FORT CARSON, Colo. (CBS4) – The largest outdoor shooting range in Colorado will open to the public on Wednesday.
The Cheyenne Mountain Shooting Complex is located just outside Fort Carson’s Gate 20 near Interstate 25.
Although the shooting range is on Fort Carson property, visitors won’t have to enter the military base. The shooting complex is open to the public on weekends and exclusively to law enforcement during the week. Admission is $10.
The complex consists of seven shooting ranges with approximately 120 covered shooting positions. Three ranges are designated for rifles with distances from 300 to 500 yards. There are also four designated pistol ranges and one multi-position range prioritized for law enforcement and public safety training purposes.
There is also a small archery range at the complex.
The complex is a joint project between Fort Carson, El Paso County, the U.S. Forest Service and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Profits from the range will be used to fund the Fort Carson FMWR program, which supports Soldiers and their Families.
