haven't been back there forever so not sure if it's still a range or not, but give it a shot.

Be careful as people like to ride their quads behind the backstops. Which is why I prefer to go to Beretta road.


About 4 miles into the National Forest on Victoria Lake Road off Sheridan Lake Road west of Countryside, Red Rock, and Whispering Pines has been a popular shooting spot as well. However, recently an incident with some idiot shooting a cow as well as 7 new housing sites has raised sufficient safety concerns that the Forestry Service is shutting things down. The spot has also recently seen improvements with a circular parking area and pavilion constructed. However these will be used for posting trail head information and providing parking for hikers. Shooters will be fined. There has been some discussion that shooting will still be permitted much further in close to the junction with Route 365 but that hasn't been confirmed.

Farmingdale has two "benches" to shoot from. Unfortunately the firing lanes not only overlap but if the shorter one is in use the longer one is rendered unsafe. Go figure....

Beretta Road has recently seen a major cleanup operation with the National Guard removing fallen timber and large rocks. In past years the area was plagued by idiots who would not only leave shooting refuse behind (targets, boxes, general trash, etc.) but use the area as a dump. It wasn't unusual to see kitchen appliances hauled there for targets and left. Fortunately there have been several community groups that have gone in there and cleaned things up. Without them, the area was at risk of having shooting banned. Cattle also will commonly move through the area to graze.

Buffalo Chip has a nice complex on over 250 acres. Check out their website. Single annual memberships start at $165. Issues with availability of range safety officers allowing range use are improving with additional personnel being qualified.

Has anyone seen a new shooting area pop up around the Railroad Buttes area, Buffalo Gap National Grasslands. Since the shooting area was closed I see there is a map showing the closed area. Just wondering if anyone has explored the area outside the closure area and found a spot that could be used. Hard to find a area around Rapid City where u can shoot past 100 yards.

Smoking Gun Range and Training on the east side of Rapid City.

Very nice. Recognize some names from USPSA.

Hey guys, just moved to Watertown and looking for someplace to shoot. Been to the indoor range
here in town but they don't have the facilities for rifle bigger than .22lr. Anyone been to the
Outdoor Adventure Center down in Brookings? From the pics, looks like a nice place.
http://oacofsd.org/

or if anyone knows of an outdoor range close by, that would be great.
Thanks all.

Never been to the outdoor range in Brookings, but the new indoor one is very nice. A little rule heavy but they allow up to .308 I believe.

The indoor range at the Outdoor Adventure Center (now that's an oxymoron) is great! Rifles are no problem but it's only 25 yards so it's really only good for .22 or sight-in.

Beacon Hill is the outdoor range WNW of Brookings/Volga. The facilities are a bit rudimentary and the target backers always seem in disrepair but it's the only game in/near town. Hours are pretty limited so make sure you check their calendar online. Same with the OAC.

It's pretty nice, but I haven't been to any other indoor ranges, so I lack a frame of reference. Still, I had some decent range time. The programmable targets are fun, staff was respectful and accommodating. Pricey...
