Pueblo City Park Gun Range
The 10 lane gun range at Pueblo City Park has a long history it has been at this location for over 50 years. Many member and non-members use the facility thru out the year. The gun range is primarily a handgun range some .22 cal rimfire rifles are allowed. In the handgun arena, no handguns bigger than a .44 mag are allowed and no handguns firing shotshells are permitted. That means a .50 Cal S&W is not allowed or a .454 Casual. But it can be confusing .45 ACP and .45 Long Colt are allowed. No rifles firing centerfire ammunition, so the 9mm carbines are off limits, and any of the AR pistols are out. When in doubt don’t shoot.
The Pueblo City Park Gun Range is open to the public Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights from 7pm-9pm. There is a $10 fee for each shooter. Ear protection and eye protection are provided if you do not have your own. Targets are available for purchase and sometimes ammunition is available. The Pueblo City Park Gun Range will be manned on public nights by some of the finest RSO’s (NRA Range Safety Officers) volunteers. These people are there to see that the non-members abide by the rules and handle their firearms safely. Many of the volunteer staff was trained by me when I was the Chief Range Safety Officer for the range.
The Pueblo City Park Gun Range is open to members 24-7 except when other events are scheduled (Board Meetings, Shooting events and Maintenance). A nominal fee of $2 is charged when members shoot. Each person is responsible to clean up after themselves and leave the facility in better shape than they found it.
There is a nice big meeting room as you walk into the building at the Pueblo City Park Gun Range and this is where I have held many classes over the years. I have trained many students in that room and on the shooting range both for the range and my private classes. The Free Gun Safety Class that is required of all new members was developed and taught in that room by me when I was in charge of that program. Most of the time I hold my firearms classes in my private classroom downtown but sometimes a bigger place is nice with room for many people. As a Certified Instructor with my credentials in place at the range, I have the availability to use the facilities when the need arises. See Fall/Winter Newsletter.
